AAACK! - Halloween 2013

 


 
It's almost time for one of the best holidays of the year, Halloween!  Whether you plan on getting dressed up and going Trick-or-Treating, or staying in to receive the Treaters, we have what you need this season to make it fun.  From decorations to costumes to gifts to candy, we have it in-store!
 
 
A few of the cute-if-not-spooky items on our mantle.
 
 
Some clever bottle stoppers to be used for d├ęcor or to re-cork that cab sauv that spiced up the cauldron.  The little witch hats are perfect for the apothecary.
 
 
Here our plush raccoon buddy models one of the spider headbands.  All of the headbands are lined in soft velvety fabric so they are comfortable to wear to the all-night Monster Mash!
 
 
Another headband look, this one is insanely meta when you think about it: a headband on top of your head that IS a head WITH A HAT ON.  So many layers and before you get them all figured out, the entire headband LIGHTS UP and blows what fragments were left of your brain out the spook house window.  More for the zombies!
 
 
A decorative skull models another light-up headband design of meta-witchy proportions.  Also those little pumpkins in the photo are our locally-made hand soaps that make a really cute gift.
 
 
That witchy headband has a matching shimmer light that will tower over your other spooky-themed shimmer lights and create quite a light show on an eerie autumn evening.
 
 
We've got some great outdoor decorations to attract easy prey I mean Trick-or-Treaters to your haunted mansion.  These twirling wind catchers come as witches or skeletons.  Stop in to see our Gigantic ghosts, too!
 
 
This seasonal silk arrangement is scary, but in a pretty sort of way.  It really wants to be covered in fake cobwebs and set alongside a serving table full of individually-wrapped candy and bowls of peeled grapes.
 
 
Some cute serving plates with sinful phrases on them, as well as one of our cute ghost vases and a decorative plate.  Wickedly charming!
 
 
This Jack-o-Lantern plugs in and will never burn out, rot, catch fire, get smashed or come to life and stalk you with a butcher knife.  I can promise this is true of 4 of 5 of those things.....
 
 
Well we are known for doing flowers, so here's a few pictures of our recent design work, starting with a fun Fall-inspired arrangement with a big sparkly spider to celebrate Halloween.
 

 
A very simple treat that will not trick.

 
A wonderful bouquet of Fall colors and textures including red and orange alstromeria, orange roses, solidago, cattails, and an awesome orange-red dahlia.

 

 
Our Holiday Open House is right around the corner, so the shop will only be looking Spooktacular for another few weeks.  Be sure you drop in to see, its a SCREAM!
