Happy Halloween

Are there really people who would do this much decorating for a dinner party on Halloween? I took this photo inside a Pottery Barn store where an abundance of expensive Halloween ornaments, plates, napkins, candleholders, and other bric-a-brac were available for the inspired hostess.

I know that some of my foreign readers don’t celebrate the holiday Halloween but, for those of you who do, have a happy and safe one. In the US there will be many trick-or-treaters knocking on doors dressed in costumes and hoping for candy at each stop. Parents will need to be prepared for the oncoming sugar rush!
By the way, Halloween is a name that was shortened from All-Hallow-Eve or the eve of All Saints Day which is on November 1st.

What would you serve to eat with these kind of decorations. Not sure what they do in London.

This is more scary than the pumpkins! I agree with Mo, what would you eat?

Happy Halloween! We don't really celebrate it in Malta but it looks like it's setting in. I do dress my kids up and go trick or treating but only to a few family and friends.

It's amazing how much Halloween US style has caught on in the UK over the past four or five years. I wonder how many pumpkins the USA export to us each year now?

I have a small Halloween slide show to share.
