Halloween Essentials!

We have been going a bit Halloween crazy here lately and Elliot and I are itching to start decorating our house for the Halloween parties we are having in the half term break. There are so many spooky things to buy in the shops and I've really had to stop buying everything I see! 

If you're throwing a party this Halloween, here's some of our fave essentials we have spotted on our travels: 

1. Spider Cookies made with Skippy* peanut butter - these would make a fab addition to any Halloween spread and certainly look a lot tastier than a real spider! For the recipe, please see here
2. LED Candlesticks (£17.96) - These spooky skull candlesticks would look great on a mantlepiece but the great thing is the candles are LED so much much safer than regular candles.
3. Rust-oleum Glow in the Dark Spray Paint* - If you're feeling creative, you could make some really spooky things with this spray paint. I quite like the idea of spray painting some fake bones for Halloween so they glow up at our party! Looking out for a spooky craft based post coming very very soon featuring several different spray paints from Rust-oleum.
4. Halloween at Asda - The supermarket Halloween ranges seem to just get better and better and this year Asda have pulled out all the stops with their fancy dress costumes
5. Aldi Prisoner in Cage* (£8.99) - This is one of my favourite Halloween things we have this year and I can't wait to scare our friends at our parties! The skeleton prisoner looks perfectly normal sat in his cage but then when you press the button, he opens the bars and his head pops out! He says several different phrases and his eyes flash red - spooky!
6. Halloween inspired dyes from Dylon* - Dylon have created a colour wheel featuring lots of vivid spooky colours such as Velvet Black and Emerald Green - perfect if you prefer to make your own costumes. We are testing out some of these colours (right now in my washing machine!) so I'll be posting about these in the lead up to Halloween.
7. Ghost & Bat Cheesy Snacks from Poundland - I love Poundland for picking up snacks and treats for parties and I will definitely be getting some of these for our parties
8. Aldi Twisting Skeleton* (£7.99) - Aldi have such a brilliant range of Halloween items this year and this one is another cracker! Press the skeleton's foot and he dances to "Let's Twist Again!". This song has been stuck in my head since we got this because Elliot likes to set him off at least 5 times a day....let's twist we did last Summer....!
9. Horror Pops from Original Candy Co Ltd* - Halloween and sweets go hand in hand and these detailed lollies would go down a treat with Trick or Treaters. Choose from three designs including skull head, skeleton and spider.

Do you celebrate Halloween?
