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.
How cute is this card? NOW I want to send one to my friends.
And one more.
Leave it up to the Saturday Evening Post to give you the warm and fuzzies, even during the scariest time of the year.
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?
Looking for that perfect vintage item for you Halloween party today? How about this 1950’s Paper Jack O Lantern that is double-faced and can shine from either side. COOL!
Need some Halloween Costume ideas? Inspiration from 1924.
In the 1930s you could have gone as a Gypsy. Still a great option even for today.
I just adore all of these Spanish style costume ideas from the 1940s.
And of course you cannot expect Liz the lover of Vintage images to not share a couple of gems I found, so here they are (they are good ones).
Winner for the best pumpkin…THIS FAMILY!
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?
