Fall Porch Decorating


I have always been one to decorate more for the fall than for Halloween.




Until my kids got older and complained it wasn't scary enough. So we added a huge spider, some webs, an ugly rat and on the night of Halloween I put out a flying bat and turn on the fog machine. They love it!



Every year, one of my neighboors carves these amazing pumpkins. Here are a few pics I thought you might like.

For more fall porch decorating, head over to Melissa's at The Inspired Room.

The pumpkins are amazing! Thanks for sharing those pictures!

We have a huge spider in front of our porch lights too!

I love your white tiered holder with the pumpkins and sign. I want one too!

So pretty, Dawn! I know what you mean about kids wanting more scary than pretty! My son insisted on spiders amongst the pretties. Nice!

Happy day, thanks for being a part of the drivebys...so fun!

I love the tiered holder too! And the pumpkins...how DO they do that?!

And I haven't really ever decorated for fall much until this year. I went more the "Autumn" route instead of Halloween so I don't have to take it down until after Thanksgiving!

Dawn,

Your porch looks awesome. That rat did scare me though! OMG!!!

I'm a bit jealous since I didn't decide to decorate for Halloween this year. I needed a break and the $$ too.
