I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
Welcome to our 2019 Halloween Home Tour here at The Ginger Home! Prepare to be… mildly creeped out lol. So I don’t do gory or super scary Halloween. My two little girls are way too sensitive for that. And let’s get real…I enjoy a certain calm and classic aesthetic that doesn’t jive well with garish decor! So I kept things subtle and cute with just a twist of creep!

By far the scariest decor this year was the giant spiders on the exterior of the house! They were crawling all over the siding and the roof! I’ve been asked so many questions about these! For all the details check out Halloween Spider Decor That’s Just the Right Amount of Creepy!
Because the spiders were kind of intense, I kept the rest of the front porch decor very simple! A few pumpkins and mums left over from fall still look pretty. I just added a black lantern and a black twig wreath on the front door!
The wreath is a simple dollar store hack from last year! And by hack I mean it literally took 30 seconds to “make” because I just hacked some stuff off to make it look simple and chic! You can see how at Luxe Halloween Decor for Less.
The front entrance got a few little touches this year including some very pretty pumpkins and the sweetest little felt garland! A couple of crows overlook the entrance and I love how they blend with the existing black metal accents! The crows were another dollar store find!
You can see the back side of the Halloween wreath through the glass on the front door! And I love the hit of orange from just one single Cinderella pumpkin that ties in with the tiny garland!
The living room stayed very neutral with lots of white pumpkins, twinkle lights and black accents. Two orange mini pumpkins draw your eye to the tiny banner strung across the art piece on the mantle. I was really into tiny garlands this year apparently!

Oh, and don’t mind Ginger Bones, she’s been making herself comfortable all over our house this year!
Next stop on this Halloween home tour…the kitchen… where more spiders have taken over! The spiders outside apparently had some babies that moved into the kitchen. Ugh. Gross. I can imagine that these little guys are just pretty stars if I squint or don’t put my glasses on.
If you are not slightly arachnophobic and want more info on all the spider decor including shopping links and install tips check out Spider Halloween Decor that’s Just the Right amount of Creepy!
And yes that’s a pumpkin on the stove! And no… I do not know how to cook a pumpkin. But that’s what Mark is for…and it sure looks cute.
Now I know you were very distracted by the parade of arachnids across my kitchen cabinets, but check out this little basket of pumpkins on the island! Such a simple centerpiece! And edible…bonus!
At the back of the house, a few more pumpkins are all that’s needed to add a touch of Halloween. Ginger Bones is enjoying a nice cup of mulled cider while she swings.
Moving into the mudroom the pumpkin fest continues! Two large, round pumpkins make pretty decor for now. We will carve them just before Halloween! The giant, lit BOO sign sitting in the window can be seen from both inside and outside!
And last, but not least… we have an October birthday in the house. Hannah turns 6 this year! So the screen room got a Halloween party makeover! We had a very short and cold summer here so to make it seem like summer was lasting just a little longer I set up the patio umbrella!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this non-scary Halloween home tour!
