Halloween in the UK really splits opinion doesn’t it? Some people love it, and have lots of fun planning a children’s Halloween Party or trick or treating outfits, while others double lock their doors and turn off all the lights so they are not bothered for the evening.

I’m very much in the ‘lets embrace it and make it as fun as possible’ camp, making an effort to give the girls a great time and make memories that will last for years to come.

This year we planned a Children’s Halloween Party for the girls and their friends, so they could get into the spirit of Halloween without having to brave the cold as they are all still quite young.


Pinterest, as always, was my best friend in my children’s Halloween party planning. I think I have enough ideas on my Halloween Pinterest board to last the girls till they are 18 at least.

We decorated the house with spooky spiders webs and pumpkins and the girls put on their scariest (and cutest) costumes.

For entertainment I organised pass the parcel (it’s not a children’s party without it in my book) and musical spooky statues. However the most fun was had when I turned off the lights, gave them all a glow stick, and turned the music up for a Monster’s Disco.

Food is always my favorite part of planning and this children’s Halloween party was no exception. We had Witches Pasta (pasta twirls, passata, olives and sweetcorn), ghost sandwiches, nibbles (crisps, breadsticks, dips etc) and spooky cupcakes. Everyone cleared their plates which was all I could ask for.

Looking round the room, parents talking, children smiling and Scarlett announcing ‘This is my best day EVER’ I knew we had success. This children’s Halloween party would be one to remember. I was one very happy Mummy Witch.

Yes I dressed up…..turns out I am THAT mother, and do you know what? I love it.
