Where this year went I have no idea, but here we are about to have little ghosts and goblins taking to the streets and visiting our front porch for a trick or treat! I personally like to provide both!! This is the beginning of the decorating season that will last for the next 2 months. I love Halloween! I love that it’s the one time of year that I can be macabre.
This year we went with a very spooky graveyard scene with headstones, witches and a fog breathing goblin. Instead of spending big bucks at the Halloween pop up stores we went for the home made version. It turns out life size tombstones are scarier as well as more comical then the stock ones you can buy. With a few Lowe’s purchases and some creativity we out did ourselves
Fred, the master of ceremonies waits on the front porch to greet kids with candy and beads if they feel brave enough to creep across the grave yard. We will leave the younger kids alone, but the older ones will get a few extra scares from wondering zombies and Gilly monsters.
Many neighborhoods across the Low Country have been designed for this kind of community sharing. The houses are closer together. The front porches are wide and open. Welcoming sidewalks leading up to the front door encourage neighbors to get together. If you have a great Halloween decoration idea or a great Halloween picture please post a picture in the comments. If you are looking for the perfect community neighborhood and home please contact me: Wendy Roper, firstname.lastname@example.org, 843-972-3271!
Have a fun and safe Halloween!!
