I’ll never be that person who has blow-up ghosts and witches on their front lawn for Halloween.

I usually go for a more subtle decorating style during the holidays. Besides the lone jack-o-lantern, I stick with real pumpkins, squash, pinecones, candles and a string of lights. Bam. Simple.

I set up a small space on my front porch and my crazy family is excited because mom actually decorated for Halloween (wooo!). I’m just enjoying the pop of color it brings.

A bunch of candles lit at night just make me feel some type of way, so I always pile on the candles. Of course, they are all the LED battery-powered tealights because they “burn” for a long time and they are completely safe, which I totally appreciate. How many times have I almost burned down the place because of my fancy candles? Too many times to count.

Fill bowls with natural things like pinecones, acorns, dried berries and display them, too.

I love all the colors and weird shapes. Bumpy gourds need love, too.
