If you’ve been reading since last year, you’ll know that Halloween on our street is a big deal. HUGE. 1000+ kids huge.
And, so, we try to make our house fit in with the theme. Last year, we had 3 skeletons that graced our house – this year, we added 2 more, so we’re up to a quintet! They just add such whimsy and personality. Next year, the hope is to add 3 more, and have them climb the turret! We’ve really gotten into the spirit of Halloween, and despite the rain forecast, we’re looking forward to having so many people on our porch on Saturday.
Victorian houses look so good at Halloween. Check out this feature on This Old House about Victorian Architecture and Halloween.
Most of the theme is the same as last year, so I won’t re-type everything. But you can check it out here!
And, here’s the scene this year! In case you were wondering, I didn’t get any better at cobwebs this year. I’m still terrible.
Here are our two newest members : the second floor skeleton, and the porch crasher.
Our trio from last year is hanging out in the same spot.
I like this guy.
I bought a bunch of mums this year, and haven’t managed to kill them, which is AMAZING. Although, dead flowers probably go with the Halloween theme nicely. I decided to use these as a nesting ground for the ravens.
Cobwebs are my nemesis.
Some vignettes on the porch!
I decided to add some of Doug’s cast iron collection to our potions table. Every good haunted house needs a cauldron!
I will have candles in these holders this weekend.
Our new second story skeleton looks great during the day….
…but even cooler at night.
During the Blue Hour….
Happy Halloween! I’d love to see what you do for your house!
