All Hallow's Eve. . .

Hello my friends,
today, all Hallows Eve; my friend Ann took me to see a home in the Salt Lake area.
 
She had attended a Halloween party there on Saturday night and told me how every year this couple goes all out with their decorations. 
 
They pick a theme and carry it to the max.
 

This years theme was, Desolation Station.
 
He built this entire train.
 
 

A couple of skellys are willing to take you for a ride!
 
I commented how I loved that his yard was filled with leaves.  He said that he gathers them from all of his neighbors.


 
He uses construction foam and black landscaping fabric and recreates the entire front of their home.

 
 
Be careful as we walk up to the front door that you don't get lost in the smoke, or eaten by one of the giant spiders!
 
He built the wooden walkway leading up to the house.
 
 
 
 

 
He invited us to step inside.
Oh my!  I'm feeling a bit mummified!!

 
 
 
Turn to the left and you enter the Saloon.  They actually lined the walls with the black landscaping fabric.  They also remove all of their furniture and store it in the garage for the month of Oct.
 
 
 
Belly up to the bar. . .

 



 
To the right is the dining room where they entertain.  They host 3 Halloween parties each year.
 
He built this fabulous table.
 

Again the walls were draped.  These giant spiders actually move a bit up and down the wall.
 
 
They had an amazing collection of clocks.  He said that they have more, but that he covered some of them up with the landscape fabric.

 
It was fun seeing his incredible work.
 
He was featured on channel 13 news yesterday.  They also showed some of the themes that he has decorated for in previous years.  I haven't seen it yet, but am going to go on line to see if I can watch it.  I hope you enjoyed seeing this fun Halloween house!
 
Happy Haunting,
Jann

A labor of love! He must be a person who enjoys making other people happy - and gets a chance to exercise his amazing creativity in the process! A win-win for sure! He could work in Hollywood!
