Outdoor Halloween

Halloween Haven

Outdoor Decorating Guide

As autumn knocks at your door, tots and teens return to school, leaves change color and collect on lawns—it's time to prepare for fall decorating. Add some magical elements to your landscape: dress your entry with bountiful urns, trick out your yard with haunting figures and headstones, and do up your doors with seasonal foliage. Whether you're looking to create an elegant entryway to celebrate the harvest or terrorize the neighborhood (or perhaps a little of both), here are some enchanting elements to consider.

A Beautiful Harvest at Your Door

When creating a classic and tasteful harvest-themed entryway, be sure to cover the basics and accent with items that can withstand the outside elements. Trim a doorway with garlands, add a Fall Wreath to the door, add a swag to a gate or mailbox, and furnish urns. Choose pieces made from materials that make it effortless for you. Use lifelike, weather-resistant foliage accented with faux berries, realistic-looking fruits, and dried pinecones. Pick durable, lightweight containers. Before hanging garlands, consider the size of your doorway; most standard entrances look best with three garlands linked together. For a finishing touch, illuminate the mix—orange or white lights add the perfect glow to your cornucopia of arrangements.

Sinister Scenes on the Lawn

If you're looking to frighten those who darken your threshold, life-size Halloween figures like witches, zombies, ghosts, and vampires are a wicked way to welcome your guests. Select figures with light-up eyes and scary sound effects then add a fog machine to create an otherworldly area. Build a scene in your front yard with a faux-stone graveyard full of undead characters clawing their way out of the ground. Make a statement with oversized, inflatable cats, trees, clowns, and carriages. If porch space is limited or is already at capacity, hang ghosts, witches, skeletons, and spiders from gutters and banisters or suspend over doors.

As the sun sets earlier and the air becomes cool and crisp, you'll be honoring each day with elegant autumnal enhancements and lighting up the night with bewitching Halloween decorations. Shop Outdoor Halloween Decorations and Fall Decorations
