Like many, Fall is my favorite season. And the joke in my house is that I’m not allowed to start decorating for Christmas (or playing its music) as early as I want to. From Halloween to Christmas I love to make our home, inside and out, as warm and festive as possible. This year I had the idea that I’d somehow like to create motifs that could be slightly altered to work for both Halloween and Thanksgiving. So I asked Posey Events to bring in some unexpected Halloween decorations – the blackbirds are my favorite – but that could be easily removed and replaced with corn, squash, gourds and so on when Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is approaching. I’m so happy with how it came out. Stay tuned for the Thanksgiving transformation!
