Halloween, celebrated the last day of October, has a special significance for children, who dress in funny or ghostly costumes and knock on neighbourhood doors shouting “Trick-or-Treat!” Pirates and princesses, ghosts and witches all hold bags open to catch the sweets or other goodies that the neighbours drop in.
The Trick-or-Treat tradition may not be widely practiced in France but there’s no reason not to have a bit of fun with these treats that are sure to keep the little ones busy!
Elisa from the blog Et Dieu Crea took these stunning images of their pre-Halloween party at home last week and we hope they inspire you as much as they inspire us!
To make ghosts you’ll need some white straws or wooden picks, a few marshmallows, a few pieces of white cloth, string and a marker.
Prick the marshmallow on your straw or wooden pick, take a square of white cloth, cover the marshmallow with it and tie it all. Draw ghost eyes and put them on top of your homemade muffins. Easy right?
For the rest of the decor, Elisa used items such as the spell book, ghosts straws, witch hats, raven and spider from Chocolate Show’s Halloween selection
Scary but not too much!
