Listen on the Go!
With just a few days until the trick or treaters arrive at our doorsteps, I thought it would be fun to do a different kind of post today, giving you a ton of ideas, from crafts, DIY decor, table setting ideas to of course very scary but delicious vegan food, and yes, a long list of vegan friendly candy to choose from.
Growing up, Halloween was such a big deal at my house, that our Halloween parties were legendary! We would decorate the whole house, I was always in charge of the cobwebs (my favorite part), we would go trick or treating and have tons of candy waiting for our neighbors. Everyone would be in costume and my mom would be in the middle of the party with all my friends, would leave without anyone noticing and would get dressed up as a witch/fortune teller in such a creative way that nobody would recognize her. She would read everyone's fortune in a very scary way (after previously asking all of the kids parents in secret what their kids were going through which made the whole thing extremely accurate and spooky). For years and years no one ever knew that the fortune teller and my mom were the same person and it was everyone's favorite moment of the night. When I got older, since I did a lot of acting and theater in my school, I was always in charge of telling the young kids a story that would scare the jelly beans out of them right before they headed inside our school's haunted house. So yes, I was the person that would make them not even want to cross the door. So much fun. Have I mentioned I love Halloween?
There are so many awesome ideas out there that I've curated this little list to help you along the process, with some of my favorites and links to their fabulous creators, DIY tutorials, recipes and more, so you can channel my mother and create the most incredible event ever!
