Getting Ready For Halloween!

September 5, 2008 at 10:05 am Leave a comment

Once the children go back to school after the summer holidays, my mind turns back to business. Part of running your own store involves thinking a season or two ahead. Now often, I can’t think a day or two ahead but I’ve learnt from experience that if I don’t get in there quick, the new product ranges are all sold out.

So the beginning of September means I have to be thinking of Halloween (and I’m afraid to say, Christmas, shortly thereafter!). This week, I had great fun looking through the Wilton 2009 yearbook and ordering new items in for our Halloween range.

Cupcake cases are always popular and I’m sure these new Halloween ones will be no exception.

 Sometimes the best things happen by mistake! Trying to read my hurried scrawl, I typed in the wrong reference number when I ordered from the supplier. Instead of the anticipated Christmas cake cases, these turned up and they’re  rather lovely…..just the thing for this autumnal weather. They fit perfectly in our 24ct mini muffin pans.

 Spooky ghost cupcake cases are available in standard (5cm base diameter) and mini cupcake (2.5cm base) sizes. Best sellers last Halloween, they’ve continued to sell throughout the entire year. So, a ghost’s not just for Halloween…….

These “Boo Scary” cupcake cases are a welcome addition to our Halloween range. Made by Wilton, they are available in standard size and come in packs of 75. These make a fantastic match with our new orange and black sparkling sugars also from Wilton.



I think of all the goodies we sell in our seasonal ranges, this gingerbread Haunted House has to be my favourite. It’s prebaked which means less hassle for the adults and comes with everything the kids need to make the perfect haunted house.

My youngest daughter doesn’t like carving pumpkins but thoroughly loved making one of these last year. In fact, Halloween fell in the middle of half-term week in Swansea so it was a great activity for passing the time, especially on the rainier days. Annabel took the completed article over to a neighbours and it took pride of place as acenterpiece for the Halloween party.
