~*Spooky Season at SPP*~

We absolutely love Halloween at Steel Petal Press so we take every opportunity to dress up the store AND ourselves to celebrate.

A new (and best) season calls for an incredible window display! This year we decided to go with a Halloween-inspired design. We thought bats were the perfect visual element to use and added some purple
string lights to “up” the eeriness at night!

The seasonal section was decked out in Halloween gear from top to bottom! A few product themes we stocked up on this year?:
dark occult, mystic cats, and creepy skulls.

Last, but not least, COSTUMES! We truly love a good costume – I mean, who doesn’t? Every year, we like to try and come up with a great group costume for everyone to wear who works at the store on Halloween. Last year, we landed on the 3 blind mice for the 3 ladies of SPP and it was super well received! Although a lot of people thought we were a
weird mouse version of the Robert Palmer girls, LOL!
