Here at Mr. Bones we are so much more than just a pumpkin patch. Over the years we have truly become a family, which is quite a feat considering that we are a seasonal business. We have been so lucky to create bonds with our employees and customers so that both come back year after year! So every couple of weeks we are going to put the spotlight on one of our awesome employees to say THANKS and showcase each of their unique style’s!

First up is our administrative manager, Jennifer Lynne. Jennifer is hardworking, stylish, and LOVES Halloween (and seeing that her birthday was coming up this month we had to take this moment to celebrate Jenny!). When you come down to Mr. Bones this October you’ll be sure to see her running around so make sure you say hello!

Jennifer, 29, has worked at Mr. Bones & Mr. Greentrees since 2013. She is also a professional sword swallower, and has a degree in mortuary science! Here’s a little bit about her and how she celebrates the Fall season:

If not in L.A., where would you live? Maine, somewhere in the woods in an amazing little cabin.

My dream vacation would be to… Right now, I’d love to be in a spa in France… getting a massage and wearing lots of fall layers when I go outside.

My current obsessions are… Dorky Halloween t-shirts and vegan desserts.


If I could go back in time to one decade… I just finished season 2 of Aquarius, so I’d like to go back to the late ’60s and get involved in the scene, man.

As a teenager I was totally into… Weird, dark, creepy things. Not much has changed, but I dress better now.

The best thing about my job is… Meeting celebrities who are just as into Halloween as I am.

My favorite holiday is… Halloween! I’m an October baby, so my birthdays have always centered on Halloween. Getting presents AND candy AND costumes all at once is the best thing in the world.


My best Halloween memory is… I don’t know if I have just one! I loved trick or treating with my friends every year, especially once we were old enough to go without our parents. I grew up in the suburbs, so trick or treating was a very big deal. Roving gangs of costumed children everywhere. I definitely trick or treated well past the point when I should have stopped. I think I was 19 the last time I went, but I got away with it because I still looked 15.

I’m scared of… Ants. Seriously, they freak me out because they swarm. Also, zombies, for some reason. Not the fast zombies, but the original “Night of the Living Dead” Romero-style zombies. I love them, but they freak me out. Fast zombies aren’t nearly as creepy.

If I could be anything for Halloween, it would be… This year, I wish I could get Christina Ricci’s black-and-white striped dress from “Sleepy Hollow” and go as Katrina. Or just wear it to work. And everywhere in general. I want that dress.

My favorite Halloween costume ever is… I’ve always been happiest as a witch. It just feels right! I’m also super proud of the year I went as Jason Voorhees, because people kept telling me a girl couldn’t go as a slasher monster. I was supposed to be something pretty or cute, but I wanted to be an unkillable homicidal maniac. Fight the system!
