The NRF (National Retail Federation) anticipates that Halloween to reach $8.5 billion and says that the average person will spend $66.54 on Halloween related items. So far I have spent that along on candy because I buy it, eat it and buy it again…it’s never ending cycle right up till Halloween night when I would rather have treats for Halloweeners than get a trick from them lol!!!! Thats my excuse……and I am sticking to it.
The NRF breaks the $66.54 down like this:
Costumes $23.37 (according to the NRF will take up the largest portion of a person’s budget)
$3.95 Greeting Cards
I wish those figures applied to my household, and I only have 1 school age child, and the costume along is $60.00. Halloween is one of most favorite times to celebrate, enjoy my set created with polyvore. HAPPY HALLOWEEN SEASON!
Many people send a lot of time decorating the inside of their home and forget an area that makes a first impression on your home even if one does not come into your home. When I first purchased my home it was the one area that I was most excited about decorating (other than the kitchen). You can decorate the front door year round, based on activities of a specific month, or holidays.
After searching the web I found great photos that will surely give you a jolt of inspiration to decorate your front door.
Hosting a Halloween party is a great get together for children. School has been in for a couple of months, and your children have probably met new friends and are looking for fun weekend activities. When we first moved to the east coast a few years back we hosted a Halloween party for our children’s classmates and friends. We had just moved that September, we did not know anyone so it was a great opportunity to get to meet other parents and for the kids to get double use out of their Halloween costumes.
