Halloween is almost upon us!

And I’d love to say we are all ready but we keep finding a million and one other things to keep us busy rather than finishing off our costumes and decorations.

So it’s all going to get a big crazy getting everything done in time for trick or treating on Thursday and our Halloween party on Saturday.

I’ve been looking for inspiration for trick or treat bags and also some ideas for yummy food that isn’t just huge piles of sweets.
