My Haunted House: Halloween Decor

I decided to go a bit further than usual with the outdoor Halloween decor this year. More than just the normal punkins (as Walker calls them). Even Lucy got into the "spirit"! Doesn't she look possessed?

Mike thinks I'm possessed. I assured him that since it is October, it is OK for me to decorate for Halloween already. I tried not to go too overboard.

The corner pumpkin lots opened this weekend, so Walker and I spent about 30 minutes picking out the perfect pumpkins for the front steps. Of course, he wants to carve them all. I love the contrast of the white and orange pumpkins and really wanted more, but I stopped myself at 10.

My favorite part of the front is the happy orange light-up pumpkin I nestled into my honeysuckle vine, along with some orange flicker lights I picked up at Michael's this weekend. 

I'll call this sophisticated spooky.

  1. Love it! I've been aching to get to a pumpkin patch to pick out a few, but haven't had the time yet!

  2. I love the white pumpkins!!

  3. I LOVE all your punkin stuff!!!! You did an awesome job. :)

  4. Oooh! I love it. Your dog does look somewhat like he belongs in Salem's Lot. lol

  5. Ah, man! It's already the 9th of October. I guess I'd better bookmark this blog and go get my Halloween decorations up...I suck!

  6. Your decor totally gets me in the Halloween mood... it's hard to feel "halloweeny" when its 85 degrees out! Love the white pumpkins too!

  7. LOVE "sophisticated spooky" :) Halloween gives us all permission to go overboard... pumpkins are cheap here in NC, anyway ;)

  8. My husband & I usually put on quite the Halloween decorating show and I'm missing that this year...
    This was a real treat to see! Thanks for brightening my day with your Halloween spirit :)

  9. Looks good! Subtle and classic - not crazy at all.

    If your husband thinks this is overboard, he would want to check me into a mental institution.


I love to hear what you all think! Thanks for visiting and let me know you were here!
