Our Boring Halloween Mudroom!

Pin It!
If you were to ask my son what is second favorite holiday is, he'll quickly tell you it's Halloween!  He's at that age (7) where he wants things scary and spooky, not cute and childlike.

Sooooo, when I finished decorating our mudroom for Halloween (admittedly, the only room I splash a bit of spook around), needless to say, he wasn't as impressed as he has been in years past.


When I asked if he liked the new "BOO" garland, he said, "sure, it's cute, but, it's not scary ... at all."  Okay, fine.


What about the mice running here and there?!  Nope, boring.


Surely, the spider taking over our family wall and turning frames crooked with its huge web takes you "aback," right?  "Sorry, Mommy, but, no."



Yup, apparently, spiders aren't scary one little bit, especially when they're sparkly!  Who knew?  


Neither are the birds who are ready to attack.



Well, at least he approves of the candy,


especially since the eyeballs are edible!


Sounds like I've got my work cut out for me next year.  For now, our "cute and childlike" Halloween mudroom will have to do!


Thanks for stopping by our boring and "non-scary" Halloween mudroom!

Hi Becca! Only you could make "scarey" look classy. Your mudroom is adorable. If your son wants to be scared tell him he has to do laundry from now on!lol As always your home is still my favorite in blogland (even if I haven't commented in a while). Happy Halloween - Sincerely Jeannette

Cute as can be. I am impressed. I can't even keep my laundry room from looking like a total wreck.

Gosh darn, do they really have to grow up and no longer like the cute stuff? I think your mudroom is adorable! At least we have two "grands" who are still into the cuteness. One will be a butterfly princess and the other a bumblebee -- so cute! The rest are all going to be some kind of monster -- yikes!

Becca, This is so cute. My boys are grown and they still love the Halloween decorating. I love to set a spooky table for them to enjoy.

I think your décor is adorable! I know it's not exactly scary, but I prefer it to be cute rather than scary inside. Let the outside be scary for the trick or treaters instead. You have a nice mudroom.
