It's Beggar's Night in central Ohio. For as long as I can remember, unlike virtually every other city and town, we have "Beggar's Night" on a weekday if Halloween falls on a weekend. So bring on the trick-or-treaters!
I was inspired by the whole black and white thing this year. I follow ArtsyMama and she always has a black and white themed swap.
At first my husband didn't "get it" but when it all came together he really liked it! Later we will add a splash of orange when he and the boys carve a pumpkin or two.
