Decorate for Christmas and Halloween at the same time...

I started decorating for Fall and Halloween today and I wanted to share one of my little tips with you today.  When decorating my front porch, I always start with my Christmas garland.  It gives me a chance to fluff and secure it without it being 20 degrees and possibly even snowing.  I also add the lights, making sure they work and simply don't plug them in.

Once the holiday garland is up, I simply take my fall garlands and adhere them to the evergreen garland.  It makes it much easier to put up the fall garland and makes it all look so full.  The Autumn garland against the green brings in all the colors of Fall and I love the way it looks.

When it comes time for Christmas,  I simply remove the garlands, add my bows and in less than 10 minutes, I can easily switch over from Autumn to Christmas.

I added pumpkin lights on top of the Fall garland and we are ready for October tricks and treats!
