Bewitching Halloween PartyOver the years, I’ve amassed no less than eight (yes eight!) bins of Halloween decorations and many other large pieces I can’t contain in a snap top box. Since there are so many gathered over such a long period of time, it’s hard to find duplicates, or extras of the stuff that I really love. Glittered pumpkins and skulls are a few things that I can’t seem enough of. Which is why is a great find, as they seem to have all those things and more! was nice enough to offer a $50 gift card to give away to you, my readers, to go look at a few of their new lines of Halloween decorations. They’re not just for costumes anymore! Scroll to the bottom of the post to enter the giveaway and read the rules.

halloween rick rack and crows

Crows are another one of my favorite bits of Halloween decor–they hung out in the chandelier at my very first Frog Prince Halloween bash. About 40 of them now grace our home during Halloween; my husband says he feels like we live in a Hitchcock movie during October…but creepy crows are more my thing than gore. You can find crows of all sizes, even some glittered varieties over at!

I’ve got tons of pumpkins, skulls, skeletons and spiders…and if you don’t want to sift through thirty stores to find your, you can click over here and pick up yours without leaving the comfort of your computer screen.
