I think Halloween may be my favorite holiday of the year. Halloween is big in Ireland — as it should be, it’s widely believed that it started here as the Celtic festival of Samhain — which roughly means “summer’s end”. Funny enough, I don’t tend to see a lot of Jack-o-Lanterns here but I’m hoping I might get a chance to do a bit of carving myself this year.
I always start with Martha Stewart for inspiration because the pumpkins she does Halloween decor like nobody else. I did get a handy little e-newsletter from HGTV this year with lots of great templates for Jack-o-Lantern designs as well.
And finally, wanted to share a photo Christiana took when we were in Boston together a few years ago — sometimes, the simplest ideas work best.
