Halloween is Drawing Near

  • October 22 18

Halloween is one of those fun times of year where anything can happen. You can dress up as a character for the day. There is free candy and fun decorations everywhere. Now that I’ve got my own patio, I like to join in on the decorations. This year, we’re sporting a red, super-hero pumpkin with some solar lights.

Looking at other porches, I’ve noticed a trend toward using concrete block. I’ve seen DIY benches, tea lights in core holes, and Jack-O-Lantern painted caps. They not only beautiful and modern, but sturdy and inexpensive. Making the decorations is a lot of fun too! So, if you are looking for a way to spruce up your patio this fall, consider a display made from concrete block. Then you can visit us at the corner of 15th and Illinois.
