Buying holiday-specific party goods isn’t generally a great idea unless you have lots of extra storage space.  But purchasing a few small, festive pieces that can be used for other occasions will help you set a festive scene.  Take, for example, this skull and bones cocktail shaker.  It doesn’t scream “Halloween” but it’s definitely perfect for the occasion.  Not only will it “shake-up” your Halloween bar, but you can easily use this kitchy piece year-round.


This cocktail shaker is availble at Target (seasonal), for $14.99.
