I’m getting really excited now Halloween is only just around the corner, particularly as the boys are on half term now so we can prepare together. I’m planing a bit of spooky baking and we have some little pumpkin craft kits to keep the boys amused too.
Today though, I abandoned my own blog and headed over to guest post for Matalan as part of their #HalloweenTips series. You may remember the fab twitter party some bloggers (Becky, Mari, Carolin & Helen) and I co-hosted with them a few weeks ago. Well since then we’ve done a series of guest posts for them on topics like costumes, food, party games etc and today was my turn.
You can find me over here sharing some tips on decorating for Halloween, covering everything from bargain hunting to toddler friendly pumpkin carving. If you’re looking for inspiration you’ll also currently find some of my favourite Halloween posts from my archives over on the left so do give a wreath a go or see if you can knock up some Witches Fingers and let me know how you get on.
Don’t forget it’s not too late to join in with our October Instagram Challenge and try and snap pictures to go with all our Halloween related words. Click over to the original post for all the details or check out #InstaHuntOct on Instagram to see what everyone has snapped so far. I’ve been rather hampered by having my phone stolen last week but I’ve been promised faithfully that my new on is on it’s way so fingers crossed I can catch up.
