Halloween Party Prep – The good the bad and the frightful!

27 Oct

There is a lot of tat out there on the shelves for this Halloween. Parties are getting bigger and better, we have more and more americanized with our love of the holiday! i thought that I would share with you some of the best products out there this year, to avoid disappointment!

Zombie Gnome

The Zombie Gnome is one of my absolute favourites this year, a must have for on the lawn or table at a halloween themed party. it is as hilarious as it is genius, and at £11.95 from Genie Gadget it will not break the bank either. At 30 cm tall and very sturdy I think I will keep mine out all year!

Grr!

Verdict: 10 / 10
DIY Halloween

I love the mouldable glue range from Sugru – perfect for any Halloween projects. It’s bendy, rubbery texture makes it a versatile material and once it cures for 24 hours it is really strong too.

Verdict: 8 / 10
Zippo

Get those pumpkins lit with these funky lighters from Zippo. I love the Halloween designs, and with such an ageless brand you know that these lighters will last a long time. Prices start from £20 and they are available at www.zippo.co.uk

Halloween Make up

If you are on a budget, don’t buy separate pots of face paint this Halloween look for an all in one kit. Asda have a great range this year, I love the skelaton kit for £3. I actually used this and some old green eyeshadow that I had lying around to make my wicked witch face this year!

Verdict: 8 / 10

Bake your own treats

Shop bought is easy, but nothing beats home-made treats. Use these cute/spooky (delete as appropriate) but certainly delicious cake decorations from Cake Angels and really impress your guests.
