Celebrating Your Inner Halloween Spirit Theresa October 3, 2016 Home, Lifestyle 8 Comments When you think of festive holidays, Christmas comes to mind. With all of the festivities, lights, and merriment, Christmas often overshadows other holidays. Before you rush into the anticipation of winter, embrace Halloween. For families, Halloween is an excellent holiday for making memories. Bringing Out Your Inner Halloween Spirit When October comes, you can become busy with the kids’ school schedule and other responsibilities. Even if extravagant Pinterest crafts overwhelm you, you can still get into the Halloween spirit. Creating Holiday Spirit In The Home One way to get into the holiday spirit is to order a simple bouquet. Designed with red spray roses, yellow sunflowers, yellow oak leaves, orange berries, and more, the Trick & Treat Bouquet from Teleflora offers a beautiful arrangement for your home. When the bouquet arrived at my home, Samantha’s face lit up, and she couldn’t stop smiling. Seeing her so happy made me realize that getting into the spirit of Halloween can help give her a lasting childhood memory. Nostalgic Halloween Memories For me, Halloween is an incredibly nostalgic time. Getting the bouquet delivered to my doorstep inspired me to venture down to the basement and dig through old photo boxes. Samantha followed me, and she delighted in discovering all of the photos from when I was almost her age. We spotted my photos from Girl Scouts, the pictures of my old dogs, and a complete gem – the photo of the first Halloween I spent in Indonesia – when I dressed like Pebbles Flintstone. This particular Halloween, our family was part of a parade in the American community we had just moved to in Rumbai, Sumatra. I was dazzled by the unique animals, the beautiful trees, and the warm people I met that day. Although this memory is so long ago, I can picture it clearly because it was the best Halloween I ever had as a kid. If you are a parent, making holiday memories special matters for your child. Get into the Halloween spirit and make a memory that will last a lifetime. Even if you aren’t much of a Halloween person, making the holiday special means so much to your kids. Making Halloween Special Getting into the spirit doesn’t have to involve dressing up when you’re an adult. Rent some of your favorite scary (or not so scary) Halloween movies, sip pumpkin spice coffee, bake pumpkin muffins, and enjoy the fall leaves changing color. With the Teleflora bouquet, you can bring those beautiful fall colors as well as a festive excitement into your house. Each detail of the bouquet is beautiful. Without the hassle of a handmade craft, you can have a gorgeous centerpiece for October. Celebrating Your Inner Child Halloween is a time that you and your kids both can embrace. As you get older, the holiday becomes mostly about the kids, but remember to find delightful ways to celebrate that you actually enjoy. Whether you’re someone who loves Halloween or not, getting into the Halloween spirit makes a huge difference to your kids (even when they don’t act like it does). If you don’t sew costumes and create table centerpieces, no worries. You can simply order a beautiful Teleflora bouquet to instill a sense of Halloween spirit in your home decor.

We couldn’t afford much in terms of costumes when I was little, but I’ve made up for it since then by having elaborate parties and dressing up from everything from a mermaid to Harley Quinn!
