Front Porch Decorating

There’s this tree at the end of our street that looks like it was just made for Halloween…

…which is pretty cool, because apparently Halloween is a pretty big deal around here. I’ve never really done a whole lot of exterior Fall decorating, but man has this place got me in the spirit! So many pretty porches…

…and fun Halloween decorations…

The folks that live behind us are in charge of decking out the neighborhood for the Fall Festival they’re hosting here this weekend. Among others things, there’s going to be a scary hay ride for big kids, and a non-scary hay ride for little ones. Based on the “decorations” I can see from my bedroom window, I think I’ll be joining the little ones.

    The black cat was so fitting! The neighborhood looks like a blast to live in.. I also like to keep my outdoor decorating simple. It was pretty exciting to find burlap garland, and then I added some natural elements. Including a pumpkin in one of my terra cotta pots with stickers that say, ‘Bless This House’ placed on the pumpkin (saw that idea on the internet) with a ribbon on top. Less is more.. the homes in the photos displayed prove that, they all look lovely.

    Hey Layla, you guys are so blessed to find such a great neighbourhood. Even though they are newer houses they are so cute and have character, which is rare thing in a newer neighbourhood. Just one question….. do you have any idea what type of tree that is and is that moss hanging down? We do not have anything like that where I live here in Burlington, Ontario, Canada (just outside of Toronto). Such an amazing sight and you are so right about it being perfect for Halloween. Thanks as always for sharing.

    im head over heels in love with your neighborhood, layla!

    i guess maybe we both have to step our game up?! i was proud i got pumpkins out there. granted, our exterior isn’t nearly as cute [it has a long way to go] so sometimes i dont bother : x

    seriously thinking of moving to alabama… cant wait to see some christmas porches :)
