It's Halloween and time for some crazy pumpkin carving! This year, Jakob and I attempted a Harry Potter pumpkin, and even though it turned out to be more Harry Potter's retarded son (Albus? evil tongues may suggest), we are truly proud and enjoy our Harry Halloween. We got the template online and opted for two more traditional pumpkins (or could it be Ron and Hermione? Discuss. ;-))
Welcome your guests with a spooky pumpkin outside your door. I've always refrained from putting a pumpkin out because we don't have a house, but live in a flat. However, this year, I wanted to go ahead with it anyway. Because it is still indoors, I didn't want to use real candles and be blamed to burn down the house, so I went to Depot and bought LED candles that flicker. For only €1.60 per two candles, they look spookily real and save you from fearing to burn to death.
Pumpkins like the Potter pumpkin are inasmuch great because they do not only make for great Halloween decorations, but also for autumn vibes. Orange and red are a fantastic autumn combination that make a room infinitely cosier and prepare for the Christmas season - you just have to swap orange for green, actually.
