Last night, Nicolas and I had plans to go to Tivoli to see all the Halloween decorations and activities. (I did a post on it last year that you can read here. It is quite spooky and magical!) We also planned on going out to dinner first. I wanted to be festive and play around with my makeup but still stay within the ‘wearable’ category, as it wasn’t a costume party or
Hello, everyone! Today is all about FALL! This season is such a happy time for me, and I’m sure many of you feel the same! Seeing the leaves change and eating everything pumpkin is pure bliss. I love pulling out all of my comfy sweaters and watching Halloween movies. For me, hygge and autumn go hand in hand. Hygge is a something special you feel and experience. I know it is quite a big trend in the U.S. right now, but here in Denmark, it is a way of life. You don’t have to
I absolutely love Halloween. I am pretty sure it stems from my mom’s obsession with this holiday. She always goes all out with decorating the house, burning Yankee spiced pumpkin candles, and making sure we always watch an absurd amount of Halloween movies. So when Nicolas proposed we go to Tivoli’s Halloween celebration, it was an obvious YES.
Tivoli, the world’s second oldest amusement park, is one of my absolute favorite places in Copenhagen. (Yes, Copenhagen is also home to the world’s oldest amusement park, too, if you remember one of my previous posts.) Tivoli’s atmosphere reminds me a little of Disney World’s but on a much cozier, intimate level. It is magical and charming, and unlike most theme parks, it appeals to those of all ages. The amusements take up only a small portion of the park. There are flower gardens, a theater, band stands, and countless cafes and restaurants, but I will revisit all that in another post. 🙂
I knew based on my past visit to Tivoli last summer that the Halloween festivities here would be nothing short of wonderful. I was right. Upon entering the park, I literally felt like I was in Halloweentown (only the best Disney Channel original movie ever). There was thousands of festive lights and jack-o-lanterns along with spooky music and treats everywhere you looked!
