In Essex, UK we were fortunate to have dry weather although it was quite chilly it certainly didn't freeze the spirits so to say....
We had a lot of larger groups visiting this year, no particular reason as to why, that I can think of.
Actually, I was expecting the numbers to be lower than usual because Halloween was during the school holiday period here, but if there was a drop in the number of children visiting it didn't seem to be apparent.
We estimated the number of children visiting this year to be around the 100 mark, which is not too far off the usual numbers that we see, sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less.
We had a lot of parents comment on the pumpkins again, and informed us that they had been in previous years and always enjoyed seeing the new designs and decorations etc.
Thanks as ever to Ryan for the fantastic site and designs, and also for his store that provides me with my annual Stick 'n Carve needs!
Thanks also to the contributions to the site, as there is so much inspiration here that paves the way to making our Halloween party a success!
I'll be getting orders in soon for some new carving tools and Stick 'n Carve to satisfy me for 2020, looks like 24 sheets is not going to be sufficient, so might just buy in bulk... lol
