Okay, it’s true, I so love autumn, but recently, as in the last few years, I’m loving Halloween too. Only because in my world, all the kids around me live to dress up in their costumes and I can’t help but get excited along with them. Costume choice is already the hot topic at school. "What are you going to be?" "I’m going to be Bat Girl!" "I’m going to be Luke Skywalker!"
I’ve never liked the the gory side of Halloween. I really don’t care for for anything extremely bloody or too disturbing. Unlike the teenagers, I steer clear of haunted houses. But I do love the dressing up in costumes, carving jack-o-lanterns, and trick-or-treating side of Halloween. And I like the playful, whimsical, spooky side filled with spiders, witches, ghosts and goblins.
This year, we’re entertaining friends for a pumpkin carving party, so I thought I’d get a head start. Martha’s been making beverage labels for a few years now, and when I spied hers in the latest Living Magazine, I was inspired to create some of my own.
These beer bottle labels are perfect for the spooky ales we will serve.
Here’s a few poisonous potions I concocted for a Halloween vignette.
