Here's to an Extreme Halloween Full of Seeing Beautiful

Let's brainstorm a list of TRADITIONAL Fall or Halloween themed home decor:

  • A pumpkin
  • A jack-o-lantern
  • A leaf wreath
 If feeling a wee-bit on the FRISKY side, the list might include:
  • A spiderweb adorning your door (spiders included)
  • A tombstone
  • A witch flying into a tree
  • A skeleton
  • A hay bail 
  • A scare crow
There are a special few who sprint right past feeling frisky and one-up all decorations with  their EXTREME desire and dedication to shock, surprise, cheer others with their decorations. This post is for you, our "Extremists". This post is to get you thinking about how you might just shock, surprise, and undoubtedly cheer hundreds of people you don't know by thinking creatively when it comes to decorating for the holidays. Here's some inspiration (all located within a half mile radius of each other):

And while pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns are quite lovely, we must admit, we observed families stopping by the EXTREME decoration homes laughing with their children. Some stayed for over ten minutes simply wandering around the locale, taking in the sights (yeah, we were kind of squatting in our cars watching).

Our Pay It Forward Friday idea for you is to be extreme with your decorations. If it helps one family slow down, take their mind out of the daily grind, and laugh together, you've created a lot of seeing beautiful. If you can't be extreme in the decorating, you can Pay It Forward by gathering loved ones together and seeking decorations of the "extreme" to enjoy together.


  1. Yes, it's all about being together!

  2. Now that is some fun and frisky decorating.


Thank you for sharing your thoughts & helping others see beautiful too!
