I don't know about you guys, but we LOVE Halloween. Why? Well, Halloween doesn't care if you're over 10 years old. It doesn't judge your penchant for sugar - in fact, it promotes the stuffing of face with candy. And it embraces self-expression with more, shall we say, 'variety' than Easter and Christmas (really... what are the dress-up options?)

I once went to a Halloween party as the personification of the drink 'Sailor Jerry'. I was a Sailor, with a Jerry badge attached to my hat. I thought that was pretty ingenious myself. Last year we spent it trick or treating with Bella in the pouring rain, which was actually fantastic fun. Then we got all dressed up as a cat fairy (I wanted to wear wings) and an evil fairy for a night out in San Francisco. It was probably one of the best Halloweens yet. 

This year Amy has her hands full planning Bella's first Halloween party (a house full of party games for sugared-up 4-5 year olds: I'm actually a little jealous; I wanna play too). I'll no doubt be trawling some British pubs, at least drinking Sailor Jerry if not dressed as Sailor Jery. 

Pinterest has some AMAZING ideas for kids' Halloween parties. If you want some inspiration, check out our board!
