Neighborhood Boo

Today I spent a bit of time browsing the Blonde Designs Blog, which is an adorable blog run by two former art directions of Martha Stewart Living, and Martha Stewart Weddings. Yeah, I know, I'm insanely jealous too....They now have their own invitation/paper goods company, Blonde Designs! Check them out here
Anyway, they posted an entry about a neighborhood traditional called "Booing your neighbors" which sounds like so much fun in a "Ding-Dong Ditch" kind of way. You basically drop these gift bags or baskets off for your neighbors, ring the doorbell and RUN before you're discovered. Quite a Halloween thrill for children and adults alike. 

Inside the bag, you include treats, candy, Halloween related items and also this ghost decal which the recipients are to put on their front doors. This is how you signify that your house has already been "Boo-ed" so to speak. And you also include this poem, which lets your neighbors know what to do next! It sounds like a lot of fun, and a nice way to get the community involved this Halloween.
