FALL HOME TOUR PART I
Happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing the first part of my fall home tour. This is the evening tour for some of my more spooky and whimsical Halloween decorations. I love this floral infused skeleton that I added lights to really make him stand out at night. Here he is situated at my interior front door entrance.
This year I decided to decorate early for fall but transition to Halloween just a few nights before the holiday. I don’t actually have all my Halloween decorations out yet. Would you believe I still have about five boxes of Halloween decor that we plan to put out tomorrow night for Halloween!? I know, crazy, right? I don’t think my hubby is as excited about the last minute decorating as me, since we will take it all down within a day or so after the holiday. Halloween is my favorite holiday and fall is my favorite season – so of course I go all out to decorate our home.
These cinema light letter boxes are all the rage right now and I used mine (it is usually my business sign in my studio) to add a Happy Halloween message at our front door entrance. I am thinking I may change it to “BOO!” to fit the letters better though. Last year I added this fun dual skeleton bicyclist statue to our Halloween decor. I have nicknamed them Ray and Charles Eames. If you know a little design history- it’s appropriate because they were an adorable husband and wife design team that are famous for this photo-
It is also perfect in our home since my husband and I are avoid cyclists. Here is a close up-
Last year I built this farmhouse style wood box for our dining room and I transition its contents for every season- I’ve added some fall leaves and pine cones and electric candles for fall.
This close up view shows the box contents a bit better-
Keep in mind, I took these photos at night – so even with the flash and some Photoshop editing – they are looking dark, but I wanted to convey the ambiance of our home at night with everything lit up.
I made these whimsical eyeball flowers or eyeball roses last year. If you were not following the blog last year – I posted an easy tutorial on how to make them.

Come back later this week to see the second part of my fall home tour- the daytime photos.
Keep in mind, the last day to checkout for Halloween decorations if buying from my Etsy shops via Priority is this Wednesday, Oct. 26th to receive before the holiday. However I still have plenty of fall decorations to get you through Thanksgiving! Visit any of my Etsy shops and today by clicking the links below-
