A while ago Poundland were looking for 10 Ambassadors for their bargain money saving stores – so being a SAHM to almost 2 children at the time I applied, and recieved an email a little while ago saying we had been chosen as 1 of the 10 Ambassador roles.
As part of our first Challenge we have been set a Halloween Challenge. We were sent a £20 voucher to spend in the Halloween section of the store with the task of spending £18 to decorate a room ready for a party, dress up the children, get ready for the Trick or Treaters or a mix of all of these.
£18 odviously means 18 items and having only Emmy to dress up and knowing I’m about to have a new baby I knew a party was out of the question, so I chose to get Emmy some dressing up clothes and to decorate the hall ready for all the Trick or Treaters (we are inundated with them every year!)
I actually found this rather hard as it was a lot of items to buy and have come away with outfits for my very good friends youngest 2 children as well – we are sharing the Poundland love.
Emmy now has a few outfits to choose from including:
A cat mask and tail
A Witches Outfit
A pack of 2 masks – a Mummy & a Witch
2 Pairs of Halloween leg warmers
Spider Web Wings
A witches broom
and a loot bag for when Daddy takes her visiting the neighbours (she is too young for trick or treating however we pre-arrange a time when our 3 neighbours don’t mind her showing off her cotumes).
Emmy’s friends have a pack of 2 masks aswell as a skeleton’s costume and a devil’s cape – all set for Halloween.
We have decorated the hall/kitchen door with some wonderful black tinsel adorned with Orange pumpkins and even had some money left over with which we brought a Halloween themed Cupcake stand and some Halloween Cupcake cases and we have been doing what we enjoy – baking!
Halloween themed cakes, decororated with spiders webs – a purple string of spider lights and a light up ghost decoration. Emmy loves it and it looks great.
I was very impressed with the selection and the quality of the items available and for the price you really can not go wrong! If your having a party there is a huge selection available – why spend more when you really don’t have to?
We also brought glow in the dark necklaces and glow sticks ready for Halloween.
