witch 273x300 Quick & Easy Halloween Decorating TipsSince an A Personal Touch blog post wouldn’t be complete without some inspiration from Pinterest we wanted to share this funny photo (at left) that we came across the other day.

We’ve seen “crashed witches” before but we were really impressed (and couldn’t stop laughing) when we saw the “Don’t Text and Fly” warning sign these people hung up on their front porch. We love the originality they added to the decoration and the good message it sends out to trick or treaters of all ages!

But our love of original decorations doesn’t stop there!

PMall.com’s Personalized Halloween Gifts Store has a wide selection of cute and creepy gifts that will help your front door stand out from the rest of the neighborhood this Halloween.

hauntedhouseyardstake Quick & Easy Halloween Decorating TipsThe Haunted House Personalized Yard Stake can be personalized with any 2-line message and is a great way to show everyone where the party’s at!

The best thing about our yard stakes are that the signs are actually magnets so it’s the gift that keeps on giving. You only have to buy the yard stake once then you can check out all of our other Personalized Yard Stake Magnets and personalize a different design to use for each holiday, season, birthday or more!

When your guests spot your yard stake they’ll know they’ve come to the right place and as they head to your door they’ll love being welcomed by Personalized Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkins that you can display right on your front porch! jackolanterns Quick & Easy Halloween Decorating TipsThese realistic pumpkins come in a large and small size and can be personalized with any title, first or family name.

You can personalize a large pumpkin with your family name, create a small one for each of your family members or any combination you can come up with! In addition to the jack-o-lantern design, the pumpkins can also be personalized to display “Happy Halloween,” any first or family names, initials and more as you can see in our Halloween Decorations and Accessories Department. Any of the designs that you pick will look great and (unlike real pumpkins) you’ll be able to use them for many years to come!
