Halloween is right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited about this fun holiday. We love seeing pumpkins on almost every stoop and fun costumes parading around town.

Treats for all
Although we may not be into the tricks this time of year, we’ve certainly got you covered when it comes to the treats!

Halloween is a time to let your creativity loose.  You can get creative with your costumes, your pumpkin carving and decorating your house. Here at Ashley’s, we like to get creative with all of our sweets. Our creations cover everything from ghoulish and gory to fun and festive – perfect for sharing with family and friends this holiday!

Pick up some fun cookies to share with coworkers. Nothing will get the office in the spooky spirit like Halloween sugar cookies. We can do monsters, ghosts, pumpkins or a variety pack of all three. Give us a call and we can have them all set for you to pick up on your way to work Halloween morning. 

Surprise the family with fun cupcakes. Sure, your little ones will get plenty of sugar from their trick-or-treating haul, but why not celebrate the season with our cupcakes? We have really fun designs and while they may look too cool to eat, we promise the family will enjoy digging in before heading out to hit up the neighborhood. 

Speaking of the neighborhood, do you have a stash of special treats you share with kids in the neighborhood? This year, pass out some of our Halloween cake pops to the little ghosts and goblins that show up at your door. Trust us – your house will be the favorite on the block! 

DIY costume ideas
We can help cover the sweets, for sure, but what about the costumes?

If your calendar is anything like ours, it’s been pretty packed lately with all kinds of activities and events, and you may be racing to put together a costume. We know Amazon can be fast, but just in case you can’t find anything, here are five simple costume ideas – and you may just have all of the items around the house already!

  • Lumberjack. Grab a flannel shirt and a pair of jeans, add a beanie and a toy ax and you’re ready to go. 
  • Black cat. Black leggings, black shirt, add a pair of kitten ears and use an eyeliner pencil to add some whiskers to your cheeks. All set!
  • LEGO block. Transform a large cardboard box into a Lego block. Glue on plastic or Styrofoam bowls and spray paint it all one color. Cut holes for each arm and your head, and you’re a walking toy building block.
  • Where’s Waldo? All you need is a red and white striped tee shirt, a pair of jeans and a red hat and you’ve got a costume. 
  • Scarecrow. Here’s an easy one – throw on a flannel shirt and some overalls and tuck some straw or yellow felt in the cuffs. Add some face paint if you want to kick it up a notch. 

We hope you have a fun, safe, and Happy Halloween!
