Home Tour: Halloween Edition

Home Tour: Halloween Edition

Welcome to our haunted mansion, since the release of my Fall Home Tour I have been asked about all of my Halloween decor, so here it is in all it’s glory.

So last year I went big for Halloween, so inquiring minds wanted to know what are you doing this year? I decided why not  follow up the Fall Home Tour with a Halloween edition, to showcase all of my fun Halloween ideas and stuff.

The Ghost of Halloween Past:

As I mention last year I went big,  my front porch Halloween theme was “Double, Double, Toil & Trouble”.  Complete with potions, spells books, black cats, floating witch hats that glowed, broom sticks and a of course witch crashing into the door wreath, that I made. Check out those legs, oh they were super cute, and I got them from Frontgate. These floating witch hats were all over Pinterest last year, so I just had to try them out. I must say they are really cool but if you have any wind at all, the fishing line can get tingled ruining the effect and creates a huge mess to sort out. For that reason I decided I would not be doing them ever again. LOL However if you just have to try them by all means be my guest, but say I didn’t warn you. 

THIS YEAR:

This year since I did a harvest themed front porch so I decided to go with a traditional haunted mansion theme. I just add in a few Jack o’Lanterns and the Tootsie Pop Owl and you have a Haunted Halloween porch. 

So that the Harvest decor can stay and we will just add in some creepy things for the month of Halloween to keep it simple. For example I added eyeballs to my front door basket. I have had a little bit of a obsession with eyeballs this year and creating inanimate objects that look back at you. (Que the music to: Somebody’s Watching Me) Just wait until your see the dining room table. I really like to add just a few touches around the main living space to invoke that Halloween feeling .  This sign has been with me a while. My husband in particular likes to know when I am home or not. LOLA witches portion sign behind the bar table along with a fun halloween flask sets the tone for a creepy cocktail if your dare. Brew up your own special potion or just follow the spell to mix your spirits together. A few simple wooden ghost to dress the entry way table. I really love how rustic these little guys feel. Again I have had them forever.Which is so weird it is almost as if somehow I knew I would end up in a farmhouse style home. 

In the dining room  you will find my haunted mansion themed table. Which has been converted with creepy looking glass eyes embedded into the center of black roses. You can find the rest of my haunted tablescape details at A Tale of Table 3 ways. 

I love this custom change dish, we found at a local art show. It is as if I have my very own “Thing” like in the Addams Family . My husband particularly likes it when I pair him next to the remote controls. This creepy spell book reminds me of the one from Hocus Pocus, which just happens to be one of my favorite Halloween Special. A spooky witch voice speaks to you as you open it’s cover, which is actually the candy alarm, so you know when someone….eehmm, is getting into the candy. You see this is where I stash the candy we open early, so I can alway hear when my husband gets into it. You think he would just disable the battery, lol, but no he owns it, he is a candy monger. 

These are a few of my favorite thing in this picture. The framed picture, is a  greeting card, I got from a friend years ago since it was purfect for me. It shows a cat that went on a Halloween bender and has clearly had too may treats, but looks just like my Khalessi, LOL. 

This is my Pier One Imports Halloween tree. The quality of the ornaments they sale is amazing. Check out all the details and craftsmanship in the close up pictures below.  

Those are actually sequins lining the bat…..the amount of work that went into that…..OMG

Another fun Halloween scene I set every year is the my butler Ryan, holding the cheshire cat head on his platter. It is just too cute and funny not to do. The cat head is a vintage paper mache’ candy bucket which I absolutely love. Below is a great sign, I picked up from Danielson Designs during my days of working at the Merchandise Mart in Atlanta. I always loved working with the Danielson family and repping their products to buyers. I have had it for years but the saying  never gets old. It is the perfect understated little sign for this spooky holiday. Perfect for the wicked witch of the west. 

I also love to do things that make people take a second glance, like bones in the fireplace. Creepy, yet still understated. 

This picture is by far my favorite piece of Halloween Decor. It is handmade art, called the “Tricker or Treater’s  Parade” done in black paper silhouettes. I always think this is a classy little piece of seasonal art. In my kitchen I have these sweet hand me down items, from a group of my friends that were moving. They had to down size, and bestowed several great vintage pieces to me which creates this precious halloween memory. Every time I look at them I think about my group of girls. Thank you ladies!!
Finally don’t forget to set the table, or in my case the breakfast bar with your seasonal dishes. I figure I only get to use them 30 day out of the year so they need to be out and showcased. Thanks for taking the Halloween Edition Tour. JENRON DESIGNS wishes you a safe and happy Halloween!!!
