I shouldn't be surprised anymore by how much some people love Halloween; but, every year something even more fantastical will enter the Halloween stratosphere. This year seems to be a lot about Halloween parties, decorations and dazzling food displays that are an art in themselves. Pumpkins are no longer just those scary faces that my dad cut when I was a kid. They are also an art form with everything from full portraiture to elaborate Celtic knot work designs.
This year the requests for new Halloween eCards and party invitations were a little unusual. As I spoke with many of our customers, I discovered that a lot of businesses are focusing more on 'pretty' and elegant Halloween decorations over the 'scarier' fare. The traditional Halloween colors of orange, purple and black are still popular but some of our customers are going with a gothic theme using burgundy or purple with black and white.
While I can appreciate all the beautiful decorations, the bottom line for my job is how can the average business enjoy the Halloween festivities while making it productive for them to participate. That is the subject of our newsletter, The Business of Halloween, where we provide unusual and clever ways for any business to celebrate Halloween. Whether you're planning your Halloween office party or are looking for something to inspire your employees during the Halloween holiday, you're sure to find a little something!
We also have a few Halloween 'Pics of the day' with fun facts about the holiday and a Pinterest Halloween board with some elegant Halloween food, decorating and game ideas for Halloween office parties.
We added a new line of Gothic style free wallpapers which you can enjoy on your desktops, laptops, tablets, iPads and mobile phones. Our Gothic wallpapers were inspired by our Halloween eCard or invitation designs but you can use them any time of year. Be sure to also check out our 'pic of the day' to see the new Halloween designs and for inspiration on how to use them.
Have a happy Halloween!
