I recently found myself in Frenchtown, NJ and before I knew it I was taking stroll through the town. While being one of the more sedate Delaware river towns, Frenchtown offers sublime vistas, historic architecture and small town charm. Moreover, like its urban sister to the south--Lambertville, it is picking up steam as a Halloween town.
Pictured below is a new display. This exhibit features those very popular skeletons. I find the versatility of these guys amazing. Here the designer choose to use a rocking chair, possibly already on the porch. Also joining in the fun, man's best skeleton, skeletal dog. Notice how the designer gave these skeletons activities. The dog is chomping on a rubber chicken.
Our lesson here: allow your props to interact with each other.
Frenchtown also offers some natural inspiration for the holiday as well. Check out the historic Frenchtown cemetery.
Nothing like Edwardian monuments to put you in the holiday spirit.
