Decorating the Yard for Halloween

I started my Halloween  decorating by placing some pumpkins around the columns that are at the front of the porch.       Aren't the new colors and shapes of the pumpkins so  pretty for fall decorating?  
I thought some vintage tricycles might be fun for the little trick or treaters to ride.....
I tied big bundles of dried sunflower stalks to the columns.....
I have some creepy black gauzey material draped around the chandys....
Some bumpy pumpkins and fall flower pots add to the mood....
Enter if you dare....
Come on up to the porch.....
Ring the door bell.......
Don't be scared....the spiders seldom bite....
I hope the witch that will be handing out candy won't be toooooo scary.....
Have a safe and Happy Halloween!

  10. Penny,
    Great job!! LOVE the black cloth drapes!! And the sunflower stalks are amazing!!!


  11. Ooooohhhhh! Penny, you did an awesome job! Wow! The dried sunflower stalks look really cool! At first I thought they were something with bees all over them (perfectly and appropriately spooky for Halloween!), but when I realized they were sunflowers I got really excited. What a great idea!!!

    You found some magnificent pumpkins! The warts make some of them look like witch cheeks. I won't say which "cheeks"!!! :-) :-) :-)

    This is a terrific balance of spooky and spectacular!
