Another Halloween has come & gone. Time to move onto Thanksgiving. But before we start dreaming of turkey, I want to take one final look back at Halloween.
In my true procrastination style, I didn't decorate outdoors for Halloween until 2pm on Halloween. Lucky for me, my niece came over to help decorate and to help pass out candy to the trick or treaters.
Here is a looksy at my Halloween front porch & yard.
I just brought out a bunch of candles. Nothing is spookier than candles.
I used my dry erase pen to draw spider webs on a couple of lanterns.
Hung my bird cage.
As well as my candelabra.
I did manage to scrounge up a couple of pumpkins. Just never had time to carve them. So now they will become part of my Thanksgiving decor.
Even my fountain was gross & grungy. Perfect for Halloween.
Here we have the tomb of the unknown spook.
Brought out a couple of chairs to sit & wait for the little spooks to appear.
The pathway is lit awaiting their arrival.
Warned the public to turn back.
Now where are those little goblins? Time to get this party started.
I guess we need a queen aka my niece, to summon the trick or treaters.
The magical time has finally arrived.
If you offer candy, they will come.
The prospect of receiving treats lures them to our web.
Like a moth to the flame.
The hypnotic sights and sounds of the night have them in our power.
Trick or Treat? Lucky for you. We only give treats.
Here are a couple of videos from our Halloween night. The first is a video tour of my yard & porch. The second video is of a DVD that we show in our front window using a DVD from Hallowindow and a projector. It is always the hit of the neighborhood.
