Oh Halloween! I love Halloween! the glitter, the spark, the make-up, the “gore”, the chance to be odd without anyone judging (well… less judging I shall say) I love it all! Autumn (or Fall for my dear people in USA) is one of my favourite seasons. The colours, the scents, the food and the celebrations.
Moving to the USA has enhanced my love for autumn, even if I don’t get the magnificnet nature colours I used to get in the UK (It just doesn’t happen that way down in Texas) I have now added Thanksgiving to my list of things I love about Fall.
But before thanksgiving, HALLOWEEN!!! yes I go all out for Halloween. And here to show you some of the decorations we put up at home, hopefully to inspire you into adding some halloween magic to your house. Trick or Treat!
I started by re-using my IKEA Greenhouse (for more info see link) you can make it child friendly as I did, using paper cuttings, plastic skulls and couldrons or make it grownup spooky all gore and fresh by using fake blood splattated over the greenhouse and plastic thumbs (just and idea) but since I have kids I made a kid friendly halloween greenhouse.
The rest of the house we covered with fake Spiderwebs which you can find almost at any shop (Michael’s , Target, Walmart) paying special attention to the fireplace area. We added a few accent pumpkins and spider candle holders.
and there you have it! Happy Halloween! Let the candy fest begin!
