Halloween decor at the Porch


Hello everyone!

I hope you had a fabulous weekend! For sure, WE DID, busy but fun! We celebrated my husbands 40th birthday with a big bash at the Baseball park! Well one of the suites in it actually.;-)

It was truly a challenge to decorate such a huge venue, though we only had about 80 guests, the room could accommodate 200! I will share with you details on how I tried to decorate for my hubs party at another post. But overall, I was pleased and the guests left happy and my hubs, grateful and happy too!

So today, I am going to start the Halloween bonanza here in our humble home, starting with the front porch!



I went back and used my old black wreath and added my favorite black gauze fabric around our door.

Got the wreath years ago from Grandin Road
I added the wooden "Enter if your Dare" sign in the middle (from Kohls years ago too).


I had mums-galore too, thanks to my son's school fund-raising, and now that much of it is in bloom, it is just beautiful.
My 25 cent paper mache' Pumpkin man always makes our entry more kid-friendly


I got all the wooden signs & Spider lanterns from Target last year (post-Halloween clearance finds, my kind of shopping), including the one below....

I think this is perfect especially when we go out trick or treating.

And at night...





I hope you enjoyed this mini-tour! Can't wait to share with you the rest of the house!

Have a Great Week!
