With Halloween on the way, now is the perfect time to start planning your Halloween party! It’s a great excuse to throw a bash and we have all the products you need in store and online to entertain both kids and adults in our Big Shop of Horrors.

Halloween party

The first thing to decide is the theme – do you want a friendly character for a kids party, or a spooky atmosphere for an adult audience? If you’re opting for the kids, you can get all the products you need for just £1 each. Check out our plates, napkins and bunting in our party accessories range as a great starting point. And don’t forget to get a pumpkin to carve with our carving kit!

If it’s the grown ups you’re having round you could go with a haunted mansion theme – this spiders web is great value at just £1 and an absolute must for adding an eerie feel! Watch out for our posts coming soon on how to decorate your house to haunted perfection.

The recent weather may be temperamental, at best, but the rumours are that we can still expect more sunshine from 2013! With the upcoming bank holiday, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of it and throw a BBQ.


The Asda Party range has everything you need to make your BBQ one to remember. Our wide range of plates and napkins mean you can set a theme in the simplest way. Our personal favourites include this tropical design and the bright animal print – both key trends for the summer, and both have napkins to match!

Monsters Inc

The ever popular characters from Disney Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. have returned to our screens in the highly anticipated prequel, Monsters University. It might have been 12 years since the original movie was out but everyone is still really excited for the latest addition!

Monsters University gives us the chance to see how Mike and Sulley met in their adventures at University and how they learned to be Scarers – and given that the first movie was such a hit we are sure this one is going to be too! A Monsters University party is perfect for children of all ages and we’ve got some great products and party game ideas to make it one to remember.

We have everything you need to create the perfect Monsters University party table – choose from our tablecover, plates, napkins and cups to set the party food out in style. These balloons are great for dressing the room too!

Your baby’s first birthday is the opportunity to start celebrating their birthdays in style! It’s a great chance to spend the day celebrating your little one and having fun yourself.

First of all, why not decide if you want a character party? Is Minnie or Mickey Mouse the perfect theme for your celebration? If so, take a look at our Minnie and Mickey theme pages where you’ll find everything you need, from plates to party bags!

Your little girl would look sweet in a Minnie dress teamed with our Minnie Ears! And our Mickey piñata is a great way to entertain if the party will have older siblings or family members – it’s a pull string version, so much gentler than the traditional hitting variety! Each child chooses a string and pulls in turn, but only one will release the loot.

Or if you’d like a more generic theme for your party, why not go with bright colours or jungle animals? Our jungle animals candles are really cute, or you could go for the Number 1 numeral candle. Deck the room up with balloons – why not try inflating them with helium to make colourful displays?

Finally, make sure you have some games planned to keep older children entertained. Our Pin the Tail on the Donkey is a classic, and a bargain at just £1!

Party and Celebration Recommendation:

Sweets and treats are the perfect way to keep adults and children of all ages happy at any celebration, and that’s why we love these ice-cream print treat tubs. Use them to serve dessert in, or fill them with varieties of sweets and dried fruit for people to snack on throughout the party!
