Halloween Fun, How to Carve a Pumpkin and more

As the ghosts and ghouls come out to play this Halloween and the doorbell chimes non-stop with endless ‘trick-or-treaters’, make sure you follow these top tips for a super spooky Halloween night! 

  • Creepy costumes for little critters! - Plenty of fun can be had with just some coloured card. Get creative and make witches’ hats, cat masks and devil horns
  • Set a scaring scene – Use red or green light bulbs to give an eerie glow to the room and task your children to make cardboard tombstones and bats to decorate the walls
  • Keep the hot drinks flowing for your adult guests with the Senseo Latte Select while the kids enjoy their fright night. Place the Senseo template on your frothy coffee and sprinkle chocolate on top to give you a spine-tingling treat
  • Menacing melodies – Scary Halloween music is readily available, but why not have fun recording your own sounds? Use the old classics; werewolf howls, evil laughter and creaking doors
  • Lastly, don’t forget the Halloween ritual of carving the pumpkin:
    • Slice off the lid with care as you will want to re-use it
    • Use a large spoon to remove the middle of the pumpkin leaving a 3cm wall for where you want the face to go
    • Draw the face on paper and then tape it to the pumpkin, use a skewer to mark holes along the lines of the drawing, when you remove the paper you will have a dotted line of the face
    • Carve along the dotted line using a sawing action and different sized knives if needed
    • Tea lights are great for lighting up your pumpkin, make a small hole in the lid to allow smoke to escape
