Being a HUGE Halloween fan, I would have never thought that Martha could have any good ideas for Halloween decorating. Her decorating ideas are always so cute and cheerful, right?
How wrong I was! This book has wonderfully dark and gothic decorations that really capture the essence and magic of Halloween. Even the ideas for the kids are tasteful, without being overly cutesy.
Add to this great ideas for seasonal food (who knew you could use pumpkin in so many different ways), excellent costume ideas, and party ideas, and you have a great 'grown-up' Halloween decorating guide!
And for those reviewers here who complained that the book was only a collection of Martha's previous magazine articles: The title is "Halloween: The Best of Martha Stewart Living". The "Best of" title should have clued you in that this was not brand new material. I'm sure the audience for the book was people like me, who have never picked up Martha's magazine before. I know I buy every Halloween issue now, as well as other seasonal issues.

Here it is, the best of Martha Stewart Living Hallowe'en content through 2001! Everything is here, packaged so efficiently and beautifully that even die-hard Martha Mag collectors will want it. There are great crafts, recipes, and costume projects, but the real fun of this book is in simply looking through the pictures and informational bits.
Everything is so clever, and presented so creatively! Put it on your coffee table!

Halloween is a great time of year. I just discovered this book and I was really surprised. It was by Martha Stewart no less! This is not your run of the mill book! The ideas are fantastic and go beyond anything I ever imagined. This is not ordinary stuff here. There are ideas for the house and yard, food and candy and way out ways to make yourself up for the evening. This is a quality publication. There is still time to order!

OK, so Martha Stewart has become a little sketchy, but you can't deny that she has talent. This book has great ideas for decorating, entertaining, cooking, and costumes. We've had a lot of fun with it. (The man-toes and lady-fingers cookies are so funny!) It's great if you're on a tight budget--none of the crafts or recipes cost a lot to make.

This was a good book, I had planned on using it last year but didnt have to much time but I definitley will be using it this year! Halloween is my favorite holiday i take it pretty seriously. Remeber its says the best of martha stewart living, so that means that its ideas that have already been published in her magazines. I would reccomend also The big book of halloween, if you are looking for other books. Hope you all have a Happy Halloween 2002!

This book is what I expected: a compiliation of Halloween ideas from past issues of the MSL magazine. If you've saved October issues over the last several years, you may be disappointed that this book doesn't have anything new (but it's convenient to have all these ideas in one place). I'm glad I bought this book, as I subscribed to the mag. just two years ago.
Many of the crafts in this book require patience and skill, and really are for adults and older children. I've made simplified versions of the shadow lanterns -- my family's delighted with the results.
If you're looking for easier Halloween crafts and projects, there are many wonderful books on the market. My children particulary enjoy _The Halloween Book_ by Jane Bull (DK Publishing), a kid-friendly guide to preparing for the holiday.
