Enjoy Halloween on a budget with Poundland – Review
Halloween is a big favourite with children, who love to dress up in their scariest outfits to go trick or treating or to enjoy a spooky party with friends - but it can work out expensive for their parents! Fancy dressoutfits, party decorations, and trick or treat goodies can work out expensive, but pay a visit to Poundland and you can get everything you need for just £1 each! I was sent a small selection of their massive Halloween range and was really impressed with the quality of the items.
To make your home spooky enough for the scariest witch or monster, Poundland have a range of different decorations available. I loved this ghost which looks great hung on a door, either indoors or outdoors to welcome trick or treaters. There are loads of other decorations including pumpkin lights, skull tinsel and a fab sparkly black and purple cat. It’s a cheap, fun way of getting into the ‘spirit’ of things, and with a 6 items for £5 offer you can really go to town with your party decorations.
My quickly rustled up Halloween cupcakes!
To make some spooky cakes try this Cupcake Decoration Kit, which transforms the plainest cakes to some you’d be proud to have on the table at your Halloween party. This great little kit contains 24 patterned cake cases, 12 pumpkin decorations and 12 skull and crossbones decorations. Perfect for your little monsters to have some fun in the kitchen!
