One of Martha's favorite holidays is Halloween. This sentiment is reflected in the elaborate decorations adorning the television studio in the weeks leading up to our Halloween shows. Here, we show you a behind-the-scenes look at our set decorations, spirited audience, and staff members who all contributed to making our Halloween shows truly spectacular.
Not all pumpkins are orange, nor are they necessarily destined to become leering jack-o'-lanterns. The designs used on these pumpkins, carved freehand, mimic the lacelike openwork of 18th-century pierced creamware dishes, and turn any pumpkin (especially a pale Lumina) into an intricately patterned lamp.
