Pippa Middleton’s got a new book out and it’s all about throwing perfect parties. (heatworld’s No. 1 tip: booze, lots of booze.)
In her new how-to guide, Celebrate, she also shares some memories from her own family parties, including how the Middleton family would enjoy Halloween.
“As a child, I felt that Halloween was a time when creatures of the night suddenly came to life,” she writes in an extract from Celebrate published in Parade magazine.
“[W]e would turn off all the lights in the house and let flickering candlelight conjure up scary shadows and imaginary figures lurking in dark corners.”
Er, yeah… sounds like a hoot.
As for how Pippa suggests her readers get in the Halloweeny mood now, she has a few spooky tips for us,
"Stir witchy cauldrons of pumpkin soup; hang homemade spiders inside window nooks; string cobwebs on tables; and haunt gardens, attics, and stairways with ghosts made from sheets."
Ghosts from sheets? Really…
What do you think of Pippa’s party planning tricks?
