Halloween: Ugly

I am usually a fan of sweet and nice Halloween decorations. My kids on the other hand, have outgrown the "sweet" Halloween - they want zombies and skeletons and scary things around the house. Halloween is in three days and they have been asking me do spooky and ugly this year! Well my friends, what can I say - "yes", ugly is the theme of my post today! So, here is what I came up with - it is ugly, don't you think? Well, it's as ugly as I could get! I think that if a witch were to put an arrangement together, this is what she'd come up with!!

Note: the witch was given to me a long time ago by some dear friends, isn't she cute?! Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

I used some left over autumn berries, chrysanthemums, and these interesting agapanthus pods (I definitely don't think they are ugly, but perhaps would be much better used in a different arrangement). Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com

Don't be afraid to go for a spindly, haphazard arrangement - the uglier the better. Kiana Underwood / tulipina.com
