We are planning on doing a church thing on halloween instead of going out trick or treating.  They are doing *trunk or treat* and my husband wants to do this.  So we have to come up with a theme for our car..and theme it out.  Nothing scary allowed.  He was thinking fairies, tinkerbell stuff of course..but when we went hunting for stuff..couldnt find much we could use.  so now its onto another idea..but I am out lol.  anyone?

 You could do harvest, and get hay, un-carved pumpkins & gourds, indian corn etc.

A disco theme, with a disco ball hanging from the trunk lid. Line the inside with remnent fabrics in sequin, or bold prints and maybe a lava lamp?

That makes sense!  What about some kind of color/floral theme?  You could get a solid pink, purple, red, blue, yellow tablecloth, and balloons, streamers, etc. to match...or fake flowers...
