38 Days Til Halloween!

Here in London, Halloween displays are few and far between this time of the year. But in California, where I spent last week, they’re already everywhere.

LA seems particularly fond of the holiday, and most shops have at least a few seasonal items. I bought orange-tinted cocoa from Crate & Barrel, pumpkin pasta sauce from Williams Sonoma, coffin-shaped soap from Bath & Body Works, there are Halloween tshirts at Target, etc.

Here’s a few Halloween highlights from the trip…

The best seasonal display was in San Francisco, at Seasons on Pier 39:

Bath and Body Works also has a great selection. This one is at The Grove, LA:

I also loved these decorations in a shop on the Main Street of Disneyland, where all the decorations and most of the merchandising were already out, before the official start of the season:

Last thing I bought was an annual must-have: the Martha Stewart Halloween special. Even if you don’t cook, bake or sew (which I don’t), it’s always filled with creative ideas and beautiful seasonal photos.
