Decorating Your Home for Halloween

After much deliberation, you’ve finally decided on this year’s perfect Halloween costume. But what about your home? Will it be decorated to do your costume justice?

Whether you plan to wear your costume to frighten trick-or-treaters or if you’re having a spooky Halloween party, how you decorate your home can take your guests’ experience to a frighteningly new level.

Here are some tips from a how-to article on decorating your home for Halloween:

Pay a lot of attention to your lighting. Turn your lights very low, or even turn them off, using only candles to create a spooky Halloween glow.

  • Fill your home with spooky wisps of smoke and fog made from dry ice.

  • Make a few ghastly head centerpieces for your buffet.

  • Place shrunken apple heads in the least expected places such as on dining room or kitchen chairs, in your guests' coat pockets, or at the bottom of a snack bowl.

  • Play spooky Halloween music inside and outside your house.

  • Welcome your guests with spooky jack-o-lanterns lining your walkway.

  • Create creepy spiders to scatter everywhere including your buffet table, chairs, ceilings and anyplace else your guests might be surprised.

  • Spread cobwebs in choice corners of your home (available at most party stores) and selectively place miniature spiders in each web.

  • Cover your furniture with white sheets to simulate a deserted haunted house.

  • Buy your own Fog Machine.

  • Shop at Pumpkin Masters for a wonderful selection of pumpkin carving tools and instructions.
