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!’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.

How To Be The “Cool House” That Trick-or-Treaters Love!


kidsfav1 How To Be The Cool House That Trick or Treaters Love! wanted to learn more about the candy that would be filling the adorable and popular treat bags that our customers keep talking about this Halloween, so they started doing some homework.

After looking through information from the U.S. Census Bureau and the National Confectioners Association, they compiled a list of fun facts about Halloween Candy Consumption that we thought you’d like. They wanted to know what type of candy kids like most, what types of candy kids were receiving, and what they do with it after they’re done trick or treating.

As you can see by the above graphic, the next most popular candies are lollipops with 9% of the vote then gummy candy and chewing gum round out the bottom with 7% of the vote each.

So it looks like if you want to give out the best treats and not get any tricks, don’t forget the chocolate this year!

If you’ve always wanted to be the “cool house” on the street that the kids always run to first, personalize the Ghostly Greetings© Custom Candy Bar Wrappers for your treats and you’ll be the talk of the neighborhood between kids and parents alike!

Well those parents wouldn’t have to feel guilty about dipping into their own stash if they personalize our Halloween Candy Bowl because instead of kids being disappointed that it looks like there’s no candy left, they’ll be excited about the hidden design on the inside of the bowl (see picture)!

But the Halloween bowl doesn’t have to just be for candy, you can use it all October long! You can host a Halloween party and use it as a punch bowl or to hold chips, or if you’re planning on attending a party you can always give it as a hostess gift – the bowl would look beautiful just as a display piece because of the hidden design! The chic black and orange design makes it the perfect Halloween acessory no matter how you use it!
