I love this time of the year, I love the weather, the beautiful landscape and of course, Halloween! It’s the little mans first Halloween this year so I’ve gone a little wild with fancy dress outfits for him and bought some Halloween decorative items for the house, oh and not to forget the pumpkins! I wanted to keep Halloween fun for the little man, clearly anything too scary was going to be no good for a baby.
I thought I’d share some of the things we’ve done for Halloween so far.
We went for a little jaunt to the local woods the other day to get some fun Halloween photos using some of his fancy dress outfits.
Sainsburys had some fab pumpkins in this year. I bought one big one and then three of their ‘munchkins’ which are super cute tiny pumpkins!
This year we had some help with the pumpkin carving in the form of OXO Good Grips fruit scoop set*. The double scoop set is perfect for hollowing out your pumpkin!
The scoops are really tough with edges sharp enough to scoop out the flesh of your pumpkin. As well as being perfect for pumpkins the larger of the scoops is ideal for using with watermelon and mangos while the smaller of the two can be used for kiwis or even baked potatoes. The scoops get between the skin and fruit so nothing is wasted, they’re much easier to use and more effective than a spoon.
You can pick up the set of two for £10 at House of Fraser and they come with a lifetime guarantee! OXO clearly have faith in their product.
I picked up these fab little bits from the Poundshop!
I think they are complete bargains at £1 each. The tea light holders are really good quality and look great when the living room is dark.
I might have also accidentally bought myself a Yankee candle to celebrate the occasion, I told my hubby it’s fine though, it’s only a small one!
