With just less than three weeks until Halloween, it won't be long before you see carved pumpkins pop up on doorsteps around your neighborhood—that is, if you haven't already. But we all know there's much more to Halloween than pumpkins. It's also about finding the perfect Halloween decor to get in the spooky spirit before trick-or-treaters arrive. See our list below for some of the best shop items in Green Hills and Belle Meade.

Are you carving a pumpkin this weekend with the family? We want to see what our readers come up with this year. Send us your creations to or tag us on Facebook.
