Halloween was a big deal here in Westgarth this year, mainly because of the large amount of young children who are now old enough to go “trick or treating”. We made our fabulous decorations using the instructions from Izabel’s blog EasyCraftsForChildren. We had wave after wave of ghoulish gangs and we set up our trolley in the hallway with 30 bags of lollies, The Amigurumi Zombie Bunnies, Red Back Spider and a horrible fake knife.
I got my inspiration for the trolley from Lauren from “The Thinking Closet” who creates attractive and functional stations which add a warm, welcoming touch to any social situation. Unfortunately I didn’t count on the volume of children and was soon running very low in supplies.
Fortunately for me, my wonderful neighbor 3 doors down has 4 small boys and was well prepared. when I told her I was running low she immediately offered me extra to keep the show rolling along. Her decorations were amazing and I loved her “scary skeleton photo-op” and the Pirate Ghost.
Jack the dog got into the spirit of things and had fun greeting everyone and playing catch with a toy pumpkin. Hope you had a great day, whatever you did.
