Fall exterior decorations

I always decorate my front porch for fall/halloween. Last year I bought a haybail and put different size and color pumpkins on it. One year I used corn stalks and tied them to the pillars out front. Both very cute. But, I'm looking for some other ideas? Any suggestions? What do you guys do?

Well I usually decorate for Halloween..inside and out. On the outside I have two Halloween inflatables one of Mickey Mouse as a pirate the other Tigger. The Tigger I just got I think he's by a pumpkin or something. I also have various lighted pumpkins as well as a Mickey and Minnie pumpkin. I also have a lighted ghost blow mold I put out as well as pumpkin, ghost and bat lights. We also carve pumpkins and put them out too.

Along the front bushes, I put cute (not terrifying) ghosts on long poles, stuck in the ground. Then - some bats that have "BOO" in white letters on their chests -- I tie them to branches so they kind of flutter. And some very cute small witches that glitter -- I hang them on branches too. Actually, quite a few things. Last year, they were out for a month and none were stollen. It's amazing how much adults enjoy seeing Halloween decorations too.

I place Halloween lanterns along the sidewalk and about a dozen pumpkins (both carved and whole) around the front porch. I also have Halloween lights (like Christmas lights) around the porch ceiling and some scarecrows sitting on my swing.
