Pumpkin Cult's Twitter Feed, I've now found Bath and Body Work's latest Halloween offerings for 2011.
And I must say, I think they're kinda fun.
Overall there seems to be a color theme of bright orange, purple and green. Much like my approval of M and M's color choices a few years back, I think if you're not going to go orange, black and white, then this classic mix injects fun and color without making the holiday too much of a pinata of crazy.
Just going by the pictures, my favorite items are as follows:
The small ceramic votives of Frankenstein, a black cat and a jack o' lantern.
A great little trio that keeps the classic (jack and cat) and injects a little monster fun (Frank) too. I'm not usually a Frankenstein guy but the design of the face puts it at a cross between Frankenstein's monster, a skull and a pumpkin carving. I think I'll pick up the trio for my office decorations.
my favorite Target pumpkin cookie jar. Who knows? But I like it.
I almost forgot to mention the mini-hand-sanitizer bottles with colored sanitizer and Halloween labels! They're so little you could drop 'em in trick or treat bags... for... all the germ-o-phobic kids.
Again, I'm going by pictures-only here. So until I get my hands on these things and determine if they're worth purchasing or not, I can only surmise.
I'll either do another post post-purchase or just update this one.
Regardless, I approve of BBW's design and colors for their 2011 line. Check it all out HERE.
Can't wait to see what the rest of the box stores bring out... and SO EARLY.
It's July for Great Pumpkin's sake. NOT that I'm complainin'!
But if I see Captain Christmas start taking over the shelves on October 1st I'm going to be upset...
