Feeling Halloweenie

Halloween light display at Farmhouse38.com

As usual, we’ve got to keep up with the Joneses for Halloween. Our little town goes crayons for Halloween, so we always feel ‘pressured’ to assimilate. It’s the town’s fault. Fer shure.

Man, how I love those purple LED lights in the wisteria. I wish I could leave them up all year without being that person. Photos just really don’t do them justice. They are magical.

Lots and lots of lanterns help set the mood.

I love lanterns with flickering candles. I am all about the battery-operated timer candles that turn themselves off and on; their lovely amber light is the perfect complement to the purple LEDs. We also swap out the bulbs in all our permanent light fixtures to orange/amber bulbs so that they coordinate, as well.

One of my favorite, favorite things to put out are our blinking eyeball lights in the hedge. They’re called Peep’n Peepers and you can now get them on Amazon.

A few orange battery-operated lights illuminate a black wreath. Our orange front door really loves this time of year.

A tree branch, spray painted black and decked out in lights. And a couple of lurkers.

Clearly things are a little more exciting at night, but there’s plenty to see during the day, too:

Love those amazing scarab pillows from Ikea.

That orange front door just begs for a black wreath, doesn’t it? This one is available seasonally from Grandin Road. The raven doormat is from World Market (also only available when Halloween swag first hits the shelves. So…June).

But yeah…the nighttime really is the righttime.

    I think you should leave the lights in the wisteria up all year. I have a kind of branch arbor I have made over my front living room windows that I put little lights in and I keep it/them up all year. Hey! Be brave! Deviate from the norm! Share that little bit of white trash we all have in us – hahahahaha!

    P.S. And…here’s my worst Halloween joke. Know why witches won’t marry warlocks? They have “hollow weenies.” hahahahahahaha
