Halloween at Saxon Square

Posted on October 19, 2017

We don’t know about you, but we love Halloween. Scary films, trick or treating, the endless bucket of sweets... perfect! So we’ve decided to whip up this spook-tastic blog to help you get in the spirit and have the best Halloween possible!

What’s the most important thing about Halloween?
The costume of course! And we have a fantastic selection of accessories and costumes for you. New Look have really brought their A game this year, with options for chilled out teens to mums-to-be.
No pregnant woman really wants to get dressed up in an uncomfortable costume, so New Look have brought out a cute maternity t-shirt that is halloweeny and comfortable. Perfect for taking the kids trick or treating in!
For the more enthusiastic Halloween lovers, they’re now selling special effects makeup and face paint so you can transform yourself into anything you want. 



Halloween is more for the children than anything... even though we do wish it was socially acceptable to stroll into work dressed as a zombie, it’s probably not going to happen anytime soon. To help your little monsters get in a spooky mood, WHSmith has a wide range of books that are perfect for some light bedtime reading! They’ve also got a range of colouring books they can doodle in and make their pictures come alive.
We’re not completely leaving out the adults though, we’ve found a fantastic cook book so you can bake some tasty treats for everyone; it’ll be perfect for party snack inspiration! 



If you’re looking to do Halloween without breaking the bank this year then we’ve got the ideal place for you... Pound Stretcher! They’ve really upped their game this year with their Halloween range!
Whether it’s kids costumes, sweets or decorations they’ve got everything you need to prepare you for the big day.



Getting dressed up and decorating your house isn’t for everyone, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get in the autumnal and Halloween spirit in other ways.
Greggs are now selling their incredible Halloween treats and who can say no to a bit of cake? Definitely not us!

And we certainly can’t turn down their chocolate covered bat biscuits, you’d have to be mad to say no to them! Alternatively  you could indulge in Costa Coffee’s autumn drinks menu, it’s the perfect way to warm yourself up in this chilly weather. 



You might even want to have a go at making some treats yourself! Holland and Barrett have come up with some amazing Halloween recipes that will be perfect to treat the kids with or to give out to trick or treaters. Check out their amazing recipes on their seasonal blog: http://www.hollandandbarrett.com/the-health-hub/wellbeing/seasonal/halloween/

We here at Saxon Square wish you a very Happy Halloween and we hope to see you all very soon!
