With Halloween only a day away, make sure your house is all set for trick-or-treaters and any parties you have planned. ABCey has gathered 5 easy DIY’s that you can add last minute to make sure your decorations are top notch!

1. Pumpkins | You may not have time to carve pumpkins anymore, but we love the simple idea of painting your pumpkins or drilling holes in them to use with candles! Both take little effort and time and look great!

2. Candles | These ghoulish candles make for the perfect party accents and are so easy! All you have to do is light a candle and when the wax melts, let it drip over another one and ta da!

3. Banners | These banners are super easy and look great draped over a table or a staircase! We love the eyeball one made with just paper!

4. Treats | These crowd pleasing favorites are a safe go-to. Our favorite is the ghostly strawberries! For the Muddie Buddies, just use colored chocolate chips to get that Halloween vibe!

and for the finishing touch…

5.  Floating Ghosts | These decorations look high end but are so easy to recreate and only take a few supplies.

How To Use Products As Event Decor

Getting ready to launch a new product? A product launch is a critical time for an early stage company and if products aren’t properly launched, companies can’t generate revenues, growth, or even survive in todays dynamic economy. Today, there are great pressures to be more competitive and profitable, so solid launches are even more critical. ABCey has gathered 5 of our favorite events that have made the best use out of their products! 

1. Bridgestone | For the 2010 Superbowl, Bridgestone used it’s tires and stacked them to create tables at the ESPN the Magazine Next Big Weekend party.

2. Jameson | During the Northside Festival this June, whiskey brand, Jameson, hosted the Black Barrel Lounge and decorated the space with chandeliers made from deconstructed flame-charred Jameson Black barrels.

3. Clinique | Clinique celebrated it’s Dramatically Different lotion at an event  by creating a hallway for guests to enter through that was lined with more than 4,000 bottles of the 45-year-old, award winning lotion. 

4. Mattel | For Barbie’s 50th anniversary, Mattel created a real life version of the doll’s Malibu Dream House with a huge wall of Barbie dolls.
