Park Bound Emporium Harry Potter Tee

Platform nine and three quarters t-shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Something that I have gotten very into this year is Harry Potter. When we were in Scotland a few months ago we saw some of the places where J.K. Rowling wrote the books and we saw the street that inspired Diagon Alley.

Since then, Adam and I started reading the books together and watching each movie after we finish the book. With my Harry Potter obsession also came the desire to find some Harry Potter graphic tees. Park Bound Emporium is an Etsy shop that sells Disney shirts and Harry Potter shirts.

I loved their Disney shirts and their Harry Potter shirts. My absolute favorite is their Platform Shirt. It says 9 3/4 with a circle around it. This signifies Platform 9 and 3/4 in Harry Potter which is where they go to catch the train to Hogwarts.

I got the shirt in heather purple with black print. I love purple and don't have a lot of it in my closet, so that was why I chose purple. You have a lot of options when choosing what color you would like the shirt in and you also get to choose the color for you ink.

The Platform Shirt that I got is short sleeved. It's been so cold here in Utah that I didn't dare go outside in short sleeve shirt though, so I paired it with an old black and grey cardigan.

The shirt has a tighter fit and a more swooped neckline. They are womens sizing and I felt that it was true to size.

Their Disney Shirts are also really fun and unique. My favorites were the Arendelle Ice Co Short Sleeve Shirt and their Belle's Books Shirts. Either of these would be super fun to wear to Disneyland or Disney World.

The estimated shipping time for this company is about 2-3 weeks.

If we ever go back to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, it would be so much fun to wear this there. I would love to take pictures in it with Diagon Alley and the Knight Bus. We went to the one in Florida about 4 years ago, but that was before I loved Harry Potter. It would be much more exciting to go now!

Aurlex Tees: Christmas Graphic T-Shirt

unique graphic tees

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I'm always looking for fun graphic tees and I just found another company I love. Aurlex Tees sells their graphic t-shirts on Etsy and they have some seriously cute designs.

I loved so many of their shirts, but the one that I decided to get is the Christmas Movie Watching Shirt. I got it in heather maroon. I really liked the heather red color for Christmas, but I think that maroon looks better on me, so I went with that color. They also have this shirt in black, heather navy, dark grey heather, and heather deep teal.

I love the color I got with the white print. The font on the shirt is cursive and very swoopy. It says "This is my Christmas movie watching shirt". It also has some little stars around the lettering that makes it look magical.

I already love wearing this shirt while I watch Christmas movies! I'm sure that I'll be wearing while watching Christmas movies for many years to come.

Christmas movies t-shirt

Right now, the shirt is on sale for $19.99! Possibly the biggest bonus of this shirt is that it is crazy soft! I hate wearing shirts that are kind of rough or starchy, so I was very happy when I felt how soft this was after opening the package.

They have unisex sizing. I still went with my normal size even though it wasn't women's sizing. I love the loose fit of it.
My other favorite shirts in their shop are the Taco Shirt that says "After this we're getting tacos", the Santa Shirt that says "Dear Santa, Define Good", and the Holiday Baking Team Shirt.

The shop owner came up with the company name by combining his 2 daughters' names, Aurora and Alexis. I thought that was so sweet! They're based out of Boise, Idaho and were started 2015.

Their shirts are designed with teachers and families in mind. I'm sure that everyone can find something they love in this shop though. I know I did!

Aurlex Tees ships really fast. It takes a few days to process your order and a few more to get to you once it has shipped. I have found that this is pretty quick for a graphic tee company since a lot of them are made to order.

They're also really easy to work with. If you don't love your order, you can ship it back. You just need to contact them within 14 days and ship it back within 30. I have noticed that a lot of Etsy shops don't accept returns, so this is just one of the many things that makes Aurlex Tees a great company to order from.

Also, they have some really cute mugs, so check those out while you're in their shop.

Christmas Graphic Tee from Flop the World Pop

Christmas lights t-shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Christmas graphic tees are so fun! I got the cutest one recently from a store called Flop The World Pop.

They have tons of Christmas t-shirt designs on their website and I love so many of them. My absolute favorite though is their Let's Get Lit Unisex T-shirt. I love the design with the Christmas lights on it and the black writing. Also, I thought that was such a funny saying to pair with the Christmas lights!

I chose to get mine in grey, which is called Athletic Heather on their site. I got a size small and felt that it was true to size. They have a size chart on the product to help you figure out which size would work best for you.

