Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for so I tend to go a little over the top. This year I knew I wanted to “haunt” the back porch in preparation for a hosting an outdoor “Eat, Drink & Be Scary” happy hour. While Halloween will look a little different this year, I thought it would still be fun to host a few neighbor friends outside for a haunted happy hour.
With the help of Christmas Tree Shops andThat! I had a really “gourd” time grabbing some new Halloween decorations. My nearest location (up in Kennesaw, GA) is open, following all of the safety guidelines of course. I love that they have so many home decor options for such a great value. I think you will agree when you see the spooky finds below!
So let’s take a closer look at the “Eat, Drink & Be Scary” Haunted Halloween Porch all decked out for a happy hour. If you’ve been around here long, you know I always haunt our front porch. This is the first year the back porch is getting haunted and I love how sophisticated it turned out! The kids can’t have ALL the fun, right? I tried to stick with a black, white and orange theme to keep everything consistent. However, I wanted to go a little bit more “glam” out here since I would be hosting adult friends so I love the touches of gold on the items I found.
Eat, Drink & Be Scary || Mantel Decor
Our outdoor room has a great fireplace so I started with the mantel. When I saw the black wreath I was sold! The pair of lit trees are also the perfect addition and they run on batteries with a 4 hour timer so perfect for setting and forgetting.
The bat and mummy lanterns are solar which also makes them easy additions and the orange lights easily plug in!
Eat, Drink & Be Scary || Coffee Table
The first thing I did for the coffee table was drape a black creepy mesh cloth down. Then I added the skull – aren’t those gold details fun?
Eat, Drink & Be Scary || Wine & Serving Platters
The Eat, Drink & Be Scary platter is what got my wheels turning for the whole theme! Then I found the Trick or Treat disposable plates perfect for small snacks. And how perfect is that 19 Crimes bottle of wine? I had not realized the great selection or wine Christmas Tree Shops andThat! before. That skeleton better hand over the wine, ha!
