Celebrating Halloween Abroad! (Switzerland)

I never cared much about Halloween until I moved abroad, and every October I would get really sad that Halloween was missing. So I decided to take it into my own hands, and I do it big every year! I throw not one, but TWO Halloween parties every year. I realize I'm insane, but I look forward to it all year! 

The first party I throw each year is a simple costume party. We get together with a bunch of friends, each treats, and play games. 

If you know me at all, then you'll know that I get reeeeally excited about decor. I'll take any excuse to put together some kind of themed decor.

 Here is the Instagram live stream that I did right before the party, showing all of the decor and where I got it/how I made it. 

The party was so much fun! We played "Werewolf" and a bunch of other spooky games, then I made everyone stand in front of my beloved blue wall while I took pictures of them. ;)

THEN, every year I throw a murder mystery party! This takes so much preparation, but it's so worth it! The theme I chose this year is the Big Top Circus. First, let's go over the best part...the decor! I'm obsessed with the pumpkins that I painted to match the red and white theme!

Here's my live stream showing you around all of the decor that we made. We made a room into a circus tent!

The story line of the evening went to well. My favorite place to buy my murder mystery kits is nightofmystery.com
