I have been so preoccupied with the kitchen remodel that I didn’t get to create much for Halloween this year, which is sad since it’s my favorite holiday. In fact, after going back and forth a dozen times I even decided NOT to host my annual All Hallow’s Eve dinner party. I was so disappointed and relieved at the same time. Sometimes you just have to give yourself a break, right?!
I had an idea floating around in my head for this simple Halloween banner. I really wanted it for my own mantle so I designed it a couple weeks ago. I wasn’t sure if I’d have time to properly photograph it so I wasn’t planning to post it. However, I’ve had a few friends request a copy, and as long as you can excuse my iphone photos for this post, I will share the free printable file for my Halloween banner. It’s better late than never, right?
If you’ve already decorated your mantle this year, just pin this for next year. Or if you’re running behind this year, like I am, then here’s a quick and easy banner to make things festive at your house!
We shared this We Heart Daddy banner before, and now our kids wanted a Mom version.
Of course this banner is perfect for Mother’s Day, but we have an inkling they might be planning to make it to welcome us home from SNAP conference. We had actually created the Dad banner not for Father’s Day but to welcome Dad home from a trip — we always miss Dad when he’s away. Come to think of it, we actually now have a Welcome Home banner too — clearly we love banners! The great thing about banners are that you get a big bang with just a few pieces of paper.
For those who have started thinking green for St. Patrick’s Day, I just wanted to remind you about this cute SO LUCKY banner we shared last year. It was fun to see the way some of our favorite blogging pals styled it in their homes.
Over on Instagram we’ve been discussing how quickly everyone switches out their decor after each holiday. I was shocked when I showed up for Sunday dinner at my mom’s house yesterday and her St. Patrick’s Day decor was all up. She really is Supermom.
