oh my gosh… I designed that paper for DCWV. A bit of a shock to get on this site (which I visit regularly) and see my stuff. I love love love the way it was used. YAY!

Sarah Dennis SAYS:

Jenn, I love your use of the skull and crossbone motif, not to overdone, just the perfect touch.
I’m linking to this post! I love it!

My favorite theme is “Ghoul’s Night”; but I think they all are terrific.

Thanks for the inspiration.

That is too funny! I’m so glad you liked the way it was used – we absolutely loved the paper design over here :) DCWV is such a great brand!

Your site is possibly the best ever. These decorations are amazing!!! Where did you find this stuff?! I went all over the internet and could hardly find a thing! I have to link to you!

the mrs. –

Thanks so much for the sweet comment! I found everything here and in our other 2 themes at a variety of places – but the main 3 were Party City, Michael’s, and Target.

If you check out the full party themes in the Halloween section of, there are product resources listed on each theme with direct links on where to buy a lot of the items. The only thing I don’t love about that setup is that, because I found a lot of this stuff in-store, for some reason it’s not always available at the same stores online. That being the case, we had to find other websites that do carry the various products in order to be able to list a resource for everything – which means there are several different places to go instead of a one-stop-shop.

So our hope is that everyone can find what they need for the most part in-store and avoid having to pay multiple shipping fees, and if there are just a few things they’re having trouble finding, then they can at least order those items online because a resource is already listed – instead of having to search all over the place, whether it be in-store or online!

Hope that overly wordy answer helps ;)

Happy Halloween!
