***UPDATE*** There’s now a 2018 Home Tour Video on YouTube. Scroll down to the end for the link.
This is it. The Big One! The moment I get to take you on a tour of The Witch at OneandSeventy’s Halloween Home 2018. After 12 months of plotting and planning, countless lists, hours of crafting and sharing, and all the while talking the ears off anyone who will listen (soz!)… Witching Hour is finally upon us.
And it’s my best Halloween yet!
On Saturday, Beloved and I hosted our very first VIP Preview Evening, our way of thanking some amazing people who helped get us here. From friends and local business owners, whose support and encouragement has been invaluable, to representatives of Tesco’s Community Team who generously provided the sweets for this year’s little monsters.
A very special shout out is reserved for my wonderful friend Amanda who between court appearances in her day job as a solicitor, managed to find time to whip up several batches of delicious cupcakes!
Thanks so much to everyone who came; I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
Halloween Home Tour
Someone who was unable to make it was über talented, Staffordshire-based photographer, Claire Meldrum. You may remember her stunning images from last year’s Halloween Home Tour. I am beyond excited to bring you more of her wonderful work again this year and quite frankly, Claire has outdone herself. Just wait until you see her photos. OH. VERY. MY!!!
Suffice to say, I’ve saved the best for last, lest you discover how pale mine are in comparison.
There aren’t enough words to convey my thanks to Claire for donating her time and talent to present my 2018 Halloween Home in such creeptacular fashion. Not only that but she turned around her stunning work in just one night! I am absolutely blown away. If you’re in Staffordshire or Derbyshire and looking for a great photographer, Claire is your woman! Hit her up here.
So, without further ado, allow me to take you on a tour of the witch’s lair. I really did try to limit myself to my favourites but you know that was never going to work. This was always going to be a photo overload of epic proportions, so settle yourself in. I’ve grouped my lot into rooms, as you move through the house. Claire’s require no explanation.
Still craving more? Check out my Instagram stories, where I’ve also been posting spooktacular video clips from our 2018 Halloween Home.

Phew! Congratulations if you made it this far!
Now grab yourself another cuppa and check out the video. I’ve managed to make it shorter than last year, but it’s still quite lengthy, so buckle in… and ignore the awful voiceover!
I hope you enjoyed this year’s decorations as much as I enjoyed putting them together. If you’re coming to see them in person, I look forward to welcoming you. There are still some surprises in store for OneandSeventy’s Trick or Treaters 😉
For those of you who can’t make it, I hope you have a spooktacular Halloween whatever you’re doing. Here’s to the next 12 months!
A hui hou,
