What Are the Best Halloween Decorations

What are the best Halloween decorations? The answer to that question depends on your personal preference.

 I swear every year as I drive around town, I see more and more people decorating for Halloween.



Some of these decorations are to the extreme, and some are so simple. People decorating outside for Halloween is becoming more and more like decorating for Christmas.

Halloween sure is a fun time for kids and adults alike, so why not live it up enjoy it, and have fun. 

I never decorated too much for Halloween, but I seem to be doing just a little more every year, I think that is because of our grandchildren. They get so excited every year so decorating becomes a family event.

I string orange lights around the front porch, and railings, add some cob webs to the bushes along with some ghosts on sticks, and of course light up the pumpkins that we carve with our grandchildren.

Then there is my favorite outside decoration that I’ve had for years now. It’s a six-foot air blown inflatable. It’s a Witch Rising out of a Cauldron, and it lights up. This thing has been the best decoration ever we’ve had so many laughs with it. 

The kids just love this thing year after year, they all stop and have to walk up to it just to touch it. We even had one neighbor that had to walk his dog on the other side of the street, because the dog wouldn’t walk past the witch when we had it turned on.

Then, there is the famous graveyard scene. Turn your yard into a ghoulish and scary graveyard, with tombstones, coffins, mummies, and zombies. I see a lot of yards that are so creative with this, and a lot of them have live zombies on Halloween night.

If you are a do it yourself kind of person here are a couple of links to help, make your own tombstones.






Table decorated for Halloween

Decorating inside the house is also so much fun, I’m getting to the point where I have just as many totes in the basement for Halloween as I do for Christmas.

We have our favorite Halloween table cloth, along with some wall d├ęcor like spiders and webs. Then we place some light up pumpkins around the house.

 We make our grandchildren a couple of Halloween gift baskets filled with goodies.

 On Halloween night we make our favorite Halloween food for the kids, mummy dogs.



I’m getting excited already, and there is still two months to go. We hope you have a Safe and Happy Halloween.

  1. That's funny about your neighbor's dog having to walk on the other side of the street to avoid the witch. No doubt our Daisy would react the same way! People around here, too, decorate more and more for Halloween then go right into Christmas decoration mode. So much fun!

  5. I leave the decorating to others, too costly for me living already on a stretched income. However, I do enjoy the Halloween fare and festivities of others, all of it! I like pumpkins, witches, spooky and friendly critters...and enjoy the fun the wee ones are having. My dog enjoys the pumpkins!
