~ Halloween Mantel Decorating - Black & White

Halloween decorating! I love Halloween. For those of you who might know Beau Bunny Rabbit Bandito, yes, that is his mask. I think he got into the snickers, took off his mask and took a snooze! Silly rabbit. That garland, banner of Trick or Treat came with skulls. I printed some smaller pictures  of Beau Bunny with his Jack O Lantern and Raven and added them instead. Much  better.

The mantel is mostly black and white again this year, with a few touches of light pumpkin to celebrate the Fall season. Our Halloween decor is never too dark and scary around here. But we do like a tiny bit of spooky, so the ravens are back again. Although I don't like spiders in real life, these glittered ones are such perfect accent so they come by to add another spooking touch.

The black and white art I've had for so many years and I've never thought of incorporating it into my Halloween decorating. It is a welcome addition to the black and white scheme.

Stay tuned the next couple of weeks for more Halloween ideas, close up pictures and a few tutorials on somethings you might want to add to your festivities.

See Y'All Soon~

  1. I'm new to your blog, so I don't know Beau Bunny, but he looks adorable on the garland! And *two* pics of him... he must be bursting with pride!

    Your mantle is beautiful! The black-and-white art hanging above it really pulls your color scheme together. The raven perched on the top corner adds the perfect touch.: )


  2. The black and white theme for Halloween is stunning and unique. I'm looking forward to more of your Halloween decorating tips.

  3. I love this, Donna! Great harlequin urn. Love the banner and how the mask hangs off the mantel like that. The black and white print does work great here! I like how you put a bird at the top of that, too.

  4. Love, love it! Of course, I adore black & white. :) The Trick or Treat banner is perfect! Can you come over and decorate for me?


  5. Just beautiful. I love the black and white. Fantastic job love the banner.
