Does anyone else feel overwhelmed after looking at Pinterest for Halloween ideas? I love seeing all the creativity, but sometimes the pictures with the perfect theme, with perfect coordinating decor and food complete with perfect costume makes me feel, well inadequate as a creative person. Some of the most simple ideas are the best ideas and can still make an impression without making yourself go crazy.
For decoration, decorate with things you have around the house and that you don’t have to spend any money on. I love the idea from Delia Creates. Use branches from outside and paint them black. Put them in a cylinder vase and you are done!
For food, I like it when the food can also serve as a decoration, but not take you all day in the kitchen to make. This idea from Creative Party Ideas By Cheryl is Perfect.
For kids costume, I love this simple ghost costume on Honey Mommy. Something in me feels weird about posting her adorable kids in the costumes, but this is all you need for supplies. Go see the costumes for yourselves!
