True confessions…I’m a bit of a scaredy cat. I don’t watch horror movies; even the trailers freak me out! Haha! So when it comes to Halloween, I lean towards spooky cute instead of, well, straight up spooky. Don’t get me wrong, I love that other people can create a terrifying space for the trick or treaters that will be talked about for years to come! I just need my front porch to be more of a fun Halloween vibe. Old Time Pottery had just the pieces I needed to put together a warm, welcoming, and only slightly scary porch!


Since we recently painted our house Black Magic, I knew I wanted to go with a black and white Halloween theme this year. I found these fantastic black and white cabana stripe pillows and a cozy patterned throw to help make the porch swing more comfortable while we hand out candy! And these beautiful basic pieces will work in my space year-round, not just for the Halloween season.


I love partnering with Old Time Pottery because they have such great pieces at great prices. This super cute spider pillow was less than $15!


A black and white Trick Or Treat throw pillow is the finishing touch for our cozy Halloween seating area.


I love layering mats by the front door to create visual interest! This small black and white throw rug is the perfect pairing to this iconic Snoopy doormat.


We watch “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” every year, so this was the perfect mat for our family!


I wanted some black lanterns to add a little classic spooky to the entry. I found this pair that came with battery operated candles! Isn’t that just perfect?


These lanterns will give just the right amount of creepy fun for our visitors on Halloween night!
