Halloween 2016 with Poundland.

Thursday, 27 October 2016

Every year at this time, we hit the local Poundland for the Halloween party essentials. Of course now you can use the website too and have it delivered to your door like I did.
 
I started with the essentials like plates, bowls, napkins and tablecloth - I LOVE the print this year. I also picked up some matching cupcake cases and decorations and a fab collapsible cardboard cupcake stand too!
 
Next some treats, Liv chose some toffee Ghostbuster popcorn and I selected 2 bags of Swizzels sweets and lollies for the trick or treaters.


 With those party essentials sorted I could move on to the fun bits - DECORATIONS!

There were so many great ideas I really was struggling to stay within budget.

Below Left - "Danger Zombies" sign and Zombie zone, Beware and Crime scene tape, perfect for doors, porches or furniture.
 
Right - this spooky ceramic skull tea light holder is very effective (candle not included)
 

 
This large pose-able spider (below) is Livs favourite. The legs are wired so you can easily hang it from things to scare people! It's even hairy to touch - yuck!
 
 
This light up black glitter owl is my favourite! It comes with batteries so all you need to do is switch it on and you are off to go.
 
 

Halloween just wouldn't be the same without some terrible face painting efforts from your Mother, so dutifully I bought some to try and some  cleansing face wipes  (2 for £1) to easily remove it with afterwards.

 
Now I know this whisk and piping bag aren't exactly Halloween, but I do need them to make my Halloween cupcakes so that's okay isn't it?!
