Here at Primark HQ, we’ve gotten a little spooktacular with our Halloween preparations. There’s nothing like a ghostly get-together to get the whole family – and all their friends – into the supernatural spirit. The good thing is, we’re here to help you throw a great party, without the massive hassle or spine-chilling damage to your bank account.
It’s all about being creative with your planning – a couple of decorations here, a few handy DIY tricks there – and quicker than you can say ‘BOO!’, you’ve got yourself a party on your hands.
For the DIY aspects, we’re all about keeping the balance: we made some pretty creepy orange pumpkins and some spider web cupcakes.
With the cupcakes, we bought 12 plain madeira cakes and decorated with a little bit of candy floss and a decorative spider (but make sure everyone knows that bit isn’t edible!).
If you want to mix it up with a simpler, healthier option, factor in a bowl of customised oranges – doodle on the front in black marker to create some spooky faces – get the kids involved!
Start out by decorating the table area with lines and lines of themed 'fairy'-lights, then dim the room light and marvel at the instantly spooky atmosphere. Factor in a few characters - like the snow globe pumpkin or sit the little figurine with his ghosty friend on the edge of the table.
Our character-themed lollipops are almost too cool to eat, but will look great fanned out on a plate or popping out of the pumpkin trick 'o' treating bag - and we're pretty sure the kids will have no qualms with eating them!
With our Primarket section holding host to an array of Halloween focused product, including jelly sweets, creepy spider toys and eye masks, you can personalise your event to incorporate your favourite aspects of Halloween. Even our clothing department offers a selection of themed product – keep your eyes peeled…
