I've been busy all day baking cupcakes, carving pumpkins, setting up the party food and preparing for the after party to trick or treating. It sure has been an awesome ride. It's the first Halloween in our new house and our new estate so I wasn't sure how many trick or treaters we would have or how many houses would participate - so I sent out invitation and hoped that it would all come together - and it did!!
I dressed up as a witch and my youngest daughter dressed as Wonder Woman. We all headed off with friends at 5.45pm. There were all different ages of children joining in, and they all excitedly looked for the balloons on the mailboxes (that I sent out in the invites) and ran with their carry bags/buckets. Some of the houses were dressed up, some of the people in the houses were dressed in costume. Some people just left buckets of candy on their front porch with notes. It was so much fun. Here's some photos of our walk and the after party.
You can see me up the back - I was wearing my little hat cause the wind got a bit wild for my dressy witches hat. My daughter is in the front with her Wonder Woman outfit and purple skeleton bag.
This is in my foyer - my hall table got transformed with rats, brooms, candelabras, pumpkins and creations I have made through 31DOH.
This is my table - all decked out with apothecary jars, Halloween creations and creepy crawlies.
Some of the food on offer - snakes, pretzels, cupcakes, lollies, crackers, dip and chips.
Lots of cupcakes and orange Oreos.
I also carved a "Sadness" pumpkin for my eldest daughter. She's Amber's favourite character from Inside Out the movie.
My youngest daughter asked for Zero the dog to be carved from her pumpkin. He's from The Nightmare Before Christmas.
Thanks so much for joining me on the 31 Days of Halloween blog hop!!
