Boo, y’all!! Things are getting pretty spooky around here, and we came home to find it feeling a little bit like fall. Finally (even if it is only in the early morning before the sun wakes up)!!
I’m kicking off the Haunted Halloween tour with the exterior and foyer today. I’ve got the whole house pretty much done, but it will take some time to take pictures of it all.
I’ve got my BOO Bronwyn Hanahan door hanger up, the little mesh ghost picks (Michael’s) in my ferns and my jack-o-lanterns (Target) out.
I keep my jack-o-lanterns on a timer so that they come on from around 5-10PM each night.
I instructed her to “sit” very firmly and in my most authoritative voice and she did this. Seriously, who is the boss around here?!
I picked up this cute Trick or Treat / Out of Candy sign at Target and added the ribbons. I love this new addition!!
I use my candy corn door hanger, also by Bronwyn, on the friend’s entry.
And, I have more jack-o-lanterns out on the porch steps.
Now, y’all come inside…. if you dare. bwahahahahaha
The foyer is one of my favorite rooms to decorate for a holiday – it’s small and a little effort makes a big impact! I focused on black and white this year, layering crows on the foyer table, rats scurrying up the stairs, and bats fluttering across the mirror. Leaves from the yard and antique books add the perfect spooky touch.
Best of all, I didn’t buy one new thing outside of the little trick or treat sign for the outside or foyer this year!!
I can’t wait to share the rest of the house over the next week or two. Stay tuned for more spooky things to come your way.
