Hopefully we'll have some parties to attend :) I love making Halloween treats and all of the decorations...but the cute witches, not scary!

littlelatina said...

this is cute enter me

Lim said...

I don't party but I do decorate and hand out goodies. I go for the scary rather than the cute decorations and heard one kid say that our house creeped him out.

laurielufkin said...

And the answer is YES! I love my Halloween decoration and put them up as close to October 1st as I can--and enjoy them all month long. I have probably four giant bins full of stuff that I have collected over the years--so much fun!

Nah, I really don't do parties for any occasion.


2. Do you decorate your home or office for Halloween?

Yes, I decorate my home pretty extensively. Not the office, though- wouldn't look quite right in a funeral home!

3.Do you like to make fun Halloween food?

Yes! I especially like sugar cookies in Halloween shapes.

Pete S. said...

I haven't hosted a Halloween party in ages, but I love costume parties. Now that I'm in my new house I would really enjoy hosting a Halloween costume party. So, yes, that's the plan for this year.

I don't usually decorate for Halloween. However, I do like to dress up when giving out the candy. My new neighborhood has lots of kids, and that will be an added incentive.

I haven't tried making Halloween food before. Your book is inspiring me to do so!

Jannine Fisk said...

I have hosted Halloween parties in the past for my nieces and nephews but sadly they are getting too old and mature to party with Auntie, so I won't be having a party this year. As for decorations, YES! I have everything from fake bones to gravestones and I love to decorate my house and yard for Halloween. I also do Halloween baking and creepy foods (such as mummy dogs and blood punch) but I would love to win your book so I can make some new treats! Thanks for the giveaway!

1. Yep, a friend and I are throwing a big Halloween party this year at the local orchid nursery.

2. Yep, we usually decorate our house inside and out - takes about a week to decorate and a week to take it all down again.

3. Yep, I usually do the Halloween food. I've made cheese plates cutting out the cheese using small Halloween cookie cutters, made graveyard cake, monster punch, worm cupcakes, and my "Terrible Tiramisu" cake with drowning marshmallow ghosts on a sea of cream :). What a way to go!

Barbarawr said...

When my kids were little, I used up all my Halloween energy. We would go to a fabric store, look through the patterns,and I let them pick any costume they wanted, and I'd make it for them. So I'm totally Halloweened out and REALLY appreciate not having to do any of it.
