This is our first Halloween in our first home, and I’ve been looking forward to decorating ever since we hit September. Since we’re newbies at this, my husband and I had a “spirited” quarrel about whether to go all out on spooky, ‘scare-the-bejesus out of the neighborhood kids’ yard decorations.
I wanted to decorate with pumpkins, colorful wreaths, cute ghosts and smiling scarecrows… my huz wanted zombies. It’s fair to say our tastes clash. In the end, my husband won out with a ghoulish getup. Turns out, we have the perfect spot for a zombie graveyard in front of the dead, or possibly dying, tree in our yard. I got some of my touches in there too though. Here’s a look at how we’re decorating for this most scary of holidays, and where to find all of our decor.
