Decorations

 

Decorations for Halloween

 

A must-have for any Halloween party is decorations. Bats made from black card hanging from the ceiling or stuck to the wall are an easy and affordable idea which is a classic. 

 

Looking for something unusual, we have the ideal crafty task. How about making some monster shaped cutouts for the window

 

Sometimes the classics are all you need to throw the perfect party. 

 

Recipes

 

Baking Halloween treats on flour

 

Halloween is the ideal time to explore your fun side when creating your finger food buffet. Try experimenting with bold colours, or scary shapes.

 

Just because it is Halloween, doesn't mean you just need to eat sugar-filled sweet treats. How about hiding a bit of fruit under white chocolate for a mummified apple slice which is bound to impress the children and adults.

 

Alternatively, you can try a savoury treat, something a little different like Witch Guacamole from Confetti and Bliss
