Halloween Hunt

Today's idea comes from one of Love, Actually's followers, Lizzy. I appreciate her sending this in---it's such a creative idea and can easily be adapted to fit your needs....

She made "clues" for her husband in advance for this Halloween Hunt. While he was on the treadmill, she slipped the first clue under the door, which read:

Eye of the newt and heart of the bat
A pinch of this and a dab of that
In my witches cauldron
I have prepared a Shower for you,
Wash yourself clean, Then find your next clue!


Then while he was in the shower, she slipped another clue under the door, which said:

With monsters and ghoulish creatures galore…
Do you dare test this old folklore?
I invite you to a ghoulish romantic treat,
Meet me in the living room, *Claighton my sweet
*insert your husband's name

Mood Setters:
*Fire lit in the fireplace
*Black & orange candles all around living room
*carved and lit pumpkins around the room
*2 black-stemmed wine glasses
*Bottle of wine
*A big black bowl filled with kettle corn
*Black silk roses/baby's breathe from a craft store
*Halloweenish movies:"Interview with a vampire" "The Crow" "Goonies"
*Caramel Apples

She had to be quick in setting everything up so he wouldn't suspect anything going on prior to being on the treadmill.

She also gave him a card that said:

Trick or Treat: which will it be?
Come on over, and you will see
Whatever your bleeding heart desires tonight
Will be your wish and my ghoulish delight!

So, obviously...you may need to make a few changes...but this gives you the base you need! If you've done anything similiar or put your own spin on this version, please let me know by submitting your idea from the menu bar!

This is so fun. I love making up silly little rhymes to get the point across. This is such a fun way to incorporate the holiday have a romantic night together.

Krista Neil said...

This would be way fun, I like that the rhymes are understandable, my hubby doesn't get them if they aren't, lol :)

Cher said...

Yes, I agree. They are pretty obvious...with good reason! :) I know just what you mean.

Aww, thanks for posting my ideas Cher! I just did an awesome Italian night for my hubby. We're going to Italy in March, and went there for our honeymoon 4 years ago. On our anniversary, I turned our backyard into Italy - I made a gondola out of cardboard and spraypaint & decorated my hot tub area to make it look like Venice, and my patio to look like an Italian Bistro! I will post about it on my livejournal & send you the link :)
