halloween ready // our front porch decor

Being a homeowner for the first time has brought on many new experiences. Figuring out how to decorate spaces I’ve never had before (like a study!), learning just how much mowing a Florida lawn truly requires (it’s a lot), battling roach invasions… the list goes on!

One new homeowner experience I am so excited for, however, is having trick-or-treaters this Halloween! Having lived in an apartment for most of my 20s, this will be the first time I get to hand out candy to our neighborhood ghouls and goblins, Needless to say, I simply can’t wait!

There are still quite a few updates I’d love to make to our front porch area (replacing our red door with a pale blue style, adding a hanging swing, bringing in some lovely planters, etc), but while Andrew and I save up for those changes, I’m temporarily transforming the front of our house with a few budget-friendly items from Walmart!

Today, I’m excited to be partnering with Walmart to share how I’m prepping for Halloween this week. Walmart has been my favorite budget-friendly destination for Halloween candy and all things festive and fall, and I can’t wait to bring you into all of the fun!

SWEATER (just $12) // CAT EARS // JEANS (under $15) // SHOES // EYELINER // HALLOWEEN CANDY // DOOR MAT // LANTERN // WREATH // PUMPKINS (purchased in-store) // MUMS (purchased in-store) // HAY BALE

On a recent Walmart run, I lucked into the cutest selection of all things fall and Halloween! Before I knew it, my cart was stuffed with hay bales, mums, white pumpkins, and cat ears galore. Everything I needed to spruce up our front porch in time for Thursday! I even found these budget-friendly string lights that I wove into the mums and our wreath. Adds such a fun touch of sparkle!

What I was especially impressed with, however, was the Halloween candy aisle. Yes, y’all, AISLE. I’m talking an entire selection of every sweet treat you can think of. I picked up a few bags of these All Time Greats bags so that all of my bases were covered. At the rate Andrew and I have been snacking on them, we’ll see if any are left by the end of the week!

There are bags as large or as small as you’re looking for, filled with all different assortments of your favorite childhood candy. If Halloween treats are still on your list, you’ll find an amazing selection (all at amazing prices) at Walmart. And don’t forget, with free NextDay and 2 day shipping available on most purchases, you’ve still got time to prepare without even having to leave the house!

Wishing everyone a fun and spooky week ahead. If you’re dressing up, let me know who you’re going to be!

Love from the Sunshine State,


Thank you, Walmart, for sponsoring this post.
