    A spooky table spread

    Last year for Halloween we put our red Christmas table cloth on the table with a spider web black table cover we picked up in the Pound Shop. I then laid out the merangues me and my four year old had made – they were supposed to be ghouls, ghosts and witches in green, white and purple but where generally splodges with more icing splotches on them!

    We also had biscuits with spider webs and bats on that she had decorated as well.

    We had two different punches, one in a skull bowl and one in a hollowed out pumpkin!

    We also had a pumpkin pasty and a pumpkin pie to add to the party!

    Pumpkin Jelly

    The jelly molds didn’t work which was a shame as I had wanted some nice orange pumpkin shaped jellies for our Halloween things 🙁

    Not sure if this is a me issue or the mold :/

    A hot non-alcoholic drink for Halloween!


    1 liter of mixed berry juice or ribena
    1 liter of water
    1/2 liter of orange juice
    2 table spoons of muscovado sugar
    1 cinnamon stick
    10 cloves
    2 cm of crushed ginger root
    1 cup of chopped pumpkin
    1/2 lemon sliced
    1/2 apple sliced
    1/2 orange sliced
    2 cups of berries like blackberries and elderberries

    Put the orange juice and water into a suacepan and put on a moderate heat. Add the cinnamon, gloves and sugar, stir to stop sugar burning to the bottom of pan before it disolves. Add the fruits and bring to a rolling boil careful not to boil over and turn off heat. Serve in mugs of heat proof glass, fruit garnish for cups is optional.
