This year, the extent of my fall decorating (I can’t even call it Hallowe’en) is a bowl of gourds on the dining room table in one of my Dad’s hand-turned wood bowls.
Here’s a look back at Hallowe’en through the years.
Our first Hallowe’en, we carved a pumpkin based on Christopher Lee’s performance as Dracula–one of Matt’s favourite movies. The pumpkin even sat on the front stoop for a little while before we realized we were the only ones that were going to enjoy it and we brought it in to the fireplace hearth.
An eclipse coincided with our third Hallowe’en, creating a spooky blood moon.
Last year, our fourth Hallowe’en, I created a creepy haunted forest complete with real animal skulls on the mantel. I still love this display.
How are you celebrating Hallowe’en at your house? Do you decorate for Hallowe’en? Are you going trick or treating?
