fall decorating ideas from a kailo chic life

Fall is when everyone tends to embrace orange and browns, even if they aren’t normally used to decorate with the rest of the year. I always find it a challenge to come up with fall decorating ideas, because I love bright colors and fall is usually all about muted tones of yellow, brown, orange, and cream.

This year I found how I can perfectly align fall sensibilities with my bright color palette on a Treetopia Basics Orange Christmas tree. Never fear, however, if this bright look isn’t for you. I am going to give you tips on how to tailor the look to suit your idea of the perfect fall colors.

I am so excited to share a few of my favorite trees decorated for all the holidays in the next few months. But first, let’s talk all things Halloween! While I love the traditional orange and black of Halloween decorations, the last few years I have started to incorporate more colors into my Halloween decorations.

Horror films and villains by state

Horror movies have been chilling our spines since the first, Le Manoir du Diable, was produced in 1890. The silver screen has spawned many iconic villains since then, each one raising hairs on the back of our necks.

We at the Treetopia blog are such big fans of Halloween, which is right around the corner! This got us thinking about all the horror movies that are set in each state, and which are the most popular.

Teal Pumpkin Wreath Hero Banner

Let’s talk teal pumpkins. Unless you have been living under a Halloween rock, you have probably seen teal pumpkins at the store. Most stores that carry pumpkins have them. Do you know what they are for? Teal pumpkins let kids with food allergies and their parents know that this house has something safe for them. This practice all started with the Teal Pumpkin Project by F.A.R.E. It is a great movement and something near and dear to my heart as the mom of a kid with severe food allergies. Every year not only do I have a teal pumpkin on my doorstep with plenty of safe treats I also go that extra teal pumpkin decorating mile – because of course, I do.
