Throwback: Halloween 2014

So back in 2014 I had lots of energy for celebrating Halloween (unlike Halloween 2016, it turns out :/). I had the best time decorating our house that year, making lots of yummy treats and organising parties for the kids. Although Halloween was slightly lower key for Jess back then, both Sarah and Luke were still fully into Halloween and all it's fun and excitement.

Okay, so it's got to be said: I have collected quite a few Halloween decorations over the years (and, yes, I can't help adding to my collection every year) and now I seem to have almost as many Halloween decorations as I have Christmas decorations in this house! But hey, isn't that what life is all about? Celebrating special occasions and making memories as we go? I think so. And besides, it's such fun! Anyway, here are a few of my bats and creepy crawlies: ;)



And this is our treat bowl (below) which I keep at the door for when children come trick or treating. It has a skeleton hand that pops out when the kids put their hands into the bowl and I get quite a few screams with that thing! It's brilliant! Haha! (And that bowl is still going strong and frightening kids every year! Love it!)


We made these beauties again that year:


And my mom made these cute ghosts: (Love them!)


She also baked these witch fingers again: (Shortbread is the best!)


And our Mummy cupcakes:


And while I was in London, I picked up a few Halloween goodies too - these cool drink bottle stickers were some of my cool finds:


And even though these spooky ghouls look quite messy, let me tell you that they were mad delicious! (What's not to love about a brownie covered in melted white chocolate and topped with a marshmallow?) 


And here is a gruesome photo of Luke and his mates: (I didn't seem to get any photos of Jess or Sarah and their friends that year, apparently...)


PS No kids were harmed in that last photo. ;) 

And that's Halloween 2014. Over and out. x
