Halloween is the perfect theme to spice up your event this month. This is the one occasion when you can let your creative side go completely mad! The possibilities are endless: merge the traditional - pumpkins, spiders and webs - with elegant candlesticks and Autumnal floral arrangements, and you will create an irresistibly spooky, yet sophisticated and stylish setting. Move your dinner party outside, throw in plenty of candles, and you will add to the eerie mood, whilst bright and voluptuous pumpkins and flowers provide excellent colour and texture to the table.

For all of your last-minute Halloween needs, check-out the brilliant Twilight Trees, Crockford Bridge Farm for pumpkin picking, and Angels Fancy Dress for costumes and decorations.

You can never have too many candles at Halloween. A tonne of candles gives your event authentic, ghostly lighting. Bring out creepy classics such as Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and Charlie Clouser’s “Hello Zepp”, and you’ll create the perfect ambience.

When it comes to food and beverage at Halloween, look no further than the abundant and magical feast at Hogwarts. Fill the table with cauldrons of soup, trays of hot veggies, giant roasted chickens stabbed with a large Chef’s knife, and an overflowing, fantastical desserts and sweets table. Halloween allows us to cook and serve a menu with the best, vibrant and intriguing colours, so don’t be afraid to serve hot, orange soups and bright, green margaritas.

Don’t forget the best parts of Halloween: unbelievable costumes, scaring your friends, and mini chocolates in their hundreds.
