Five Ways to Spice Up Your Halloween

1. Pumpkin Spice: Although everything from coffee to candles now comes in pumpkin spice, don’t shy away from the trend. There’s a reason why so many companies added pumpkin spice to their line of flavors… it’s good stuff. Add pumpkin spice to your pancakes, muffins, and frostings.

2. Front Porch Decorations: You don’t have to create an entire haunted house on the big day. Some fake spider webs, creepy music, and a fog machine will get the same effect with less effort. Add a motion-detection mummy and you’ll be sure to scare up some Halloween fun.

3. Simple Costumes: Less is more. Instead of elaborate costumes, try something simple. A simple white sheet (with holes for your eyes) makes for an amusingly basic costume. Or a green apron and white shirt turns you into your local barista.

4. Ceramic Pumpkins: Carving pumpkins can be messy and time consuming. Plastic pumpkins look cheap. Spend $25 and invest in a durable, ceramic pumpkin. With either a classic Halloween face a more artistic design, a ceramic pumpkin is an upscale alternative to this front porch tradition.

5. Treat Friends and Family Right: For those front-door giveaways, stick to the standard, pre-wrapped candies and chocolates. However, for the teachers, grandparents, and neighbors, go homemade or gourmet. Sit down with a professional baker and create some fun Halloween treats. Search the Internet and social media sites for amusing decorations and ask a local baker to match the look.
