Having a Halloween party? You need some suitably terrifying table ware! Well ok this “Boo” table set is more sweet than scary but it certainly will bring a haunting feel to your table. The set includes cups, paper plates, napkins and a table cloth. You can buy them separately so you don’t have to get the lot if you are feeling a bit poor.
If you’re planning to have a bowl of sweets or crisps on your table why not grab the funky pumpkin bowl while you are shopping or go all out by scattering pumpkin confetti on the table. Halloween only comes round once a year so go mad!!

Carving pumpkins at Halloween is great fun and really easy to do. To make a really creative and original pumpkin you don’t have to stick to the traditional triangle eyes and jaggardy teeth design. If you are decorating your home for a party and are going to use a number of lanterns its best to have a completely different design on each one. This is where this cute little Pumpkin Art kit comes in handy. It contains a book of different design ideas for making pumpkin lanterns. Patterns range from pretty stars to evil, intricately designed witches.
The kit also includes cellophane so you can draw your design on a flat surface and stick it on the pumpkin to cut around – which makes it much easier! But if you are cutting pumpkins with young children the handiest part of the kit are the small cutting tools. These tools are a lot easier and safer to use than a kitchen knife and allow you to cut really cleanly and precisely. So grab one of these kits and make your jack o lanterns the envy of the neighbour hood.
