I just walked back from visiting with the Marketing dudes (a few flakes were falling from the sky!) and I am super-excited for Halloween. Doug, our new graphic designer, created this poster to advertise our annual Halloween party at the Snow Barn.
This poster is fantastic, especially if you take a close look…think I Spy. And see if you can find the mistake….think backwards. Of course, I couldn’t find the mistake. Someone had to point it out to me. What’s not a mistake? Figuring out a costume and attending the Snow Barn Halloween party, which has become “the” pre-winter social extravaganza. I use the word extravaganza because people go all out and come in some outrageous and hilarious costumes.
This year A Band Beyond Description, will be rocking the Snow Barn. Like them on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/aBandBeyondDescription They are from Maine (they must be good, right dad?) and play Grateful Dead covers (double good!) I really should get dressed up and stay out beyond my bedtime!
I have been getting ready for Halloween all month. I have already watched dozens of thrillers and I got sucked into Pinterest the other night searching all the DIY ideas on how to turn my house into a scene out of a horror movie.
I have several big plastic tubs of costumes and props from past years so I will probably dig them all out this weekend and start decorating. Do I get any trick-or-treaters? Nope, not a one. Do I do it for my kids? Nope, my daughter is off at college and my son started taking off his costumes as soon as he could walk. Do I do it to amuse my husband? If you know my husband you know that is a big fat NO. I may invite some friends over for dinner, but I guess I am okay with getting all spooky purely for my own enjoyment. And hey, I might as well have some fun with a holiday before we enter the busy winter season.
I could use some ideas for a costume. The good thing about my husband is that he will get dressed up for Halloween, especially if there is a good band in the deal. So a husband/wife idea could work. Do I have any kindred Halloween enthusiasts out there? Let me know if you are going to the Snow Barn – free cover if you wear a costume!
