Are you on candy delivery duty this holiday? Here are some Stay At Home Halloween Ideas to create a festive space to prepare for the night ahead.
We all know Halloween night can be hectic, so make these DIYs early to enjoy the spooky stories and ghoul gossip.
So many questions for a one-night holiday! Who’s ready for Halloween? Do you have your candy? Is anyone dressing up?
My kids are no longer “kids” and are now adults, so decorating and buying candy was the most I got done this year.
My front porch is set and prepared for those in the neighborhood 🙂
Have a safe Halloween, everyone!
Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 90
Hello, and happy Halloween!
Alright, I’m on candy delivery duty. Anyone else?
Though, it isn’t as bad as you might think. While waiting, I enjoy a few pieces to myself 😉
If you’re also staying at home, here are some fun ideas and crafts to make this weekend before the big day.
Style your home for the block to witness and remember for future Halloweens!
I’m thankful to have finished my front porch before the weekend while saving a trip to the store to purchase last-minute treats.
Before we get into this post, comment below on your kid’s or your costume this year! I always love hearing about the latest trends and the funnest outfits!
Personal Note from Janine
When I was a little girl, it always seemed that my mom would make some dinner that had my least favorite vegetable.
I remember sitting at the table trying to eat my overcooked soggy zucchini.
My older brother was assigned to take me out trick-or-treating, and there I was, sitting at the table, trying to eat my vegetables.
Somehow I ran out of paper napkins, or maybe my mom made sure not to have a pile on the dinner table that night. Either way, I was the only one at the table trying to finish my meal.
Well, my brother got impatient with me, grabbed my veggies, and hid them in the front porch bush!
I was shocked and surprised at how he solved my Halloween dilemma in one quick action!
So the moral of this story is don’t cry over your vegetables. Come up with creative solutions and enjoy the Halloween festivities.
Just joking! You could say this is my trick for this holiday.
