Does anyone know of anywhere that sells pumpkins - without having to take out a second mortgage??!!!
I know it is a bit of a long shot as I presume they would all be imported - I have seen them in LuLu's ranging from about 300QAR for a smallish one to well over a 1000QAR for a big one - call me tight but I can't justify spending quite that much on one!
I am having a Halloween party for the kids and some friends next Friday and have managed to make some decorations for the rest of the room but it would be really nice to have a real pumpkin!
Thanks in advance!
hi.. just bought this big pumpkin in Mega mart in The Center.. it cost around 80Qar.. they also have some little pumpkins which are so cute...
just saw a pumpkin in Lulu for 1300 QAR, 49.5 Kgs and its says American...
Yes minoush is correct also try the vegetable market for fresh ones
Party kingdom just opened a new store in muntaza not far party mania try those two places also :)
Have you tried the fruit and vegatable wholesale market or the souk?
I thought the ladies at ASD brought the pumpkins for our pumpkin patch from the souk.
Ok so wasn't a halloween store but had quite a big halloween selection - the shop is called Events - it is in the Al Sadd area in Al Watani Royal Plaza - has all sorts of costumes and loads of other party things too! Was fab for us as it is quite close to where we live!
We got an inflatable pumpkin - which is pretty cool and some broomsticks which were only 14 qar each!
And yes Peter - amazingly expensive!!!!! Shocking!
QAR300 to 1000????,,,,thats a quite alot of money,,,this is place is getting expensive...better run for our lives as fast as we can.....
Try Party Kingdom, its the complex before jaidah flyover....
a halloween store? really?! which neighborhood/roundabout is it near?
Just had a call from my hubby - he was out and found a Halloween store (not far from a food palace!) Needless to say he is on his way to take me there lol! I shall post back later with exact details in case anyone else is interested! :-)
Get the plastic ones from party mania or party kingdom you can use them again next year!
Saw them in LuLu pumpkins from America guess only the over paid Americans can afford them!
Dean and Deluca in Villaggio have them for 180 qr each some decent size ones which work out good value as they are not sold by weight.
They also have a giant decoration pumpkin more than 4 feet high which is great for taking pictures with the kids !!
wait till i post a pic if i am courageous enough to make one myself...
LOL - smilingsantro - funny you said that - this is pretty much my exact back up plan!!!! :-) thank you hun
Take few copies of newspaper and make a big ball of them or u can make a big ball of Lulu polybags too.....Just make it big as big u wanna make it... make a paste of Plaster of Paris and glue on the big paper ball and spread it evenly and hand to hand make lines and shapes of pumpkin on it.Let it dry and now make a thick stem on the head of it too...now color it orange with green lines and small blackish lines and stem in green shade...Now apply a coat of turpentine oil on it to give it extra glow too.Voila in less than 50 Qrs r u will get a big pumpkin....U can make extra and sell them too... :)
