Everything You Need For A Truly Epic Halloween

Here is why I feel okay about the fact that I will be putting in something akin to “zero” effort re: my son’s birthday party this year:

Because this was what I did last year, and he deemed it “okay. Not very spooky though.”

So I think it safe to say we’re dealing with a tough customer. And my feeling is, you know: y’all got a trampoline a week ago. You’re welcome. (I will be making a spooky cake, of course, but the rest of the festivities will involve takeout Chinese and plastic eyeballs stuck on top of supermarket cupcakes, and it will be great, because I will be sane and he will be on a trampoline, and there you have it.)

But! In the past couple of years I’ve gone seriously all-in around this time of year, so here’s a roundup of some of my favorite Halloween-related posts and projects, in case you’re in the mood to make these things happen.
