Halloween Decorations, Take 2

Ok so this is long overdue, but I wanted to put up some more "in progress" pictures of the Halloween decorations. I'll definitely post all the final pictures of the party after the whole thing goes down, but why not show you all what I've been up to in the meantime?

As my friend Ali put it, I've been layering on the decorations each day, so it's always getting a little better.
I added more garland stuff around the living room and hung some spooky lanterns.
I added another layer to the banister, so it includes skeletons.
This decal is from Lowes. It has flowers that fold out from the wall so it's a little more dimensional.
I'm not satisfied with the bookshelves at all, but I haven't got a ton of ideas on how to improve them.
Bloody candles.
Black light with glow-in-the-dark cobwebs in the kitchen.
I cut these letters out of black poster board, based on a banner I saw online. Cute, right?
Even the bathroom is getting a little creepy ...
Of course there's still a lot more to do. I have several areas in the house where I've gathered spooky items but have yet to find their final resting places...

And the outside is just a little spooky. We put up some cute lights and a few tombstones that keep blowing across the yard (they're made of Styrofoam). 
I've also been working hard on our costumes, so I'll be sure to do a post with lots of pictures of the costumes too! Happy Halloween and wish us good luck getting everything ready in time for our Halloween party!
