Decorating for Halloween

Welcome to the 92nd Metamorphosis Monday!

Recently, I mentioned on Facebook that I’d love to see your fall and Halloween decor. Three BNOTP readers sent some fun pics showing the metamorphosis of their homes for the season.

Pinky shared her front porch all falled up.

Perfect for fall!

Marian who lives in Lousiana knows just how to scary things up a bit for Halloween. Those Trick-or-Treaters have to be serious about candy to brave passing under this guy! πŸ™‚

    Hi Susan,

    Thanks for hosting us and for all of the fun Fall porches.

  28. MM gives me something to look forward to on Mondays, a day that takes a little extra to get me started. All the bloggers are talented and generous to provide beautiful photos with ideas of how to morph an item or pretty it up.

    RE candle contest, I think Cafe Au Lait is a great flavor, full bodied without be sweet.


  29. Handy Man, Crafty Woman says

    Thanks for hosting this great blog party! I have "porch envy", I don't have a porch to decorate, I SO wish I did!

  30. The fall Porches are soo inspiring…if only I had a front porch! πŸ˜‰
    Thank you for hosting such an inspiring gathering each week!
    Happy Fall!

  31. Oh my, my house is on BNOTP! I'm so flattered. Pinky's porch is wonderfully welcoming and I do love Bonnie's bat flight. I used to spend all my time doing the interior for the season but now I do almost as much to the outside. I wish I could have shown you my fog spewing, bubbling cauldron. Susan, I'm so glad I found your blog and it's nice to share my home since I don't have my own blog. Happy Halloween to everybody.

  32. Megan {Honey We're Home} says

    I love the fall porch inspiration!

  33. Hello, Susan! Thanks for hosting. This is my first party here. I'm looking forward to an evening of inspiration when I return home from work. So many good posts already. Take care.

    Such beautiful homes all decked out. I really love that second house and the spider web.

  37. Cass @ That Old House says

    Oh I love that giant spider on the lovely brick house. If we got more than 2 trick or treaters, I'd do the same sort of thing. I love Halloween!

    Lovely decor… and I can't understand how you have way over 200 participants in MM mine is only the 37th comment, and I'm LATE with it!

    What's with people? At least comment on the hostess' post!

    Thanks for hosting Susan! Oh — I'm watching Antiques Roadshow right now and the most gorgeous tea set is being shown .. Crown Derby. Swoon time.

    Happy MM!

    -clapping hands- Oh how delightful! Especially for a non-crafty person like me. Seeing all the fabulous decorations, which others can think up.

    Gentle hugs…

  39. Pattie @ Olla Podrida says

    What absolute FUN! I love Halloween deorating — such a wonderful time of the year. I've gotten a lot of ideahere, and a reminder (from the lovely pillow) that I have a pillow pattern lurking in a shopping bag somewhere that needs to be put into service NOW!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
