Halloween is so much more popular now than it used to be with more suburban neighbourhoods joining in on this fun holiday and building community along the way. 

I've noticed a big increase in little trick-or-treaters heading out on my suburbs streets in search of sweet treats - Is it becoming more popular in your neighbourhood? If it is and you want to join in on the fun we've put together 5 EASY Halloween decoration, sweet treat & craft ideas (that aren't tacky!) below to thrill and delight your little ghosts, ghouls, monsters and tricksters!

1. Decorate

Add a little festive something to your front door, gate or letterbox to let those cutie trick-or-treaters know you're up for a little haunting fun!
Balloons are super easy and versatile - create a mini garland for your fence, tie them to your letter box or prop them at the front door.
Banners, paper fans and tassel garlands are also a favourite of ours because they have the added bonus of being able to be stored and used again next year!
