How To Have a Happy Halloween This Year

As with everything, that we have done for the last 6 months, we need to do Halloween differently too.

This blog gives you some great ideas, on how you can still have a happy Halloween this year.

You’ve Been Booed

I absolutely love this idea, and wish I had know about it before.

You’ve Been Booed is a fun Halloween tradition where you secretly deliver treats to your friends or neighbors.

You put treats & gifts into something like a bowl or pumpkin ( my stuffed balloons would be great for this!!) make sure you include a card saying you’ve been booed.

You will also need a card saying I’ve been booed for them to display in their window, so they don’t get booed again.

The idea is that they, then go and boo someone else.

An example of my Halloween stuffed balloons, the wording can be changed, to you’ve been booed and inside will contain all the different bits you need. You can book in your balloons here.

I spy Halloween

This idea has been taken from all the rainbows we had in our windows throughout the summer in lockdown.

Instead of going around to your neighbors trick or treating, you just walk around and spot all the Halloween decorations that have been put up. Then you the parent give the sweets out – why not make a bit more fun and give them a list of items to look out for, then for everyone they tick off, they get a treat.

Why not hang a balloon hoop in your window or garden for people to see, when playing I spy Halloween.

Spooky Home Cinema

If you really don’t want to go out and about, why not set a spooky home cinema.

Decorate your room up, get lots of spooky themed snacks and just put Halloween films on.

Here are some of my favorite kid friendly films

  • Frankenweenie
  • Halloween town
  • Monster House
  • Pooh’s Heffalump Halloween Movie
  • Coraline
  • Corpse Bride
  • Goosebumps
  • Scooby doo on Zombie Island
  • The Witches
  • Toy story of terror
Halloween Candy Cups

Candy cups, make great treats for I spy Halloween or for when you are watching your spooky films.

Sweet cones are perfect treats to have at your spooky cinema or to have a on hand for trick or treaters.

I hope this gives you some ideas of what to do this year and hope you all have a happy Halloween what ever you get up to.

Until next time

A Guide to having a Balloon Hoop at your special occasion.

Balloon hoop / moon gate / wreath

Whichever name your prefer to call them, they are so on trend right now.

The top 5 places to have a balloon hoop is:

  • Weddings
  • Baby showers
  • Birthday Parties
  • Communions
  • Halloween Parties

I offer 2 different sizes of balloon hoops – A large hoop or a small hoop.

My large hoop is a hire item & will need to be collected after your event and the small hoops are your to keep.

Both designs can have the balloons displayed in all different ways from, half designs, to full designs.

Large Hoop Design

If you want to make a feature out of you balloon décor, this is way to go.

Standing at just over 6ft tall a large hoop / moon gate will WOW your guests.

The most popular way is have the hoop as a backdrop for your cake. Either framing the cake or having it as a backdrop, so there is still plenty of room for you to have your photos taken with it too.

Small Hoop Designs

If you looking for something a bit smaller. Maybe for a smaller house party or a birthday gift for someone, a small hoop is perfect for this.

You can hang them, or sit them on a table.

You can have names, letters or words, ages added or themed ones – Take a look below to see the Halloween themed one!
