Dead Mans Diner ~ Halloween Sun Porch ~

The Dead Man's Diner

Full of spooks and skulls
 and just a few spiders.
Welcome friends,
 to the dead mans diner.

The table is set,
and it's ready for you.
There are fingers and eyeballs,
 plenty to chew.

Hello, I am Bonnie
and I am your waiter.
Can I bring you something to drink..
some liver juice of a gator?

Our special today
Is not for the Sane..
A bottle of venom and some fresh roasted brain.

The main course is severed head
thats been rotting in the lake.
Topped with maggots and beetles,
Look out for the snake!

 Keep an eye out above,
The ghost may give you a fright.
Don't worry,  You're safe.
For now.....    he can't bite.

These are the skulls
Of those who didn't survive.
Tread softly and tip well,
and you will make it out alive.

Keep away from this ghoul,
he will follow you around.
He hovers and floats,
High off of the ground.

Our guests come from all over,
there are goblins and witches.
Their screeches and their moans,
Will make you pee in your britches!

No reservations are needed,
come in and sit down,
at the most disgusting and creepy,
diner in town.

The End!


Here it all is during the daytime.
Not so spooky!!

I had a good time decorating this year.
..And believe it or not,  I did cut down on the decorations.
Bonnie however, is an awesome new addition to the porch.

I hung the dangling hands above the day bed to create a canopy effect.

How do you like the little monster feet..   cute huh!

The dogs are unfazed by all of this silly stuff.

Well,  Maybe Sharky is a little bothered by those feet!!!

That is all from the Halloween porch.
I hope that you all enjoyed the little tour.

I will be back soon with some decorations from the rest of the house.

Have a great Thursday!!!

You are talented, Leslie. I bet the folks in the neighborhood drive by just to see it at night, and the kids must love trick or treating at your house! xo

Wow! This is so clever! You have created the perfect "dead mans diner" with all those "special" treats and effects. I did see a little Boston face peeking at the waiter!! Not as sure as the larger two dogs. Love it! Ann
