It's beginning to look alot like...


Our 15+ Halloween tubs will be unearthed this weekend.
You think I'm joking? I'm not.
We have a TON of decorations.

Decorating for Halloween literally takes weeks and is a family affair. These preparation pictures were taken from the last few years of party planning.

Get ready for lots of pictures and crafting ideas throughout the next month. We've got big plans for our 20th annual family-friendly party.

Be sure to remind me of my excitement when I have to pack it all up November 1st.

Have a bootiful weekend.

Don't forget, I'll be drawing a winner for my no-strings attached Halloween give-away at 6:05pm on Sunday (EST). There's still time!

I want to come trick or treating to your house! I know.. the clean up part sure is a pain in the neck. all my stuff just turns into the next holiday.. halloween from sept 1 through nov 4th or so (when ever I get sick of it) that sort of then morphs into thanksgiving. most of the halloween gets put away, except for pumpkins, gourds.. etc and thanksgiving joins in the fun. The day after thanksgiving, christmas comes out and stays out til abouth jan 7th or so. then the christmasy stuff goes away, wintery stuff stays out and snowmen join in to hang out for a couple months! then about feb 1st alot of snowmen go away. (my favs stay out) and valentines come out and stay out until march when easter comes out. Easter morphs into spring, spring into patrioticy summery, then beachy summer.. then back to halloween! I dont even have a "normal" house anymore!! lol
I think you do about the same dont you?
we is nutso!

WOW. That is just amazing. And cute too. The witches feet are a great touch! We're doing a haunted library theme this year and finding that harder than I expected.

15 tubs!! You do love Halloween! I see you are from West Mi. Me too... I live in Grand Haven, are you near by?

Pam Kessler said...

Wow, that's a lot of boxes. Since it's your 20th year anniversary I'm sure it will be a bigger blow out than usual.

Hi Kim, I so wish I could lend you my son for your Halloween party. He is a lighting specialist and would SOOOOO appreciate all your efforts for his favorite holiday. Did you know he and his newlywed were married on Halloween in costume? He was the Monopoly Man, she was a Fairy. I can't wait to see all of your tubs fill your home. What fun! Elizabeth

Barbara said...

Looking forward to spending the holiday with you (online, I mean!) Those outdoor lights are amazing!

Donna said...

Wow, you really DO take Halloween seriously in your house, Kim! I had to do a double take when I read how many boxes of decorations you have! Can't wait to see it all!!

Unknown said...

That's a whole 'nother level of Halloween Kim. You're party is sure to be a blast. If the kids were living in state I would definitely be putting all mine up. I thought I did a lot but you've got me way passed. Love your tree and the outside is fabulous!

Have fun this weekend...Tracy
