Halloween Teal - a seasonal spin on vibrant blue-green - gives a whimsical pop of color to decor and also promotes inclusive trick-or-treating (more on that to come). Its bright hue goes beautifully with traditional orange and black, ghostly white, or a deep witchy purple. Put a fun twist on spooky style with Halloween's new signature shade.
A key element of gracious hostin, during Halloween or any other time, is providing guests with plenty of choices. Whereas it's considered courteous, even custmonary, for adults with special diets to contribute their own dish to a dinner party, it would hardly be fair (and definitely not fun!) to place a bring-your-own-treats expectation on the little ones. Be a neighborhood superhero - custume optional - and endear yourself to parents of kids with food sensitivities. The way to let trick-or-treaters know that you offer both a candy treat and a non-food alternative is Halloween teal.Be it by painting a pumpkin or adorning your Halloween characters with this eye-catching color, it signals to parents and littles alike that there's plenty of fun for all!
Here are 10 popular non-food treats to put next to the candy bowl:
- Miniature Slinkies
- Whistles, kazoos, or noisemakers
- Bouncy balls
- Finger puppets or novelty toys
- Costume jewelry, such as spider rings
- Vampire fangs
- Playing cards
- Glowing toys or light up jewelry* (Bonus: these help make the littles more visible after nightfall.)
