Halloween Weekend

Photobucket
Wishing you all a Happy Halloween! Do you have any plans this weekend to celebrate? It seems in the UK, that this is a holiday we are starting to celebrate more like our US counterparts. Any excuse for a special day and I'm in. Although I don't really have any special Halloween-related plans this year. Last year, the day landed on a Saturday so we hit the town. But town on a Saturday night filled with girls wearing red devil horns wasn't really my thing! I will be a little more low-key but I did manage to find this photograph I took last year of a cobweb on my car one damp and dewy morning and thought it looked quite spooky!

Halloween is not really my thing...and I have to work this weekend! :(
I guess it's getting bigger and bigger over here as well...there are a lot of Halloween themed parties!

Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Halloween! I do rather wish we made more of a big deal about it here in UK, it looks like one of the funnest holidays!

Hola my dear, it has been too long since I visited your blog last time, I've been baking cupcakes and cakes like crazy recently...
Hope we'll " meet" on a virtual coffee party again very soon:)

This is such a great photo! We're all raring to go in France with Halloween. It's definitely getting more and more popular over here now - hurrah! Any opportunity for a party and I'm in....! x

Beautiful spiderweb catch! My small children will dress up as a monarch butterfly and a baseball player and go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood with my husband.

I want to really goth out with all my gear from times past, pony falls, tiara, paleface, black ballgown skirt, and everything, as it's been years since I did so and goth is still considered a costume in my current town. Not sure I'll have time for that, though. I may just be wearing a rhienstone spider brooch when I hand out candy at our front door.

what a beautiful photograph and for me, no plans for halloween either, but like you say sporting some devil horns...hideous, or the frilly knickers that many tend to favour really isnt me!!
I would love a romantic candle lit dinner in old edwardian costume as an alternative!Hope you have a great weekend and quiet halloween Katie.xx

That's a gorgeous picture! I plan on staying in this Halloween and hopefully eating all the chocs we bought for the trick or treaters (fingers crossed they don't turn up!)

You are stunning with a bun. Paris doesn't really do Halloween. I'll drink a glass of wine. It'll be sweet.

Cassidy said...

Ahh I love Halloween! I'm trick or treating and watching scary movies all night with a good friend of mine :)

Last year I went to a Halloween ball in Central London, but that was more of a coincidence because my BF was playing in the band there. No plans for this year and I don't mind, it's not really something I'm too bothered about. That photo is great, so much better than all those deliberately spooky things... Have a great Sunday, Love from London x

Andhari said...

I know what you mean! I can't stand seeing girls aren't being creative with their red devil horns. I mean, there are still many more costumes!

Moon said...
