This Is Halloween [The 2019 Edition]

We go a little nuts for certain holidays and seasons here at GXO headquarters. While October is #WickedGoodReads Month when I’m reading books with wicked people & creatures, dangerous places & things, it’s also the month for bringing out the scares in other ways … because #Halloween! We’ve decked out or houses and yards for all the scares, and here’s a little peak.


Our dining room is at the front of the house on one side – and we got the table and our 2 bookshelves featuring some simple, easy decorations – just adding little skeletons in some of the cubicles, plus Creepy cloth and eyeballs on the dining room table.

Close-up one of the bookshelves, we see skeletons, a skull and some pumpkins.

The dining room table is super simple with this graveyard entrance sign, more creepy cloth as the table runner, and a bowl full of eyeballs … and yes – we eat here!

The dining room faces the front of the house – and there’s a bench below big windows where Mr & Mrs. Skillinski are perched – looking out on our front yard – waiting for the trick-or-treaters.

They will get moved outside on the big day … wouldn’t want them to miss out on their Halloween close-up with the kids.

Back inside – towards the back of the dining room (opposite the bookshelves) – with more #Halloween decor.

More skulls, and red & black cups full of poison (not really) that my husband randomly picked up last year.

Finally, we’re also serving skulls at our backdoor – where we enter from 99% of the time.

Do you decorate for Halloween? Outside or inside, both or neither?
