The month of October is one of the loveliest months to be out on porch and we go all out with the Halloween! For the last stop on my Halloween home tour, I invite you to the porch…
You’ll find Skelly and his pup Anna (you know, Elsa’s sister) out here “chilling” from the morning to the dead of night. He’s one of my best Halloween purchases ever.
I always change things around from year to year, but the only new thing out here is the paper fan bunting! You can see how I made it step by step in this video. It makes a huge impact with a low cost and just a few minutes of time. The DIY Nevermore Canvas is still hanging in there four years later!! It’s one of my fave projects ever.
I love to fill our home with fun little things for the family to do, especially during the holidays. I put out our Tower of Terror Jenga set in a black cauldron and we had a great time enjoying it the very first night the porch was decked out! A wedge of our fave cinnamon dusted toscano cheese (seasonal at Trader Joe’s – get some!!), some grapes and bubbly water made for the perfect before dinner treat.
I’ve had the Halloween pillows for ages (Target) and brought out the Ikea gingham pillows and throw that I purchased last fall. My very favorite thing is to light a fire and snuggle under the blanket on cool fall nights. Yet, we don’t seem to have any of those in the near future :-)
I love to put real pumpkins out on the table but was scared they’d rot long before the holiday in the heat so I used some faux gourds I had in my stash. Extra fans from the bunting were adhered to the chalkboard. I really LOVE the look and want to recreate something similar at Christmas.
It wouldn’t be Halloween around here without our s’mores bar. I keep the small packets of graham crackers in the bucket and marshmallows, Hersey bars and Reeses Cups in the jars.
I picked up this set of four plates at Home Good intending to hang them over the mantle. BUT, I didn’t have the right sized plate hangers and didn’t feel like a trip out so I think we’ll just use them this year and hang them next year. :-)
That wraps up our Halloween home tour!! It is a lot of work (takes me a FULL day) but the littles love it so so SOOOOO much that I can’t imagine not doing it.
