spooky scenes
It's almost Halloween! Although this year won't be like any other and the trick or treaters will be a lot less, it's still one of my favorite holidays. I am one of those people that tries and decorates for all the holidays - pandemic or not! So of course the fall decorations were out but as it gets closer to halloween, I love to add just touches of those decorations out as well. I didn't focus as much on the exterior of the house this year due to that most trick or treating will be curbed given the virus and safety but I would like my family to feel like it hasn't been foregone this season.

This is one of the times that I really appreciate that our crates come in a variety of colors. I have found that the our black crates are perfect for creating spooky table/buffet centerpieces. How fun is the one that we did above? Super simple to come together with some simple pumpkins and things that I had around the house. This one was for our large island in the kitchen and hovering above it are witches hats dangling from the ceiling with fish wire. Once the lights are dimmed and the candles all lit, it really sets a spooky scene for a halloween dinner. While we may all be a bit too old to do any actual tricker or treating, I am hoping to have a few people over in a socially responsible way for a bit of a costume party and for some socializing. I have been researching some halloween cocktails that I think would be fun to pass around as well as some themed appetizers to serve. How will you be spending your halloween this year? Don't let 2020 stop you from enjoying the small things - halloween has always been a fun time for our family and we hope that it still will continue to be that way for others! Stay safe and have fun this year!

As always, you can find our black crates here:  amazon
