Does anyone know how far the outlet is from the window at POR. I'm thinking of getting a small string of lights and was wondering how long of an extention cord will I need or if I need one at all.

Anybody know where I might find some. I've already searched online and can only find non-seasonal in wall clings and I don't want to have to put them on the outside of the windows. Also I found some Mardi Gras color lights on Amazon. The string is green, would rather it were white but may order them anyway. I can't wait to decorate my window and my DH thinks it's odd.
If you were content with just purple lights...you can buy a strand at Hobby Lobby right now in the Halloween section :-) not sure how much the ones on amazon are but Hobby Lobby also sells just a Green strand....maybe its cheaper to intertwine the purple and green :-) as for Non-Holiday clings...have you thought of just making your own? You can buy window clings stuff for the printer and print your own :-) :-)

I'll have to look into making my own window clings if I don't find any. Can you get that stuff at Hobby Lobby also? I have thought about intertwining the lights but was thinking it might make it too heavy for the suction cups to hold them up in the window. It probably is a cheaper option though.

I'm going today to return some stuff...I can check and report back ;-) I've heard that office depot/max sells them but I'm sure hobby lobby should. I live on the Texas/Louisiana border so we have Mardi GRAS dedicated stores here lol

And here are the printables I was talking about...can be bought at Staples, office depot/max, etc.

We got our window clings at Walmart and Walgreeens.
A friend said they had cute ones at the Super Dollar Tree but I never made it over there...we leave Tuesday! And NOTHING else will fit in those suitcases...
If anyone is at FQ Sept 4-17 we will be there with decorated windows!

Would love to see some pics of your window when you return to the boards after your trip. Your the second person to mention Dollar Tree so I will have to find the nearest one and check them out.

Our Party City has a small Mardi Gras section but it's sad, lol. Thanks for checking and thanks for the links. Haven't had a chance to look at them yet, I'm supposed to be working, lol.

Ordered the Mardi Gras lights from Amazon last night. Feels kind of odd buying them for a trip that's 5 months away but I like to have things planned out as to what I'm going to do rather than trying to find the stuff at the last minute and ending up not being about to do the window as I'm hoping to.

Walgreens had tons of Mickey and some Princess Halloween decorations. I just bought a bunch: window and wall clings and a cutout.

I am trying to post links to pics on my Pinterest, but they won't show up.

Your decorations look cute. Can't wait to see your window pics. I was just at our Walgreens today and they have a lot of cute Disney Halloween window clings. I also saw some Minnie and Mickey scarecrows, about 15 inches tall, they would be very cute sitting in a window.
