Happy Halloween from Elizabeth at Room at the Beach in Maliboooo!
Halloween really is the beginning of the holiday season. As the weather starts to bring a bite to the air our thoughts turn to entertaining our friends, neighbors, and families.
Halloween is a wonderful start to the party season as it is time to let your imagination run wild. Your home is your canvas and stage, and creating a spooktacular display is rewarded by the oohs and awes passing by your front door…and, drawing them near on that fateful night.
This year I thought it would be fun to set up a spooky scene for my kids and the neighbors to visit. The kids will have to go through a dark back gate to reach the ghostly scene to locate the treasure trove of candy. I’ll use battery-powered tea lights in paper bags with small pumpkin-shaped cut-outs to provide a soft light for safety along the pathway.
Once inside, my focal point for this year’s eerie event is a miniature grave yard. A quick stop at a nearby nursery or pilfering in your own garden shed will be enough to make this for your table.
Add any dead leaves, stones or moss add to the ghoulish scene
This creepy, but cute centerpiece will certainly set the scene for your spooky evening. Add some yummy sweets and snacks around, and you’ve created all you need for the tricks and treats of this holiday!
