Easy to roll onto walls these petrifying pictures will turn your guests into gibbering wrecks – especially by the time they’ve got past the garden and front door! Fantastic for Halloween parties either at home or school – who wouldn’t like to see these skeletal creatures plastered over the school hall? It’d certainly make school lunches much more interesting!
No party is complete without bunting and this Halloween bunting from The Cotton Bunting Company tops the list. Contrasting black and orange are the colours of Halloween and this bunting is fully washable and re-usable. It will look spookily spectacular when draped across a mantelpiece; on the walls of your party room or outside in the garden where it will stop all the vampire bats from flying into you – or will it….?
This black metal spider’s web lantern from John Lewis will make an impressive Halloween table centrepiece or why not put it in a window to act as a beacon for all the ghosts and ghouls out there? If you do put it onto the table make sure you turn out the lights to get some flicking, frightening shadows!
This super spooky cardboard haunted house from John Lewis is full of ghastly detail such as the witch stirring her cauldron, the vampire about to pounce, the tap dancing skeleton and the shivering ghosts – not to mention a few spiders and bats all safely contained within a strong cardboard haunted house that makes a super table centrepiece for kids Halloween parties. Best of all you can get the kids to arrange the pieces themselves!
This Beware of the Witch door sign from M & S is dead cheap and wickedly good! Hang it from their bedroom doors or even in the back of the car! In fact I should have one of these on my front door every day of the year… M&S also do some monstrous good costumes for both adults and kids with devilish discounts to boot.
This Witch Pinata from Party Pieces is far too cute to be scary surely? But that doesn’t stop kids beating her with sticks to get the sweeties out – well can you blame them? Spankingly good fun and a definite must for every Halloween party – even the adults would love to have a go at beating the Wicked Witch. Poor thing.
