There always seems to be that one house in the neighborhood that stands out each Halloween. You know the one: totally decked out with hanging ghosts and spiders,  stretched out cob webs everywhere, life-sized ghouls and scarecrows, special effects strobe lights, and a plethora of pumpkins strategically placed about here and there.

Well, on today’s daily neighborhood walk, Klunkers and I spied this super skeletonized home, with a scattering of creepy black crows that had “haute haunted house” splattered all over it. Did I say a stylish haunted house? Yep. Somehow, there was something attention-to-detail special about this Halloween decor. Take a peek yourself…but don’t awaken the spirits!

What’s creepier than a murder of crows and a pair of ominous vultures standing sentry? Eww!

Skeleton yard

Less is more. Three skeletons crawling out of the ground, and a smattering of midnight black crows to keep them company just spell s-p-o-o-k-y!

Skeleton grave yard

This grave marker tells us we definitely need to tread lightly and sends a clear message to enter if we dare!

Once inside the gates, we’re invited to join the party. Reminiscent of Disney’s Haunted House, I thought this touch of wacky whimsy was just enough twisted fun to delight any trick or treater!

Have a haute and safe Halloween!
