The Tim Burton animated classic, ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ was the inspiration for our family’s most recent movie night. It is the perfect Halloween family movie, not so scary for the kids, and very entertaining for the grown ups.
We used a simple black tablecloth and some of our Halloween decorations to dress the table. Battery operated candles set the mood for our spooky meal. In addition, Bella drew some pictures of the characters to use for the background.
