Says the furry lion’s mom, “This is our little one’s first Halloween, and I received his costume the night before his 9-month picture. As soon as I saw the proofs I knew I needed to share our little lion with our family and friends. The BOO card was perfect—simple and clean.”

Real cards created by real people like you!

Halloween photo cardWhen our customer, Lindsey, decided to take a photo of her son in his new Halloween costume, she was a little worried about getting him to cooperate. “I didn’t think that my son would actually keep the costume on long enough for me to take this photo.” But using a little mom-genuity, she came up with a great idea. “The wagon was a distraction to get him to focus on something else other the big ears, fuzzy feet and long tail. The wagon is a new toy for him (an awesome hand-me-down from his two cousins in Seattle, WA) and since he hasn’t quite figured out how to use it as a walker yet, he likes climbing into and sitting in it.” Great photo? Check.

Next on the list was looking for Halloween card ideas. Lindsey says, “I was looking at several websites for a photo card that was modern, clean and simple – yet fun and really highlighted the photo – and Pear Tree Greetings was the only site that had options that worked for what I was looking for.” Excellent choice, Lindsey, with our Striped Halloween Greeting Halloween photo cards. And we love that your photo is black and white, which makes the card the perfect Halloween-y combination of black and orange.

You may not have thought about sending out Halloween photo cards, but as Lindsey will tell you, “it’s a fun way to send family members a recent photo and certainly is a nice memento to have that shows my son’s growth over his first year. Thanksgiving and Christmas cards are next!”

Go batty with Halloween party ideas

Batty Eyes invitationEveryone loves a good Halloween Party and they’ll be thrilled to come to yours when they see this Bat Eyes Beware Halloween invitation in the mail. Our friends at celebrations.com used our Halloween invitation to inspire these bat theme Halloween party ideas that are family friendly, “frightfully fun and not overdone.” The invitation (and we have several Halloween invitations to choose from) inspired the Halloween party ideas, from bat decorations to fang-embellished cupcakes to vampire mocktails.

At the table, spooky bat shapes and bat eyes decorated the placemats, drink glasses and serving trays. Black napkins and black & white polka dots added to the décor, with yellow and orange candycorn used as accent colors.Halloween Party decorations

Marshmallow fangs and beady cherry eyes turned red velvet cupcakes into vampires for dessert. And for beverages, guests could choose their potion: either blood-red mocktails made from crushed jolly ranchers, cherry 7-Up and red Twizzlers, or a black-licorice infused version. But it wouldn’t be a party without blindfolds and jello, now would it? Fun activities like the classic Mummy Wrap game and the Lucky Dip game for kids made the party a huge hit.

Halloween Trick or Treating Tips!

Halloween will soon be here. Are you ready? I think this year might be my last year of being able to stay home, hand out candy and relax. I feel I’ll be a nervous wreck next year when my son will actually be old enough to go trick-or-treating. Will he be warm enough? Do I really let him eat all of that candy? Should he eat any of that candy? Will he even enjoy or understand trick-or-treating?

Normally I’m not this paranoid…I think I’m just coming to terms with my baby being all grown up! Must be tiime for another…ha.

We have two moms on our Pear Tree Greetings team who have children that are old enough to trick-or-treat, so I asked them for a few of their trick or treating tips.

-Tell your child that you’re worried they won’t be able to carry all of their candy in one bag so you need to make a pit stop at home to get a new bag. That way, the spouse that isn’t out trick-or-treating can sort through the candy and possibly lighten their load.

-Even if your child is beyond nap age…try to sneak one in on Halloween afternoon. The evening will be more enjoyable for all!

-Give your older children a flashlight or glow necklace so they are easily seen at night.

-Try to stay within familiar neighborhoods.

-ENJOY every moment, take LOTS of pictures and definitely let them have at least a few pieces of candy…

These are pretty basic trick or treating tips, but if this is your first year doing it, it’s always good to hear from the experts. If you have any other tips, we’d love to hear your comments! And for more Halloween ideas, keep reading our blog!
