We decorated the outside of our house this past weekend and man oh man was it brutal!
Florida heat and sunshine is just unrelenting! 😓
I blistered my foot and scorched my skin so bad 😔 I also had a touch of heat stroke halfway through the day. Such madness!
In the end, after two days, we finished and I think the final product is well worth it all! ☺️
There were a few major issues, for one, Gemmy really needs to consider some sort of long term warranty for inflatables. Our large animated organ inflatable is losing air because the heat down here has worn down the fabric. 😔 makes me sad because it’s beautiful and now it’s only inflating the organ and platforms, but our dancers are just falling limp after a short while. 💔
On the upside, my Dad insisted on rigging it up to at least stand under our porch. ☺️💜
Overall, our biggest wow factor are the stand up props and gravestones I made! 🎉😀🎃💜 lighting has also added major awesome points to our display! I spent the money and bought a Fire and Ice LED Spotlight in Toxic Green from Spirit Halloween, and I have to say it may be one of my favorite new things this year! Great swirling green light with flecks of orange, wide range, and stays cool to the touch! Gorgeous little thing! 💜💜🎃
So, itchy sunburn and chaos aside, I really love our display this year! And our neighbors lost it when we decorated! They love it! Their daughter sits in the front yard in the evening waiting for us to turn on our lights! 💜💜💜 So sweet! 🎃☺️

So, what do you think? Did you decorate yet? I’d love to see! ☺️💜
