Pippa Middleton and her sister Kate Middleton–aka the Duchess of Cambridge–grew up with party-planning parents so they celebrated lots of holidays in high style. Halloween was a big deal in the Middleton family and both sisters have some rather spooky Halloween memories from their childhood.
According to a report from Entertainmentwise, Pippa used those memories with Kate as inspiration for her new party-planning book Celebrate.
“As a child, I felt that Halloween was a time when creatures of the night suddenly came to life–we would turn off all the lights in the house and let flickering candlelight conjure up scary shadows and imaginary figures lurking in dark corners,” Pippa explains.
Food played a big role, too.
“It was also a time for sugary treats–we feasted on creepy edible morsels, Halloween-themed chocolates and spookily named concoctions, which often looked better than they tasted,” she adds.
While it would certainly be interesting to know how the royals spend Halloween (do you think Kate Middleton gets to celebrate Halloween now that she’s a princess?) Pippa shares what she does on Halloween now that she’s all grown up.
“I frequently celebrate Halloween over a supper with friends. It’s a wonderful excuse to let your imagination run riot with gory-looking food and special effects,” she says.
Would you love to see an old photo from Kate and Pippa Middleton’s childhood of both girls dressed up for Halloween? What kind of costumes do you suppose they wore? Did either of them dress up like a princess?
