As I browsed Pinterest this year looking for ways to decorate our own office for Halloween, I was genuinely inspired to kick it up a notch. In speaking with local businesses and some of our customers, I realized I was not alone.
This year it's all about lavish Halloween office parties with 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 also inspiring and 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.
As a result, our new Halloween eCard line has a bit of a gothic romance flair. We've used deep burgundy and purple with black to create a set of modern, elegant Halloween eCards and invitations.

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 blog: The Business of Halloween. Check it out for some 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 also added a new line of Gothic style free wallpapers which you can enjoy on your desktop, laptop, tablet, iPad and phone. Our Gothic wallpapers were inspired by our Halloween eCard or invitation designs but you can use them any time of year.
Have a happy Halloween!
