It’s Halloween in 2 days. Anyone planning on going Trick or Treating?

I haven’t been very organised this year with Halloween decor, but have stocked up the candy jar with treats that I have bought from LA – Pumpkin coloured Kit-Kat bars, Halloween themed Hershey chocolates and Tootsie rolls.

My lovely sister Caroline has stepped in to share some of her Halloween party decorations.

She decided to decorate in a monochrome and neutral palette, so no bright oranges and green this year.

The image above is of her front door adorned in a black crepe- paper wreath.

Here it is close up. You can find the step to step guide on the CountryLiving website.


Next up, are the pumpkins. She painted them in Farrow and Ball’s ‘All White’ and with a free hand drew on the creepy crawlies followed by a coat of black acrylic paint.


Don’t they look great on the stairs as they do on the mantelpiece?

Caroline has draped the banister and rails with some black artificial spider webs bought from a local craft store.


Hiding amongst the web is a scary plastic spider which she has coated with glitter.


Halloween is not complete without a bit of baking. Here my sister has made pumpkin cupcakes with a vanilla frosting decorated with sugar craft spiders and witches’ hats.


Hope you have enjoyed this post. Wishing those who celebrate Halloween a fantastic Trick and Treating. A big thank you to my youngest sister Caroline Tan (Instagram @Carotanml) for stepping in to help with this post.
