You take one last glance around the room to check that everything is in its proper place. The pumpkin shaped bowl by the door is filled to the brim with all sorts of delicious candy, a welcome snack for your guests. Black and orange streamers have been carefully placed wall to wall, the lights on the crystal chandelier have been dimmed, the flames on the black vampire candles are flickering in the dark, and the main centerpiece, a spooky carved jack-o-lantern which is now lit, is giving the room an eerie effect. The festive tablecloth has been dusted with ghost confetti, and the crackling fireplace is roaring, giving the room some light and warmth. Your vampire's coffin, witch's broom, and bubbling cauldron are strategically placed around the room to give it the finishing touch to resemble a haunted mansion. The background Halloween music has been turned on low, with sounds of ghostly moans, cackling witches are drifting through the room. You are now ready for your guests to arrive.
