As the weather gets chillier and the nights get darker, we know that Halloween is well and truly on its way. Arguably, this Halloween is more important than any other year as we emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic. Last year, excitable children were restricted to their homes on Halloween, making preparation for this year’s trick-or-treaters even more critical.
Here at Flowers Buy Delivery, we offer a wide array of gourmet sweets, chocolates, and Harry Potter treats. Your house will surely be the talk of the neighbourhood if you give out our delicious confections this Halloween.
However, once you have purchased and passed out your scrumptious selection of sweets, you might want something to enjoy for yourself. We have gorgeous varieties of autumnal bouquets, wreaths, and baskets to seasonally decorate your home.
We supply a varied range of fruit jellies, glacé fruit, jelly belly sweets, liquorice, marzipan, nougat, and Turkish delight. This will certainly make a change to the standard lollipops that are usually handed out during the spooky season.
Get in the Halloween spirit and show your neighbours that you care by purchasing our charming gift boxes filled with novelty sweets. Whether it be a dinosaur or a gator, we have sweets in all manner of fun shapes that are sure to bring joy to trick-or-treaters this Halloween.
In addition to tasty sweets, we provide a delectable selection of Belgian chocolates, chocolate bars, chocolate covered fruit, fondant creams, and novelty chocolates. These luxury goodies will outshine your typical fun-size chocolate bar.
One thing that is certain is that everybody loves chocolate, and we do not supply just any ordinary chocolate. We stock anything from chocolate gold medals to cars; our treats are not just for eating, but for playing with, too!
Harry Potter Treats
Browse our Harry Potter range to provide your young neighbours with a magical selection of treats. We supply chocolate wands, Bertie Botts Beans, chocolate Hogwarts tickets, chocolate frogs, jelly slugs, magical sweets, and jellybeans in the colour of your chosen house.
Whether you are Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin, we have the most mystical goodies available to you, where the real magic is in the taste!
If Halloween for you is a cosy evening over that of a spooky night-time voyage, our beautiful flower ranges will create a tranquil autumnal ambience. Consider our Autumn Wreath to hang from your door and invite the trick-or-treaters, or perhaps our Rusty Reds Basket Arrangement to sit beside your sweet bowl.
Why Do We Celebrate Halloween?
During the 7th century, Pope Boniface IV created All Saints Day which was observed on 13th May.; however, Pope Gregory III moved the day to 1st November a century later in a bid to create a Christian version of the originally Pagan Samhain festival. The day before All Saints Day was named All Hallows Eve, hence the name Halloween.
Samhain was a Celtic festival that was held on 1st November; it was believed that the souls of the dead returned to their homes on this day. It is for this reason that people dressed in costumes and lit bonfires to ward off spirits.
Trick-or-treating initially gained popularity in the United States during the early 20th century. This was due to Irish and Scottish communities restoring the Old World tradition of “guising”. Guising involved someone dressing in a costume, reciting a joke, or performing a trick in exchange for a treat.
Stay Safe This Halloween
Although the restrictions are now behind us, the coronavirus is in no way dormant, and Halloween must be approached with caution. It is a good idea to wash your hands both before and after you answer the door to trick-or-treaters to hand them sweets. Additionally, you may want to leave hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes by your door; this will give trick-or-treaters the option to sanitise their hands and disinfect any sweet wrappers.
Halloween can absolutely go ahead as planned this year, but we must still make a conscious effort to keep everyone safe.
