Everything You Need This Halloween


Halloween. It seems to be a time of the year the everyone loves (apart from Christmas of course). It's the time when ghosts are celebrated, spiders are accepted, clowns are popular and carving faces into pumpkins is the norm. Whether you're having a cosy night in watching horror movies or are going to a Halloween party, I've got you covered with the ultimate Halloween wish list. Light a Halloween candle or hang up some pumpkin lanterns for a simple touch, or go full-out with balloon bunting, skeleton mugs and a spooky outfit.

3 Simple Ideas For Halloween Parties on a Budget:

1. Make Hocus Pocus Punch

Making a spooky punch for guests is both fun and a great touch - and means you don't have to supply tons of beer, wine etc. The recipe is super easy to make and all you need is some vodka, pomegranate juice, orange juice and a dash of tobasco. Simply pour 1.5 oz of orange juice into a tall glass and then shake the rest of the ingredients together before laying over the top of the orange juice. Garnish with orange peel and spooky straws!

2. Use Clementines as Table Decorations 

Get a bag of clementines and a black felt tip pen and simply draw some spooky faces onto the unpeeled clementines. Dot them around your house - on the buffet table, on the banister and in the toilet. They make cute yet spooky little decorations and are super easy to make.


3. Use Old Wine Bottles as Decoration

A great way to recycle old wine bottles is to save them until Halloween and then put them on the tables and windowsills in your house. Simply wedge a tall white candle into the top of the bottle and, once lit, the wax will drip down and dry. They should look like old candles from haunted houses!

  16. I think these ideas are great for those who love Halloween, I'm not a fan myself as I believe it to commercialised. I prefer to celebrate the Mexican tradition of Days of the Dead.
