In my old house, the front door was in the dining room, as it was with trailer houses from the 1960's. This presented a unique opportunity every Halloween, but was not realized until 1998. The dining room had a buffet with china cabinets above it, and a chandelier. It had "Victorian haunted house" written all over it. From 1998 to 2005, I would put dim blue lighting up, move some old looking "props" around, and use the cotton spiderwebs to maximum effect. Until I can find more pictures, these three are the best I could find.
