OUR BEST HALLOWEEN....GO BIG OR GO HOME...pic heavy..enter now

GOOD MORNING...I titled this post go big or go home because we went big this year!!!  We have gone big other years but this was the best freakin party we have had to date.  All of this which you are about to view  is only a fraction of what we have done.  This month, yes the entire month of decorating was worth every minute of the screams that came from our haunted walk through.   It was incredible to say the least and our guests were frightened, even the ones that claim not to "scare easily"...ok?  I heard someone say that they peed a little....hysterical!!!  These photo are NOT the haunted walk through...they are our house inside, upstairs and in the basement where we danced and partied the night away...hope your Halloween was frighteningly good!

My cabinet of curiosity/apothecary







my haunted ancestors....boo!




this was in the dance area and the dj was to the right...


breakfast nook area

breakfast table...yummy body parts...

front window...don't mind the cat crunchies,  they lounge up there...


the salon...just kidding, this is in the living room.

vintage painting...thrifted

kitchen window...my take on amityville horror...



I made this shadow box which is huge, 3 or 4 years ago.  I used some of my little antique items in it.  my fav.


Living room mirror...


living room table vignette...


basement den area/dance area.  I took these the day after because I was so exhausted.  I love seeing how many people leave parts of their costumes at my home.  See the lampshade on the couch?

I decorated that child's shoe in a spooky fashion...this is the living room area...

wicked seating area in basement in dance area...

messy bar and a wonderful husband who helped me clean everything up....except for a little spinach dip on the rug and some red wine on the wall, everything was perfect.  Thanks for viewing my Halloween post.  I wish you all a wonderful Monday and Happy Halloween to you and your little costume donning kiddos.  Linking up to Tammy at Silverstyle

Incredible decorations! I love the attention to detail! The cobwebs alone would've driven me crazy. I was ready to call it quits with those things, and I only used them in two locations. They really add to the total effect, though.

Kat said...

WOW.

Absolutely amazing! This should be featured in a magazine. It is just so spot on for Halloween! Do you do this for other holidays too?

My God! How long will it take you to put all of the stuff away. I bet you are one tired chick.
Thanks for linking up. I think I missed the picture of your costume?
I am trying to decide for this weeks Trending link. Any ideas?
It's starting to get a little cooler so maybe the decision will be a little easier.
I had a blast at the party then went to some neighbors house Sunday evening for another party. I am pooped out. Probably calling it a night

Alice /// VESTIGIAL WINGS said...

Kara said...

GIRL! This is beyond! I just wish I could see more of it! Where do you do the haunted walk-through? I'm pretty sure I could not handle it since I actually "scare-easily"!
This really is creativity taken to a whole other level. So glad you had an awesome time!
