NEXT recently asked us how we celebrate Halloween as a family. This will be our baby’s first Halloween and also our first Halloween as a family. Therefore, we do not have any photos of our traditions, but I have put together two collages to show you what our plans are.
The first one is the baby one! We have a cute skeleton pyjamas and some pumpkin accessories that our girl can wear on Halloween. I want to give her some Halloween themed books and my favourite baby ones are BabyLit books. There’s a Frankenstein one and a Dracula one and they make perfect books for Halloween. I’ll be serving up some mashed pumpkin for my baby’s tea — she loves pumpkin and butternut squash. A Halloween toy like this tag-blanket would be great too!
The second collage is for us adults – mum and dad! A tradition that we do have, is that we make Portuguese pumpkin jam every year. We’ll be doing that as usual. It is so delicious!
If I get the chance, I’ll paint my nails black! I rarely get to paint my nails now that I’m a mum though…
The plan for the evening is to snuggle up under a warm blanket, light some candles, watch a scary film, eat fun sized chocolates and maybe have some spooky cocktails.
How are you celebrating Halloween this year?
