I was amazed at how generous this gift box was! Kate told me she would send me a personalized assortment of products and she really got it right! These items are perfect for someone like me who has an annual witch themed party. Especially since there will be an added skeleton theme to the party this year. The title of each of these products is linked to its store listing, if you're interested.
There was a bag of 12 mini-skulls:
They might work well sitting in a decorative bowl or scattered on the table.
A cute 12" skeleton along with a black, straw-like pumpkin. It's difficult to see in this picture, but the pumpkin is covered in black glitter. The glitter catches the light in a really pretty way.
This pile of bones is one of those things I probably wouldn't think to buy, but I love them! They're actual size bones and heavy. They're really good quality. It's not like I have any experience with the real thing, but this is just what I imagine them to be like. These bones might be part of the centerpiece for this year's party.
There was a giant spider in the box, complete with a web and mini spiders! This creepy crawler tarantula is one of those spiders with bendable legs, so it can be posed around.
The Beware, Spooky, and Boo wall pieces stand on their own. I think these are called wall pieces because they could stand on a shelf.
A perfect witchy bottle:
I'm planning to use this as a vase and place a bouquet of fake autumn leaves in it.
I received six luminaries designed by Bethany Lowe. I'm familiar with her stuff, but I didn't know she made luminaries! They've got this cool, Victorian thing going on. They also conveniently fit with the witch and skeleton theme for this year's party! I actually never told Kate about the party themes, so her choices are pretty astonishing.
This is what the luminaries look like from above. They come as flat pieces of vellum that you curve into a cylindrical shape.
I took some photos of the luminaries in the dark to show what they look like lit up.
I haven't messed around with this haunted cloth yet, but it looks like you can tear and stretch it to decorate doorways, tabletops, etc.
Here's some of it rumpled up under the pile of bones:
My absolute favorite item in the box was this toad:
The toad has a spongy foam-filled belly, which somehow adds to his authentic appearance.
I had to photograph him in his outdoor environment! Doesn't he look natural there?
His warty, decorative back:
One of his detailed, little toad hands:
Isn't he cool? A big, full-sized, very realistic, warty toad! I can't wait to dress him up for the party! He's a fitting witches' familiar. This toad might look cool posed with the broom/cauldron/witch shoe display that goes up every year.
I'm sure you guys will be seeing all these goodies in this year's party pics!
P.S. ~ I'm planning on putting together another blog party this year! I'd like to see all of you there. If you have a photo of yourself in costume from any time in your life, please send it to me and I'll include you! You can email your photos to this address:
