How to Throw a Glittery Halloween Party

Not all Halloween decorations need to be ghoulish. Incorporating a pop of glittery sparkle on your Halloween décor adds a touch of sophistication that all your party guests will appreciate.

Irresistible Glitter Pumpkins

diy-glitter-pumpkins-mainEvery fall-themed party must start with a wide selection of glittered pumpkins, gourds, or squash. Make them the center of your holiday table, tuck them to the side of your doorstep, or arrange them on the hearth. A be-glittered real pumpkin will last through both Halloween and Thanksgiving, while a fake one will last for many seasons.

 

Surprises at Every Turnglitter bats

The best part of Halloween is the unexpected. To give your guests a surprise at every turn, consider hanging flying bats or even displaying these spooky witch legs crafted by fabsspiritcentral.

A coating of light reflecting black glitter brings your bats to life as they bob and fly in the breeze and stripes of red glitter give your witch’s stockings their characteristic evil look but with a touch of class.

Boo-tiful Decorations

Take the “boo” factor up a notch with scary décor for your table and walls. Black cats, ghost cupcake toppers, and even a witch’s caldron look all that more festive when accented with a touch of glitter.

Sometimes you need a little extra something to bump up your orange quota. For this exact need, head to our miniatures section for doll-house sized orange fruits, traffic cones, or even ceramic mushrooms. To fill out the edges of your orange inspired craft project, how about a little curly German orange lametta, because you can never have too much orange.

Like all our Mica Flitter Flake products, these earth-tone flakes owe their radiant color to both natural and manmade sources. Appropriate for a variety of applications, this color is permanent and will not bleed if mixed with glues or solvents.

Mica flakes are non-toxic and safe for use in art, craft and decorative projects. Popular uses include decorative paper products, paint, glass arts, textiles, and much more.

Indulge Your Pumpkin Spice Obsession with Glitter

A Meyer Imports’ exclusive, our pumpkin spice glitter medley is made from finely ground real German glass glitter that is silver coated for extra sparkle. This glitter blend incorporates the lovely hues of orange, light brown, and copper for a mix that is uniquely fall. Over time, a beautiful patina ages the colors, giving it an authentic vintage glass glitter look.

Add a little pumpkin spice love to all your autumn crafts from seasonal décor to tablescapes, greeting cards, candles and more. Like all our real German glass glitters, pumpkin spice glitter is available in a 1-ounce “pinch pot”, as well as 4 or 8-ounce bags.

If you give a mouse a cookie

1641_b.jpg_20170518102714aWhy do we do this?  Why do we work so hard to stock thousands of products, that are so niche, so outside of the normal mass market? Why do we focus on only working with small manufacturers in Europe, that do not have distribution (at all) except through us?  Why do we deal with customs, exchange rates, VAT, transport delays and the huge investment in inventory that we hold?

Because, somewhere today a child is opening a box and getting to read a story, play a game with friends (or better yet, their parents) and in that game is a little mouse. A mouse that started life in a family run factory in Germany, made it across the ocean to us, who then moved it to Primary Concepts, who then assembled him into a great activity for kids.

1641_b.jpg_20170518102714I know I could write this blog post with a thousand other examples of our products being bundled into products from Disney, Neiman Marcus, thousands of independent designers and artists and even Apple (look at the Apple store floor, really carefully the next time you are shopping for an iPhone. Yep – Meyer Imports Glitter).

But our little mouse is the most impressive to me. He is such a hardy little fellow, he has travelled so far, left all his little mice buddies and his mouse family to become part of some childs’ world, who will never know the “rest of the story” on this little fellow.

Thanks Primary Concepts for being such a great customer and for giving our mice a path into the hearts of children everywhere!