Christmas shirt

I like the relaxed fit of it. It's also nice and long, so I can wear it with leggings or jeans. I love when t-shirts give you that option! Also, it's crazy soft and oh so comfortable. I can see myself wearing this shirt year-round instead of just in December haha.

I think Flop The World Pop is such a cool company. The sayings on their shirts are trendy and hip. They're very unique and have designs that I've never seen at any other shop.

fa-la-llama-shirt

My second favorite shirt on their site is their Fa La La La La La La Llama Unisex T-shirt. I've loved llamas for years, so I love that they're popular right now. Their Nutcracker Squad Unisex T-shirt is another one I love. I've loved nutcrackers my whole life and I think it's so cute to put a few together and have it say "squad".
They also have a super fun shirt that says Flossing Through the Snow and has Santa, an elf, and a reindeer doing the flossing dance.

These shirts also make great gifts. You could give them to people for Christmas, their birthday, or just to show them that you care.

Gardner village at christmas

The t-shirt that I got is $24.99 on Flop The World Pop's website. You can use code MORGAN for free shipping on your order!

I wore my shirt when we went to Christmas at the Village at Gardner Village. If you're in Utah, you should go there to look at all their fun Christmas decorations and see their lights.

Flop The World Pop is based out of Minneapolis. I think it's awesome that they print their shirts using water-based ink since it is eco-friendly. I seriously cannot recommend this company enough and I'm so excited to wear my Let's Get Lit T-shirt all December long.

Christmas Lights in Utah

synchronized christmas lights

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

We take our holidays very seriously around here and are always looking for more traditions to add to our ever-growing list. One of our favorite things to do this time of year is to look at Christmas lights. One of our favorite places to see Christmas lights in Utah is at Christmas in Color.

Christmas in utah

It's always fun to walk around and look at lights, but it's even better when you can see them from the car! Christmas in Color is perfect for this. You stay in the car and drive through to see 1.5 million lights setup and synced to music. When you get there they'll tell you what radio station to set your car to and you listen to the fun Christmas music the whole time.
You drive through it slowly enough to really take in the lights and the Christmas spirit that is there. They have lights on snowflakes, snowmen, trees, and more. Our favorite part is the big arch tunnels that you drive through. The one at the end is the best. It says "ho ho ho" in the lights and is so cool to see.

Christmas in color

The price is $25 per car, so load up the family and head out to have some Christmas fun! You can use code morganblvdincolor for 15% off your ticket between now and 12/15/18. The lights stay open till 12/31 though. It would be so much fun to get hot chocolate before going to see the lights. That way you can have your windows down and still stay warm.

Adam and I went a couple of days ago for my birthday and really enjoyed it. We sang the Christmas songs from the radio the whole time and danced in the car.

Utah blogger

We went to the location in South Jordan, Utah. They also have locations in Provo, Utah, Goodyear, Arizona, and Federal Heights, Colorado. Check their website to check the times that the location you'd like to go to is open. You can even buy your tickets online before you go. Remember to use my code for 15% off!

Taylor Swift Top from Pick and Roll

Taylor swift shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links. At no cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase.

When I can't decide on what to wear, my go-to outfit is a graphic tee and jeans. I love having a large selection of graphic tees so that I can wear different ones and choose specific ones based on my mood.

My favorite singer is hands down Taylor Swift. I have a few Taylor Swift shirts, but always believe I can add more to my closet. I found a company recently that has plenty of Taylor Swift shirts, it's called Pick and Roll. They're known for having slogans on their t-shirts.

They have a lot of  fun designs that I really like, but my favorite one in their shop is the Call It What You Want T-Shirt. I got this shirt in dark heather grey and size small. I love the contrast of the dark fabric with the white print on it. The shirt is true to size, so I am glad that I chose to get it in my usual size. The shirts on unisex, but I am a fan of a looser fit for my t-shirts.

swiftie shirt

This shirt is in reference to Taylor Swift's song "Call It What You Want" from her Reputation album. It's one of my favorite albums of hers. It is so different from her other albums, but has such a fresh sound to it.
Back in May, Adam, his sister, and I went to Taylor Swift's Reputation Stadium Tour in Denver, Colorado. We had so much fun at the show and became more obsessed than ever with Taylor and her music. You can get her Reputation album here.

The song "Call It What You Want" is one of my favorite's from her latest album, so I was excited to see that Pick and Roll had a shirt for it. Most graphic tee company's that I see with Taylor Swift shirts just have shirts for her song "Delicate", so it's fun that this company had tees for other shirts too.

