Update from the blogosphere #94 – Halloween inspiration
Are you celebrating Halloween this weekend or next? With it falling midweek, itâ€™s a great excuse to celebrate double and go all out on both weekends. From decorations to costumes, home-made yummy treats and a few of the weird and wonderful pieces, Halloween is well and truly a major whimsical event in our calendar and we cannot wait to get started!
Get in the spooky mood with some ghostly decorations to frighten your neighbours or even your housemates/family! Emma Dazzle blogspot has some fantastic ideas that donâ€™t cost the earth and you can make them yourself â€“ perfect if you want to entertain the kids with some arts and crafts for a few hours. We love the autumnal colours and leaf dÃ©cor â€“ give it a go here.
The saying is â€˜trick or treatâ€™ but whoâ€™d choose a trick when the treats are this tasty? We spotted on Brown Eyed Bakerâ€™s blog 15 fabulous recipes for some Halloween treats. Â The only problem is, theyâ€™re too yummy to give away! But this is the smart thing, these recipes are for all your left over chocolates and sweets. Left over?!? Iâ€™m not sure weâ€™re really on the same page here. There are certainly no left overs in my home! Â If the pictures have got you drooling, head here to find out how to make them.
For us, itâ€™s the dressing up thatâ€™s the real coup. Itâ€™s the one time of year you can really go for it and you know someone else will try even harder to look even scarier or sillier. If youâ€™re still struggling for costume ideas, head to Catwalk Ready blogspot for some traditional inspiration from witches, pumpkins and zombies to all your favourite ghoulish attire. Best part? The make-up tutorials at the end which have inspired us to really go for it this weekend â€“ photos to come!
If youâ€™re heading out over the weekend for some eerie fun, be sure to take some snaps as here at BrandAlley HQ weâ€™ll be sharing ours next week. Now for the best Halloween music video ever madeâ€¦.hereâ€™s Thriller!
