I have been searching the internet for ideas, mainly pinterest. Last year I made marshmallow pumpkin and Frankenstein monster pops. We made water melon brain with jelly worms which was rather messy to make but looked good. Add to that the pumpkin poo and jelly swamp that the children were a bit scared to eat, we had some great Halloween themed food.
This year I want to add to my outdoor props. I am going to starch cheesecloth over a foam head and drape cheesecloth from the head to create a ghost. I will hang this near my water feature with a curtain of white lights behind to enhance the ghostly shape. I want a fog/mist maker to put in my water feature so the fog drifts up and through the cheesecloth. I have it all planned in my head. I have no idea what I will do if it rains, please don't rain on Halloween. I would love to do small ghostly shapes dancing around fire but I think my husband already thinks I have lost the plot.
