Halloween is coming up soon and every year it seems to get bigger and bigger in our neighbourhood.
When Target approached me to check out their Halloween range I was interested to see what they had and what could be added to the spooky stuff we already had at home.
I picked out some solar pumpkin stakes for the front of the house, a Jack -O'-Lantern string of lights for the front door, a Halloween sign welcoming Trick or Treaters, spider webs with spiders included, ghosts, rats, Halloween paper plates + serviettes, Halloween lollies (or should it be candy?!) and some costumes.
Trick or Treaters welcome!
The lightbox got a little bit of a spooky make over too.
I love doing a subtle nod to the occasion so each room got a little something to put us in the Halloween spirit. Noah was surprised to see cobwebs and spiders on the mirror ;)
How cute are these Halloween chocolates?!
Such a great bargain with 3 bags for $5. There are some larger pumpkins underneath with chocolate spiders inside. Yum!
Now my boys aren't really into dressing up but they knew they needed a costume to go Trick or Treating or there would be no lollies!
Target had some AMAZING costumes (both kids + adults) but I grabbed something simple for the boys that could be worn with their own clothes.
Jasper was comfortable in a glow in the dark skeleton t shirt with horns and a pitchfork for extra scariness ;) Noah got the vampire costume but wasn't keen on photos so Jasper tried it on instead.
We usually do a little gathering for the boys and their friends before we go Trick or Treating and I knew these "body part" lollies would be well received.
Lots of fun eating fingers, noses and brains!
I had also seen these "Mummy" sausages on Pinterest and thought I would give them a try.
They were too easy. I just sliced some arms + legs into a thick sausage and wrapped some puff pastry around it. Instant Mummy! Delicious when dipped into sauce (blood!)
The Halloween plates and serviettes were a cute touch.
Target has a huge range of fantastic Halloween items in store to get you in to a spooky Halloween mood. It really is worth heading in to take a look. The prices are great value too.
Do you celebrate Halloween? What's your go to costume?
Target gave me a Gift Card to shop their Halloween range.
