I thought today was the perfect day to share my spooky front porch with y’all. October is the best month. It may or may not be that it’s my birthday month or because the weather is the best or because we get to play dress up and nobody judges us this month! Actually, it’s probably all those things combined.
In the home décor blogging world, Halloween is not the trendiest holiday to decorate for, but I don’t care. I always have so much fun with it and my girls love it. This month, we will spend every Friday watching Halloween movies together and spend time at our favorite farms and pumpkin patches and back in Texas we were pretty famous for our Halloween shin digs. I’m finally planning another party again now that we have a good group of friends at our new base. To say we like this holiday is an understatement.
This year, I chose to go with a bit of a vintage theme. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to find so many good decorations to help me stick to that theme and at so many different stores. This porch is so much fun to decorate because it’s like a small living and dining area, just with better views!
Are y’all ready to get spooked?! Come on in!
All of my ‘floral’ this year is comprised of gathered sticks from around our house that I spray painted black and leaf stems from Hobby Lobby. I wanted to use as many natural elements this year. I love the way they turned out!
I love how deep orange the stems are and they even have a touch of black in them as well. The headless Jack, Trick or Treat box, and skeleton bowl are all from Homegoods. The black lantern and glass bottles are from Kirklands.
Both of the Halloween pillows are from Homegoods and the other 3 are from Target that I got a couple years ago.
The Happy Halloween banner is from Walmart. The little singing Jack’o’Lanterns are from Kirklands about 5 years ago. All the black mesh fabric hanging from the lights are from the Dollar Tree.
I can’t remember exactly where I got the Halloween lights that are hanging from the ceiling, but the battery operated ones in the potted branches are from the Dollar Tree.
This orange and black plaid tablecloth is from Homegoods as well as the paper napkins and plates. The skull drinking jars and the vintage cat candy pail is from Michaels. The cupcake liners and picks are from Hobby Lobby and the black platter is from Walmart. If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that the Hocus Pocus sign is a quick DIY project that I recently did. I already had everything I needed for it and got it done in an afternoon!
I know this is major photo overload, but I just love the way it all turned out so much! And the weather was prime and the baby was asleep so I got a lot of shots this morning!
I hope you enjoyed this year’s Halloween tour as much as I did. As always, I love to share all this with you in hopes to give you inspiration and ideas for your own homes. Let me know in the comments below if you want to know where I got anything else or if you want to know how I did anything. Happy haunting, everyone!!
