Hello freaktastic friends and Happy Hallow’s Eve!
Welcome to my Outdoor Halloween Tour mwah ha ha!
This year’s Halloween decor is inspired by my Dead and Breakfast Inn sign:
(See how I made that HERE.)
It’s all about the dead…as in Skeletons!
They are living it up at the Inn this year!
I ended up not adding a bunch of webbing this time because pretty much as soon as I got everything out, we had hurricane warnings and everything had to be brought back inside.
Then a week later we had another hurricane trying to make it’s way through, and this past weekend, another super windy storm came our way, so the cobwebs weren’t meant to be. But I kind of like it because it is as if these skeletons are alive and enjoying life at the Dead and Breakfast Inn, in which case they wouldn’t be collecting cobwebs now would they? I’m sure they’ll make their way back next year though.
When you walk up our path, you’ll find this guy trying to get inside…
And a friend below that didn’t quite make it.
You’ll then come upon this happy couple enjoying some fresh air…
You can barely see the skeleton dinner party going on inside:
That really comes alive at night! Imagine the light going in and out real creepy-like…
See more of our Skeleton dinner party dining room HERE if you missed it! That is really my favorite thing this year!
This guy either didn’t quite make it or has had way too much to drink…
He’s one of our very first skeletons. We still have a few and they are starting to get very brittle and fragile, but they make the best props.
Here’s another reaching for you from the graveyard:
Then you’ll come to our front steps:
Where this guy is waiting to greet you:
And just beyond is one of our very first Halloween purchases when we started our love for all things Halloween:
That’s the Butler, and he says all kinds of spooky phrases.
To the right on the porch is my girl making herself fancy…
Trick or treat…
Remember this lamp turned candle holder I shared not too long ago?
It was the only one of the three that I trusted to be safe our here with the wind. See how I made it HERE if you missed it!
More porch decor…
This guy with his pet snake…
This rocking chair catches the breeze since it’s on the end so it often rocks all by itself. Pretty creepy!
Last year we set up an intimate dinner party for two behind him on our side porch, but it was hard to see from the street and we really don’t need it with our dining room inside now decorated.
Down in front of the porch is the graveyard…
It’s fun during the day, but it really comes alive at night. I only snapped a few nighttime photos…
The porch lights were swapped out for the creepy ones that seem like they have a short in them, just the same as the dining room.
You can see two of our carved pumpkins we just did on Sunday here…
Tomorrow night there will be candles everywhere and there will be spooky music playing which adds so much.
We still have several more things to finish putting up today and tomorrow like our tent we added last year that will hold my Trick or Treat sign:
See how I made that sign HERE.
It will also hold this guy among others:
We turn the tent into a tunnel of sorts that the kids have to walk through.
I have lights to hang that I was afraid the storms would damage and like I mentioned, many candles to add for the big night. It’s really difficult to capture how fun it all is in photos, but our neighbors get a kick out of it and it is a blast to do! I hope you enjoyed the tour!
If you missed our tour last year, you can take it HERE!
Have a safe and happy Halloween, my friends, and I’ll see y’all back on here on Thursday with one of my favorite projects that I wish I had kept, made from this window:
UPDATE: See what I did with this old window HERE now! 😀
Don’t Miss a Thing!
