This year our Halloween decorations are more subdued than in previous years as I am unable to do the decorating, Little Miss has stood in this year, whilst I directed from the sofa. We have our traditional window in the kitchen nook and our ‘tree’ in the lounge. Last year we really went to town and enjoyed decorating the upstairs with a pumpkin themed window as part of the town’s alternative to trick and treating, a pumpkin hunt. It was great fun being creative and I fully intend to go big again next year.
There are some new decorations this year. The black and silver pumpkin was painted in an arts session on our May holiday. It was such a lovely morning sitting with my daughter whilst she painted and chatted that it was special to see the pumpkin to evoke those memories. I love my new Halloween skeleton cushion, I do like a seasonal cushion (and wreath) and when I saw it during the summer holidays, I knew it was just right for the holiday. The final new additions are the boo and spooky metal hanging decorations, a charity shop bargain at 50p each. I like a little mooch around a charity shop, sometimes you find that hidden gem.
