We're Decorating for Halloween!

Meows from Mudpie!

This week Mommy has been doing a little redecorating around our house. She says she's putting up "Halloween decorations". Now I'm still new to this Halloween thing, but I think some of the ghosts and witches she's putting out are just plain scary! Who's going to protect me from these things when I wander out into the living room alone for a snack in the middle of the night???

Thankfully, the majority of our decorations are cat related, of course, and I thought you might like to see some of our favorites!

These first three pieces are from the Yankee Candle Boney Bunch collection. First, the Cat Lady, an online exclusive released this year:


The limo driver surrounded by cats was also released this year, and is available in Yankee Candle stores:

This cat & pumpkin Boney Bunch figure came out a couple years ago:

Mommy also collects some of the Lemax Spooky Town Halloween Village pieces. She buys them at Michael's, and with their weekly 40% off coupons you can get them for a great price!

Vicki's Cattery is the centerpiece of our Halloween decorations:

Happy Howl-O-Ween, with black cats on a fence:

Black Cat Adoption Day:

She's had this sign for years and leaves it out year 'round:

We have lots of Annalee cats...all purchased at a discount at HomeGoods and TJ Maxx. This is our favorite:

Do you enjoy decorating for Halloween? 
Do you have any favorite decorations that you use each year?

I love you decoration collection, truly cute!.This year my daughter put a "cute" witch in our front yard so we'd have something Halloween visible. Normally, we decorate for Fall with pumpkins, colored leaves, etc. Just easier on my body and our budget.

Yes, I have cute purple bat lights, a pose able skeleton for the front door, Halloween angels, cats, etc.

Wow! Those are pawsome Halloween decorations. The mom has some...most are cat related like yours. She hasn't put them out yet. Maybe she will today!

I love all of these! I just started decorating and I'm missing two boxes of figurines! I can't find them in all the Christmas stuff. Don't want to pull everything out to sort through them, but I know I will. LOL

We don't have any Halloween decorations or any pumpkins - in fact we don't bother with Halloween too much at all.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Pop always decorates for Halloween cos it’s his birthday too! This year he might not cos his back is so achy. There are some decorations that go back to Gramma’s day. I love all your decorations and wish we could still afford them.

Those are truly fabulous Halloween decorations. I only grab some pumpkins (stuffed) that I've had for years and reuse them every year.

I LOVE all your decorations! I bought the cat lady from Yankee Candle the day it came out :) I like Annalee too, but had never seen that black cat- very nice. I have a little Halloween village instead of a Christmas one.

Your mommy really likes Howl-o-ween. Our mom has a couple of Howl-o-ween decorations but hasn't got them out for a couple of years. We think you have tempted her to do it this year. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
