Fall is here! Time to Glitter up the Pumpkins!

Halloween_craftsIt’s funny how Halloween has become such a large event for families. I can remember as a kid how we wore the cheap costumes, with the plastic face mask with the cheap rubber bands that broke by the second trick-or treat stop.

Now, it’s hand made costumes, big parties and much more of a whole family277863249_d77b6da53c_3
event. That’s good! One of the things we also noticed (call it a trend I guess) is the burst of orange glass glitter sales in late September and October. I put on my
Private Investigator Hat
and realized that Glass Glitter Pumpkins were quite the rage. We had one customer create 50 Glittered Pumpkins as a centerpiece for a wedding they were planning.

That’s a lot of Glitter Pumpkins!
