Halloween at Fortnum's

How to Host a Killer Halloween Party with Fortnum's

A spine-tingling chill has descended on Piccadilly, and the ghouls are swirling at our doors. In fact our shop is brimming with so much supernatural energy this Halloween that somebody needs to get a good exorcist down here pronto. Preferably an exorcist who likes a good party with many delicious things to eat.

We do realise, however, that the pressure of entertaining is enough to make even the best of us turn a nasty shade of green while dramatically writhing around in bed – and so Fortnum’s is here to help you throw a Halloween celebration with pitch-perfect levels of horror and delight. From our spooktacular confectionary to terrifying tipples, kindly allow us to introduce all the delicious ingredients you need to bring your Halloween party to life – and to make your trick-or-treaters’ heads spin…

Cast a wicker spell

No need to bother with a Book of Shadows – simply flip open one of our frighteningly full Halloween hampers instead. We’ve got four baskets of delicious deplorables: The Bloody Banquet Hamper, The Harvest Hamper,The Wicked Wicker Hamper, and The Autumnal Hamper. Each is bubbling over with enough ghoulish treats, hair-raising spirits, and evil surprises to sustain any hungry coven throughout the evening.

Conjure some scary snacks

Whether you’re looking to up your trick-or-treat game or satisfy the tastes of a monstrously eclectic guest list – after all, vampires and ghosts have decidedly different dietary habits – it is essential to be prepared with all manner of devourable delights. Dish out the likes of Pick Your Poison Boozy Truffles, Milk Chocolate Coffin with White Chocolate Bones and Milk Chocolate Coated Pumpkin Spiced Caramel Popcorn, and you will be unable to distinguish between screams of horror and shrieks of delight.

Add a drop of something devilish

Well, maybe more than a drop - after all, this is the one night of the year that the forces of evil come together to party with reckless abandon. Plunder the dark depths of our Piccadilly Crypt for our range of wines and spirits – from Kah Tequila served in skulls to Four Pillar Bloody Shiraz Gin, to a Fallen Angel Vodka, along with some devilishly delicious wines. See out the evening with a cosy cauldron of White Chocolate Witches Brew, glowing with an eerie green thanks to the addition of natural spirulina.
