Halloween Decorated Homes: New Orleans 2013

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

Trick or Treat! Trick or Treat! I'm taking YOU Trick or Treating around New Orleans today! Do you have on your comfy shoes? I thought you might want to see some of the lovely homes & mansions we have here. New Orleans is a predominantly catholic city, but we have rich traditions in spirits, voodoo and celebrating All Hallows Eve. We're also a P-A-R-T-Y city! We turn any celebration into something FUN! Last weekend we had a Halloween parade. I didn't attend, but I'll try and show it to you next year. So grab your virtual trick or treat bag and let's see if these homes have any eye balls...I mean "eye-candy" goodies for us. I'll start with the cutesy stuff...and then...well...BWAH HA HA HA...you'll see! >.<  I call it Trick or Treat with a TWIST! :)
*all pictures were taken by me*
A close up of the New Orleans Streetcars hanging on the front door of this home. 
"Who Dat" is a chant used at New Orleans Saints Football games and other places. :)
That's a witch above! I didn't have my long lens to get a close up. But it's HUGE!
Now, some scary stuff! But you haven't seen anything YET! The dark side is waiting for you! BWAH HA HA HA

 
NOW, if you're scared of MONSTERS, GHOULS, CREATURES or you're prone to NIGHTMARES!
DON'T SCROLL DOWN!!! DON"T SCROLL ANY FURTHER! LOL
Behind these pretty gates and this beautiful home...Well...You'll See! BWAH HA HA HA
 I'm Warning Ya!
Last Chance!
Gosh You've Guts!!! But So Does He! BWAH HA HA HA!!!
Here are some of his FRIENDS ;)
Here's Cutie Pie! ;)
I got everybody invitations to attend THIS mansion's Halloween party! There's just ONE little catch! 
The invitations are INSIDE the CREATURES (gulp!) MOUTH!
SO, WHO'S GOING TO GO FIRST TO RETRIEVE THEM????? :P
Here's a close-up! I think he needs some toothpaste, mouthwash and a couple of breath mints! Hee Hee
YES! I went back ANOTHER day and they surrounded his FRIGHTENING ASS with pumpkins. LOL
I think the pumpkins wimp him out! They should've added bones & blood everywhere!
If you're going to do gory, DO gory! just kidding LOL Another New Orleans Halloween adventure tomorrow!

One of my fave things to do is walk after dinner in October--to see how folks are decorating for Halloween. So...I'm loving this. Gonna send the link to my youngest son--he will adore it as well! Hugs, T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

Alicia Mackin said...

Wow! I remember when I lived in Seattle there was this wealthy area where everyone did their houses up big time and on Halloween night they actually had events in their home and special effects, fog machines zombies etc. It was a big Halloween block party. All kids trick or treating and the adults drinking wine.

Sara Gerard said...

OMG! I loved this post! I have seen a ton of those giant spiders all over the big ass houses near us. Rich people. I like that gory guy! I think my house falls into the "cute" category. If "cute" can also mean "Lazy", LOL! This was fun!

Anya Jensen said...

I've never been to New Orleans, but I've always wanted to visit - I love architecture and I've always imagined that the city has some of the most beautiful houses in the US. This post definitely proved me right! It's so fun to see them all decorated for Halloween, too - thanks for taking us on this tour, Kim :)

Hi Kim!! I'm just now getting back to visiting my friends, my head has been so into calendar illustrations I haven't stopped for air! I LOVED THIS POST! One of my favorite things is walking through new neighborhoods and you've taken me all the way to New Orleans! First, the homes and yards in this neighborhood are just stunning, stunning, stunning! The "picnic" was so cute and I can't believe the scary monster at the end! I bet kids would be afraid to go there! WOW!! Thanks so much for letting us tag along with you, sweet friend, and good to be back. Thanks so much for stopping by last week. xox ~S

Thank you for sharing these great photos Kim, I was so excited when I saw the title pop up on Facebook. I love the architecture in New Orleans and there's always this feeling to me that there's something a little haunted {in a romantic way} about the city, which is one of my favorites.

miss b said...

Kim, I absolutely loved this post! People make such an effort with their Halloween decorations and they are so creative too. So much to admire here and I especially like all the pumkins on the steps. I'm sure I would enjoy a stroll around this area at this time of year with my camera! The architecture too is so interesting and the style of houses really appeals to me. Have fun tomorrow!
