An All Hallows Eve Ball

"Now is the time to free the heart
Let all intentions and worries stop,
Free the joy inside the self,
Awaken to the wonder of your life." - John O'Donohue

It began with carving. This was the first year S did the carving.

His carving looked exactly like his drawing, but a snackish squirrel chewed away some of the mouth. Naughty squirrel!

A snow pumpkin from the flurry on Saturday.

We hung the papel picado that I made when S was a tot....

and some Fall leaves, collected by S and his friends, then strung on nylon thread so they looked as though they were floating...

A feast for wild things was prepared...

there were chocolate beet-root cupcakes, caramel apples, apple cider & clementine jack-o-lanterns. And lots of glow sticks...

Then the first guests arrived which included a Spider Queen...

Treats were devoured and there was a WILD RUMPUS!

Before the wild things went trick or treating, we put the fog machine in our fire pit and placed our cauldron of candy upon it so that the ghouls who visited our nest while we were out would not go empty handed.

Then we ran off into the night in search of treats...

and perused the loot before going to bed.
