Halloween at the Hayslip’s







Halloween is just a few short days away so I thought it would be fun to share some photos of my Halloween Home and decor. 


Next to Christmas, Halloween is my favorite Holiday. I love to pull out the decorations, watch a few scary thriller movies like the original "Halloween", and attend the fun extravagant costume parties! 


Please enter. MWWWHAAA!!! 



I've decorated the kitchen with all sorts of charming vignettes. 






An adorable piece made by Krys Kirkpatrick



Love this vintage cutie! 






I recently purchased this FABULOUS Halloween calendar from my artistic friend Kris Hurst

Kris is the QUEEN of Halloween!!!!


Pumpkin Girl made by Hop Hop Jingle Boo













  Hv18-1 copy




Another Kris Hurst design. Banner and book. 





Elegant and eery! 





FINALLY…I saved the best for last! After 5 long years I have pulled out my entire Department 56 village and went ALL out!


The last time I used every piece of my Halloween village was when I was pregnant with Grant. It's ALOT of work bringing it all out and setting up. Took me a whole Sunday to get everything out and just perfect.


The look on my children's eyes made it ALL worthwhile!!!!


I used…an old salvaged door, two saw horse tables, and black lace purchased from Hancock fabrics.







I feel like a little kid again when I sit and stare at all the little haunted pieces.










I sprinkled fake autumn leaves all over the door, and it definitely gives it a fall festive look!








Witch flying school



The BEST part of the village is when it's dark and ALL is lit up and the sounds of the houses are making their screeches and haunting sounds.


The haunted ferris wheel.






Would you like your fortune told?








Are you hungry? Maybe stop in at the Black Cat diner.




Do you dare stay the night at the Dead Inn motel…. 



See a fright fest movie at Laghosti's theatre.



Beware of the tree's when passing. 



I promise this house is safe for  trick or treating. No ghost, goblins, or ghouls to get us.




I decided to make a mini video of the Halloween Village. You can see the pieces moving in action and hear all the eerie and haunting sounds.



I hope you enjoyed the post and it put you in the Halloween spirit!

WOW!! Jenn, your Halloween decor is so amazing!! My boys would flip!! I wish I could come trick or treat at your house πŸ™‚ I bet you give the best candy too! Cant wait to see Vivi and Grant’s costumes. I have missed you so much and hope to be back visiting regularly very soon!!
Big Hugs,

Whoa ~ This is such a wonderful creation of vintage halloween spirit ~ Nicely Done I love it.

Great photos! I think trick or treating at your house would be a blast. Love the Halloween Village. There is a boutique near me that has one – they keep it up year round – very cool!
But you didn’t share what your kiddies are going to be for Halloween????

Delicious!!!!!! I wonder…do you allow your little ones to play with or just look at all the pretties?
I would be hard pressed to keep my 7 YO’s hands off of them!
Your little fam is very lucky!

Hi sweet Jenn,
It’s been a long while since I’ve had a chance to visit you. What a treat to see your village. I don’t think I would have had the patience to set it up but it is really something to behold!
I’ll have to go back in to your archives to see what lovely creations you’ve been working on. Have you proceeded with your story book writing?
Glad to see you are blooming and doing well.
Deanna πŸ˜€

I came back again, this time with Leroy. He loved everything! Each photo he was making excited sounds – then the photos of your village had him yelling out WHOA!!!! The video was the icing on the cake. He said he wants to get on a plane and come to your place, right now.LOL! Your village would keep him entertained for HOURS on end! Oh and he said “wow, she’s done a lot of effort”” (exactly his words, lol)

Awwww….I *WISH* you guys were here!!!! The kiddies had a BALL Trick or Treating tonight, and the village was a HUGE hit with the kids!!! Tell Leroy he is with us in spirit!!!! :))) XO

Your Halloween town is AMAZING! Of course it put us in the Halloween spirit O_o And other decorations are just…soo…great!

Jenn, Thank you for sharing all of your wonderful Halloween treats. I know your little ones LOVED it all. I adore what you did with the Dept 56 scene. IT IS A LOT OF WORK! I do at least 2 for Christmas. By the time you pull it all out of the boxes & set it up you are exhausted. But, you are right… when you turn down the light the MAGIC happens & it is so worth it. I have to go look at your photos again. HUGS!

Everything looks AMAZING!!! So fun and festive. Glad you had a spooktacular Halloween!!!
