Anders Ruff has never met a holiday it couldn't turn into an adorable soiree, and this Valentine's Day Mr. & Miss Mustache Party is no exception. "We all know the mustache trend is in full force right now — for both boys and girls!" says Maureen Anders. "Go into any toddler, tween, or teeny bopper store, and you'll find a mustache or two on the clothes and decor. We decided to create a collection that was perfect for both boys and girls."
The printable party collection comes in two colorways to please both genders and includes tons of creative designs (mystery valentine message decoders and "wet your whiskers" drink wraps) and some hilarious word plays on the theme. "Sweets for your candy 'stache" chocolate-bar wrappers and bag toppers that say "you 'must' enjoy some now and 'stache some for later" are just two of our favorites.

I'll admit that in my premommy days, I actually enjoyed shopping for wrapping paper and creating lovely little packages more than actually shopping for gifts. But these days, with time at a premium and a seemingly never-ending holiday to-do list, I just want my gifts wrapped and done, any paper will do. So while I'll be stocking up on simple, inexpensive (and stylish, right?) kraft paper, I'll be jazzing up my gifts with adorable — and free! — printable tags that are chic on the cheap. If you're in the same boat as me, keep clicking to check out a dozen of the cutest free gift tags of the season!

In modern day trick-or-treating, parents know that it's mandatory to pass out individually wrapped candy (am I wrong, or has that razor blade story been going around since I was a child?) — and the bigger and more sugary, the better. In my hometown, if you wanted to keep your porch pumpkins in one piece, you had to be the family that gave out full-size candy bars, not (heaven forbid!) granola bars or those generic candies. But if you want to jazz up that plastic bowl full of Butterfingers and Snickers bars, we've found some great ideas to make your Halloween candy cuter. Keep clicking to find your favorite.

The following 11 party printables from Etsy are guaranteed to help you set the tone for one spectacularly spooky bash, so keep clicking and find your Halloween soiree style!
The first word that comes to mind when you think Halloween might not be "fancy" (unless you're British and prefer to call dressing up "fancy dress"), but Paula Biggs of Frog Prince Paperie might just change that with this adorable, black-cat-themed ball. "It was all about luxury — on paper," she says. "Paper draping curtains, candlesticks, and cake stands all were printed and used to make a striking backdrop. A few feathers, sparkling touches, and satiny tablecloths, and the kids thought they were spooky high rollers!" Keep clicking for all the stylish,scary details, and head to Frog Prince to pick up the printables for yourself!
