Whether you've been procrastinating or decided last minute to have some fun this evening, I've tossed together a few ideas to help get you into the Halloween spirit in practically seconds. I'm a firm believer that slow + simple is best. There's no use rushing around if you're going to end up in a panic or all stressed out. Perhaps you've decided to entertain last minute or head out someplace last minute... There's no need to go overboard. Need some last minute Halloween costumes? Pinterest is the place to go with a great selection, many ideas require little effort and can be made from items you already have in your home. Having a few people over last minute? Be sure to hop over to my recent post, 14 Adorable Treats for Halloween for kids from 1 to 99. Need some more ideas? Williams-Sonoma has some great ideas for you on their board - last minute snacks, treats, and party ideas. Below see how a pineapple, some balloons, rubber snakes, syringes, a raincoat and an umbrella, a few stuffed animals, black paint, and gourds can quickly get you into the Halloween spirit. And yes, there's even something for our furry, four-legged friends!
