I consider myself a Halloween fanatic. I love Halloween anything and everything to do with Halloween. 

I enjoyed this book I think it offers so many ideas for somebody who is trying to figure out how to do a DIY Halloween party with some step by step guides to help. Gives you several Ideas on themed party ideas to decorate for, even game ideas for each theme with costumes down to the simple invitations ideas. Everything you need to know with DIY directions on how do some of the Decor yourself. I think it’s a great idea for someone that doesn’t know how to go about doing crafty things and always wanted to try themself it’s all right here done for you. Some ideas on where to get some of the supplies best ideas for individual projects depending on what you’re going to use them for and includes some stencils for the pumpkins all in one book.

Also enjoyed the story on The Legend Of Jack-O’-Lantern. “It’s dark how will I find my way. Jack asked while munching on a turnip. The devil threw him a glowing coal which Jack placed in the turnip he had been eating. He became Jack of the Lantern, Doomed to wander the earth alone for eternity.”

I would definitely recommend this book for someone who was thinking about doing a Halloween party and didn’t know where to get started easy fun and breaks it all down for you I think you’ll really enjoy yourself.
