Spooky Sunday...Hallowe'en Prep!!

With Hallowe'en just over a week away, I thought I'd share with you some of the ways we've been preparing for it over here at Sparkles HQ!

Firstly, we've been deciding on what to wear.....

I have decided on this rather fetching Pumpkin t shirt from New Look.....



And Tyne has quite a selection to choose from.....he could be a baby Skeleton in this super cute suit from Home Bargains....



Or he could be Fraken-Tyne in this rather unusual and pretty cool outfit from F & F (£8.00)!



He also has the option of this gorgeous outfit sent to him as a gift from his lovely Uncle Derrick & Uncle Nick in the USA which I love...




Which do you prefer?!!!!


I also ordered him this gorgeous personalised Hallowe'en bib from Daisy Dribble Bibs who you can find on Facebook HERE...



As for decor, we were sent a fab array of goodies from Home Bargains to try out....




The Pumpkin Pinata (£5.99) will provide plenty of fun among the kids!!!



And the Glow in The Dark pitch fork makes a great prize for Hallowe'en party games!


All of these items and many more great party accessories are available from your local Home Bargains store.


And as for what to snack on......we LOVE these Pickled Onion Pom-Bear crisps  - a limited edition flavour for Hallowe'en!


As for story time, I'll certainly be reading The Worst Witch & The Wishing Star by Jill Murphy to my niece Amelie...she loves anything to do with witches and having read The Worst Witch stories when I was younger myself, I just KNOW that she'll love them!!



"The Worst Witch & The Wishing Star" is the first Worst Witch book in 6 years, and is a great way to introduce a whole new generation of readers to the series! The book is typically charming and hilarious, and the illustrations are as perfect an accompaniment as ever!

(The Worst Witch & The Wishing Star by Jilly Murphy is available for £9.99 from Penguin

For Hallowe'en itself, we'll be heading to Liverpool for the annual kiddies Hallowe'en party at my mums house. I can't wait for Tyne to experience it for the first time!

What are your plans this Hallowe'en?! As always, I'd love to hear from you!
