HALLOWEEN STORAGE HACK
Before you unpack your sacred Halloween boxes, totes and bins, let’s talk about a great way to pack it back up with a system that lets you know where everything is. I’m always asked where I store all of my decor, but I thought I would share how I store it and why I haven’t looked back.
HALLOWEEN LIGHTING GUIDE
Let me preface this Lighting Guide by saying that I am no electrician or lighting designer…even with a theater background. This is all from trial and error and years of advice from other really great Halloween folk who can light up a room with the best of them.
Since I am not an electrician, there is no cutting wires, wiring things together, or soldering. Maybe in the next guide! These tips are great for any Halloween lover from beginner to advanced looking to enhance their thriving Halloween display from a single room to the entire estate.
THRIFTING FIELD GUIDE
If only there was was a guide book on navigating thrift stores. Look no further! This Thrifting Field Guide is packed with ideas, tips, checklists, and nostalgic Halloween illustrations. It’s all there! It’s professionally printed and it conveniently fits in your back pocket as you travel from store to store.
HALLOWEEN PARTY TIMELINE
Holiday timelines are a dime a dozen. There are a lot of them. This is mine based off of what has worked for me. Tweak yours based on how small or large your party is and let it evolve each year. Look at others too and compare. Mine may not work for you and that’s ok. Use it as you need!
PARTY CUP PALOOZA
The best thing you can do for your party is get some personalized party cups. You’ll thank yourself for this investment!
PICK YOUR POISON – BAR SETUP
Bartender or not, you want guests to find your drinks easily and hopefully incorporated into the decor of the party.
HACKER TIP! Starting in January, every payday, buy a bottle of liquor. It will save you from having to buy it all at once right before the party and drop hundreds of dollars at once.
