Ok, so this date night is perfect for Halloween and October, but it would be fun to do anytime of the year too. If you don’t have time to pull it off this Halloween, save it for later. And, the intensity of this date is all up to you. You can go super easy or go all out, the important thing is to spend some quality time with your Honey.
Most of the prep for this date will be from decor and food. Decor can set the mood. Make a trip to your local Dollar Tree and hit up the Halloween aisle. Grab some crawly spiders, caution tape, spider webs, and anything else you think will help spookify (yes, I just said that).
You’ll want to print out the Dead and Breakfast Inn welcome sign and display it somewhere obvious. I made it pretty big (like 16×20”), so if you want to print it out like a poster and piece it together you can. Blockposters.com makes it super easy. Just save, upload and print it. (I have no affiliation with Block Posters, I just like how easy it is to use and the results are great. And it’s FREE.) Put this up on the front door or paste it to a piece of foam board and hang it outside or from the kitchen doorway. Wherever works the best for your home. It would be fun to cut it out, paste it to some foam board and hang it on a little faux chain.
Next, get your decor put up. You don’t need to go super elaborate (unless you want to), but pull out some candles, hang some spider webs, dim the lights and put the caution tape out.
Now, the food. You can grab take out and spookify it (yep, there it is again) for a quick and easy night. For example, grab some Chinese food, serve it right out of the cartons and slap these labels on the boxes. Bam! Easy, right?!
Or… get creative and make some creepy food. There are a ton of ideas out there. Some of my faves (from my pinterest board). Please be respectful and click over to the original source to pin. Thanks!
