HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS
Brown-Butter Maple Popcorn -- perfect for all of Autumn's parties
We have been celebrating Halloween for weeks, because, why not? First we did these super simple and very effective oversized spiderwebs, and since then we have been layering decorations. We added in our pumpkins from last year. Our children love to dress up regardless of the season, so we just decided to make some of ...

Perforated Pumpkin Luminaries - A Fun Halloween Cardboard Craft
This year I did not have the energy to go collect a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch and carve it with a toddler, so we tried something new!  We "carved", painted and decorated cardboard pumpkins and made them into perforated pumpkin luminaries.  This method is 'less mess and no stress', using materials you already have on ...

How we do Halloween, when we don’t do Halloween.
As a child, growing up in a part of South London which was, at the time (early 90’s) rather under-represented, Halloween was a given. Halloween seemed to be everywhere, and everyone celebrated it. Or at least that’s how it felt when I was 7 years old. I had a couple of very makeshift outfits, remember ...

Oversized Kirigami Spider Webs -- a quick DIY Halloween decoration (and game too)!
Growing up, I loved Halloween so much! And I hope my children say the same same day. This year I have decided to start Halloween a bit earlier in the month, and to make up for all the things we can't do -- school Halloween discos and trick-or-treating, I have focussed on the things we ...

Halloween luminaries, a sweet last-minute craft and fun for all ages!
Halloween is not a traditional holiday in the Netherlands, but we have adopted the tradition. The children like to dress up, we decorate the house with spooks and spiders and I make some scary dishes for dinner. We do walk around the neighbourhood -- there's a specific street where people really make an effort to ...

Papier-Mâché Pumpkins -- fun Halloween decoration
It's October, which means Halloween excitement is happening our house. It also means we have some fun Halloween crafts up our sleeve for the next few weeks. But I was reminded of our papier-mâché pumpkin we made last year! Actually, we made a whole box of fruit and vegetables, but really,  just making pumpkins would be ...

Tricks and Treats -- a collection of Halloween Ideas
Trick or treat? Do you celebrate Halloween? What do you prefer -- silly or spooky? Funny or ghoulish? In a lot of Europe it is considered a very American holiday. And as an American living in London, I am happy to see that it is becoming more popular each year. Dressing up (fancy dress as ...

Adorable Halloween costumes from Thumbelina
Halloween is around the corner, and I'm as unprepared as ever. Hmmm. !! I was feeling guilty about my tired stash of three-times worn Halloween costume options for Marlow and was needing a bit of inspiration... and these adorable costumes from Thumbelina have done the trick. How perfect are they?!  I love a good fleecey zip-up costume ...

Last Minute Halloween Costumes
This year for Halloween Henrik is going as a bat and Maja will be Red Riding Hood.  I like to keep Halloween costumes simple, something we have at home or they can wear over and over again as dress up. Henrik has been talking about being a bat for Halloween for a long time now ...

Personalized Halloween party bags
I can't believe we're well into October already! And Halloween is around the corner... Here in the UK, Halloween gets nowhere near the amount of attention as it does in America, and a 'Halloween party' is a bit of a novelty... but the American in me loves the idea (the costumes, the candy, the pumpkins!). ...

It must be Halloween season because dress-up items are everywhere in the kid's section at Ikea! They've brought out again the funny masks that Courtney wrote about a while ago (although I could not find the ladybird or the chick), and in the same Maskerade collection they have added these fun hats which can definitely be ...

Although it's certainly not as big of a deal here in London compared to the U.S., it's a big deal in our house, so we'll be celebrating today.  We'll head to the fancy neighborhoods of Kensington where you can find some of London's best trick-or-treating streets. My two boys will be dressed up (the younger ...

Halloween
As an American living in London, I don't usually cling defiantly to my roots and flaunt my "American-ness". It's not that I'm ashamed. It's more like I'm trying to fit in among the general (more reserved) British public. But today is an exception. Today is Halloween! The fantastic American (Hallmark) Holiday where every American child ...
