With one week to go to Halloween it’s all witches and pumpkins around here. My neighborhood exploded overnight with Halloween decor, and it even warmed my Halloween Scrooge heart to see everyone get into the spirit
A few years ago we banded together with the neighbors on either side of us to plan a Halloween block party and this year will be our third? Fourth year in a row? It’s a huge hit and even with 60-100 people attending, it takes almost no time to put together between the three families This year we have a taco guy coming. In the past we’ve ordered a million pizzas, but we’re trying something new and as the person who has to order a sad, cheeseless pizza for myself, I am thrilled with the change of plans.
If you want to do something like this for yourself, here’s the super short version. We send out a flier a week or two ahead of time with all of the information. We do ask the neighbors to pitch in money for food and we provide the drinks, paper products and the location because our houses have a big open space that is perfect for this sort of thing. People are welcome to bring things but we don’t go crazy with food because the kids are all about to gorge themselves on candy. We hang out for about an hour and a half and then everyone disperses to trick or treat.
Also, you guys, I hope you’re sitting down for this because I have a Halloween costume for the first time in probably twenty years! I’ll be sure to post a photo on Instagram so make sure you’re following us!
