So I've been looking at Pinterest for months in excitement.  I came up with a million and one ways that I wanted to decorate the outside of our house for Halloween.  I had grand dreams of skeletons, spider webs, pumpkins that looked like they were eating a man's leg... you know.

So I went outside one Thursday evening with all my supplies and realized that it was harder than I thought.  Most of my ideas required a ladder.  I don't go on ladders.  Ever.  I did put out some spider web {which I will probably regret when I have to pull it out of the bushes}, a strand of orange lantern lights, and I planted some mums.

Yes, there is one random skeleton lounging in the bush.
 Please ignore the fact that I have a forest of weeds growing between my bushes... oh, and also apparently poison ivy as now I have a rip roaring case all down my legs.  Needless to say, I've given up on Halloween perfection and am quite happy with the result even though it isn't Martha Stewart picture perfect.

After all, this is just a practice run on outdoor decor.  The real deal comes at Christmastime right?

Do you do any decorating outside for Fall/Halloween?

  1. Hey Lady - I emailed you my address and I need yours for the Fall Favorites Swap! - Victoria

  2. Aww I love your decor! I don't do ladders either! I didn't do much outside decor because 1. I live in an apartment and 2. last year we put pumpkins outside our door and some punk kids smashed them :( But I did make a fall wreath this year!

    1. Thanks for the compliment!

      Yes, I am quite familiar with kids smashing pumpkins. We just moved into a house this year and we have had that same problem many a times!

  3. Your house is lovely. I like the decorations.
