I didn't decorate for Halloween this year, which kind of bugged me. I've never been one to decorate a ton for a holiday, but lately I'm finding myself drawn toward elaborate vignettes, charming DIY displays, and cute little decorations for all of the different holidays. Maybe it's the teacher in me? Who knows. What I DO know is that I scored some major loot yesterday at Meijer (a regional grocery/department store, kind of like Wal-Mart), and I'm looking forward to putting it up in our house next year.
Check out what I got, and see if you can guess what I spent (without going over, of course!):
|Glass and metal yard stand that actually works through Thanksgiving (disregard the unkempt flower bed behind it...)|
|Metal pumpkin trick or treat sign|
|A metal sign (glittery!) and metal pumpkin wreath (also glittery!)|
|Crow, Owl, skeleton, two candle holders, a Yankee Candle tumbler (in Candy Corn!) and 12 Yankee Candle tealights|
|2 pumpkins, and two signs (they're still in the boxes here)|
|I adore these pumpkins!!|
|And a cute little ghost cookie plate|
So, did you guess how much I spent?
If you guessed $40.71, you would be correct!! I was floored at the 75% off sale, and ended up saving a whopping $115.50 had I bought them at full price. Now they're all packed away in a little tote in the basement, waiting 363 days until they can be used again :)
Do you do a lot of decorating for holidays? Where are the best places to find deals?
