Hosting a Halloween party this year? Make sure it’s a spooky shindig to remember with devilish decorations and frighteningly good food that your guests will love!
Words by Claire Crehan
Whether it’s a ghostly get-together for the little trick-or-treaters, or a scary yet sophisticated affair for the grownups, Halloween is a time to go all-out with the decorations, theme and food.
Set the scene for your gruesome guests from the moment they walk through the door by creating an eerie atmosphere with low lighting and spooky music. We love decorative string lights for an easy and affordable way to create moodily lit corners and draw attention to scary centrepieces!
Add some creepy yet fun touches with faux cobwebs and hanging decorations, and don’t forget the all-important pumpkins! Whether you try your hand at carving, or stick with the easier option of painting on a design, a Halloween party just isn’t complete without a few pumpkins dotted here and there!
When it comes to the food, the creepier the better! Here’s where you can really have some fun and serve up a terrifyingly tasty feast that your guests will love. Marks and Spencer have some great options in their Halloween range, with everything from cyclops inspired mini pizzas to meaty bacon wrapped mummies! And don’t forget to pick out some equally spooky plates and table settings – the devil is in the detail, after all!
