Halloween Family Costumes: Gardeners and Garlic


All week we’ve been sharing family of three Halloween costumes on Say Yes and today is another great one: Gardeners and baby garlic from the harvest. What I love about this is that the adult costumes are a cinch to put together and the baby costume can be any fruit, vegetable, plant you want. Babies dressed as fruit and vegetables are some of my favorite costumes and this is a great way to incorporate it all into a group!  You could easily add other kids or do this as a group of friends as well for a fruit basket. A bunch of grapes with mini purple balloons, a red tomato with a big puffy red suit, yellow dress with a green hat as a pineapple, banana-man. So many ideas to make this one work for whatever group you have.


Thanks to our awesome team! Matt, Heather and baby May Mildenstein (aka, the cutest clove of garlic I’ve ever seen!) for modeling. Photography by Ashley Thalman. Styling by  Sarah Larsen and her assistant Stephanie Larsen. Produced by site manager Ashley Aikele with creative direction by myself, Liz Stanley.

Baby: handmade felt hat (from a costume a few years back) we added a felt ‘tip’, vintage white top plumped and rounded with stuffing, hand dyed green tights, freshly Picked moccasins (for a freshly picked baby garlic. ha!)


Woman: thrifted linen skirt, tee shirt, cardigan (H&M) rain boots, hat (F21)


Oh, this is SO adorable! I love family costumes (especially ones that allow grownups to wear clothes they would more or less already have) and this is one of the cutest I’ve seen!
