Halloween Aesthetics: Festive Ways To Prepare For The Holiday

By: Katie Gray

                One of the best parts about the Fall season is Halloween! The leaves are changing colors, the weather is cooling down, and spooky decorations are everywhere. It’s the time to do some baking and treat yourself to candy. (An added bonus: It makes your home smell delicious.) There are all kinds of ways to spruce up your house, life activities and wardrobe – to enjoy this festive time of the year.  Drink lots of coffee – especially a pumpkin spiced latte. Go apple picking and pumpkin picking. Carve some pumpkins with a cool design, and then bake the pumpkin seeds in the oven for a treat. Go to a Halloween parade and/or party. Dress up as a fun character. Stock up on candy and definitely get a Halloween classic: candy corn. Of course, watch the 1993 Disney classic, Hocus Pocus – starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy. This is one of the most fun times of the whole year!
