A couple weeks ago Steve and I went and picked up a fine looking bunch of pumpkins and some mums out in the country. I’m pretty sure we flew over the field where these pumpkins grew up!
I had good intentions of carving out the big pumpkins to fit the mums inside, like in this picture:
But that never happened. Oh well, the pumpkins and the mums still look great together on our steps! I don’t have a picture of this so you’ll just have to take my word for it. They are super cute.
On Saturday we had an impromptu Halloween party. We realized that we didn’t have any plans this Halloween (*gasp*!) but we wanted to dress up and have fun. Usually we go to Rockr and Junkii’s annual Wig Party, but they decided not to host one this year. It was fun trying to think up fun decorations. Since it was kind of last minute I just threw together a few fun ideas I found on Pinterest. Like these adorable mummy mason jar tea lights:
They’re real easy. All you need is gauze, googly eyes, mason jars, and glue!
Martha Stewart of course had some great ideas. I made her shrunken heads punch:
…and Butternut squash jack o’ lanterns:
I’m putting these and the mummy tea lights out on our steps tonight with the pumpkins. We’re thinking we’re going to get a lot of kids trick or treating in our neighbourhood. I can’t wait! We dressed up for our party as Jack Skellington and Sally from the Nightmare Before Christmas, but I think I’ll be something more kid-friendly for handing out candy.
My friend Jenny did an awesome job on our makeup!
What were you for Halloween this year?
