Halloween is a great chance to dress up in fun and unique costumes and parade around the street. It is a fun holiday to collect candy & carve pumpkins, as well decorating your house for all your spooky Halloween visitors!
We always like to be prepared for the holiday by creating a check-list to ensure we’re really for all Hallow’s Eve and trick or treating throughout the neighborhood – and we wanted to share our list with you!
Halloween Check List:
1. Flashlight & Batteries – don’t get caught in the dark!
2. Back Up Candy Bag – some houses are more generous than others, and no little ghouls want to hear they can’t collect more candy, so carry an extra candy bag for those extra M&Ms.
3. Travel Umbrella – don’t let an unexpected downpour ruin the night for the little ones – carry a TRAY6 colorful travel umbrella in your bag to save those costumes from becoming a monster mess.
4. Map – Trick or treating in a new area? Have you joined up with a group to try out a new residential neighborhood? If you’re new to the area, bring a little map to save time from wandering down useless streets.
5. Watch – Time flies by when you’re having fun – but if you have little ones with a tight bedtime – keep an eye on your watch. No one wants to turn into a pumpkin!
This week officially kicks off the beginning of the highly anticipated holiday party season. Whether you’re gathering around with your friends to celebrate reconnecting after a busy year or you’re congregating at a relatives to tell family stories and catch up, this is officially the season for gathering together. There are often block parties, office parties, friend’s parties and even reunions. And as any good party guest knows – you should always be prepared with the perfect host or hostess gift!
We also believe in thinking outside the box of the same old giant tin of popcorn or the infamous fruit cake. Those just won’t do any longer. This year we want to share with our fans some festive holiday hostess gifts that will really ‘wow’ your hosts (& your friends)!
Here are a few of our favorites of the season:
1. Holiday Inspired TRAY6 umbrellas
Umbrellas are a gift that come in handy again and again. You never regret having an umbrella on you, but the minute you’re caught without one you do regret leaving it at home. Impress your hostess with these festive colored holiday inspired umbrellas! And see our special deal below!!
2. Wine Cork Spreaders by Z Gallerie
These little spreaders will go a long way. The perfect addition to any party tray – spreaders come in handy more than once. In this set of four, you’re sure to bring a smile to your host’s face.
3. Mini Glass Bottle Set by Pier 1
Not just for oil & vinegar anymore, cruets like colorful Mini Glass Bottles have endless creative uses from holding soy sauce to hot sauce to maple syrup. They also look great lined up on a windowsill with the light shining through.