Call it what you want tee

This shirt is very comfortable. I also love how underneath the main print it says #reputation and I love that it's all in the font that Taylor Swift uses for her Reputation album and tour.

This shirt is on sale right now for just $16.96! That is such a good deal for a fun graphic tee.

My other favorite graphic tees on their website are their All is Calm All is Bright Shirt, their Be Kind Shirt, and their Shake It Off Shirt. All three of these shirts are also on sale for $16.96 right now!

Unique Graphic Tees- Goldyn Eero

Unique graphic t-shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

It's no secret that I absolutely LOVE graphic tees! They're so fun to wear because they show so much personality. I love coming across graphic tee company's that are more unique than others, and Goldyn Eero perfectly fits that bill. Their company's name is pronounced like golden arrow.

They have so many shirts on their website that totally fit my style, but they one I chose to get first is their Good Vibes Only Tee. This shirt is olive green on the body and has black and white striped sleeves. In a large font it says "Good Vibes Only" in black cursive that is underlined.

This shirt is so positive and uplifting. I think we can all use the reminder of Good Vibes Only from time to time and this shirt does that for me when I wear it.
I can't even begin to describe how soft this tee is! It is so comfortable to wear and I can't get enough of it. I love the relaxed fit of it too. The material is good quality and I know that the shirt will last a long time. The printed letters on it do not feel cheap. I hate when I get a shirt and just know that the print will peal off soon.

The best way to care for their shirts is to wash them inside out on cold and air dry or tumble dry on low. I air dry mine just to make sure that it doesn't shrink or have any issues.

Golden Eero graphic tees

It's a short sleeved shirt. It's fun to wear with nothing layered over it to show off the cute sleeves, but it's pretty cold in Utah this time of year, so I wore it with my thin puffer jacket over it. I love that I can wear this shirt year round depending on how I style it. It would also be really cute with a cardigan over it. I'm excited to wear it more without a layer over it when the weather gets warmer though.

The shirt is true to size, so order your normal size and you should be good. I got a size small, which is what I get at most shops.

I think it is so fun how a lot of Goldyn Eero's shirts have a different color, print, or material for the sleeves than for the body of the shirt. I have never seen this at another graphic tee shop and I think it is so cool. It makes such a statement and really stands out.

Good vibes only shirt

Golden Eero was started in 2014 and their mission is to provide fashionable products that promote inspiration and positivity.

My other favorite t-shirt's from Goldyn Eero are their Thunderbird Women's Tee, their Portlyn Women's Tee, and their Go For It Women's Tee. The Thunderbird and Portlyn both have sleeves that are different than the bodies. The Go For It Tee does not have a different material for the sleeves, but it does have jersey stripes on the sleeves. If you ask anyone I know, they can tell you how much I love a t-shirt with jersey stripes!

The Good Vibes Only Women's Tee that I got is $34. You can take 10% off with my special code though! Use coupon code morganblvd for 10% off at checkout. Also, they offer free shipping on orders of $75 or more.

Riverdale Graphic Tee

Jughead shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Riverdale has been one of our absolute favorite shows since shortly after it came out. I have a River Vixens Baseball Tee, but I've been wanting another Riverdale shirt too. I found a graphic tee shop called Custom By Kyoko that sells them!

They have a good selection with many options. I ended up choosing the Riverdale Inspired Shirt. It has a little crown on the front, which symbolizes Jughead's beanie that looks like a crown. On the back, it says Riverdale on the back in all capital letters.

Riverdale graphic tee

There are a ton of different color options for this top. I chose to get grey with white. The shirt is a light heather grey and the crown and lettering are both white. I also think that black with white vinyl would be really cool too.

I got a size small and felt that it was true to size, so order your normal size and it should work great. Keep in mind though, that the shirt is unisex sizing, not womens sizing.
When I got the shirt in the mail I was really impressed by the packaging. It came in a really cute mailer that was covered in emojis. What's not to love about emojis?! Then when I opened the package, it was wrapped in tissue paper, tied with a  cute string, had a sticker on it, and a fun pin.

Custom by kyoko

The package also came with care tips for your t-shirt. I found this really helpful. I hate when a shirt shrinks or when the printing on it cracks or peels off.

The care tips are as follows:

  • Turn garment inside out
  • No fabric softeners
  • Machine wash cold
  • Do not iron
  • No bleach
  • Do not dry clean
  • Dry at recommended settings

Custom By Kyoko has a lot of other cool graphic tees too. I really love her Glasses and Wand T-Shirt that is Harry Potter inspired. On the front it has a print of Harry Potter's glasses, his wand, and some stars. It comes in purple and white. I think the purple looks amazing and I love the yellow vinyl with it.

