It's no huge secret, I am a Halloween junkie. I started decorating even before the end of September. I am not ashamed to say, I Looooove Halloween. It's probably my very favorite time of year, with the cooler temps, beautiful Fall colors, on all the trees and all the ghosts and ghoulies, what's not to love?!
I have a very eclectic decor, throughout my home. I have a few thrift store finds, as well as the hand me downs my Mom gives me, when she changes up her decor. To say I have a little bit of everything, is an understatement. It's a little bit eccentric, but I like it, it's "Me". To walk in and see a bleeding skull candle, burning on the table, would not be too far out of the realm of possibility. What?! Bleeding skull candle?! Yep! I found this awesome little gem at World Market, a couple of weeks ago.
World Market, the store you know and love, for all things AWESOME, has just gotten a little bit awesomer, with their new Halloween decor collection. Check out a few of the goodies I snagged, last week, on my trip....
I have little spooky touches everywhere throughout my house, but this year, I focused most of my attention on the kitchen, as that seems to be where I spend the majority of my time, lately. I kid, but not really. When I was shopping, I found this amazing Spellbook cookie jar that I just knew would look amazing, as the centerpiece to my table.
The store was filled with so many awesome Halloween decor goodies and so many different themes, including a ton of Dia de los Muertos items, to commemorate the October 13th release of the Fox movie, "Book of Life", starring the voices of Channing Tatum, Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana and many more.
"Book of Life" is an animated tale of a Romeo and Juliet-inspired love story set during a "Day of the Dead" celebration.
Manolo (Diego) is a young matador who wants to shed the expectations of his family to follow his dreams of being a musician and his best friend, Joaquin (Channing), is the successful pride of the town. They compete for the heart of Maria (Zoe). In order to win Maria’s heart and save her life, Manolo must face his greatest fears and follow his heart to rewrite his destiny.
In honor of the new movie, World Market is giving away an amazing trip to the Riviera Maya, a $1000 World Market gift card FREE movies for a year. There will also be 3 runner up prizes of a $500 World Market gift card. Get more info on "The Book of Life" movie and enter to win the amazing World Market "Book of Life" sweepstakes.
Here's my nod to the "Day of the Dead" theme, DIY Dia de los Muertos candle holders, using some skull shot glasses and these coolsugar skull taper candles. There's really no "D" in this DIY, it's just hot glue and hope. (Hope the don't fall and break, before the party starts). They are a bit top heavy, but I think that could be fixed with some colored sand or rice. Isn't thespiderweb tablecloth amazing?! You can even get the skull container and candy eyeballs at World Market, too. (I plan to keep the skull and use it, as part of our homeschool curriculum, later on)
If you don't have room for a full tablescape, no worries, you can always add smaller touches and get the same effect. This adorable potion bottle measuring cup set, fits right in, on any countertop and best of all, they are fully functional and the cool potion bottles add a fun, whimsical touch to any space.
You don't have to spend tons of money, to have a fun and spooky Halloween season, head out to your local World Market and grab a couple of necessities and get to decorating. Halloween will be here, before you know it, then it's on to Thanksgiving. Happy Haunting!
