Get ready for Halloween 2020 on the Cote D'Azur 2020

Halloween is creeping up fast, so it's time to get planning!

Yes, Halloween – on the Riviera and everywhere in the world – will look different this year.

Don't be scared, there are still lots of events still planned to take place! Due to the pandemic, expect celebrations to be smaller with sanitary precautions or more home-oriented, but that doesn't mean it can't be just as much fun!

Whether you are looking to bake some seriously creepy cupcakes like the ones we have been sharing on our Instagram, carve some pumpkins, buy or make your own spooky costume, try out the "zombie bride" face paint transformation in our video, find decorations and supplies to create your own home Halloween event or find amazingly terrifying events - and actually we found quite a few that are going ahead - then you will find it right here!

Pumpkin Carving

Get into the spooky spirit and carve some pumpkins. For me, Halloween is not complete without some scary pumpkins with twinkling tealights (I recommend the battery operated type) adorning the front porch. Pumpkin carving is a great messy and sensory play activity and is a great family project. If you are carving inside put down a plastic table cloth or sheet to make for an easy cleanup. The scooped-out flesh can be used to make a traditional American pumpkin pie or soup and the seeds can be baked in the oven for a deliciously nutritious snack.

 

This year our partner, A Nos Racines has some adorable gift-boxed carving pumpkins for sale at their boutique in Vallauris. Don't forget to use our Privilege Club coupon code: enfantsdazur to get your 5% on everything in the A Nos Racines boutique. And they deliver too!

 

The local supermarkets are another place to find pumpkins in time for Halloween. E.Leclerc has a large variety of pumpkins available at their stores across the region.

Halloween Decorations

Want to turn your home into a haunted house? Let your imagination run wild. Halloween wouldn't be a spooktacular affair without the eerie decorations. Most supermarkets have a huge range of tools, props and inspiration to make your own Haunted House at home. However, here at Enfants d'Azur we love to support and promote small local businesses, mumpreneurs/dadpreneurs and start-ups. After all we are a start-up Parenting Magazine on the French Riviera ourselves, so I want to tell you about my favorite new find: Party Box Paris.

Jade David, the entrepreneurial owner behind Party Box Paris, wanted to create an easy option for busy parents, to help them easily throw a fun party for their kids at home. The boxes contain everything you need in one place and include a mix of plates, napkins, cups, cutlery, party bags, capes, masks, a balloon arch kit, fun foil balloons, and banners.

Jade stocks a number of themes including Princess, Animal Party, Dinosaur Party, Superhero Party... and can also arrange ‘custom’ boxes for a chosen theme.
Party Box Paris ship all over Europe (including the Alpes Maritimes and the UK)
Their Halloween boxes are priced at 45/65€ and birthday boxes are priced at 85€
E.Leclerc has a wide variety of Halloween decorations, face paint and costumes in stores across the region as does Carrefour.
