Show Me Decorating Tip: Pick out a focal area to decorate seasonally, entry table, sofa table, top of the piano, island or bar in the kitchen, mantle, buffet, or dining table. Store your decorations in clear tubs, marked with the holiday! This makes it easy to pull out the Holiday decorations and fill with your everyday decor! Cute Little Monsters frame shows of the grandkids at Halloween.

Light up your favorite haunt…. we Show You How!

We like to choose areas around our houses to decorate seasonally, a chandelier is a perfect spot! There are so many ways to add the season or holiday, and for Halloween a slithering snake would be the star this year. His bright orange would surely show off against the black sparkle pine garland.

The first step is to clean your light fixture while the ladder is out! Then add the garland, and intwine on the arms of the chandelier, pulling some of the branches up and down. Then add one garland from the ceiling down the chain, winding around.

Beverly McClatchy loves Halloween. She  started decorating when her son was young, helping with school carnivals. Her love of decorating spilled into her home and she began collecting Halloween and decorating from the front porch to the half bath and every room in-between. Now her passion is sharing with her granddaughter and creating traditions and memories with her. Listen in to the podcast as Beverly discusses with the Christmas Decorating Experts how she starts weeks in advance and carries the theme throughout the house, more fun than frightening!
