Halloween made easy at gather

Daisy McClellanComment

Here at gather we love the holidays and Halloween is our favorite. Let us make it easy for you - here are our tips to make this one a total breeze so you can focus on having fun!

Gather your girl gang and arrive in style at your friend's Halloween bash as a fruit salad with these adorable hand printed tops and dresses by Jenny Lemons. You can choose from strawberries, watermelons, lemons, and bananas. Each garment is made with natural and organic fabrics and is block printed individually by the artist, making each piece unique. And when Halloween is over, your fruit costume doesn't need to hit storage! Pair it with skinny jeans and you have a brand new whimsical (and totally wearable) outfit for the rest of the season.

You can also embrace your spirit animal with these handmade masks by Dawn Kathryn Studios. Transform yourself into an inquisitive owl, a sly fox, or a cheetah that’s ready to pounce. Pair it was a simple top and leggings and you are set for the night! Read: Easiest. Costume. Ever. Masks fit both children and adults.

Heading to a party and you don’t like to come empty handed? Neither do we! Arrive with a couple of Hot Spice Wine and Cider Kits by Saffron + Kumquats and you’ll be sure to be the hit of the party! Each kit includes a recipe and supplies for three batches and comes in a resusable mason jar.  Pair it with Boo card by new vendor Paper Raven Co and your gift is complete!

Want to celebrate Halloween but not in the mood to wear a costume? This orange and yellow triangle patterned blouse by Oakland designer Desiree Salas is a great alternative. We paired it with a new denim skirt from Margarette Laizure. Add your favorite boots and you've got the the perfect outfit to take your kids trick or treating. This blouse is available in both short sleeve or ¾ sleeve.

Trick or Treat? We choose TREAT! We at gather like to treat ourselves to luxury chocolate bars by Compartes. Each flavor is packed full of yummy goodness, from to oreo cookies to Hazelnut Toast! Now that's the way to do Halloween!

Come visit us Halloween weekend for more tips and tricks! We'll be serving up hot cider and dishing out candy!
