Halloween Party Supplies: Now and Then

1

Throwing a Halloween Happening this year?  You’re probably going to need a few scary supplies.  The Big Scare hit the pavement looking for the best Halloween paper products on the market this year…

If you are looking for something classic, elegant, and spooky, look no further than JoAnn Fabrics.  The creepy craft store is offering paper plates and napkins with this devilish design.

However, The Big Scare does not believe only in looking to the present for scary supplies for your spooky shindig.  We managed to dig up some paper plates from 1993 featuring this fantastic phantom…  and some pretty nifty neons.

To be honest, we can’t decide which is better, so we’re going to offer both and let our ghosts… er… guests decide.

Spook Spotter: Dollar Finds: Paper Monsters Play Set

While browsing through the 99¢ Only Store, we stumbled on a most amazing phenomenon…something so incredible, we mistrust our own judgement.  Look!

What you see above is a very unique item featuring great looking monsters and a cool haunted house.  And while we aren’t entirely certain what it is supposed to be, we decided to call it a Monster play set.  Despite the fact that the package insists this is not a toy, we are uncertain what else it could be.  Oh, of course, they can call it a “centerpiece” all they want, but with 8 stand-up monster figures and a haunted house, a paper play set is more likely.

Included with the haunted house are small cutout figures: a vampire, werewolf, Grim Reaper, witch, mummy, skeleton, scary scarecrow, and a Frankenstein Monster who will look awfully familiar to many a monster kid.

Take a look at this beauty for yourself at your local 99¢ Only.  Well that’s a wrap for September.  Join us next week as we kick off October with The Big Scare’s Halloween Activities Week – 2012 edition.

What Halloween party would be complete without some creepy paper eatery?  Every year, we here at The Big Scare try to track down some of the best looking plates and napkins for our haunted gatherings.  But this year, we had been having some difficulty.  It used to be that Target would be our go-to place for our Halloween party supplies.  Of late, however, their selection has been dreadfully disappointing.  This year, we carried our search from store to store with few positive results.  That was until we went into the 99¢ Only Store…

While their variety of Halloween paper eatery was nothing to scream about, one design captured our little black hearts: The Technicolor Cat Print!

This groovy, yet Hallow-chic, design was just what the Witch Doctor ordered!  What a purr-fect combination of Halloween Hip and Traditional Gothic Goodness!

Where do you usually go to gather your Halloween party goods?  And what theme will your Halloween party taken on this year?
