More on the subject of Halloween.

I am all out of kilter this week.  Halloween is without a doubt my favourite time of year but I'm sure every year I get a little more carried away with the planning.  Currently attempting to  orchestrate a masquerade ball in a student house is turning out to take a little more brain power and effort than originally intended!
But, oh my gosh, I love the excuse to celebrate a day that everyone can enjoy equally.  I can't wait to carve my pumpkin whilst watching Coraline and to put lychees in every drink, maybe even my tea, and pretend that they are eyes.  I am so excited to play Halloween party games even though we are all too old and to go dancing in the garden between the grinning pumpkins. 

Sadly, what little time I am not spending getting carried away with ghastly plans, has been spent on my dissertation.  So instead of anything new to offer, I have raided my hard drive for pictures of Halloweens past, the quality might be a bit terrible but they are still something marvellous!

All the above pictures are actually cupcakes I made for a Halloween Supper in 2010.

This was The Mad Hatter's Tea Party from 2011.

And this was our Avatar Halloween.  Okay so it wasn't particularly scary but everyone wants to be painted blue and dramatic at least once in their life...right?
