Putting away Halloween this year was an epic task. Not for me, you understand, but Beloved was aching for a week after rearranging the attic to accommodate all those boxes and then lugging them into the loft. It’s also worth mentioning that he packed every single one of said boxes.
Well… leave it to me and something’s bound to get broken!
ANYhoo, the point of all this waffling is that I now have SO much Halloween stuff, I have to keep a lot of it out all year round. You may be thinking “but, Sue. We already KNOW this”, but even I was shocked how much more there is. It shouldn’t really come as a surprise, considering how jam-packed this year’s Halloween Home was.
Not that I’m complaining, mind; I love being surrounded by Halloween. But not only does it mean I have to find places for all my lovely pieces AND style everything to Suzy Standard, it also means it has to be incorporated into seasonal changes.
Incorporating Skulls into a Traditional Christmas Scheme
OK, so pumpkins and skellies don’t generally stay out all year, although Beloved’s musings about “a skeleton holding onto the Christmas Tree” did get me thinking. With the C-word looming and my festive mojo still packed away with the decorations, I decided to shelve that one, but once I got my arse in gear I did enjoy weaving Christmas into OneandSeventy’s year-round Halloween decor.
And more skulls.
It’s like Halloween met Christmas and had babies with Harald Glööckler! Luckily, Harald was already in the building. All I needed was a few additional extras to bridge the divide
Like some Jack O’Lantern bauble lights and Skullalicious Black and Gold accessories, picked up from the Halloween shelves at HomeSense.
Ta da! Halloween meets Christmas = Hallowmas!
Among my fellow Halloween obsessives, Hallowmas is already a thing. There’s even Creepmas, but I’m thinking maybe Skullmas or even Yuloween for OneandSeventy. Hmmm…
So without further ado, ready yourself for Hallowmas AKA Halloween meets Christmas 2018.
Hallowmas / Skullmas / Yuloween 2018
Yuloween Living Room
Christmas Landing Decor
Festive Sparkles in the Bedroom
Dark Drama in the Dining Room
Festive Halloween Hygge in the Kitchen
I hope you enjoyed my Halloween meets Christmas Home tour. If, you’re also a mass of contradictions, then perhaps my Yuloween décor will inspire you to step outside of your traditional comfort zone. Your home is your castle and you are at liberty to happily mix up your seasonal décor at will. If you like any of these ideas, why not pin a couple for next Christmas?
In the meantime, Merry Yuletide to you and yours. Beloved and I are looking forward to some serious sofa time in our jammies and chowing down on a Tesco Curry. Our Christmas Day is about as traditional as our décor! May the festive season be exactly what YOU want it to be.
A hui hou,
