Ever since we built our barn, I thought it would be fun to have a barn party. So finally we are hosting a barn party on Halloween. A big issue is lighting. The shop lights are too bright and harsh. I needed some softer lighting up above. So we turned a hay ring into a redneck deluxe barn chandelier. It actually worked! Cant wait to get the rest of the decorations in place.

More decorations getting done. This one looks better in person, my phone cam doesn't do night shots very well. A weathered old skull that usually hangs on the shed, a $4 string of lights, viola it is Halloween decor.

Don't forget some jack-o-lanterns.
Too soon to cut them, they would shrivel by halloween. But yes there will be jack-o-lantern s.

You may already know this, but I found that soaking them in a bleach solution helps then last a bit longer. Not a whole lot, but some.

I wipe pumpkins and winter squash down well with a bleach and water solution before putting them in long term storage and it really seems to help!

Got the sign made for the photo booth. The letters are painted with glow in the dark paint.

I hope you will show us the final product. Looks like lots of fun!
Everybody needs some fun! One in my circle just had surgery, fixing to start a year of chemo and radiation. Some of the guys been working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day on harvest. Another one is all but unemployed because the restaurant she works at is only at 50%. Social unrest, the nasty politicking, you name it. Too much stress and worry in the world right now. Let's just play for one night and have fun. Eat drink and be silly.

The barn doors will be wide open with fire pit outside. Not an enclosed space. Plenty of room to spread out. I don't think we are putting anyone at risk.
