A few weeks ago my very excited children and I attended a Halloween evening at the fabulous One Aldwych hotel to test out the fantastic new fancy dress range from Clothing at Tesco.
Yummy themed food, pumpkin-carving, face painting, the UK premiere of "Monsters-vs-Aliens, Mutant Pumpkins From- Outer Space" and, best of all, really great costumes to choose from....my son was a skeleton and my daughter was a pirate witch.
There were rails of very creative costumes - dresses with cobweb sleeves, lots of purple, black and orange, great masks, lots of original and interesting details...Halloween heaven!
My great friend E loves a fancy dress event and hosts a Halloween party every year.....she knows a good costume when she sees it and on my recommendation headed straight for Tesco and bought her 2010 costume!
All costumes available from Tesco in-store and online (and they are now half-price!)
We headed home having had a lot of fun and the children were given huge goodie bags plus their fab costumes - perfect!!
We are in fact away this week-end but are going to a Halloween party this evening....the costumes are ready and the face painting has already begun :)
Thank you so much to Tarryn and all her colleagues for such wonderful hospitality - you all looked amazing in your costumes too!
