A Natural Halloween

Don’t get me wrong, I love a themed few weeks in October where the majority of our activities are Halloween based & I love creating meals for our family with pumpkin & lots of sweet treats but what I don’t feel the need for is a mountain of cheap, throw away plastic decorations & costumes that every supermarket seems to put in our faces to tempt us at this time of year (ironically they don’t want us to put the cheap plastic decorations in a plastic bag to bring them home though!). It really does make me quite angry! I think the main issue I have is that a natural Halloween with investment costumes look so much better anyway, so there really is no point in any of it! Right rant over, here’s some inspiration from my favourite…Pinterest, for a more sustainable Halloween:


I’ve decided to DIY a pumpkin vase for the table centrepiece and a couple of mini ones scattered around, which I painted gold to add a another element. I’ve used 2 pumpkins as flowerpots for heather, these will go outside after Halloween for the next few weeks, likely well into November. Some small accessories add a spooky feel to the autumnal look with a reclaimed wood sign, black candles and painted twigs, all of which I already had from previous years.

I’m also planning on creating a Halloween themed share board for us along the lines of the one below to eat whist watching all of our favourite Halloween movies .

Happy Halloween!

Pin for later…
