What to Wear, Eat, Decorate, Hear and Watch this Halloween!

Sharing is caring!

It’s my favorite time of year and I wanted to sprinkle in some Halloween inspo. to make your Halloween weekend the coziest, spookiest and happiest it’s ever been!  If you’ve followed me for a while, you know my nickname, Jenni Raincloud comes from loving all things gloomy, stormy, creepy and dark.  Funny fact, when I started this blog-I didn’t know it would turn into a skin care blog or else I would’ve named it something more fitting!  

Anyhow, I’m here to share my Halloween playlist and show this year’s decor! I’ve also rounded up some super fun and festive t-shirts and I’ve got a few last minute costume ideas too!  I’ll also share what we’re planning to watch and eat this holiday weekend!

I try to mix it up each year using very cheap decorations and repurposing what I already have.  This year I took to gold paint and sprayed a few plastic bugs and snakes.  They turned out incredibly chic to my delight!  Don’t underestimate the creepiness of strategically placed snakes-I love subtlety when it comes to Halloween decor!  I also found a few skulls a few years ago at Ross and put faux succulents in one and attached butterflies to the other which gives pops of color and adds a bit of whimsey!  Also, candles are a very cheap way to boost the spooky factor!  I also found a few Martha Stewart decorations for insanely cheap on Amazon Prime!  Martha knows Halloween.

I tend to revamp this same playlist each year.  I’m so happy with the new additions this year.  I’ve been listening to it non-stop!  My kids love it too!  Find my playlist HERE.

Wear:

On my other blog, I posted THIS post for 3 ideas on last minute costumes.  Gone are the days where I use Halloween as an excuse to look like a hooker.  Now, I want to not look generic!  Whether you’re just answering the door or going to a big party, I think these looks will be perfect.  Also, go HERE for last years post with 3 more costumes as well as other ideas!

I’ve also rounded up some fun holiday t-shirts that are affordable and 1-2 day shipping!  Who doesn’t need a Hocus Pocus tee?

There you have it!  Hopefully I’ve inspired you to have the best Halloween ever?!  Don’t forget the movies-Halloween, Amittyville, The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby, Skelton Key, Dracula, April Fools and Interview with a Vampire are a few of my favorites!   

Happy Haunting!  Jenni
