To welcome these kids I put out a few pumpkins, didn't have time to do anything fancy so I bought a few small pumpkins I considered interesting enough on their own (that green one I think is awesome!) and took a sharpie to the larger pumpkin as a centerpiece. It took literally two minutes and I was pleased as punch.
I also had some haunted portraits I hung in our big picture window for the spook factor, and after some fiddeling, figured out how to take our outside light off of motion sensing mode and stay on. ;)
Inside I had some fun as well. Here's a few picks of the Halloween fun in my kitchen, first off, cute Tommy watching me cook from his approved cat perch on top of the fridge.

|Bear Bottle Opener Mod Cloth|
|Cat food tin Superstore, Tea pot, toaster, colander, baking dishes all Home Outfitters, Tagine gift, wire basket Winners, Decorative Mugs Anthropologie|
I know, the wall mounted bottle opener isn't exactly Halloweeny, but it's my favorite part of the kitchen. ;p
In the dining room I left the main lights off to give the party some ambiance, and added a bunch of battery operated candles! The buffet became a drink station and I wrote some celebratory Halloween messages on the chalk board wall. ;)
