Halloween a Real Treat at Moyle House

Posted by Wendy Moyle on November 5, 2009

As could be expected, Halloween is a big event in the Moyle household. And with the spooky day falling on a Saturday this year, we knew it was going to be something special.

We always start by renting out one of the local trolleys and we invite over 30 families to be a part of the Halloween extravaganza. As you can see from the pictures, everyone dresses up—some of my favorites this year—the Kolars as spaghetti and meatballs, Sue Hoagburg as octo-mom (note the eight plastic babies strapped to her body) and Sharon Disher as a biker girl—showed just how creative our group is.

Wendy and I decided to go as our unfinished house and we scrounged building materials, paint rags, blueprints, and various construction junk to decorate our bodies. Frankly, the building process is so scary, I am not sure a costume can adequately convey the overwhelming fear of the whole nightmare. But I digress.

We also had an amazing turnout from the teenagers. At first, we thought our teens would not participate and that they were too cool to still be a part of our now ninth year of trolley treating. Fortunately, we had over 20 teens be a part of the event. Leaving our home and somehow stuffing all of us into the trolley was a minor miracle. We all use our glow necklaces and everyone is required to wear one on the trolley—

  • a. for safety to be seen at night and
  • b. so we know where the kids in our group are as they assault houses in the neighborhood.

This year, we not only handed out the traditional candy, but we gave out our new custom candy bars complete with Halloween wishes from the Moyles. Needless to say, they were all gone by the time we returned. It is always so fun to see the younger kids all dressed up in the shindigz costumes they picked out way back in august when we first publish our offerings for the year. They are so excited about this fun and candy riddled holiday.

After trolleying about for over two hours, it’s back home for a pot luck dinner of epic proportions while the kids sort candy, play sting pong, guitar hero and basketball in the driveway. Everyone gets to enjoy our “haunted bathroom” complete with spiderwebs, skeletons and the dreaded glow in the dark toilet seat. It was all pretty funny till someone slipped off in the dark.  🙂

We had our giant hanging creature over 12 feet high in the hallway and lots of Halloween décor all about the house including the custom tombstones I did for the kids. I am not sure any of them found my copywriting punny or entertaining, but I enjoyed it at least. The party went well past midnight as we enjoyed the company of great friends and their kids. We look forward to next year already.

Happy haunting!!!!

Create a Haunted Garage with Halloween Decorations

Posted by Wendy Moyle on October 2, 2009

Haunted-House-StandeeIf you’re having a Halloween party or just really looking to give the trick-or-treaters a thrill, creating a haunted garage is a great way to add some extra fright and fun to your Halloween! We have an awesome Haunted Garage Kit that includes tons of great ways to transform your garage into a haunted setting.

The Haunted Garage Kit includes Cobblestone Flat Paper (50′ roll), Black Poly Vinyl (100′ roll), Black Gossamer (50′ roll), Black and Blue Tissue Grass (1 dozen each), Skull tombstones (set of 3), Bloody Bandage (3′ roll), Moon and Bat Cutouts (pkg of 4), Bloody Weapon Garland (7 1/2′ long), Gruesome Ground Breakers (Set of 2) and Cobwebs (set of 6).

Use the cobblestone flat paper to cover the floors, creating a dungeon look. Cover the walls with black poly vinyl and black gossamer to hide bikes, lawn mowers, and the like and to enhance the feeling that your garage is a haunted house or dungeon. Use the black and blue tissue grass to add some texture to floors or tables. The Skull Tombstones make great scene setters and photo settings for a focal point to your haunted garage. Add some Gruesome Ground Breakers to them for a scarier look. Create a border around the room with the Bloody Bandage roll. Suspend the Moon and Bat Cutouts from the ceiling with fishing line or attach them to the walls. Finish the scene off with the Bloody Weapon Garland and cobwebs strewn throughout.

Create an even spookier atmosphere by adding a fog machine to your haunted garage decorations.

Add some haunted house décor to the outside of your house too with our Haunted House Standee (shown above). It stands 10’ tall and 9’8” wide and has a spooky haunted house image, making it a fantastic entrance piece or photo setting for your haunted house party or Halloween decorations.

Finish your decorating off with aPersonalized House of Horror Banner. The banner coordinates with our Haunted House Standee and features your custom wording. Each of our banners is printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl with sturdy metal grommets for hanging. Plus, you can choose from a variety of sizes to best fit your decorating needs.

Haunted Hill Tableware Sets a Fall Harvest Scene

Posted by Wendy Moyle on August 21, 2009

Haunted-Hill-Tableware-EnsembleFor a Halloween party table that works well for both adult guests and kids, creating a table with decorations that features plenty of fall harvest colors as well as ghosts and goblins.

To create a festive fall table for Halloween, try our Haunted Hill Tableware Ensemble (pictured at right). The print on the tableware features a fall harvest-colored sky paired with a haunted cemetery scene. The smiling Jack O’Lanterns and skeleton, however, keep the design from being too spooky for kids. The Haunted Hill Tableware pattern is available in dinner plates, luncheon napkins, hot/cold cups, and invitations and coordinates well with our orange and purple cutlery.

The Haunted Hill Kit-N-Kaboodle includes plates, napkins, cups, invitations, cutlery, orange and purple balloons, an orange table cover and orange curling ribbon. The deluxe kit also includes a 10”x30” banner, a Jack O’Lantern mylar balloon, candles, and purple and orange streamers.

To begin your Haunted Hill table decorations, cover the table with an orange plastic table cover or with a spider web table roll. Adding a sprinkling of black star confetti or Spiders & Cobwebs Embossed Confetti.

In the middle of the table, place a Pumpkin and Ghost Cascade Centerpiece or a Sweet-Station Halloween Centerpiece for displaying festive Halloween baked goods. A great centerpiece makes your table decorations really pop!

Set the table with the Haunted Hill tableware and create cutlery bundles by wrapping the cutlery in the Haunted Hill napkins or in our fantastic personalized napkins with your party details printed right on them. Tie the bundles with coordinating curling ribbon or with milky way garland.

For a spooky dessert, try our Gory Brain Mold. Fill the mold with gelatin for a creepy dessert kids will get a kick out of.
