Whether you’re planning a big Hammer Horror fest or just adding few tasteful touches around the home, getting creative at Halloween is always fun (plus the kids love it).
Here are six ideas to get you started:
These look beautifully autumnal all season. I like them bunched together and hung from the front door, or you can string them up around picture frames or a mantlepiece. Just make sure no one takes a bite – they’re not edible!
Eerie black roses make a fantastic centrepiece for a Halloween dinner party, and they’ve given me a few costume ideas too (Bride of Frankenstein maybe?)
Order these for a day or two beforehand to give them time to open fully.
I love the way these are wrapped – particularly the spiders – and they’re sure to please the trick-or-treaters. You could dole these out from a hollowed and decorated pumpkin.
Alternatively, cut out the sugary treats and go for fun little toys instead. Choose from stickers, disguises, games and more.
Go for non-Halloween costumes that will do for parties and playtime all year round – the Melissa and Doug outfits are great quality. Use face paint to add a spooky element, like ghost or Jack o’ Lantern faces.
Finally, no Halloween is complete without pumpkins – but it’s good to mix things up a bit. For a really pretty (and pretty spooky) display, I group a few pumpkins of different varieties and sizes.
Have a fiendishly spooky night…
