Trunk or Treat 2011: Campfires and rocket ships

I realized that I totally forgot to post about last year’s Trunk or Treat, which has become an annual tradition around these parts.  I’m gearing up for this years TOT decorations when I realized that I hadn’t even blogged about last years.  Slacker blogger I am.  So, allow me to play catch up for a second.


I love Trunk or Treat at Garrett’s preschool.  If you’ve never been to a Trunk or Treat, it’s so much fun!  All the parents come out and decorate their trunks and hand out goodies to the kids.  It’s a blast!


Last year Garrett was a rocket ship (big shocker, huh?)!  He spotted this costume on a shopping trip to Target with Daddy and it was love at first site.

Since I had this tent from his playroom handy and available I decided to have a stuffed animal camp-out complete with a crepe paper campfire and a rattlesnake coiled around the teepee poles.


The rock panels are a special touch courtesy of my company’s sample closet.

Notice the bags of Angie’s Kettle Corn in the dough bowl?


I gave that away to the bigger kids along with the candy.  Yep. Mom of the year here.


Although we did have some competition from the popcorn wielding clown a few cars down.


We even got Grandma to come and join in the festivities!


It was another great T-o-T under our belt.  Now, what to do for this year is the question.  It will be our last one at this preschool, so I have gotta step up my game!  I really want to go all out.  Think, Beth, think!

Speak Your Mind



  1. What fun! I love trunk or treating! Such cute costumes, too. And, thank you so much for visiting my Fall mantel (and thinking that “Leave no. 14” looks good. LOL

  2. Hi Beth! I’ve never heard of trunk or treats but it sure looks fun! What about making it like a mad scientist lab with some freaky potions and some the real treats to hand out??

    • That is a very cool idea, Heather! I like it! Garrett is dressing up as a pirate this year so I was toying with the idea of a haunted pirate ship, but if that doesn’t pan out bring on the glow sticks and the dry ice! 🙂

  3. I want to do a trunk! How fun is that?
