Here are some simple ways to give your home a "touch of autumn".
Start with your Front Door. Doors are the entry way into your home! If you have a container or wreath that hangs on your door it is easy to change the content for the seasons. To celebrate Halloween, add mini-pumpkins, picks of gourds and fall flowers. You can add some halloween picks, a spooky ghost or wire on small bats or witches. When Halloween is over, take those decorations off/out of your arrangement and add other similar harvest decorations for Thanksgiving.For your Table Scape: Keep in mind these three key elements for styling a beautiful table: Height, color and texture. Fall flowers such as mums, pansies, and dahlias are blooming, the leaves change to brilliant reds and golds (in some parts of the country), acorns drop to the ground and the pumpkins and gourds are available at the market.
- Dark Orange
- Warm Yellow
Don't forget the fireplace! Put some birch logs in your fireplace when it's not in use. Place a basket filled with pinecones or willow twigs at the hearth. Embellish your mantle with garlands, pumpkins and your family halloween decorations.
Create Memories: Each year when we bring our holiday boxes out of the attic the kids gather round to pull out their favortie decorations. As you enjoy them throughout that specific holiday it is fun to remember when/where you got them or who made them for you. Seated on the bench is Miss"Fancy Pumpkin". It just wouldn't be Halloween without her! She's the cutest thing since carved pumpkin and she knows it.
We especially love the whimsical designs of Lori Mitchell. Pictured here is a wire tree adorned with vintage ornaments and our favorites: Jack Squash and Trixie. The halloween sign is by artist, Johanna Parker.
On the shelf are the Vintage Clown Boy, and the primitive Halloween Snowman Votive . Some of our other favorites are little clay pumpkins that were made in kindergarden and a white painted "ghost" foot print on black construction paper. I think my daughter's foot still tickles when she sees it:) Truly Treasures!
Happy Halloween from Pineapple Hill!

- Small, new terra-cotta pots
- Acrylic paint in yellow, orange, and white
Candy-Corn Pot How-To:
- Tuck handfuls of candy corn into giants of their species.
- Use a pencil to mark stripes on pots.
- Brush on acrylic paints between lines to make bands, letting each color dry before moving on to the next.
- When painting the top stripe, go over the lip of pot and paint inside (so it will look good even as it's emptied).
- Tuck in a note or scary message.
Such an awesome cute idea! Great for kids parties, a nice alternative to the gift “baggy” and can be reused for various things (i.e. pencil holder, etc.)

1. Place the book in the center of the paper and fold the paper against the top and bottom edges of the book to make creases. Remove the book and fold the paper down neatly along these creased lines, keeping folds smooth and even.2. Place the closed book on the folded paper, 2 inches away from the right side; wrap the long side of the paper around the front cover of the book and crease along the edge of the front cover. (It's important to do this with the book closed, or the cover will be too tight.)3. Remove, fold crisply, then open the book and slide the front cover into the created sleeve. Close the book and crease the other end of the paper against its back cover. Fold down, then open the back cover and slide it into the created sleeve.Pineapple Hill Designs
