A Tale of 2 Halloween Hauned Houses in the Dining Room


In this post, I will be wrapping up my little Tour of our Dining Room decorated for Halloween.....

In previous posts, I shared my "Quote the Raven Nevermore" Buffet....
 Click HERE if you missed it......

Then I shared the corner of the Dining Room where I displayed my Halloween Tree along with a few more things.......
Click HERE if you missed that post.....

And in my last post, I shared another area of the Dining Room where I have my Funeral Basket decorated for Halloween, more embellished pumpkins and a little bit of Poe!!
Click HERE if you missed that post.......

And that beings us to this area of the Dining Room......
We left off here at the buffet......
Next to the buffet is a small curio.......

There is a Home Interiors shelf above the curio.......

On the shelf is a Skeleton bride and groom.......

A Vintage style Halloween card is also displayed on the shelf along with a black glittered rose.........

On top of the curio, is a new Halloween Putz house!!!

Joe bought this one in J.C. Penney's this year.....
 It is battery operated.......
 A " Happy Hauntings "sign sits in front of it.....
To the side of the house , is a Pumpkin Man.....
Isn't he dapper?????

You can see the Halloween sheer spider web runner that I added to the white lace runner on the hutch......
I also decorated the top of the hutch which is next to the curio.....
This is my 2nd Halloween Haunted House.....
 Hanging above the hutch.......
 Is a Halloween Tussie that I made.......
 I created a little Halloween scene here.....
I bought this Tree on Clearance in Michaels's last year.....
The black ravens on each side are perched on crystal candle holders......
The pumpkin people are Yankee Candle products.....
Joe bought them a few years ago using his comp points at from the Casino that is here locally.....
This ceramic Halloween Haunted House is my oldest Halloween decoration!!
When we were first married, Joe worked with a woman who did ceramics and had this made for me as a gift for our first Halloween as a married couple......
It is 39 years old.....
The tombstones are actually candy containers that had candy in the shape of little bones inside of them and were bought at Dollar Tree!!!
Another pumpkin person.....
And another vintage style Halloween card.....
So that is the Tale of 2 Halloween Haunted Houses!!
On the vintage window that is hung between the Dining Room and Living Room on this side is hung a sign from Dollar Tree......
Along with 2 plaques bought at Big Lot's and a Halloween ornament.....
And that completes my tour of the Dining Room decorated for Halloween this year.....
  I still have a few more Halloween and Fall posts........

Next up , I will be sharing my Victorian Doll House decorated for Halloween along with a few Fall/ Halloween things in the Powder Room and downstairs hall way.......
 This week, I returned as a Hostess for our church's Harvest Tea...

In about a week or so, I will be sharing what my table and all the other Hostess tables looked like for the Tea......
   So I hope you will stop by to visit again soon......

  1. Love the new haunted house! It makes a great addition to your amazing collection of Halloween decor!

  2. Your decors are amazing but your aqua tablescape looks gorgeous!
    Hugs Alessandra

  3. I love the new haunted house that Joe picked up for you.....he has great taste! I'm looking forward to you sharing your doll house and the tea decorations! Have a great week...hugs...

  4. Oh Debbie! Your house Halloween decoration is the best! I love the battery Haunted house, the Victorian house that you transformed for the Halloween and the pumpkin men! Kisses, my friend.

  5. Wow Debbie you have gone full out with this one - I am amazed that you have so many decorations that are Halloween themed - it's certainly an impressive display!

  6. Love the big black haunted house, and all those pumpkin guys are too fun!!

  7. Seriously, I love your kinda crazy, but it takes a 'touched' one to totally relate, 'Touched' Sandi

  8. Deb, as always, very spooktacular. Love your little pumpkin men and how do you happen to still have that shelf from Home Interiors? That is going back some. I had the same one along with two candle holders that went on the wall. I haven't thought about them in a long time..Happy Days.. xxo Judy

  9. Debbie that tree! WOW. And just too cute the pink dollar house how you always jazz it up! Happy Homemaking! Found your post at the link up today always glad too find it!

  10. I think you ought to charge admission to give select tours to see your Halloween decor. I was absolutely fascinated! I love the doll house decorated for H, too. I have an unfinished dh that will eventually be a Halloween party in process, not a haunted house, but a family who loves decorating for the holiday. Even a graveyard. Yard sale toys (like Quasi Modo from Burger King; he will hold a trick or treat bag!) will look like they are in costume--got a Little Orphan Annie this week, have several kitchen witches, etc. Made towel bars from plastic doll house hands, twisted wire, and filigree bell caps to hold the "hand towels", another for a soap dish! Skellie in a wardrobe! I'm having fun which is what it is all about!

    1. Kathy,
      Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words!!I love Halloween because it is such fun to live in Make Believe, don' you think? I could not get in touch with you any other way but here. I hope you read this because I would like for you to send me your email addy so I can also respond personally.

  11. Debbie, seeing all of your fun Halloween displays makes me miss my Halloween d├ęcor! I am just getting my house back together and I won't be pulling it out this year. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  12. How fun, Debbie! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!

  13. Debbie you are all ready for Halloween. What fun it must be when you open your door to give the kids some candy and they take a peek inside your home. That is the real treat!
