Six weeks from now I will be getting
our gift shop ready for the Halloween season.
I am so excited this year!
Started planning my theme out
hard and heavy after Christmas last year.
us to Disneyworld.
Gramma B went with us too!
My fondest memory of the park
was the haunted mansion.
I loved it!
Plus at the end of the ride,
we had a hitchhiker.
A ghost appeared in between
my gramma and I in the car.
We both were laughing so hard.
It was so much fun!
Now I could NEVER re-create
Disney's haunted mansion,
but what I do plan on doing is creating
my version of a haunted hotel.
One of the ghostly temporary resident
of my upcoming haunted hotel.
Bob already made the concierge
counter from wood.
An animated butler will be behind it.
My haunted hotel room will be full
of ghosts and skeletons.
I will also have a Dead End Buffet.
I plan on creating a sign that reads~
All you can eat today.
Rest in peace by morning.
Prepared by Chef Cy-O-Nide
Since everything in my haunted hotel
is dead, I just had to make these dead flowers.
Created from black suiting material
and wooly worms for leaves.
I found these tan wired stems at the local craft store.
That's where the idea came for these flowers.
For my buffet I have created lots
and lots of cookies.
Here is one I call "Bones".
Every haunted hotel has to have some cobwebs,
don't you think.
Now this one has yet to be blocked and starched,
so its a bit wonky.
But once finished,
will be a perfect candle mat for Halloween.
The colors this year will be purple and red.
I cannot WAIT to get the room decorated.
The countdown begins for me.
It will take me a week, so am taking vacation days.
The front of the store will have harvest and witches,
so a little bit for everyone.
Haunted Hotel Blessings To All!