They also have other Riverdale ones that I love, like a sweatshirt and a long sleeve shirt. Check them out and see which one you like best.

Something that I found really cool about Custom By Kyoko is that when you order, the owner also sends you a coupon to use for your next order.

Unique graphic tee

Follow @custombykyoko on Instagram to see more designs. There is tons of amazing artwork on this account that is really fun to scroll through.

Also, don't forget to watch the new episode of Riverdale this week! It looks like a really good one. The cast are going to be playing their parents and I can't wait to see it.

Halloween T-Shirt from The Top Tees

Halloween movie shirt

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I've been wanting a Halloween Graphic Tee for a while. I finally got one from a company with super cute and unique graphic tees. The company is called The Top Tees and they sell their shirts on Etsy.

I'm a sucker for graphic tees, but I really can't get over how fun the ones from The Top Tees are. They had so many designs I really loved, but my absolute favorite was their Halloween Shirt that has Halloween movie names printed on it.

Hocus pocus shirt

The shirt says "Hocus Pocus Halloweentown and Beetlejuice". These are 3 of my all-time favorite Halloween movies! Every year we watch Beetlejuice on October 1st, Hocus Pocus on October 31st and Halloweentown sometime during the month of October. I was so excited to find a shirt with these 3 movie titles since there are plenty of other movies they could have printed on the tee.


I chose to get mine in maroon and it comes with black writing on it. The shirt is crazy soft and so comfortable. I got a size small, which is my usual size. It is unisex sizing. I would definitely say that it's true to size and I loved the relaxed/loose fit. If you want your shirt to be tighter, then you could go down a size. Bonus- this shirt is now on sale for just $17.59!

The top tees shop

I wore my new shirt this week to the Halloween Ski Lift at Sundance. It was really fun to wear a Halloween shirt to a Halloween event! I paired it with some skinny jeans from American Eagle and my white vans. It got pretty cold though, so I did eventually have to put my jacket over the shirt. I'm excited to wear the shirt again on Halloween this year.

Halloween ski lift

The Halloween Ski Lift is a really fun October activity. Adam and I went on it 3 years ago and really enjoyed it. We weren't able to go the last 2 years, but we made sure to go this year. They're open until Halloween (closed on Sundays). Their hours on Monday through Thursday are 7-10pm and Friday and Saturday 7-11pm.

Sundance resort

Riding the ski lift is really fun, but it's also very cold. Bundle up and bring some blankets to stay warm. I also have to warn you, it's somewhat scary. I wouldn't recommend taking little kids, but it's very fun for a date night.

I also got a second graphic tee. It's the Can't Touch This Shirt with cactuses on it. This shirt is so spunky and has so much personality. I love my cactus plant, so of course this tee was great for me. I got a size small crewneck and it costs $23.99. They also have a V-neck version of this tee. It is a unisex tee.

Cactus graphic tee

It says "can't touch this" on it and has 3 different cactuses. One is multi-colored plaid, another is leopard print, and the last one is a light green with little blossoms on it. This shirt is also really soft and comfy.

My other favorite tees in their shop right now are the My Favorite Color is Christmas Lights shirt, the Come We Fly shirt, and the Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas sweatshirt in maroon.

The Top Tees are based out of Ohio and started selling on Etsy in 2017. This shop accepts exchanges if you don't love your tee or if it doesn't fit. They do not provide refunds though. If something is wrong with your order, just contact them to have it fixed.

Follow them on Instagram @thetop_tees for styling inspo and to see new designs.

I have fallen in love with this company and know that you will too if you order one of their shirts. They would be a great gift for friends and family this holiday season!

Monster's University Graphic Tee from BK Design Store

Disney graphic tee

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

Disclosure: Some of the links below are affiliate links. At no cost to you, I will earn a commission if you click through and make a purchase. 

It's no secret that I love unique graphic tees! I found another tee shop that I can't get enough of. It's called BK Design Store.

They have a huge selection of graphic tees and tank tops. They have everything from Disney tees to Halloween tees, to just funny tees. When I went through all of them it was so hard for me to choose just one.

I had 4 favorites, but ended up deciding on the Monster's University Graphic Tee. Monster's University is one of my two favorite Pixar movies (Coco is my other fave). I love the idea of sporting a shirt from one of the cutest movies.

