Halloween Party Ideas

It's not too early to start planning your Halloween party, so we've come up with a few ideas to help you along the way.

If you are thinking of holding a Halloween party at home, here are a few gruesome ways of setting the party scene:

Change all the lightbulbs for green bulbs (or make green lampshades) and cut out lots of spooky shapes in black paper to cover the windows - the effect from outside is amazing.  Alternatively, decorate with halloween spooky cutouts or pumpkin cutouts.

Make a fake grave in the garden with a hand covered in blood (red paint) coming out of the ground.  Make the hand by pouring plaster into a rubber glove.

Add red food dye to a water feature so it looks like blood bubbling up.

Today it be National Talk Like a Pirate Day , aaaaaaaaar!

Yes folks, Saturday 19th September is National Talk Like A Pirate Day 2009. If you're not sure how to talk like a pirate, then here's a few pointers:

What better way to celebrate NTLAPD (apart from talking like one of course - although I always end up sounding more like a Wurzle!) is to have a ......... yes,  you've guessed it......Pirate Party!

If  you DO happen to be throwing a pirate party any time soon, we have lots of pirate party bag goodies to keep the kids happy!  Aaaaaaaaaar!

Halloween Cotton Party Bags

I just love these special Halloween personalised cotton bags.  Made from unbleached cotton, they are environmentally friendly and long lasting.

They are perfect for Trick or Treaters and Halloween Parties.  Each bag has a menacing bat with red eyes, flying in front of a silver glittery moon. 

You  can have the bag personalised with a name, or choose from the list of possible messages from the dropdown menu.

You can see these personalised halloween party bags in our Halloween party products section.

Get ready for Halloween!

Our first orders for Halloween party products started coming in yesterday, so I thought it was about the right time to blog about them.

We have plenty of Trick or Treat themed cellophane bags - perfect for use as Halloween party bags, or for filling with Halloween treats.

This year we're also stocking room decorations such as hanging bats, hanging spiders, and Halloween banners.

As you'd expect, we also have filled Halloween party bags, and party bag fillers, and if you really want your Halloween party to stand out from the crowd, how about our personalised Halloween chocolate bars?
