A Hygge Halloween

With all the candles lit, plenty of warm jack-o-lantern soup in our bowls and my family carving the pumpkin we picked up at our local farm together, Halloween has truly been a hyggelig event this year. I enjoy making the change of seasons a happy time in our home.

In honour of the spooky season, we hosted a spooktacular and served Halloween-inspired food including; Franken guac, a creepy charcuterie board, mummy dogs, a skeleton veggie tray and spider cupcakes for dessert.

As for decor, the dollar store was on point this year-pumpkin lanterns, a black lace spider web table runner and witches' brew potion bottles. Meanwhile, Henry and Rosie were busy getting crafty at our kitchen table and made potato stamp ghosts, toilet paper roll bats and mummy mason jar luminaries. Holiday magic always sparks a childlike spirit in my heart.

Henry and Rosie are excited to go trick-or-treating tonight in their handmade costumes. We go green for Halloween by creating DIY masterpieces out of things we have around the house and by making old costumes new again (e.g a dance costume I wore twenty-five years ago!)

Presenting my little Transformer "Optimus Prime"...

And her Majesty, the Queen.

Happy Halloween, friends!
