Sorry for any confusion. When I think ideas and concepts, I know even with planning we do evolve in our plans. And yes, once your decorations are up it is very easy to start assessing what you need for upcoming years. One budget friendly thing about Halloween is sales on Nov 1 being normally guaranteed even if stock is not.I don't have "some idea", I know exactly what I'm going to do. I planned it last year on Halloween night while the decor was up. I already know some of the things I'm going to do for next year but won't finalize it until the decorations are up.
