So, admittedly, we aren’t huge Halloween people. We don’t dress up like all the cool kids. (But I do dress up the pugs.) I don’t really decorate for it.
But, this year – Halloween was actually a lot o’ fun. First, our friends Jon and Ann invited us for dinner. We had a fabulous dinner and Ann did up the table setting for Halloween. It was total Martha-esque.
The mummy is made with a foam head and coffee-stained decoupage. Love it.
And, she got the idea for the tree and origami from Martha herself.
They carved out a pumpkin for a cooler.
And even had fun place settings.
It was just such a fun table set-up.
Everything was just so.
I told Ann she needs to blog. She’s so crafty.
Ann and I also carved pumpkins, since our husbands had no interest. We decided to try our hand at house numbers, and they turned out awesome.
And, as an aside – here’s how we took care of a piece of pumpkin that popped off – just screw a screw into the piece to hold it. So smart, right?
The guys dug up the grape vines. Ann and Jon didn’t want them any more so Ryan planted them at the new house. I’m envisioning grape jelly in our future.
Ann made us these awesome glasses, which we wore throughout the night. Who needs a costume?
Then, on Halloween, we hung out at home and passed out candy for a while. We don’t get an obscene amount of trick-or-treaters, but it gives me a reason to buy a lot of candy.
And, this list makes me laugh – all the stuff we need for the house. And, then at the bottom – candy. For trick-or-treaters. Thank goodness Menards has candy, too. Kill lots of birds with one stone.
How was your Halloween?
