Halloween is this weekend and we can’t wait! We believe it’s how you live that matters, and creating fun memories with friends and neighbors is a great way to celebrate the holiday! For those of you still working on getting their home ready for a visit from trick-or-treaters, we’ve got some great ideas for you:
- Decorations: For a quick last minute way to decorate your front door, buy orange and yellow helium balloons and draw spooky faces on them! Tie the balloons all around your front porch for a simple yet scary effect. Another idea is to cut holes and shred an old bed sheet and hang it over a doorway for a frightening effect!
- Food and Drinks: Pour grenadine syrup into a large glass flask or pitcher, then slowly add chilled mango lemonade or orange juice on top. The grenadine and juice will separate to create a cool effect that will make your drink look like candy corn! Another idea is to draw pumpkin faces on clementine’s. They’ll instantly look like tiny pumpkins and they’re a healthy alternative to passing out candy.
- Costumes: This list of last-minute children’s Halloween costumes from Parenting Magazine has some great ideas. We especially like the meatballs and spaghetti costume!
