A Halloween Party With Poundworld!

A Halloween party at the beginning of October might seem a bit strange, but heck it was fun! We were given a budget by Poundworld to buy all the necessary equipment and some food and drink to keep our guests happy....well, happy in a Halloween way....


The fun started way before the party - which child wouldn't want to be able to choose a whole £30 worth of goodies from the Halloween aisle in Poundworld! You simply can't carry it all!


The boys had a brilliant time choosing, and we could really go a bit wild. Best half hour I've spent in ages. Holographic glasses were first in the basket, followed by a rubber hand...naturally...


We didn't forget sweets for Trick Or Treaters, and there are loads to choose from. I was actually stunned to see proper masks and costumes for £1 each too - as well as plenty of finishing touches and accessories.


Star of the entire shop wasn't actually from the Halloween aisle - my 6 year old saw a yellow Emoji Cushion in Blackpool and has wanted one since. He had his choice of cushions in Poundworld and it's been his constant companion ever since...


Our basket and arms full, when we got it home our shopping covered the entire coffee table. It wasn't entirely all Halloween. I was delighted to see Poundworld sold Frisps, (totally the best crisp ever in my book) and I also grabbed my 16 year old student daughter some great highlighters. I'll be going into Poundworld more often, they seem to sell pretty much everything in there...


...including the most hilarious thing we saw....my 8 year old spotted this coloured hairspray himself, and the joke was all his own...


Decorating for our party consisted mainly of cobwebs, loads of reusable window stickers, Halloween mood lighting, balloons, bunting and silly string! Who doesn't love Silly String? None of the children had seen it before, so we may have surprised them a little...

 

Please excuse the Minion onesie. It was his birthday the day before and it was a present...We had curry for our Halloween Party tea, but a better choice would definitely be 'Guts and Brains', or spaghetti and meatballs as it's usually known. Dessert though was definitely 100% Halloween...


Everything you see on the table was £1 each from Poundworld - packs of plates and bowls, sweets and balloons. The mugs and glasses, the serving bowl, the tablecloth and even the straw (box of 100). The light-up beakers were even 'buy 2 get 1 free'...


We had Eyeball Jelly, Jam Tarts, Skull Lollipops and my favourite Halloween food - Revolting Rotten Halloween Cupcakes.


Ridiculously I forgot to use the Halloween Cupcake Party Packs I bought, but they'll keep for actual Halloween...


My favourite buy of the day was this pack of 2 Projector Torches with 4 different symbols. And paired with the light up beakers....perfect.



Loads of fun and we still have plenty of glowsticks, battery life and sweets left for Halloween itself...
