Get into the spirit of Halloween - without having your evening disturbed - by leaving out sweet surprises for your young visitors.
* Roll squares of brightly patterned origami paper into simple cones and secure with tape and hessian strong tied in a bow.
* Fill with sweets and display in jam jars with a selection of seasonal flowers and an arrangement of pumpkins and gourds.
... and if you like the idea but don't have the time? Fill a few large jam jars or a bowl with sweets for little ones to take a handful.
But remember, toffees and boiled sweets are not suitable for very young children.
