This is the first year in a long time where my home will not be welcoming halloween through an entrance of cobwebs…
Halloween to me is really just another excuse to have a party, not that you ever need an excuse to entertain your friends and family. Even though I am not home for this occasion, I am definitely not staying out of the fun, I can live my halloween dreams vicariously through my pinterest page! I have had a lot of fun over the past few years creating spooky halloweens and I have loved cruising pinterest to gather a few more ideas for my next halloween soiree.
Pinterest is an amazing website that really is a rabbit hole that I fall down; most nights you can find me scrolling through the millions and millions (there is close to 75 billion images on pinterest with over 170 million users pinning new images daily) of images feeling more inspired by the minute. It really is a site that I use every day and I cannot recommend it enough for anyone who loves to just sit quietly and ‘look’! The amount of amazing Halloween ideas I have come across have well and truly filled my Halloween pinterest board to the brim.
Here are just a few of my favorites….
- A spooky Halloween table setting in my front yard, I stuck to dark and moody monotones for this outdoor extravaganza.
- Trick or Treat? Create your own with a selection of DIY giveaways. All simple, all scary and all so much fun.
- Something for the adults, a squid ink linguine that is perfect to serve on Halloween night.
For an unlimited amount of inspiration, you simply must spend some time on Pinterest. And whilst you are there, make sure you follow me @chykak
