Happy Halloween from Asda

Even though the kids enjoy the whole Halloween thing, I haven’t been too taken in by the whole American phenomenon. It annoys me a bit if I’m honest. Don’t really know why, I just think it’s a bit too contrived. And the whole trick or treat thing? Hate it!

But of course I take the kids if I have to, although last year we’d had a tummy bug just before, so Halloween was cancelled and I was secretly chuffed! I didn’t put the pumpkins outside and made sure our house looked as if we weren’t taking part.

Hehe! Not very seasonal I know.

So this year, feeling a little guilty about last year, I’ve decided to try and show a bit more enthusiasm. The kids have been mega excited about it for ages because my twins were invited to a friends birthday party, which was Halloween themed, so we had to hunt for costumes etc early on! It’s the first year actually that my twins have been really into it, they’ve always been a little scared before now, so it was wonderful when Asda got in touch with us, asking if we’d like to receive some of their Halloween goodies!

I can make the house look spooctacular this year with this lot!

All these Asda products have really got us into the ‘spirit’ of things. My daughter is off to a Halloween party on Friday night which she’s looking forward to immensely, we’ve been practicing her scary make up with the kit we received and the house is feeling perfectly creepy!

We’ll be off trick or treating on Saturday, but we still haven’t carved a pumpkin and I’ve heard they’re in low supply this year… yikes, better hurry up…. now where’s my broomstick!

    I do think Asda covers everything for the family at most big celebration times better than most big supertores and this range shows that but it can take a little bit of the old fashion fun feeling out of it with the parental competition coming out in our little ones wanting more and bigger and better, it should be a fun and family time :0

  15. I love the skull candles.

  16. Sarah Louise Thompson says:

    Wow fantastic review! We bought a lot of our Halloween things from Asda this year! Great choice and very reasonable too :)

  17. Looks like you had a lovely Halloween, these all look very spooky!

  18. Megan Adams says:

    Looks like you had a really fun time!

  19. Karen Knox says:

    Those skull candles are slightly terrifying! I didn’t bother decorating the house this year, but we did dress up x

  20. Asda was very good for Halloween bits this year, I thought. Love your decorations.

  21. That big spider is fab! We have it too.
