Friday, September 23rd is the first day of fall and I know many of you are planning parties for fall birthdays and Halloween, so let's share some ideas for incorporating polka dots into your themes!
Above is the Halloween photo shoot set-up for Visive Photography (Jacksonville, FL and High Point, NC photographer) styled by Preppy & Pink using many of our Polka Dot Market products, including our Halloween polka dot balloons.
Let's start with one of my favorites, mini candy corn treat sacks are ready for your personalized gift tag or sticker:
Something new this year to our shop are the cute polka dot cupcake wrapper sets complete with a black cat topper and a happy pumpkin topper:
I think these happy pumpkin stickers are the perfect addition to your favor backs for classroom parties, fall festivals, neighborhood gifts and more. Dress up a simple brown paper lunch sack with your child's name in orange crayon and lots of pumpkin stickers (or let the kids color the bags and add the stickers for a party activity):
You know the popular tissue paper honeycomb globes for decorating parties? I am smitten with these new tiny pumpkin picks - they are miniature versions of the large honeycomb globes. Each pumpkin opens for a 3-D cupcake topper or appetizer pick. How cute is that?
You don't want to miss our large 12" diameter paper pumpkin lanterns either! These will look great with LED lights for Halloween night or hanging on your trunk for your church "Trunk or Treat". Reusable year after year - simply fold flat and store with your decorations. You can even hang each lantern with polka dot ribbon to increase the "cute" factor even more!
Felt Halloween bags are so much fun. This year's tote features a chiffon pumpkin applique OR a chenille white ghost applique. These are less than $10 each for an adorable bag your child will use for years. I love these bags to dress up a mantle or foyer table - fill with wrapped candies for your fall guests to sneak a sweet before they leave your home!
Looking for a Halloween or fall party favor idea? Try our polka dot treat boxes paired with coordinating personalized pumpkin stickers! Boxes are FDA-approved for food contact so fill with your best pumpkin bread or pumpkin muffins and spread the love this fall.
What, no sweets? No treats? I've got you covered. Something easy that is right up my alley - Marshmallow Sprinkle Pops! You can make without chocolate by first brushing or spritzing the marshmallows lightly with water or a glaze of powdered sugar + water. This will make the sprinkles STICK to your marshmallow pops. (Or try this easy chocolate-dipped version by Easie Peasie!)
Whatever you do, spend some time "shopping the house" to gather up any items that would work with your fall party or decorating color scheme. Start with what you have! Add orange and black polka dot ribbons, flowers, balloons, fabrics and more to items you already have at home. By gathering items all in one place, you can have a beautiful party set-up just like Stacy of Preppy & Pink created for her Halloween photo shoot shown above (first photo). No matter what, have fun and save a marshmallow sprinkle pop for me!
