If there's one thing we know about Kelly Ripa, 53, it's that she loves a holiday (especially Halloween). In the past, the Live with Kelly and Mark co-host has taken it to the next level with her Halloween costumes, and it seems she brings that same level of commitment to her home décor as well.

In a new video that Ripa's husband, Mark Consuelos, 52, posted to Instagram, we got a glimpse of the Live Wire author's impressive outdoor decorations, as well as a surprise that awaited Consuelos outside their door.

“@kellyripa really went all out this year,” Consuelos wrote in his caption. “Thank you @iwo_karolina.duo for elevating the neighborhood.”

In the clip, we can see that Ripa gathered quite the impressive collection of pumpkins for their front porch, and she also put out black skeletons, a fake cauldron and so much more.

Turns out, the violin and accordion duo, Karolina Mikołajczyk & Iwo Jedynecki, were so impressed by the decorations that they decided to do an impromptu performance outside. They even commented on Consuelos's video, writing, “And thank you Mark!! This place was just too perfect, we had to musically do something about it [smiley face emoji] [pumpkin emoji].”

The talk show hosts discussed the moment in an episode of Live on Wednesday, October 25.

“Something really great happened yesterday,” Consuelos began. “I came home. Now, our house is decorated to the nines...I walk in and I'm putting my stuff down and all of the sudden I hear this beautiful music, this like Halloween music. And somebody in the house said, ‘Did you guys add music to the display?’ And I go, ‘No.’”

Then, in the video we see Consuelos pop his head out the door and look totally shocked, which elicited laughs from the audience. “That is so New York in a nutshell!” Ripa remarked. “That should be a commercial for New York.”

We always love getting a rare shot of Kelly and Mark’s house, but the Riverdale actor’s reaction made our day.
