Halloween In New Orleans 2015

Warning: Many of the Halloween decorations featured in this post are super adorable & cute, but a couple (hint: the beginning) may be frightening or even disturbing to some. So please be mindful of this and proceed with caution...IF YOU DARE!

Welcome to Halloween Week on AVSB :) Today I'll be showcasing some of the GORGEOUS homes we have here in New Orleans (Louisiana USA) and their FABULOUS Halloween decorations. Some of my older readers may remember I did this in 2013. I was out of town last year (2014), so it was SUPER FUN to do it this year. New Orleans had BEAUTIFUL weather last week. So I took a day, took in the fresh air & sunshine and snapped these pics. I love the cutesy stuff, but I know some of you like to get your FRIGHT ON >.< So this post has something for everybody. Enjoy!

Do you remember this mansion? This year the owner is doing a ZOMBIE: Infestation Site Theme

This home had a spectacular MUMMY theme! They were so tall! I thought it was gorgeous!

Did you get past all of the Zombies & Mummies?
Well here are some Skeletons, Pumpkins, Dracula and one crazy Clown waiting JUST FOR YOU!

Is Dracula doing the MONSTER MASH? :)
Looks like somebody needs a hand AND AN ARM! >.<

And some EXQUISITE mansions along the way! The bird in the second picture was REAL!

This mansion does a comical & current events skeleton Halloween theme that grows every year! 
Here are some of the new ones! Click HERE to see the ones from the past.

Now for some really cute & beautiful GHOST and PUMPKIN displays :)
Aren't they SWEET!?! To wrap things up, what's HALLOWEEN without WITCHES and GHOSTS?

Wait! Where are you ladies going? Did I miss Sephora's sale again? ;)

The witch at this gorgeous mansion, always takes my breath away! It is SO GORGEOUS!
I thought the doorway to this house was so beautiful!
Potions...Potions...Potions! Is she holding a Sssssnake!?! Eek...
Enter If You DARE! Well I Survived The Rest...So Let's Give It A Go!

Well that wasn't so bad after all! I hope you guys enjoyed these pics. New Orleans is a popular destination to visit for Halloween. Do come and visit one day! This post was labor intensive, but it was a pleasure showcasing the gorgeous homes we have in NOLA (New Orleans, Louisiana). Visit my past HALLOWEEN and SEASONAL blog posts! Wishing you a SPOOKY WEEK! Stay tuned Wednesday and Friday for some Halloween makeup giveaways!

  10. Man! New Orleans is my kind of town, Kim:) Love how all these houses get into the Halloween spirit. I wonder if they hire a company to do the decorating coz some of these stuff...that lady with her insides hanging out. Gaaaaah That's good enough for the movies! My kids would so freak out, but I love it:) And I like the one with the presidential candidates too:D

  11. I do remember this post from 2013, Kim! I was so impressed then with the way that people in New Orleans went all out with their Halloween decorations, but it seems like this year is even better. I absolutely love the house with the mummy theme; I've really never seen Halloween decorations look beautiful before, but those were both gorgeous and scary!

  12. New Orleans residents really do Halloween right! The current events skeletons are hilarious!

  27. WHOA!
    You put the warning at the beginning and mentally I was thinking "Pff, how graphic could it be?"
    Then I scrolled down and landed on the zombie woman on the lawn. HOLY CRAP!
    Man, New Orleans knows how to decorate 0_o
    Lol great post Kim!

  28. OH My! That first part was definitely creepy and bloody, yikes!! People really get into it over in New Orleans, never knew. Thanks for sharing the Halloween Louisiana style!


  29. wow! talk about going all out!!! :) the woman on the lawn one was kind of difficult to look at but the rest were kinda neat!

  30. How fun! I love Halloween decorations, so this is a real treat. NO is such a unique place! It has to be so much fun during Halloween! Love it!

  31. Oh my gosh Kim, these are so scary. I love the pink mansion and the decorations. ;-)

  32. Oh wow, I love the Halloween-enthusiasm shown by all of these people - the woman lying out on the lawn covered in blood is certainly creepy!! Halloween isn't a huge thing around where I live and so it's pretty much just pumpkins and a few decorations.. it certainly doesn't get taken outside the house and onto the lawn, though I wish it did!! ;)

  33. So impressive! And all the effort and fantasy that go into these decorations... Just wow...

  34. Haha, thanks for the WARNING, Kim! ;) How scarry cool are those house decorations, I'm totally inspired. Love that one of American Idol - so clever!

    xoxo Ira

  35. Kim, your neighboors really enjoy Halloween, this deco is awesome!

  36. Incredible, I had no idea Halloween was so massive there. The zombie lady was a little creepy, haha, I loved the "Monster Mash" part. Must be a frightful and wonderful experience to see. Thanks for sharing Kim.

  37. Some people really go crazy for Halloween! These are all great, a few a bit too bloody for my taste, but it's all in fun. Great post!

  38. always look forward to this post!! so much fun...showed mini-he these photos!

  39. Most of these decorations were adorable...but that half eaten woman lying on the lawn...I wouldn't want to see that with my own eyes, so disturbing!

  40. Love the Halloween spirit! And some of them are scary. Lol

    xo Jo

  41. Hahah wow you weren't kidding that we would fit right in! We don't have anything like this in my area apart from us and one or two other houses that go all out, I'll have to nudge them to take a vacation down there sometime :) Not to mention all of the houses are absolutely BEAUTIFUL, you live in a gorgeous neighborhood!
