Despite my dislike of Halloween there are little ones in this family who are all about free candy and costumes. So when it comes to celebrating in our house we keep the focus on sweet treats and the ghouls to a minimum.
Out front 3 friendly jack-o-lanterns (electric to avoid the combination of fire + costumes) greet guests on the porch. While the front carriage lights are now home to two pairs of homemade ghosts (white floral foam balls covered with squares of plastic table clothes).
I removed the sunflower from the center of our fall wreath and opted instead to adorn the wreath with a rich autumnal ribbon and quail plumes. It was exactly what this decade old wreath needed.
So tell me, are you ready for Halloween? The Boys' costumes are ready to go and Belle's is scheduled to arrive this week. Fingers crossed we don't get any last minute changes.
