When I was a kid, my mom did the house UP for Halloween. Actually, she did the house up for every holiday. I would never be surprised to get presents for St. Patrick’s Day – despite not being Irish at all – and seeing the bins of decorations go up in a timely fashion for every holiday. Then there were birthdays, where we got balloons and garland, and the “junk” cereal of our choice. My mom is an artist/art teacher and loves all holidays, while I sometimes give in to moods or lack of moods, and I’m not quite up to her gusto. That said, I always loved Halloween and now it’s even better as a parent. It’s FANTASTIC.
If you need reminding, I can tell you that it was IN our wedding vows to be the most popular house on Halloween night. And oh yeah – my husband made an insane Halloween costume in six days and won the costume contest at the parade. We talk about Halloween for every day of October, and September, and by the way – have you seen our house? It’s decorated!
Even though we sometimes pull costumes together on the last possible day, or in my husband’s case – six days before Halloween, we do decorate and plan our house in advance. We also get inspired to cook up some fall recipes to add to the overall theme of the seasons, and to bring out our favorite smells, tastes and sights of Halloween. Our kids are big fans of the holiday, just like we have always been. There are five ways we do it UP for Halloween, starting with the best one.
1 – We decorate like crazy! This year, our “theme” was a new one for us. It’s Glam Halloween Décor. We favor a lot of black and metal colors this year. The whole family went shopping at Lowe’s together and couldn’t believe what they had.
I love their selection, but also their interactive displays. I love the way they group their products together so you get a real feel for how it will look in your home. And I love all the animatronic Halloween decorations, like this:

In fact, since I like you so much, I made a reel of our Halloween decorations in action. The majority of them had something really fun about them, and I wanted you to also experience the sights and sounds of it! Des helped make this video:
And here are four other ways we do it UP for Halloween! 2 – We get CRAZY with our Halloween costumes. We plan them for months in advance. 3 – We craft/DIY even more than usual – with pumpkin carving and all sorts of paper crafts. 4 – We light candles! Spooky! And 5 – We watch Halloween movies all month long. No doubt, this holiday is our time to shine.
