OE Guide to Halloween

halloween-feature-image

Our children adore Halloween. From the dressing up to the handfuls of sweets they are given by each of our wonderfully generous neighbours, it’s a special date that they look forward to all year and seeing them so excited is so much fun for us too.

It’s not the time to be subtle or understated. We decorate the kids, the houses and ourselves in all things ghoulish – baking cakes with bright orange icing, carving pumpkins and festooning our housse with green and purple bunting and dangling spiders.

So here are a few of our Halloween finds. They are not particularly stylish (it’s not a less is more kind of day) but they make our little trick or treaters so happy and we think they will do the same for yours.