Monster's University tee

It will also be super fun to wear this shirt to Disneyland or California Adventure next time we go! This shirt has a lot of color options. I chose to get the dark heather option because I love grey. I think it's a color that looks good on everything and goes with so many different things. I did also like it in navy though.

I got my usual size, a size small, and it fit great. I love the relaxed fit and was so happy that the shirt is true to size. The shirt is 100% cotton and it is so soft and comfortable. One of the biggest pros of this shirt is that it's only $16! Such a steal!
BK Design Store's t-shirts are made in the U.S. and are handmade. They usually ship in 1-5 days.

My other 3 favorite t-shirts from this shop are their Mickey Cactus Shirt, their Trick or Treat Yoself T-Shirt, and their The Future is Vegan Shirt. All of these ones are great prices too and come in a lot of color options.

This shop ships worldwide and is located in Detroit, Michigan. They're running a great deal right now where you can buy 3 t-shirts and get the 4th one for free!

Kuwahara pumpkin patch

I recently wore my Monster's University T-Shirt to the pumpkin patch! We went to Kuwahara's Pumpkin Patch in Draper, Utah. They had so many pumpkins! Adam and I couldn't believe how many they had. It's nice to go a little earlier in October so that the pumpkins aren't all picked over.

The pumpkin patch has these really cool walls of pumpkins that they setup. It's the perfect spot to take a picture!

Pumpkin decorations

We had so much fun taking pictures with the walls and choosing our pumpkins that we'll carve on Halloween. The weather was so nice while we were there too. I wore my new Monster's University shirt and a fleece zip-up from Old Navy and was warm enough, but not too warm.

Pumpkin patch in Draper Utah

It's so much fun getting out during October and doing all of the fall activities. I've always loved wearing a new shirt when we do activities and my Monster's University shirt was just perfect!

You can purchase Monster's University here and Monster's Inc here. They are fun movies to watch during Halloween time!

The Painted Nest: Fall Decor Signs

Happy fall sign

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I can't get enough of cute signs to decorate with for holidays and seasons. I only have a few fall decorations and have been looking for more to add to my collection this year.

I found a really fun, unique wood sign company called The Painted Nest that had the perfect piece for me. I looked through their fall sign collection and loved so many items.

I ended up choosing their framed sign that says Happy Fall Y'all. I love the wood frame on it. It gives it such a rustic vibe.

Related Content: Fall Booties From Me Too Shoes

The sign itself is white with black writing. The fonts used on it are so fun! The words 'happy' and 'fall' are in a cursive font and 'y'all' is in a different font that complements the other really well.
I setup my new sign on an end table and put some pumpkins on the sides to give it even more fall vibes. I got both of the pumpkins at Hobby Lobby about 5 years ago. They also have really cute and affordable décor there. One pumpkin is zebra print and the other is leopard print.

My other favorite item they sell is the Hey There Pumpkin sign. I think that saying is so cute! I also really like their black sign that says There's No Place Like Home.

The Painted Nest's signs would be a great gift to give to your loved ones for their birthdays, Christmas, or just because.

Lettering decals

They also have a lot of cool, vinyl decals that you can put on things. I know I'll be using a bunch of them for some upcoming crafts. I really love the Trick or Treat one and the You Grow Girl one. The trick or treat one would be fun to use for a Halloween wood sign. I'd love to put the You Grow Girl one on a planter. Sadly, I don't have any planters that this would work on right now.

The Painted Nest is owned by mother-daughter duo Kristy and Kelsey. They live in Oregon, where they hand craft their signs. They love to create wood signs that are unique and are perfect for your home.

Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love decorating for fall and leaving my decorations up from September till Thanksgiving. One of the best parts about fall is watching all the Halloween movies. I set out some of my Halloween movies with my decorations so I can be sure to watch them all!

We watch most of our Halloween movies during Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween, but we still own a few of the movies that are our favorites or that they don't play often. I believe we got all of the ones in this picture from Target and at really good prices.

On their website you can get Hocus Pocus for $15.99. I saw it for cheaper in the store though, somewhere around $10. They have Beetlejuice for $4.99, Tower of Terror for $7.99, and The Haunted Mansion for $4.99.

Hope you all have a great fall and Halloween!

Crisp Decor- Cute Ceramic Plates

Decorative plates

I received goods in exchange for this post but all opinions are completely my own.

I found some really cute ceramic plates recently from Crisp Décor. I love using plates that has some sort of design on them instead of just being one color.

