Halloween decorating is something I love about October! Don’t misunderstand, I don’t do the scary decorations, I’m not terribly invested in that part of Halloween. But I do so love to put out some kid friendly, fun decorations! I changed out my little front porch this weekend, can I show you what I did?
Our porch is really small, unlike our house on Willow Creek, where we had a rocking chair front porch. The Husband and I lived on Willow Creek for so long that I knew just what that little porch needed in every season, but this porch, here on Stone House Lane…we’re just getting to know each other.
Here she is stripped down and ready for a bit of fall nesting…
Here’s how I decorated her sweet little self in early fall. In the past few weeks our little fall-porch welcomed family and friends to a couple of Sunday Suppers, a Baby Shower and granddaughter, Lucy Jean’s 3rd birthday party. But it’s time to dress her up in her kid-friendly Halloween finery 🙂
You know how I love layering in design. It works on porches too!
I decided to make a Big-Boo-Banner* and added some tall black twigs to my Ivy topiaries…
Next came 2 cornstalks and 2 bails of hay, because if ever you wonder how to decorate for fall…just start with cornstalks and bails of hay!
Next I added a few Heirloom Pumpkins, mums and a bit of whimsy in the form of a kitten* and an owl*…my tiny granddaughters will love the kittens and the owl!
From now until October 31st we’ll have a Sunday Supper, our Big Fall Party and a Before-Trick-or-Treating Party, so there will be lots of welcoming opportunities for our little porch!
In case you might like to watch a video, here’s a quickie on all the Halloween Decorating I did on the porch!
Do you do any decorating for your Trick-or-Treaters? If so, do tell… is it on the porch or in the yard???
Sending love my friends ~ xo
