Halloween Party Inspiration

I love this time of year. We always have a wonderful October with friends, picking pumpkins, navigating our way through the maize maze and having a little Halloween party for the children. It’s such a fun time of year.

The children love to put up a few Halloween decorations and play games and watch a movie. We don’t do trick or treat as the children have never been keen and we live in a remote area anyway, so instead we hunt for sweets in the garden with their friends. They all dress up and I bring out my trusty witches hat and cauldron and it’s just lots of fun.

Halloween Parties

You don’t have to spend a fortune at Halloween to have a great time. You can make up games yourself, or download things for free online, such as Halloween Bingo – always a hit!

There are also plenty of stores selling cheap Halloween supplies which look amazing and if you take care of them, they will box up and last for many years to come. Each year I just purchase a few new bits and add to the collection.

I have to say that this year Poundland are absolutely KILLING IT when it comes to Halloween supplies. The prices are very reasonable and there is so much to choose from.

  1. Lots of good ideas for Halloween, thank you. Halloween sadly, wasn’t such a big thing when I was a child.
