It’s FALL, people! The rest of our house is pretty simply decorated for the season (saving the big holiday decor for late November post-Thanksgiving - I have like 5 totes just for Christmas. CAN’T WAIT.) Anyways, I did a poll on Instagram asking how many people decorate their kids’ rooms for holidays, and got a 50/50 response of yes/no. I think the reason why I’ve started decorating B’s room is because she’s so easily delighted by new things, and it’s much easier to keep everything in place since her room is not a common play area. This may change over time, but for now it’s really fun to throw a little festive decor out just for her room.
I’ll link everything at the bottom of the post, but if you shop Target often you’ll recognize some Dollar Spot items. Last year, I bought all real tiny pumpkins, but thinking about having to buy them every year just seems silly. This year, I grabbed a bunch of these cloth ones from the Dollar Spot to store for seasons to come.
This “How to Make Friends with a Ghost” book is even sweeter than the Casper movies, and I love the illustrations in it. The ABC book is also a cute one - great for babies and toddlers. (Linking everything at the bottom for you!) Even if you don’t decorate your kids’ rooms, swapping out their normal books for holiday books is an easy way to be more festive for any season. B loves learning all the new words that go with each holiday! She loves to say “Punkin!” and “Goes!” (Ghost) when we go into stores that are decked out for Halloween.
Every year I’m tempted to buy a different candy bucket, but there’s something so classic about this guy. He’s just so happy, especially with a pretty flower headband from Avery & Grey (p.s. her Fall stuff is GOOD - linking here if you want to shop!)
Pom-pom garlands are my love language. I need to get another one of these for Christmas in B’s room because I love how it carries the seasonal colors around her room. I don’t think you have to completely swap out all decor to match a season - instead follow a color scheme and coordinate with the seasonal decor you DO have. The mint-colored camera and orange stuffed animal on B’s bookshelf are a great example of this!
B loves these bats from Hobby Lobby! She points to them and says “Batty” thanks to Sesame Street, and it’s the absolute CUTEST.
