New for Halloween 2010: Door Topper Curtains

ShindigZ Party introduces 3 new door topper curtain designs for Halloween 2010. Each curtain is 10 feet long and 40” wide, and the top can be personalized with a line of text. The curtain itself is a wavy black metallic fringe.

  • The Beware Door Topper depicts a full moon and a raven overlooking a silhouetted cemetery in the distance.
  • The Tombstone Door Topper Curtain features a simple row of gothic-looking tombstones.
  • The Spiders Topper is a black background contrasted with neon spiders and webs. This design allows for 2 lines of personalized text.
  • A Halloween Door Topper Curtain is an affordable way to greet guests with your own message and add festivity and a bit of mystery to what lies beyond. Try coordinating a door topper with some of your other dance or party area materials such as black wavy metallic table skirts or our new Black Wavy Curtains, which can be used as background material for a stage or photo backdrop or function as a partial room divider.

    Our new designs join the awesome Spider Web Entrance and other fabulous Halloween Entrances such as arches and door accents. Be sure to check out what we have for door, and other Halloween décor in our online catalogs.

    Haunting Halloween Decorations: Harvest Moon & Spooky 3D Tree Standees

    If we were to pick out what we consider to be Halloween decorating “staples,” two of them would be the Harvest Moon and our Spooky 3D Tree Standees because they’re highly adaptable to many Halloween themes.

    Of course, a harvest or full moon can carry you through fall festivals, homecoming and barn dances all the way to the Halloween events. Choose a moon according to the size of your party space. The moon available with the Spooktacular Cemetery is a generous 44” but for really large venues and to scale with other very large decorations, select our 8’ Harvest Moon Decoration.

    “Moon” your flying witches, werewolf- or zombie-infested woods, haunted cemeteries and any sort of ghost, monster or bat themes. Let it “glow” orange-ly on its own, or allow it to peek out from behind one of our Haunted House Cardboard Cutouts or the Graveyard Silhouette.

    This is where the Spooky 3D Tree Standees come in! Place these freestanding cardboard trees in front of your moon for an eerie forest effect, on either side of your haunted mansion or scattered throughout the cemetery. Available in wonderfully big 6’ and 8’ sizes, they will add great ambience and dimensionality to your decorating scheme whether used as is or embellished in a deliciously wicked way of your choosing.

    We hope you’ll find your own perfect way to incorporate a Harvest Moon and Spooky 3D Tree Standees into your Halloween decorating scheme. If so, we’d love to see a photo here, or on our Halloween Party Supplies pages!

    Set the Scene with Halloween Insta-Theme Decorations

    Transform an ordinary room or garage into a haunted locale with ShindigZ Party’s Halloween Insta-Theme large wall decorations, seen at right. It’s a great way to cover large areas affordably and flexibly for parties or for trick-or-treat.

    In three shakes of a newt’s tail you can attach a not-overly-scary Graveyard Backdrop, Spooky Sky Backdrop, or Creepy Fence Border – or any combination of the 3! Each is a wall mural printed on plastic that can be attached to walls with pins or a removable adhesive. The Graveyard and Spooky Sky are each 4’ high and 30’ long. The fence is 24” tall and 30’ long, and printed on a clear plastic so you can view whatever lies behind it.

    Insta-Theme also offers props you can attach to the backdrop(s). Customize the setting with a haunted house, gothic witch, skeletons, ghosts and other Peel ‘N Place extras.

    Check out each individual backdrop and prop set by clicking on the Party View 360 icon next to each item listing on the Insta-Theme catalog page.

    Once the Halloween Insta-Theme pieces are in place, we’d suggest festooning the ceiling with deep purple and black streamers along with skull or ghost tissue garland, lighting up your best Jack ‘O Lanterns with battery-operated flickering LED tealights, and filling the Inflatable Witch’s Cauldron Cooler with treats. Got other ideas? Let us know. We love to hear from you!
