Halloween-Trophy-AwardIt’s spooky how fast Halloween will be here again and planning your Halloween decorations is so fun you can never start too early. Make the most of Halloween 2008 by stocking up on the best of Halloween 2007.

Spooky scenes are always a hit on Halloween, you can create a creepy cemetery indoors or out with Personalized Traditional Tombstones, a Fabric Coffin, Bride and Groom Skeletons and a Hearse Standee. The tombstones and Hearse Standee can be customized with your own wording or name. Add an scare to the setting by including a Creep Show CD full of eerie sounds and music.

No matter what decorating scheme you’re planning for a Fog Machine and Fog Fluid make excellent special effects. Plus, fake Cobwebs are easy to decorate with, inexpensive and have a huge impact.

Welcome guests to your Halloween party or wish the neighborhood a “Happy Halloween” with a personalized vinyl banner printed with your own wording. Each banner is printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl with sturdy metal grommets for hanging them indoors or out.

Activities are often the best part of a kid’s Halloween party. Kids will love the challenge of a Monster Lab Beanbag Toss or taking pictures with a Mummy Photo-Op Standee. For smaller kids or for fun after the party’s over, hand out Halloween Activity Sets which include an activity book, crayons and a stamper.

For party apparel and treats, Halloween funtoos, Halloween Head Boppers in bat, black cat, witch or jack-o-lantern styles, Pumpkin Baking Cups and a Cupcake Tree are favorites. Present guest with the party apparel items at the door then guide them to the treat table. There’s tons more party apparel and decorations for Halloween, check out our other tips!

Halloween Costumes Get Political

Posted by Wendy Moyle on October 11, 2007

As people are purchasing costumes for Halloween 2007, ShindigZ asked visitors to their website which 2008 Presidential candidate would make the scariest costume. The site receives over 25,000 visitors each day and thousands of people responded to the question in a poll posted on the home page of the website over the past four weeks.

Hillary Clinton (53.2%) was voted the scariest costume, leading Al Gore (10.3%) by over 40 percentage points. Next was Rudy Guiliani with 9.4% of customers voting him the scariest. Rounding out the ballot were Barack Obama (7.2%), Fred Thompson (6.7%), John Edwards (6.1%), and John McCain (4%). Mitt Romney was voted the least scary Halloween costume of the major presidential candidates with just 3.1%.

Overall, the Democrats (76.8%) were found scarier than the Republicans (23.2%). With Hillary Clinton’s scary majority removed, however, the two parties are about equal with the Democrats taking 23.6% of votes and the Republicans 23.2%.

In a related poll, ShindigZ asked customers what George Bush should dress up as for Halloween. In the poll, 41.2% of customers thought President Bush should dress up in a Sharpay Costume, the antagonist of Disney’s High School Musical. 25.4% thought he should dress as the “scariest” candidate, in a Hillary Clinton mask. 14% voted for Spiderman while 11.9% thought the president should embrace his roots and dress as Walker, Texas Ranger. Another 5.2% voted for the president to dress up as his father, George H.W. Bush and finally 2.2% thought he should dress as Donald Rumsfeld.

President Bush, and all Americans, can find some of those costumes and many others at online.