The plates I got are their Creative Black and White Ceramic Plates. I got 2 of them that have a zig-zag, triangular pattern on them. You can get the whole set for just $19.98! That's such a great deal for fun plates.

Black and white plates

They're both black and white and so unique. I love how they don't just look like your average plates. They are 8 inches and perfect for serving dessert.

The plates are microwave safe and dishwasher safe. They are not oven safe though. They are made of ceramic. The plates are white and have black designs on them.

Small plates

My other favorite dinnerware set of theirs is the Hand Painted Glaze Ceramic Plate. There is a bigger one that is blue with a white design and a small white one with a black design.

Crisp Décor sells a lot of other types of products as well. They sell home décor, tableware, kitchen items, bed and bath items, lighting, and kids products.

Other items they have that I love are their Marble Base Table Lamp, their Modern Vase with Bronze Rim, and their Porcelain Bathroom Accessories Set. Everything they have is so classy and sleek.
Crisp Décor aims to sell items that are modern and timeless. The quality is really good and they have the cutest pieces in their collection.

A really big perk for me was that they have free international shipping! I know I don't like to pay shipping, so I loved this.

Vegan sugar cookies

I love to bake, but I don't always take pictures of what I bake because I don't think I have the cutest plates. That's not the case now that I have these Crisp Décor plates though!

On these plates are my absolute favorite cookies. They're vegan sugar cookies. I wrote a blog post a while ago with the recipe here. They take a while to make, but are so worth it and I loved how they looked on my new plates.

Halloween Decorations from Krumpet's Home Decor

Halloween is my absolute favorite holiday! I look forward to it all year long, so when it gets here, my husband and I go all out. We do tons of Halloween activities, watch all the non-scary Halloween movies, and decorate our place like crazy.

I just found a home décor company that I have fallen in love with. They have tons of unique Halloween decorations, which I can't get enough of. I got their Boo Wood Block Set. It's on sale right now for $17.50!

It has 3 blocks that each have a letter on them. They are black and in white writing they say BOO. I love the size of them and how classic looking they are.

Boo halloween block letters

I put my Boo block letters on the window sill in our family room. This way we can see them often and especially while watching Hocus Pocus and our other favorite Halloween movies.

I decided to put some other decorations around them to make the window sill even more fun! I painted these trick or treaters about 3 years ago with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law. From left to right they are a vampire, a witch, a ghost, and Frankenstein. I thought they look so cute with my new boo sign!

Normally, I put them on top of a long sign that says "trick or treat" on it, but it hasn't been unpacked from our last move so I couldn't find it this year.

I love to have Halloween decorations that are colorful, but I also think black and white ones are so necessary so that all your decorations tie together well.
Krumpet's Home Décor has a lot of other Halloween decorations as well. My favorite one is their Haunted Mansion sign. It's a framed black and white sign. I also really like their framed sign that says "Happy Haunting to all and to all a good fright". They also have a lot of cute decorative pillows for Halloween. I think their Trick or Treat one is adorable.

They also have decorations for other seasons and holidays, like fall, Christmas, and Valentines Day. I think that their prices are really reasonable and affordable. Some decorations can be really expensive, so I love that these ones aren't and they are still good quality products.

Krumpet Décor is a boutique style company. They have unique, trendy pieces. They have a few stores in Utah and are also online. Check out their website and treat yourself to some new Halloween decorations.

Here's a look at some of our other Halloween decorations I used this year and where to get them-

Orange and black halloween signs

I got the I Love You More Than Candy sign at TJ Maxx 2 years ago. They probably don't still have it, but they always have good Halloween decorations at a good price. The October 31 sign is one of my favorites! It's reversible and they other side says Happy Halloween. I got this at Target 2 years ago in their One Spot.

Cute witch sign

I got this hanging Witches Welcome sign just a few months ago, so I'm excited to finally use it for Halloween! I love hanging decorations on door handles, so I knew that was where I wanted to put this. I got this from Zuri Goods.

Color me mine pumpkins

Adam and I painted these Jack-o-lanterns about 3 years ago at Color Me Mine. We had so much fun painting them and now we love putting them out every year. You can even light tealight candles in them and they glow. We'll do this some nights while watching Halloween movies.

Crafty wood cutouts halloween decoration

This Trick or Treat sign was one of our first Halloween decorations after getting married. I got the supplies at Crafty Wood Cutouts and painted it and put the vinyl on.

We sure love Halloween and hope that you do too! Have fun decorating!
