Default Are you doing anything special for Halloween?

I was just wondering if any of you guys did anything special for Halloween with your candles biz.

I found these cute pumpkin candy molds that I am going to melting some wax into and hand out as samples.....NOT to the kiddos of course!!! I would hand them out to my friends and family.

Is anyone else going to do anything?

Btw, if anyone is interested or has been wondering about SoyLicious and would like to receiving one of my little pumpkins (scent - Moon Petals) please pm me and I can send it out to you but you have to promise not to eat it..lol!

I had not thought about it too much but that is a great idea Laura. With it being breast cancer awareness month I have partnered with several of our local businesses to display our 3 Awareness candles along with a drawing for a free one.

Not Halloween but another idea...

For Halloween I always prepare small cellphane bags with lots of candy for the kids. This ensures that I don't give some kids more than others. This year I am also preparing small bags for the moms too. They will include a votive or two tealights, business card, business opportunity postcard, and a hard piece of candy.

Some Fall/Halloween ideas I've been using that have really helped my sales - I make a trip to the Dollar Store - like Dollar Tree. They had these adorable little ceramic jackolaterns - and I used them to float tealights in them and I used them a door prize drawing.

Another Idea - I filled some holders with Candy Corn - and the guest all had to guess how many were in them (thanks Claire!)....A great icebreaker.

I also purchased some really cute Coffee Mugs (for $1) that were primitive snowman type - and plan to use them closer to Christmas using our Cafe scents to float in them and use for door prizes. With the Mugs I can include a Candle Lighter, a Wick Dipper and a tealight or votive - It's a great Gift and I plan to make a lot to sell for cash and carry for festivals and fairs!

The Dollar Store has been great for ideas and inspiration!
