Have you started preparing for Halloween yet?
It’s creeping up fast and before we know it, the trick or treaters will be at the door and our little ones will be asking for costumes.
Although fun, Halloween can be expensive.
When B&M challenged us to get everything we needed for Halloween (costumes for the family and all), with just £50, we jumped at the chance and also thought that would be slightly impossible.
Costumes alone are normally £20 each, then throw in the sweets for the trick or treaters, plus the decorations for the house, and Halloween can work out very expensive.
B&M have everything you need to create a super spooky Halloween on a budget. Including; Halloween costumes, makeup, party decorations, tableware and not forgetting treats. It’s the one stop shop for making your house look scary and your family looking ghoulish.
Are you throwing a halloween party for your kids? We really loved their themed cups, plates and napkins and from as little as £1, you can get everything you need for the guests attending your spooktastic party.
I really loved the table cloths that they had in store. They feel really high quality and are only about £4. We chose the bat design and know that it’s going to last us for years to come. It can also be doubled up as a cape if you get a bit creative!
They also had novelty cups and goblets, which are perfect it you’re going all out with your party.
Have you seen their really cool, Halloween themed drinks dispensers? We had a choice of a few different ones but we chose the ‘Vampire Blood’ drinks dispenser, as we’re going to fill it with blackcurrant juice for the kids party and red wine for the adults.
Trick Or Treating
We always have to pre-prepare for Halloween and pack a bowl full of sweets to leave by our front door, ready for trick or treaters. We live on a busy road and get inundated all night long, with people knocking the door for sweets. Is it the same at your house?
We’ve prepared ourselves this year with one of the B&M halloween bowls and will be going back to stock up on bags of sweets, nearer to the time.
The bowls are perfect for leaving around the house at parties too and can even be doubled up as punch bowls for your spooky special drinks.
We’re taking Evie trick or treating for the first time this year and really liked the spooky hand-shaped bags they had in store.
The hands are attached to a pole so the children can hold them with ease and can hold them out at arms length, when they ask for sweets at peoples front doors.
Evie loves the orange pumpkin one and has spent the last few days filling it with goods from around the house and carrying them about with her.
I could not get over the value for money on the costumes. How adorable is the Ghost costume for toddlers, below? We just had to buy it for Evie.
We couldn’t get over the wide range of costumes available at B&M. It was so hard to choose just one! From bumblebees, to werewolves, to ghosts, to witches. The whole family can all go as something different, but still look amazing.
Kids costumes start from as little as £4.99 and adults costumes are cheaper than I’ve seen anywhere else. They even have costumes for your pets!
We can’t wait to dress Evie up on Halloween and take her trick or treating for the first time.

We’re going to use our remaining £16 to get some more spooky window decorations, when our B&M store gets more stock. We can’t get over how much we got for our money so far.
