Yet again the shelves in Poundland are being turned over to the seasonal products celebrating Halloween. A fantastic array of spooky goodies from tableware, fancy dress, decorations, confectionery and bakeware are available and all for the bargain price of just £1! This makes it so easy to budget and keep tabs on how much you are spending, while ensuring you get everything you need to make your Halloween party frightfully good fun!
We were challenged to see what we could buy with £20 and I was very impressed with our haul. I love the BOOO! themed tableware that they have this year. The spooky ghost can be found on cups, plates, napkins, tableclothes and bowls to set the scene for a fantastic Halloween party. The bowls and plates come in packs of 20 which is excellent value for just a £1, and the cups come in a pack of 40. Plenty to go round. The black plastic cutlery set is a very useful addition to the party table and the novelty pumpkin straws are a lot of fun and come in packs of 8 in either orange or purple.
The BOOO! theme continues with the cupcake stand and cupcake decorating set. These are some of my favourite items this year. The stand is made of sturdy card and the decoration set includes cake cases and toppers to make some easy Halloween themed cupcakes. The stand filled with cakes makes a real show stopper table decoration!
The jelly moulds that I picked up are absolutely genius. There is a brain and a severed hand mould which will be used to make some scary jelly. Kids love jelly...they will love a green Frankenstein's hand jelly and a pink brain jelly even more so!
The cookie cutter set is a great addition to the kitchen at Halloween, perfect for making biscuits or cutting out little sandwiches. The set includes a church, a cat, a ghost, a bat, a pumpkin and a gravestone. You could also use them to make fondant icing shapes to decorate a Halloween cake.
Spooky balloons are always a hit with kids and the pack of orange and black ones are great value at just £1 for 18. I resent paying more than that for something that is probably going to end up being popped by the end of the night. Why pay more?! They can really help make a room look the part when strung up in bunches. Poundland have heaps of other ornaments, window stickers, lights, toys and decorations to transform your home into a haunted house.
The Inflatable Kids' Seat was a great find. It's like a black rubber ring with a bottom decorated with skulls. It will give Freddy somewhere fun to sit while he watches some spooky cartoons on TV!
I love the Halloween costume accessories. I bought a two pack of Masquerade masks. They are handy to have for impromptu dressing up and are good to have at a Halloween party for the guests to wear if they aren't in fancy dress. Masks add an element of mystery and intrigue and are perfect for Halloween. Other fancy dress accessories include hats, tights, special effects make-up, plastic weapons, glow stick jewellery, wings, deeny boppers, false nails and eyelashes.
The confectionery range at Poundland represents superb choice and value. With brands such as Swizzels Matlow, Maom, Fruitella, Chupa Chups and HARIBO you know you are getting good quality. Other confectionery items include Voodoo Candy Charms, Gummy Eye Balls, Spooky Popping Candy and Skull Sucker Lollies. I loved the Flying Sorcerors in orange and black. Perfect for Trick or Treaters. Other top brands of snacks such as Oreo, Cadbury, Fruit Factory, Mr Kipling, Pom Bear and Walkers offer alternatives to sweets and are great fayre for a party.
