Eternal Rest Motel | Halloween Exterior Decor

Brooklyn Limestone
With October underway, it was time to get the Halloween decor out and about. This year we went with a haunted hotel concept - the Eternal Rest Motel. Something just a bit spooky without being too scary for the kids. As in years past, the decor is a mix of DIY, print design and ready made items mixed in.

This year I got extra lucky and was able to partner with the fabulous team at Lowes Home Improvement for both the DIY and the ready made elements.

This year's DIY elements included two hand painted signs, the concierge desk, the door hangers and the key rack.  A skeleton check in attendant and concierge are the perfect compliment to our weary traveling couple that was a new addition this year.  Their costumes are super fun (I know I'll use them again for other themes which is super important to me since I'm all about the reusability) and they even have a motion sensor and crack Halloween related jokes.  I know the kids will love this one.

This 'No Vacancy' sign was a stroke of major luck.  I had already decided the theme when I saw this piece and it finishes the hotel sign perfectly!  It creates an eerie green glow at night and the "no" blinks on an off occasionally adding to a the ghostly air.

There are some fun little details that you have to look closely to appreciate. It all comes together nicely and makes a festive way to kick off the most fun holiday season.
