Create a Halloween Invitation

Halloween will be here in just over a week. As it falls on a Saturday this year,  it makes it much easier to take full advantage of the celebration.

Typically, Mom and Dad rush home from work and shovel in supper. The kids are transformed into superheros,  fairytale characters and spooky creatures.  After they spend a few hours begging goodies from the neighbours, the candy is sorted, the sugar influx monitored and it's off to bed. 

On a Saturday, however, there can be parties too. For young and old.

I  remember being invited to my first adult Halloween party. I was in my 30s and thought that donning a costume, something I hadn't done for probably 15 years, seemed like a lot of fun. Trying to get my husband to agree, however, proved to be a bigger challenge than determining what I was going to wear. 

I did manage to convince him and our last-minute scrambling had us attending as a bobbysoxer and greaser — me in a poodle skirt and saddle shoes, him in denim, leather and Brylcream.   Turned out that adopting a new persona was as much fun then as it was as a child.

There is a freedom to being 'in character' that eclipsed my natural shyness.  So much so, that I have taken advantage of the opportunity to dress up many times in the years since.  I suppose it could be argued that at this age I should be past such nonsense, but my reticence remains and I still rather welcome the chance to become someone else.

Saturday, Oct. 31 will be a good time then for people to channel an inner Superman, to remember the glory days of the 60s or to show they've still got it in a sultry witch's costume.  And whether you are young or young at heart, parties are a perfect way to extend the fun.

Set the perfect tone by creating  your own Halloween invitations using these helpful tutorials:
