Nobody can avoid the fact that this Saturday is Halloween! How fun! I love this holiday as I know many of you do as well. My husband and I are going out with some friends to a party and I can’t wait to see what everyone is wearing (follow me on Instagram to see what my costume is this year).

For today’s post, I decided to do a post with a mishmash of Halloween “things” to get you in the spirit of the day and maybe possibly help you out with last-minute ideas on whatever you’re looking for.

Let the Halloween Roundup Party Begin!

First up, every vintage Halloween loving gal (or guy) needs a broom brooch. This is not yet a pin but with one quick fix that can change.

Brooms not your thing. How about black cats with hats?

Everywhere you look Halloween advertising is all around you, here is a small selection of some vintage ones I found.

(p.s. last year I did a post on vintage Halloween candy advertising HERE).

Vintage Halloween Cards. Do you send Halloween cards to friends and family? I know I don’t and I don’t believe I have ever received one either.

I really wish the below pamphlet was intact as I would have loved to have heard the suggestions on how to run a successful 1946 Halloween party.

Here is a fantastic image from the 1940s on what could be found in a store around Halloween to help decorate for your party. Not too much has changed has it?

In the 1930s you could have gone as a Gypsy. Still a great option even for today.

And with that image we have come to the end of the Halloween Roundup Party because I have to run off and finish my costume. Enjoy your Halloween friends!

But one last item..Question Time: Will you be going out for Halloween? And if so as what?

  1. Awesomely lovely post!!! The marriage of Halloween + vintage always puts me over the roof on the happiness front. Great idea about making brooches from those delightful metal charms. I really want one now. 🙂

    Tony and I will both be dressing up and I’ll be sharing our costumes on my blog next week.

    Wishing you guys a stellar All Hallows’ Eve weekend!!!!!!
