After days of waiting, finally Halloween arrived! We were a bit behind in our decorating this year as we were in France until the middle of October, then I was teaching at the Creative Festival. I taught a fun card class to a great group of women, I'll post pics of those soon, I promise.
After a day or so of recovering, we finally got down to the business at hand.. Halloween! Out from the crawlspace we pulled the 3 bins of Halloween decorations. Some seem to be missing though, can't find the screaming tomb-stone anywhere or the skeleton lights - hmm...
Everything else goes up, the giant spider we hang from the ceiling, the skeleton tray, the garland (purple), do not cross tape,a burping rat for a table centerpiece, the adorable squashed witch door decoration... and many other various things my kids have made in Nursery school and kindergarten over the last few years...
I set about organizing the menu - we have some standards that appear every year.
- Bat Loaf - My meatloaf recipe cooked in a bat shaped meatloaf pan
- Ghost Potatoes, - Mashed potatoes piped into ghost shapes
- RIP sandwhiches
