The time has come. Halloween is just around the corner which means itโ€™s time to embrace your dark side. What? You thought because youโ€™re too old for trick or treating that the fun has stop? Oh no. Trust me, there are plenty of ways to celebrate the night of screams regardless of age or size and Iโ€™m being the all-out-Halloween kinda gal I am. Iโ€™m going to share some fun ideas on how you can get into the spooky spirit this Halloween!

1.Halloween Movie Marathon
If like me youโ€™re into scary films, then why not embrace the spooky season by turning off the lights and watch all of your favourite horror movies. Feeling brave? Get a blanket and watch them alone or grab some tasty snacks and invite your friends over for some moral support.

2.Bake Some Halloween Treats
Whatโ€™s Halloween without some themed goodies? Baking is a great way to embrace the season and is something the whole family involved in. Donโ€™t be afraid to get creative. Pinterest has a whole host of ideas to try from marshmallow ghosts to Sugar skull pizzas so make sure to check them out!

3.Decorate The House
Halloween is all about the decorations. Donโ€™t get me wrong I like to go all out with decorating if Iโ€™m hosting a party or horror night โ€“ covering the house from top to bottom in cobwebs, spiders and skeletons. Itโ€™s a fun thing everyone can stuck into and really gets you into the spirit. But otherwise Iโ€™ll incorporate Halloween into my home with themed homeware. I currently have a pumpkin candle and spooky lights on my fireplace as well as some Halloween themed cushions. Just little subtle touches I have to add to embrace the season without going over the top.

4.Visit A Spooky Attraction
There are many Halloween themed attractions to visit once October arrives. Which ones you visit however may depends on your scare ability and age. Thorpe Park in the UK has some amazing attractions and events this time of year, something which I am hoping to go too. There are also things like Hallowscream in York which is amazing if you like to be scared. But there are likely to be many local events going on in your area such as ghost walk if youโ€™re not quite up for being chased round by people with chainsaws.

5.Host A Party
One of my favourite ways to celebrate Halloween is by hosting or attending a party. Thereโ€™s nothing better than spending time with the people who mean most to you so why not invite the family over, decorate the house and get dressed up in costumes for a night of fun and games.

6.Pumpkin Carving
Pumpkin carving is another one of my favourite things to do. Head to a pumpkin patch and pick out your perfect pumpkin and get creative with all kinds of spooky designs! You could even keep come pumpkin to make some treats with!

7.Halloween Music
Listening to Halloween music is a great way to get yourself in the Halloween mood. There are a tonne of songs to choose from and they really help set the mood, especially if you have people coming over. A few favourites of mine are Michael Jacksons โ€˜Thrillerโ€™ and Bette Midlers โ€˜I Put A Spell On Youโ€™ from Hocus Pocus.

8. Trick or Treat
Relive your youth and take the children trick or treating! Get them dressed up in cute spooky costumes and head out for a night of good old fashioned fun. Make sure to teach them a rhyme a sing and be sure to take lots of photos. Donโ€™t have any little ones to take? Get dressed up and hand out sweets yourself!

  5. I blooming love halloween! My sons are too old for the party that I threw them every year until the youngest as 12, but I still decorate. I bought two huge pumpkins today, I have all my sweets bought for the trick and treaters and we always do the ghost walk at the Fort near us. Its brilliant as its down in the cells of the Fort, with actors dressed up, all the cells have different themed horror in them, and its blooming scary! I might take a leaf from your book and bake some Halloween goodies too xx
