Spooky Halloween Ideas
16 October 2019
The nights are growing darker and there is a chill in the air, meaning one thing – Halloween is near!
We love celebrating this spooky event every year and seeing the local West Drayton community transform into a haunted town! Guaranteed our shop will be full to the brim with seasonal blooms in shades of burnt orange, crimson reds and dark plums – perfect for creating a Halloween theme with flowers. Artistically carved pumpkins will be displayed on front porches around town and kids will dress up as their favourite creepy character for Trick-and-Treating.
We share some of our favourite ideas to celebrate Halloween in West Drayton, Hertfordshire and Middlesex this October.
Visit Harry Potter Studio
The Warner Brothers Harry Potter Studio Tours are hosting a Master the Dark Arts event for Halloween season. Running now until Sunday 10th November, visit the Great Hall decorated with over 100 floating pumpkins, practice your wand skills with a duel against Death Eaters, and get hands- on with slimy troll snot. The perfect way to get in the Halloween mood!
Haunted House Decorations
Transforming your home in to a haunted house for fang-tastic dinner party? Talk to our florists today who can come up with some creative floral designs – whether it’s a Halloween inspired front door wreath, spooky balloons or dramatic centrepiece with flowing ivy we can help. We can deliver Halloween flowers and displays in West Drayton and the surrounding areas including Harrow and Ruislip.
A chance to show your creative side with a Halloween costume - get the scissors and fake blood at the ready! After some inspiration? Google has just released the top searched for Halloween Costumes of 2019 – topping the list was the creepy clown from IT, closely followed by the traditional Witch. Also reaching the top 10 this year was the 1980s, the scary Skelton man from Fortnite video game, and Spiderman. View Google's Halloween Fright List online here.
Check out Let’s Party in Ruislip for hire costumes perfect for Halloween!
Explore Halloween Horrors at Runnymeade National Trust
Pull on your wellies and get out exploring the countryside at Runnymeade National Trust. Running from Saturday 19th October until Sunday 3rd November, they have a family trail of Halloween Horrors – full of ghastly stories from the past. Kids and dogs welcome, come dressed for a muddy adventure!

Fun for all ages, Halloween themed games are easy to create at home. For lots of laughter, try Mummy Relay Races – 2 groups battle it out to wrap a team member up like a mummy (toilet roll is perfect for this!) and race for the finish line. Or try our favourite Pumpkin Bowling, easily made with a round pumpkin carved with finger holes and decorated old tins or plastic bottles for the pins.
