Halloween is just two weeks away so it’s time to start thinking about all things spooky. Here at City Kids we love dressing ourselves and our kids in fun costumes and also decorating our homes for the occasion – just carving a pumpkin isn’t enough for us!

So here are some of our favourite places to pick up ghoulish goodies and devilish decorations.

Meri Meri

If you’d rather do cutesy than full on scary then this is place to find adorable costumes. Think little cat ear head bands and witches’ capes.

But where Meri Meri really come in to their own is table decorations. Create the most fantastic Halloween spread with their paper plates, cups and napkins covered in sparkly bats and sculls. We also love their cookie cutter and cake topper sets. They even have skeleton crackers! Ideal for a party for younger children who might not like anything too scary or gory.


Party Delights

This online store is a one-stop-shop for all your party needs and at Halloween they offer everything to decorate your home. From hanging bat decorations, balloons and window stickers to full-on scene creating backdrops, Party Delights have it all.


Take your Halloween bash to the next level with fake gravestones and creepy props. They also have an amazing range of tableware and costumes galore for kids and adults.

Tether and Float

Any excuse for a balloon garland we say. Opt for green, black, orange and purple to create a suitably spooking one that will look great over a front door or indoors as the backdrop to your Halloween party.


Tether and Float supply everything you need, including the plump and the glue dots to stick your balloons together. As well as that they have the likes of their ‘witches’ potion’ foil balloon bouquet and many more great Halloween decorations.



Party Packs

If you’d like to give your Halloween celebrations a ‘Day of the Dead’ theme, then check out Party Packs. They have everything you’ll need to add that spooky Mexican touch with tableware, balloons and decorations featuring the classic skull and flowers design as well as bright co-ordinating items.

Opt for one of their actual party packs that will include a set of everything you’ll need for your table including plates, cups and napkins.
