Wednesday, 18th Oct 2017


    There are few holidays in the year that bring so much excitement to town that it is hard for anyone not to get involved. Halloween is undobtedly one of them. Each year, on October 31st, people all around the world dress up in extravagant costumes, decorate their homes with spooky ornaments and indulge themselves in tons of sweet treats.

Here are some of the most fun traditions that are associated with Halloween. We hope you will get enough inspiration to celebrate the holiday in the most interesting way this year along with your whole family.

1. Creative costumes

Crafty costumes bring the Halloween spirit to life. Kids just love dressing up as witches, ghosts, pirates, fairies or even vampires. It is a very fun idea to throw a ghostly party, invite friends over and enjoy a day filled with frigthfully great emotions.

2. Trick-or-treating

"Trick-or-Treating" is one of the most popular traditions for children on Halloween. They dress up in funny costumes and go from house-to-house  to ask for treats. It is a wonderful way to spend some quality family time together, walking around the neighbourhood, having fun and collecting sweet treats.

3. Pumpkin carving

A creatively crafted pumpkin is a must-have on Halloween. There are so many intersting carving ideas to go for. Geometric shapes are easier to be done, while more creative ideas such as carving a scary or even silly face would take up more of your time and effort. In order to make your pumpkin even more attractive and impressive, add some battery-operated candle inside and display it at the front porch to add an extra glow to your home.

4. Home decoration

Turning your house into a Halloween wonderland can be superfun. Fake spider web, carved pumpkins, standing ghosts, hanging bats, spooky bones and shaking skeletons are just some of the great ideas to decorate your lovely home and turn it into a real haunted house for the holiday.

5. Flower decoration

Flowers would also make a very festive decoration for your home. Orange, yellow and red colours are widely used for Halloween floral arrangements. Use orange lilies as a floral centerpiece and add roses, gerberas or lisianthus to finish the arrangement. The burst of bold colours will instantly add a cheerful feel in your home.
