A Haunted House

With October flying by and everyone in Blogsville getting excited about Halloween I thought it was about time I got my Halloween decorations out and 'Haunted' the house!
I only started doing it last year and loved it, so this year they went up a week earlier and will stay put till the end of October
I thought I would share some photos with you of my 'Haunted House'

The sofas get black throws instead of the usual duck egg blue (I love the white sofas!)

And some Pumpkin friends come out to play!

Haunted houses, black roses and gravestones! Halloween Yankee Candles and can you spot the beautiful vintage lace gloves Victoria gave me last week?

Halloweeny pretties dotted here and there, pumpkins, candles, cauldrons and broomsticks fit for a witch!

Spiders webs on the tablecloth and buckets and bowls ready for Halloween treats (I dare not put them out now or the adult visitors to the house will eat all the sweeties before any trick or treaters even knock!)

Hope you enjoyed the tour!
Remind me to post some pictures when the living room has been exorcised and is looking pretty again!

Lots of Love

Very spooky!! I used to put up pumpkin lights every year but now they're in the loft I can't be bothered to get them down for 1 week! I always go out for halloween so there doesn't seem much point. Your house looks lovely, very tidy & neat!! :) x

Wow, you go through a lot of trouble to make your house spooky, but its so worth it, it looks terrific. Love that spiderweb tablecloth.

It looks great, what i like is that it doesn't look staged... the broom looks like it's been left by an actual witch... not that i'm saying you're a witch or anything! ;o)

I love all your decorations! I dont have any halloween decorations :( I think i will have to get a couple, even just some pumpkin candles.
I love the table cloth and broomstick and everything else lol. I did spot those gloves from Victoria, I would love to see them on :)

Wow pumpkin-tastic! I must buy one on my pilgrimage to Sainsbogs later today and get carving! I like to have a lantern on the doorstep!

Blimey, Kelly; look at your pad! I LOVE it!
Decorating for Halloween is a wonderful idea. I've always been so envious of people in the States that get to make much 'more of it' than we do. Great to see england is catching on.

That's the house of a fairy, not of a witch!

Your house looks great!! What a lot of trouble you go to!!! The only thing I do is get loads of sweets and put them on a spooky plate for the 'Trick or Treaters'!!!

Hey Kelly, loving your decorations.
Looks Fab, I too have the issue of putting the candy out too early!! Gav is very partial to sweeties!
Looking forward to the secret santa.
