Front entry prop scene... I bought cheap fresh roses from the grocery store and dried them in the oven for about an hour on a low setting. Also, I swept up dust and dirt from my patio then generously sprinkled it on everything...also sprinkled baby powder for added thickness. The spilled "wine" is fake blood. The "wine" in the bottle is a cheap mixture of water, fake blood, food coloring and strawberry syrup. The candles are cheap emergency candles that I found at the dollar store. I flicked dark red paint on them with a paintbrush...these were all over the house...some I intentionally broke the glass off the top so that it they had a jagged appearance but could still be lit.

Thank you! I think it's more authentic when you can use what you have...kind of an old school style. Plus, I do everything on a budget...I love the dollar store :)

I love this idea. I have a front porch and this just gave me an idea for it. Thanks for sparking my creative bug.

Great scene set up! Looks like at their demise they were having a good time at least. Since I don't really see food on their plates, I have to wonder if it was the food that did them in or waiting for it to be delivered! Sometimes it can seem like an eternity.

Really liking this! Might have to borrow the idea. I'll have a good spot for it in my haunt. Very nicely done!

What a great idea! Looks really cool! I would take it one step further and dress one in a formal dress and the other in a tux....The dinnerware , bottles look great but the roses really add "POP" to the scene....Love it!

When I set my dining room I actually use real beef livers. People go nuts when the touch it and realize it is real. I also put out thousand of the plastic cockroaches all over the room. Walls, floor, ceiling furniture and zombies.
