You can find excellent Halloween decorations anywhere, but if you want to take it up a notch from plastic to fantastic, then we suggest checking outAcme Party Box Company - one of our favorite stores for parties and decorating. From decorative buntings, coordinating table runners, cloth napkins and charming party favors, you can find everything you need for a party minus the food and the guests. All the items have a vintage feel to them, almost home-made, but created perfectly. Kind of like if Martha Stewart designed your party. But, if you want to say you made it all yourself, I won't tell.
Acme offers a couple different options for Halloween buntings, but I like the contemporary Chocolate Tangerine Bunting. Without actually saying "Halloween," this sophisticated bunting still says without being overly in-your-face festive ($36).
This delightful little crepe-paper pumpkin is a Harvest Surprise Ball. Each pumpkin contains ten tiny surprises. How perfect they would look in a basket as a center piece or beside each plate at the table. ($18 for each pumpkin).
No party, for kids or adults, is complete without a favor bag. Give your guests a real treat in these charming Chocolate Tangerine Favor Bags. (Four bags for $16)
These adorable Halloween Paper Crowns are so festive and fun. They are perfect for the grown-up who arrives at the party without a costume who can still look cool and ready to celebrate. Four different crowns come in a pack. ($16)
Of course, everything at Acme Party Box costs a little more than the paper and plastic stuff, but at least you can save it for the next year and many more after that.
