Happy Halloween from The Crafty Gentleman

It’s finally here! Although a slight confession – I’m actually writing this post a few days early, because I know my Halloween weekend is gonna be a busy one… I’ve got a bunch of friends coming to stay with me for the weekend, and I’m throwing my traditional Halloween party – you know that one that I’ve been banging on about for the past month? Yep, that one!

At the time of writing, I’m just putting together the last minute preparations: giving my flat a good clean, putting up the decorations, prepping the food, practicing my face paint (needs to be done). It’s been a manic few weeks, but it’s all coming together now!

Here’s a sneak peek into how all looking… (spoiler: it’s messy).

I’m kicking off the celebrations this evening with my homemade Halloween cocktails and cocktail-themed party games (I think I’ve missed my calling as a party planner…), then we’ll see where the evening takes us. Whatever you’re up to this Halloween weekend, make it a good’un! Happy Halloween 🙂 – Mike.
