The blogosphere has tons of great information to help you have an awesome Halloween. We gathered five of the coolest Halloween blogs so you can make your Halloween as creative and memorable as possible. Check them out and have a great time scaring and entertaining your friends!
My Ghoul Friday is a great blog for finding creative haunting ideas, “Halloween props and countless creepy pop culture discoveries”. They have awesome sections on projects, tutorials and party ideas which included a directory of fully downloadable files of Halloween party signs and labels that will have your guests howling.
A Nostalgic Halloween is an amazing blog that focuses on vintage artwork, photographs and crafts that fit under the Halloween or haunting themes. If you’re looking for decoration or design ideas (let’s say you want to make an amazing invite for this year’s party) this is a great place to turn to for inspiration. We especially liked their Trick or Treat Clown piece and the photo of the old school pirate costume below.
Halloween Fun is great resource for ideas for activities, crafts and party planning around Halloween. Even better, it hosts several Halloween themed online games for kids (or kids at heart!) to get them excited for Halloween, or just keep them busy while you’re decorating your house!
We really enjoyed their article on a smart phone app that uses GPS to keep an eye on your kids while they’re trick or treating. Very cool stuff!
Frightcatalog.com has a great blog that it updates regularly and has lots of great info on all things Halloween. We specifically loved their post on the best Halloween Parties which is a great read if you’re looking to travel to some of the world’s coolest Halloween parties or just want some ideas to make your own party that much better.
Here at Smiley Cookie, we’ll be featuring our famous Jack O Lantern Gourmet sugar cookies and all of our other Halloween cookie gifts to help scare up some smiles from your guests and trick and Trick or Treaters.
Teen Earns Seat as Sophmore Class Treasurer with Help from Smileycookie.com
ONLEY, Md., Oct. 29
Evan Schwartz, 15, may not be running for a seat in the senate, or campaigning for congress, but he knows getting voters attention during election season begins with putting a smile on constituents’ faces- 25 dozen to be exact.
Schwartz passed out 300 Smiley Cookies to his classmates during his campaign for sophomore class treasurer at Sherwood High School in Olney, MD, encouraging them to vote. His idea to order from SmileyCookie.com made a bold statement alongside his candy-giving running mates.
“Everyone loved the Smiley Cookies from SmileyCookie.com. I got a great response from my friends and teachers, and people are already talking about my campaign next year,” said Schwartz, who plans to order from SmileyCookie.com again when he runs for Sherwood High School’s Student Government Association as a junior.
Pittsburgh-based Eat’n Park, a family dining restaurant chain with locations in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia, made the Smiley Cookie famous over the last two decades and recently expanded their availability through SmileyCookie.com. The Schwartz family learned about the cookies thanks to visits from relatives in Pittsburgh, who brought Smiley Cookies to family events.
SmileyCookie.com conveniently delivers gourmet Smiley Cookies fast and fresh to all 50 states. A line of cookie gift baskets is available for virtually every occasion, including birthdays, get well, thank you,Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day, with cookies taking the shape of jack-o-lanterns, Christmas trees, holiday stars, hearts, shamrocks, and bunnies.
Custom, or personalized, cookies can be ordered in a variety of colors. A dozen Smiley Cookies start out at $11.99, plus shipping. Each gift order is backed by a 100 percent guarantee and all of their gourmet sugar cookies are nut free, kosher and trans fat-free.
It’s difficult to say if the cookies were pivotal in his win, but this is the second year he has passed out Smiley Cookies and emerged victorious. Last year, Schwartz used Smiley Cookies to campaign for freshman class treasurer. They were so well liked that he ordered twice as many during this year’s run for office.
“Politicians running for government positions in Washington, DC, or Maryland, could take a cue from Evan,” said Robyn Schwartz, Evan’s mother. “When he discovered the same fresh-baked Smiley Cookies available at Eat’n Park restaurants could be ordered online, he thought it would be a great way to get voters’ attention at school.”

Even if you don’t participate in a religious abstinence, you may be staying strong with your New Year’s resolution to eat fewer sweets. Good for you! Reward yourself with a day off, too. One cookie won’t subtract from your diet, and it will add a smile to your face. Or your co-workers!

May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
