Tips on Taking Your Halloween Decor to the Next Level

Here are four tips to help you keep up.

If you feel like your neighbors always have a better Halloween display than you, here are four tips to help you keep up. Stick to one overall theme…like a creepy circus, zombies, or “The Nightmare Before Christmas” or another famous holiday film. This will help your front porch and yard feel more pulled together.

Don’t go too realistic…or you could traumatize your neighbors. It seems like every year there’s a story or two about someone calling 911 on a house’s Halloween decorations. Stuff like super realistic blood and guts should be off limits, especially if there are kids around and you plan on having trick or treaters.

Take all of the senses into consideration. Halloween decorations are better if they’re more than just something to look at. Try incorporating sounds or even smells. It can make for a better overall experience.

Finally load up on decorations for next year. You’re likely to score some great deals on Halloween decor if you go shopping on November 1st.
