Well, we’ve come to the dead end of the haunted Halloween home tour.
I saved the best for last – the porch. We love this space so much this time of year. It took quite some time for fall to arrive, but we’ve lived with doors wide open ever since it did.
In the seating area I have swapped out much of the decorative items for Halloween things collected over the years.
The plates are from Williams Sonoma (old) and I made the Nevermore canvas years ago!
Dropped Dead Fred and Anna are having a grand old time again this year. If you are just joining us, Elsa was just thrilled when Anna joined the fam.
The bat mobile was from Pottery Barn Kids years ago and used to be in our playroom. I made the Halloween bunting two years and it has held up well. The how-to video is HERE. It’s a great inexpensive way to make a big impact.
Mother made the polka dot pillow covers a few years ago and I found the print pillows at Target just as long ago. The blankets were all from Ikea. Inexpensive and great for outside!
I love to put festive wrapping paper down on the coffee table for Halloween and Christmas. I also love to keep a game out here in the fall, in addition to our regular cards, dominoes and dice games. We love Tower of Terror Jenga for Halloween fun! I’m burning my Spireside Wizard’s Pub candle that I originally got for our Harry Potter breakfast. (save 15% on Spireside Candles by using my link!)
We use the buffet table as a s’mores bar during the holidays – usually from Halloween through Christmas break. I keep the food inside when not in use. I wouldn’t trust these jars to keep critters away.
I’m using a runner fashioned from a fabric remnant outside, and filled my shell with moss and pumpkins. I also swap out the fish for a chalkboard from Halloween through Christmas. I’ve hung paper fans on it for this holiday and am not sure yet what I’ll do when Christmas comes – maybe chalk art, maybe a wreath, or maybe something else.
It’s been a real treat having y’all throughout my tour. Thanks for following along!
