DIY Halloween Decor & Treats Thanks To CVS Pharmacy!

Hey All!

I don’t know about you, but I’m literally obsessed with the show Stranger Things. Like obsessed is an understatement. We’re so obsessed with it, that we decided to make it the theme of our Halloween party and decor this year. I knew in order to capture everything in the show, I had to make some DIY decor and decorations for our home. I immediately knew I wanted to make a Stranger Things inspired blanket. I want to have a blanket to snuggle up under when we watch season 2 when it comes on. Thankfully, CVS Photo was just the place to make my blanket dreams come true! This is such a amazing partnership, as I love CVS Pharmacy! It’s the best and I’m not just saying that because I live down the block from one! CVS Photo has a bunch of customizable home decor items that you can make into personalized home decor pieces or decorations for your home. They have everything from pillows to shower curtains that you can add your own photos or designs to! How fun would it be to make a spooky shower curtain for Halloween?

I immediately got to work to come up with a fun Stranger Things inspired design for my Photo Blanket. This is what I came up with! It says “Let’s Get Strange!” and it has a bunch of Halloween and Stranger Things inspired designs on it.

It’s got waffles, flashlights, and even Barb’s glasses! The blanket came out better than I ever imagined it to come out.

The colors are just as vibrant as you see in the pictures and the quality is fantastic! It’s so soft and I love that I didn’t even have to pay for shipping for it. You can design your blanket online on their website and have it shipped to your store free of charge! It’s the perfect blanket to go with our Stranger things themed decor! I’m obsessed with it! OBSESSED!

I figured why stop there, so I made a spooky Bath Mat to go with it. I’m using it as a door mat instead of a bath mat as you can see below.

How fun is it going to be when we open up the door to our Halloween party guests and they see this amazing “Now Entering The Upside Down” mat when they come in? I know they are going to love it as much as I do! It’s so soft and it’s actually a memory foam bath mat, so it feels AMAZING under your feet. It’s so soft and cushiony.

The colors are also super vibrant on this mat and they did an amazing job on it. I wanted to make everything I could to make our house feel like the show and the upside down and these products sure did!

I also wanted to switch up the treats we’ll be serving our Halloween party guests and giving out to trick-0r-treaters this year, because who says you only have to hand out candy for Halloween?

I wanted to hand out some healthy snacks and CVS Pharmacy has an amazing variety to choose from! They go perfectly with our little pumpkin patch table setting for our party. They feature a pumpkin patch this year on the show, so we made a mini version complete with their bicycles! I digress…

They have amazing single packs of freeze dried Fuji apples and pears from their Gold Emblem Abound line and a variety of amazing brands that they cary in store like Larabar.

You can get packs of these to hand out to kids who ring your bell or you can get some awesome Gold Emblem fruit cubes or some Gold Emblem Abound Seasalt Roasted Chickpeas…

Or some awesome Gold Emblem Abound Strawberry Fruit Snack Bars. These are perfect to fill those trick-or-treat bags with!

My Halloween party guests will love munching on these Gold Emblem dark chocolate covered pistachios…

And the Gold Emblem Abound Heavenly Light Popcorn at our party!

It’s going to be a healthier Halloween for us, our Halloween party guest, and the kids in our neighborhood who come knocking at our door!

It’s also going to be a fabulous strange Halloween too thanks to CVS Photo! I can’t go on and on about how much I love how great my Photo Blanket and Bath Mat came out, but I’ll let you head to their website and design one up yourself, so you can see for yourself!
