    Day of the Dead. I got some decorations 70% off on Thursday and I think I can get a lot during the year at dollar stores, goodwill, etc. Also it goes perfectly with my plant to have a taco bar catered so I don't have to do the food. Also, I got a skull cake pan a few years ago that I have never used, that I finally will use! Planning for next year really helps with the after holiday blues.

    Have two themes. One side of the yard will be a haunted dinner party - I'm thinking of using Mr. Chicken's Sybil as the center piece, having a drinking skeleton and a couple of animated skeletons doing things. I'll have some floating candles above the dinner table.

    The other side of the year will be a haunted beach party/fish fry. Outside of a skeleton turning a rotisserie with skeleton fish, I haven't thought this side through much. Maybe I'll have my talking skull channel Jeff Spicoli.

    We're doing "Silent Night Deadly Night" which will basically be focused around the 2015 Krampus movie. Hoping for some really great after Christmas sales for additional lighting but most everything else will be handmade

    I'm doing the 'get off your butt and start setting up' theme, lol. There comes a point over the years where that's the plan and as long as you can follow through, the theme will come.

    We are considering a Ghost Pirate ship themed party, all the guests to come as manky looking pirate crew and the host (me) to go as the Captain.

    Lots of white fabric to be collected over the year to make ship sails and I think we'll position a couple of projectors either side with a loop of rough seas. (Hope it doesn't make anyone sick!)

    Since my kids have outgrown "trick or treating" I have been giving them parties. My daughter suggested a "Death Row" theme and my son wants a "Gamer's" themed party. (He wants to dress as Link from Breath of the Wild.) If you awesome Halloween lovers have any suggestions for either of these I would love for you to share them with me. (Ages: high schoolers)

    A MIDNIGHT DREARY:

    Basically, it’ll be similar to Dawnski’s theme this year.

    I’m inviting guests to attend “a swinging wake” for Lucy Westenra (Mina Harker’s best friend in Bram Stokers Dracula). House will be decorated very much like a Victorian funeral parlor. I’ll hang black crape drapes on outside front windows, cover interior mirrors with black fabric, lots of black flowers around, etc.

    Im using AtmosFX and a projector for the first time (spooky ballroom couple waltzing in upstairs window seen from front yard).

    I got the 6 foot tall skeleton horse on sale and I’m planning on building a carriage hearse for front yard.

    I’m also trying to finalize a “believable” backstory about how Lucy died (Count Dracula), and that there are actual suspects at the “wake” (vampires, Victorian ghost ladies, Edgar Allan Poe inspired costumes, Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper, Dorian Gray, or any characters seen on Penny Dreadful).

    Plan on each room having different sub themes: one is the funeral parlor with Lucy’s open casket, another room filled with dozens of vampire bats, a Victorian creepy doll nursery room, a Tell Tale Heart room with beating heart sounds and heavy Poe focus, a Harry Houdini magic room, and a huge cemetery (twice th size of our normal front yard display) in our backyard (building new stones this year), a haunted library with nods to gothic horror,

    I’m BEYOND excited!

    We will be doing a 'Murder on the Orient Express' theme. Just starting to think of decorations and invites.
