Our Favourite Family-Friendly Halloween Decorating Ideas

The season of trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving and fancy dress is here. Children around the country are eagerly anticipating collecting fistfuls of sweet treats from well-prepared neighbours. It’s the one night of the year that it’s acceptable for kids to stay up well past their bedtime and fill up on sweets. Yes, that’s right, it’s Halloween! Whether or not you’re dreading the sugar highs, Halloween is a great opportunity to create new memories and get creative with the kids. We don’t believe that everything Halloween-inspired needs to be garish, messy and nightmare-inducing - we prefer our parties in true Meri Meri style!

At first, Meri Meri’s founder, Meredithe, created glittery cards from her very own kitchen table. Now this LA-born brand is known internationally for its creative partyware, gifts and even bakeware. Meri Meri is one of our favourite brands at Feather and Nest – its colourful, fun products always put a smile on our face. And we believe that’s how it should be at Halloween parties too, especially when they’re for children.  We have everything you need to throw a party the kids will adore, from Halloween table decorations to party bag goodies. And the best part? There’s no fake blood in sight! Phew.

Halloween Decorating Ideas for Mini Ghosts and Ghouls

Create a Spook-tastic Atmosphere

Forget getting out of breath blowing up balloons, or draping hard-to-clear-up spider webs around the kitchen, our indoor Halloween decorations will be up and looking great in no time! Choose from spooky hanging skeletons, floating bats and fun garlands to create the perfect frightful atmosphere for little ones. They’re easy to store, so you’ll be ready for next year’s party, too!

Hanging Bat Decorations

Throw a Spooky Banquet

Meri Meri’s Halloween partyware comes in core tones of orange, black, red and light blues and features the same spooky characters. This makes it perfect for mix- and matching your table decorations depending on your theme. We love the cat-shaped napkins, skull party plates, bat-adorned paper cups and skeleton straws for a creepy banquet.  And don’t forget the crackers! Who says they’re just for Christmas? These spooky crackers come filled with a hat, joke and temporary tattoo. Team them up with a fun party blower, and those mini witches and wizards will be at the table in no time!
