“When we’re together, darling, every night is Halloween”
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. All Hallows Eve. Black is in abundance, the shops are covered in cobweb and everything is just that little bit spookier. I definitely look forward to October 31st more so than Christmas.
Every year I have to restrain myself from buying all of the decorations and keeping them up year round. So instead of turning my house into something from The Nightmare Before Christmas, I thought I’d put together a blog showcasing some of the cutest and spooky Halloween decks that you can get for you house and Halloween party. And who knows; perhaps you’ll love them enough to keep them up year round?
Creepy Cobweb Serving Dishes
These tri-colour spider web serving dishes* could easily become part of the “guest china”. Why use paper plates and bog standard bowls when you can buy some Halloween themed crockery? You can get tbese for a very reasonable price from Aldi.
Why not put some sweets in to dish out to any trick or treaters?
Spooky Scented Candles
Candle light should be the only light on Halloween night. This delicious smelling patchouli Witches’ Brew candle* encapsulates autumnal smells and will spread a sweet aroma around the house. Available from Yankee, I love the witchy design and the scent lingers long after blowing it out.
These candles are from PartyLite and we’ve enjoyed lighting these around the house for the past month. The wax is in black and white so they’re perfect for a Halloween party – or to add to Gothic decor in a room. They’re from PartyLite’s Forbidden Fantasy Luxury Collection* with six combinations of decadent scents including:
- Magnolia and jasmine forms a deep, lasting bond with black plums and currants.
- Dark chocolate and cocoa bean captivate with a squeeze of sweet orange liqueur.
- Blackberries and black currants wrapped in the warm embrace of spice, cedarwood and tobacco
- white grapefruit and violet meets the lustful allure of musk and rosewood
- White florals with rich fruits and musk
- light florals with warming amber and sandalwood
All six smell good enough to eat.
These candles are so exclusive that you can only get hold of them through Independent Consultants. But if you don’t know your local consultant, you can search by postcode on the website to locate your nearest representative.
Cute Ghostly Bunting
This Halloween garland* so fun to put together. Everything from the card to the string is all provided so all you need is a pair of scissors to assemble it. Simply pop out the ghoul, cat, bat and pumpkin, tie them to the length and drape them for all to admire.
You can purchase these from My Little Day as part of a Halloween Birthday Kit. There’s so much more cute and amazing stuff on their site. You’ll probably lose a couple of hours looking through all of their stationary and decorations as you’ll never have seen anything like their products before – I warned you first.
I love this silly skeleton. It’s a DJ skeleton* which plays a mix of the Munsters’ theme tune and other spooky sounds. And you get purchase this from everyone’s favourite budget supermarket….Aldi! It’s really well made and takes AA batteries. It’s something you can keep and bring out again again each year. Only £7.99 from any Aldi store.
Terrifying Wall Art
These artistic pieces of wall art are available to buy from Not on the High Street. The cute bow tie skeleton is something you can have fun assembling and the wall bats can be stuck anywhere in any formation allowing you to create your own wall display.
Moderately scary masks (more cute than fear inducing!)
Really cute and simple masks* from my new favorite store, My Little Day. If you’re not enthused by Halloween these bat masks are the perfect accessory for any fancy dress. And they’re great to hand out at parties. There’s eight in a pack.
Are you going to any Halloween parties? Have you made your own decorations?
