Super-easy Halloween Decoration idea

Turn leaves into Ghosts!
Turn leaves into Ghosts!
If you’re like us and always looking for some good and cheap Halloween Party ideas, here’s a great one for this time of year. First of all you’ll need some Sycamore leaves. They’re the ones that are the same shape as in the picture. Don’t wait until they’ve fallen and become all mushy and wet, but just grab them while they’ve still got a bit of green-ness and stiffness. Then, you need white paint. Because they’re going to be ghosts. Let them dry, and use a marker pen or felt-tips to decorate as necessary. A blob of blue-tack on the back and you can give yourself a pat on the back as a first-class do-it-yourselfer. (Of course we do hope you’ll take a look at our Halloween Decorations too! For our friends visiting from the blog there’s a special Halloween Discount running right now – you’ll need code ABV170 on the basket page.) Some of this year’s party themes:

We always forget when the clocks change at Party Ark, and were mildly surprised to find out there’s still a month left of British Summer Time. Despite a few warmish days it definitely feels like winter is getting ready to shiver our timbers.

For those of you that missed it, we found this rather spectacularly good idea for healthy Halloween foods. It’s not in the least bit complicated, and involves turning bananas into ghosts, and satsumas into pumpkins. Meanwhile, with Halloween coming rather quickly now we’ve still got some spectacular Halloween Party Themes which we think will have something for everyone.

Pimp my Banana!

Pimp my Banana: Two Healthy Halloween Treats!

Halloween Healthy Treats
Halloween Healthy Treats
We do like healthy options for Halloween food, and these ideas for making fruit more spooky are brilliant! Bananas can be turned into spooky ghosts with the addition of some chocolate chips, or maybe Smarties; while satsumas / tangerines can benefit from a little poke of celery in their heads, instantly transforming them into pumpkins! Meanwhile, if you fancy making a real evening of it, do please have a look at our Halloween partyware, which is going fast now.

If you’re a fan of Pinterest then you may like to know that we’re keen pinners, and Party Ark has it’s own Pinterest Boards for all sort of craft and party ideas. We’ve recently added an Afternoon Tea party ideas board with smashing ideas from all over the internet.

(If you’ve never had a look at Pinterest then we really do recommend you give it a try, it’s like browsing through a picture book of everything adorable.)

It’s anniversary time again, and today Party Ark is celebrating the most confusing day in the history of the Roman Emperor, when all at once brothers Constantine, Constantius and Constans became co-emperors in 337AD, presumable chosen for their X-Factor novelty names. In true proto-pop star fashion, they were known as The Three Augusti (really) and predictably it all ended in tears when they all became jealous of each other.

Today is also the 926th Anniversary of one of England’s least known monarchs, William II, son of William the Conqueror. If he’s remembered for anything, it’s because he was fantastically ginger, fantastically unpopular, and was killed out hunting in highly suspicious circumstances.

More positively, today is the birthday of the State of California which became part of the USA in 1850. The name comes from a Spanish legend of a paradise ruled by Queen Califia, on an island entirely inhabited by women, griffins and gold. Just like the real thing.

Halloween Party
New Halloween Themes for 2013

It’s back to school time once again and that means the Party Ark seasonal shelves are packed with our new Halloween ranges – we think we have our best ever partyware this year. We know it seems early to be thinking about Halloween, but if you are thinking of making an event of it (it’s loads of fun) then planning early is the way to go, not least because stocks are limited.

It’s anniversary time again, and today Party Ark is celebrating the 347th anniversary of the Great Fire of London which as all school children know began in Pudding Lane on this day in 1666. The most excellent Samuel Pepys managed to bury his best cheeses in his garden before the fire came and razed his house – among the ashes of devastation he dug them up good as new. We hope he enjoyed them. (We’re not sure what seventeeth-century cheese tasted like, but we’re not convinced it was terribly tasty.)

It’s also the anniversary of Great Britain adopting the Gregorian Calendar in 1752. Suffice to say that in that year 2 September was followed by 14 September. If you don’t understand why, the short answer is that it brought Easter into line with the time of year agreed upon by the Roman Catholic Church in 325 AD. Seriously. Oh, and because almost everyone else was using the Gregorian calendar by then too.

We’ve got a new Discount Voucher too – just use code ABV170 on the basket page and you should get 10% off your order.
