Halloween is approaching soon and I can remember from the past that some hosts in the community decorate their homes :-).
Even though we're spending Halloween at home this year, I am curious if you will decorate your home for the occasion? Also, feel free to share some photos if you have some!
Looking forward to seeing your decorations!
@Quincy, oh I love all the price reductions on chocolates & confectionery that come with Halloween, however they are not good for one's teeth though, or waistline!!
Would you be please be able to include the links to the previous Halloween photographs & contributions for all of us as some may not know how to locate them, others may enjoy getting ideas from them.
Do you decorate your home @Quincy for Halloween?
If so, do you have some photos?
What Does @Milky-Quincy-cat do to celebrate it?
Hi @Helen427, I know exactly what you mean about the snacks 😂
It has been a while since we did a Halloween topic, but here's the link to a topic that a host created back in 2017. I've also posted the decoration I had for Halloween decoration there🙂.
I think that I will keep it very simple this year by placing a pumpkin by the door. Milky will help me with carving it @Helen427 😉.
@Quincy This is the first year I haven't decorated my Airbnb spaces with festive fall/Halloween decorations. In year's past I have been out running around and would pick up fall favorites along the way (pumpkins, corn stalks, yellow/orange/red whatever.) But this year I haven't done much out and about. Which is nice (spent way less money, less stressful and hectic, etc.) but sad (no festive spirit and missing the old days) at the same time. 😐
Hi @Emilia42, I can imagine that right now given the current situation! We used to do pumpkin carving with a bunch of people from work, but sadly, not this year.
Let's try and stay positive and look towards the good things 2021 will hopefully bring us!
My last guests decorated for me, @Quincy . They lugged a large pumpkin a kilometre down the footpath and set it up on the treehouse porch. The things people do for Instagram. First I heard of it was a note at checkout saying they were leaving it so that hopefully the next guests will have lots of fun carving it.
Good grief. Can you imagine the mess? Anyway...no.
No, the next guests will not have lots of fun. The host did not have lots of fun lugging it back up the trail. The mice, squirrels, chipmunks and raccoons would have "carved" it before the next guests saw it. (My Halloween booking was cancelled by the system.)
But no harm was intended, of course. I thanked the guests and agreed that it was a fun idea. They don't have to know that I'm a cute-forest-animal spoilsport.
Or that I think a pumpkin pie is in order...
Oh dear, that's rather unexpected @Lawrene0!
That would have probably been an unpleasant sight for the next guests to see a half-eaten and possibly rotten pumpkin 😫
Also, do you still have the bronze bust of Franz Liszt in your garden?
The next guests would certainly have questioned my decorating choices!
No, @Quincy , he got too weathered and scary-looking so is now in the barn. I remember he is there now, so he's not so startling as he was when I first moved him there.
At Halloween 2020 they along with @Quincy shared their stories for a book on Halloween, now over to you @Branka-and-Silvia0 and CC readers, and illustrators @Sandra126 who if my memory is correct is creative in illustrating ....
Thanks for tagging and for a link to the topic created back in 2017 ... another era 🙂 🙂 https://community.withairbnb.com/t5/Hosting/A-question-for-all-Would-you-decorate-your-Airbnb-house-...
I have a good memory which is why tagged you 😆! Yes, I also wonder where they are @Branka-and-Silvia0! Hopefully, they are doing well.
Did anything happen during Halloween or was it a quiet one?
