Today is one of my very favorite spaces to share on the Halloween Home Tour – the porch!
October must be the most glorious month of the year to have a porch in the South. It’s just downright lovely so spend time out here no matter the time of day! For that very reason, I put a lot of love and thought into making the space super spooky for my little monsters.
The Nevermore canvas has survived another year in storage, and our friend Skelly is back again too! We sure have missed his silly little self for the last eleven months. Rumor has it that he has a friend arriving soon. Shhhh…. don’t tell the boys!
I covered the map on the coffee table with kraft wrapping paper to keep things cohesive. My normal decor was swapped out for things like skeletons and skulls, pillows were slipped into their Halloween covers and I added blankets to the chairs for our weekly fireside s’mores!
I added new fall pillow covers and a darling plaid throw that will transition straight through to Christmas this year.
Our s’mores bar is in full swing again, much to everyone’s delight! We love to do reese’s cups and marshmallows on ritz crackers, along with the traditional hershey bar variety. In case you’re wondering, I bring this stuff in to the kitchen counter when not in use.
I kind of tuckered out on the table out here, throwing a few fresh mini pumpkins and crows in a tray and calling it a day.
After riding the Haunted Mansion ad nauseum in Disney, we were all chanting Madame Leota’s lines non stop. I knew I had to put it on our chalkboard this year! See how I create them here.
Last but not least, the porch entry got a tulle wreath (DIY) and a few jack o lanterns!
