Tricks & Treats With the Fam

Post by By Michelle Kohanzo, Managing Director of The Land of Nod
Neighborhood Trick or Treat Party

We have an awesome Halloween tradition in our neighborhood – each year a family hosts a post-trick or treat party.  I love this party, the kids are always in such fantastic moods – mostly due to a sugar high, and the grown-ups are really celebrating fall.  This year we are hosting at my house and I am decking the place out in Nod’s Halloween decor.  My kids love to decorate for a party, so they prepared some homemade decorations as well.  I cut-out a bunch of pumpkins and then set them loose with glitter and glue – such fun and such a beautiful mess.  I confess we’re already decorated for the party, even though there’s still a few weeks to go – you could say we’re pre-partying.  Happy Halloween!!!

Aside from being the Managing Director of The Land of Nod, mother to four kids (yes I said FOUR!) and a gourmet cook, Michelle is a retail junky. From Zara to Marc Jacobs, Target to Nordstroms, she doesn’t discriminate, there’s room in her heart and closet for them all. And the addiction doesn’t stop at fashion, she’s painted her dining room at least 5 times, and changes rugs like most women change their sheets. Retail isn’t therapy for Michelle, it’s more like oxygen.
