Halloween & Fall Decorations

Happy 1st day of October y'all! I'm so excited for Fall and Halloween this year because I have a house I can decorate. Usually I help my parents decorate for Halloween or I've had an apartment, but this year I have my very own house #blessed! I wanted to decorate for Fall and Halloween, so insert this hodgepodge of decorating post.
 I bought all of my pumpkins and mums from Strackeljahn Farms. They have a really cute store on the side of Highway 40 in Saint Jacob, IL. Their prices on pumpkins and mums are great, and they have a good selection without being too overwhelming!

My parents bought me this adorable wrought iron spider from Donna's #6 in Mississippi, where they get their pumpkins from. This spider is probably one of my favorite Halloween decorations that I own. My parents have one almost just like it, and since they bought me one to have at my own house, it makes it even more special. It's like having a little piece of home away from home. You know what I mean..
 This glow in the dark ghost came from Donna's #6 as well. I would highly recommend going there for all of your pumpkin needs if you live in Mississippi. We would be going there if we didn't live all the way in Illinois!
 You might remember this blow mold from my apartment Halloween decorations post a while back. I got it and the Halloween village below from my grandparents after they passed away. Who knew Halloween decorations could be so sentimental?
This spider web is a huge pain in the ass to work with, but it really adds a lot to the decorations.
 You might have seen a similar picture to the one above from my Bath and Body Works Sale post, but this area is another one of my favorites in my house so you get to see it again. It's currently sitting on top of my barrel in my living room. This looks so cozy at night with the candle lit. I'm currently burning Autumn.
 Now onto the kitchen. My parents made these skulls and pumpkin from molds that they poured concrete into! They are so creative. I love how perfectly imperfect they are.
 I might have a slight tea towel obsession. We honestly use every single one of these towels because you can't dry dishes with the same towel you dry your hands with or the same towel you brush the crumbs off of the counter with.
 John and I both love skulls, so we have quite a few we decorate with. Sometimes we will put battery operated lights in them to make them glow at night. This year we were kind of lazy and just left them out.
Lastly, we have the mantle! This mixed with the candle glowing on the barrel makes for the most cozy October nights.

As I'm writing this, I'm drinking pumpkin beer and thinking of what Halloween movie we are going to watch tonight. What is your favorite Halloween movie?
