Orange Heat For Halloween

Halloween is in full force in the dining room.
Orange has turned up it's heat here. 
In the living room all is white but not here.
 The copper cauldron is from last year but everything else we found this summer and fall.
We bought the Hemingway Hurricanes by Southern Living at Home at a garage sale Saturday. 
They were new in the box for ten dollars each.
I was happy to pay that price as I know how expensive they originally were. 
I really should sell them but I am keeping them.

Could these candles be any cuter?
I do not think so.

The polka dot creatures are called Kiddo Jack and Kiddo Kat and came from the Tuesday Morning store. I like them a lot because I almost never buy holiday decor from non-thrift stores.
Everything else including the copper cauldron is from second hand stores or garage sales.

This is how the table looked before we found the glass hurricanes.

This is the other side of the cauldron and our pumpkin filled cloches.

Do you decorate with orange for fall and/or Halloween?
