Halloween is the best. holiday. ever.
Okay, I’m biased because it’s my birthday and I’ve grown up celebrating the holiday with wild abandon. Even Peaches– yes, costume-averse Peaches– has had to get in on the celebration. Beginning October 1, Peetey and I got out the jars of rats and spiders to adorn the built-ins. Halloween throw pillows came out. Our giant orange glitter skull/candy holder watches the front door. We carefully arranged the skulls and began working diligently on the handmade fabric streamers.
Now that Peetey is older and infatuated with creepy things, the standard orange and black is being joined with a bit of weird. “Blood” dripping off of some new skull paintings, eyeballs in ice cubes, and a vampire themed invitation where I transformed our whole family in to blood suckers.
Stay tuned for the Halloween photobooth, the hand-written “Bootique” menu and images of the custom made fabric streamers that will make this Halloween go down in history.
