Happy Halloween! We are finishing up the Halloween tour of the house here today starting with the front porch. Please ignore my mums that sadly need watering. After all the unending rain of the summer, we have had a VERY dry fall. Our sprinklers have been going and going and going lately. My mums outside have been thirsty plants, but they are calling for a very rainy first day of November, so that should help.
I didn’t change much in my front porch decorating from last year except for moving the basket of mums from the side door to the front door. All the plants and pumpkins were enough for the side entrance without needing the door basket.
Here is a larger view of the house ready for trick-or-treaters.
We didn’t get a chance to see the playroom when we were touring inside the other day, so take a look around now.
A few of the trick or treat bags are in the bowl in there.
This little chalkboard is at the other door to the room.
Now let’s go out on the back porch for awhile. It has been in the eighties here the last few days…doesn’t feel like fall at all. The pumpkin bowls and tureen that my husband picked up for me last year at the Pottery Barn outlet are on the porch table this year.
Pumpkins pumpkins everywhere.
The table is set for a dinner that I had planned for Halloween night, but it is going to have to wait until the weekend. It is too warm for the soup that is planned for this meal, but the weekend promises to be perfect for it. Sunny with highs in the 60′s.I hope to have the menu, photos, and recipes for you next week. We’ll just call it a Fall Lunch instead of a Halloween Dinner.
You can’t really tell it, but I switched out a couple of pillows for orange ones.
Pumpkins and mums again.
And that is the end of our Halloween House tour for this year. You all have been leaving me the sweetest comments on the posts, and I so appreciate it. You may have noticed that I have not been replying to comments on the last few. I need to let you know that I am still sick with some respiratory problems….and yes, I have been back to the doctor again, and missed a couple of days of work again. I have new medicines (4!) that I hope will do the trick. My work on the blog has been to get these posts done in time for Halloween (kind of bad to share Halloween decor in November, right?) So please forgive my silence in the comment department. Hopefully, my energy will be back to normal soon.
Okay, that’s enough of the yucky stuff. Thank you for reading all my ramblings. Here’s to a candy and treat filled Halloween!
I hope you get all your favorites!
