2016 gave us some great costume worthy movies. Think Tarzan, Ghost Busters, Suicide Squad, Captain America, and even Louise's outfits from Me Before You. We searched through various halloween costume sites and were disappointed to find several 2016 hit movie characters' costumes failed to make it into warehouses. But don't worry! We have taken the time to comb through hundreds of products and have gathered various combinations to fit the costumes of some of our favorite movie characters. Continue Reading →
Since there has been such an outpouring of delight with our Great Gatsby Roaring 20's inspired Halloween costumes, we are delighted to bring you some fresh roaring 20s party dresses which would be perfect for an elegant Gatsby inspired New Year's Eve Party. All of these dresses are reasonably priced. In fact the Anna-Kaci flapper dresses are all priced well under $50.00, the only rub being that Anna-Kaci dresses are pretty much designed for small gals. So if you are average or plus sized be sure to check out Modcloth – they offer a wide range of sizes from extra small to 4x. Continue Reading →
This month we have posted lots of Halloween party looks including some pretty fabulous & unique costumes, accessories, and even make-up tutorials, but somehow we have neglected Halloween nail art. Remember to truly party pretty you need to be polished from head to toe (and yes, pun intended.) So when we received this new Halloween nail art tutorial from Julep using colors from their Happy Halloween Welcome Boxes, we had to share. Just an FYI >> You can get this 4-piece beauty box featuring a trio of spooky polishes and a gel eye glider for FREE when you join the Julep beauty box subscription. Be sure to use code BOO!

Wear Outfits, Not Costumes
Just today we received an email from Shopstyle announcing that outfits rather than costumes are 2015's hottest Halloween trend. We wanted to scream – told you so! Every Halloween we feature real life clothes that can be dressed up for Halloween and then worn again throughout the year.
For example a must own little black dress like the one featured below, and available in sizes xs – 4x, can be paired with black cat bags, headbands, shoes, jewelry and cat face paint. And then after Halloween you can continue to wear the dress and all the accessories, just not all together.
At this time of year, we are all about ghoulish green here at PartyIdeaPros. Today, however, the green we are referring to is the eco-friendly kind. We bring our own bags wherever we shop. And we always highly recommended gifting re-usable totes filled with goodies as welcome bags for your out of town guests. So we did not think it was over the top crazy when we happened upon MomMeMatch‘s suggestion of using Halloween to create a new family tradition of matching re-usable trick-or-treat bags like so many families do with Christmas stockings.
The whole notion of families pulling out their matching family trick-or-treat bags each Halloween and taking an annual family Halloween photo is just #toocute for words especially if you are all dressed in Mommy, Daddy & Me Matching Halloween Costumes. Plus, even if you do not buy in to the whole matching family thing, investing in cute re-usable Halloween trick-or treat bags will model eco-friendly behavior for your children. Continue Reading →
