Yesterday, zulily went full spooky! We invited the little ones from Solid Ground—a great community oriented organization dedicated to reducing poverty—and challenged each department to decorate their space to the nines-and they delivered! Our trick-or-treating guests found their way through Marketing’s haunted trail to Photo Editing’s cotton-candy filled carnival. Copy channeled their inner-wizard with an ode to Harry’s Hogwarts castle and Tech came to play with some ghoulish games. We’re waiting on the final tally from the kids to find out who will take home the “Golden Goblin” for spookiest department. One thing we can say for sure is that this year’s zulily Halloween celebrations were spooktacular fun!

As an extra treat for fans, check out the costume creativity zulily employees showed in these awesome snaps our photo team took yesterday. Enjoy!

the newbie: Halloween!

I know that, at 15 months, June is too young to remember this Halloween. But still, how can we resist dressing her up and taking her door to door?

My husband is getting out of work early on Wednesday, we’re bundling up our baby girl in a strawberry outfit that’s cozy and cute, and we’re collecting candy! (Whether June gets to eat any of it remains to be seen.)

This year, I think we’ll just do some trick-or-treating on our block, but I’d really like to make our family holiday celebrations special starting next year. My mom used to peel grapes so they felt like eyeballs in the dark. And cold cooked spaghetti sure can pass as a bowl of brains when you’re young and impressionable!

Happy Halloween!
