Happy Halloween Party

With my mother in law still in the hospital last weekend, I decided to throw a Halloween party there to liven up the mood!  Japanese hospitals are extremely quiet and disheartening.  I believe that people heal faster with smiles, laughter, and a party so I did my little bit to help with the recovery process!

A Halloween corner with treats and treat alternatives:

The party completely transformed the room, and all of the nurses were shocked to walk into our little party.  We designed Halloween and Thank You cards and handed out candy to the nurses and doctors.  It was fun to share Halloween with people who have never experienced it before and who had the most to gain from a little impromptu party!

  1. That’s an incredibly nice thing to do! Wishedi was there to help! Bet your mother in law felt the love!! ;) did anyone try the costume bar,??

    • I wished you were here too.. and Daniel. All of my aerial decor keeps falling down. Haha I wonder why….? We played with the costume bar a lot and wandered the halls with all of our costumes on :) Everyone is camera shy though for me to post their pics here, and I was behind the camera so there’s no shots of me! lol
