a little spook show

Thought you might like to see some of the decorations from this amazing Halloween party we attended in our neighborhood. The hosts are diehard Halloween junkies who transformed their house and yard into all that is weird, scary, and macabre.  Rattles, screams, creaks, billows of smoke, chain clanking and a lot of mmmmwwaahahahahahahaha’s!

Inside, an incredible spread complete with meatballs, fried shrimp, little pizzas, chili casserole and a cool treats table where you could scoop up candied popcorn, lollies, candy corn, gummy worms, and chocolate eyeballs. Popeye and Olive Oyl, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, a Jaw Breaker Machine, beautiful princesses and adorable Owlettes wearing striped neckties were in attendance. Enjoy!

  1. I guess that man with the orange teeth has been eating too much candy corn, right? Wow-these people really do it up right. Looks as if everyone had a lot of fun, sugar & howls! Love the spooky horse drawn pumpkin. Thanks, Jama.


    1. Fortunately they had good weather for the party — warm enough to be outdoors, cool enough to get into the Halloween spirit. I imagine they had to take everything down the next morning before the storm blew in. They had a lot of electronics set up for sound effects, etc., and the wind would have damaged most of the figures, etc. Too bad — I think they were hoping to leave it up at least until tomorrow nite.


  2. Wow…there’s some really scary pieces in their decorations. Those “people” coming from the ground around headstones. (shiver) Thanks for the slideshow, Jama. Happy Halloween early.


  3. Fun! Some people REALLY get into it. We have neighbors who do this kind of thing for Halloween and Christmas. We often go to their Halloween parties and get spooked. Mwahahahahaahh… 🙂


    1. These particular neighbors collect spooky stuff and add to their stash every year — I wouldn’t have room to store half of it. It’s amazing how much of an adult holiday Halloween has become — these people don’t have any kids . . . yet. 🙂
