Halloween In My Home..


Hi Darlings,

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

I've had such a busy couple of days so I thought I'd show you some of the highlights!

The night before Halloween:

 Alex Baking her Witch Cake

Decorating Halloween cupcakes

 Some of the finished results

 My favourite winter jumper, so cosy and homely for crafty projects

 Alex bringing our stash of pumpkins in

 Yes we really did have that many!

Carving out the pumpkin houses

 One of the finished results

 Outlining the freshly carved Jack o Lantern

Halloween:

 Zombie fingers - made from chocolate fingers, pumpkin seeds and blackcurrant jam

 Some of the fun cakes we made including Luce's Rocky Road Spiders

 The Jack o Lantern in action

Luce, having just drawn her spider on (it is now somewhat smudged)

The Witch Cake

 Snacks table

Spiders! 

 Toes - made of hotdog sausages, tomato sauce and tortillas

Our pumpkin village 

 A close up of one of the pumpkin houses

Frogspawn jacket potatoes for dinner

We've had so many Trick or Treaters tonight, some of them had put so much effort into their costumes and were lovely - it was so much fun to see them all. A group of 13 year old zombie schoolgirls (read tarty schoolgirls) not quite so nice, but you can't have it all!

Now I'm off to watch The Witches, (it's something we do every year) and eat a massive amount of sugar.

See you all tomorrow lovelies, I hope you had an awesome night!

  18. Those zombie fingers looked almost too real for me, I admit, I kinda made a face when I saw them...I'm sure they were delicious. That elbow patch sweater is gorgeous.

  24. Great photos! It must be fun with those creative pumpkins. Halloween isn't celebrated much in my country - but it always been fascinating whenever I watch tv or read stuff involving halloween. :)

  30. I LOVE all your Halloween ideas and have to implement some of them next year! And your pumpkins are really adorable. :) I feel like i haven't *seen* you in forever - whenever I tried to access your blog (from your url that you leave in your comments), my work computer blocks me saying there is some kind of "dangerous" html - I realized it's because there is a little typo in your address (www.shebeginstosee.BLGOspot.com) that takes readers to an ad site - I wanted to let you know in case it's happening to others. Hope you are well!

    1. Oh no! Thankyou so much for letting me know! I'll make sure I check it much closer next time. Once I write out my signature I copy and paste it on to the end of my comments so that would be why it was consistently wrong. I'm so sorry hun! x
