Spooky Delights and Decorating Frights: Happy Halloween 2020!

Gather ’round, all you Halloween enthusiasts and decorating aficionados! It’s that eerie and exciting time of year again when the air gets chillier, the nights grow longer, and the ghouls come out to play. Welcome to Halloween 2020, where we’re about to dive into a world of spooky delights and decorating frights!

Haunted Home Sweet Home: Transforming your home into a haunted haven is all part of the fun. Whether you’re hosting a Halloween party or just want to impress the trick-or-treaters, here are some decorating tips to ensure your abode is the spookiest on the block:

  1. Pumpkin Paradise: Start with the classics – carved pumpkins! Create eerie or friendly jack-o’-lanterns and use LED candles to avoid any accidental scares.
  2. Creepy Crawlers: Fake spiderwebs and plastic spiders can turn any corner into a spooky spider lair. Hang them in doorways, windows, and on your porch.
  3. Ghastly Ghosts: Craft your own ghosts by draping white sheets over balloons or foam balls. Hang them from trees or ceilings for a floating apparition effect.
  4. Sinister Silhouettes: Create shadowy scenes in your windows with black paper cutouts of witches, bats, or ghosts. Backlight them for maximum impact.
  5. Wicked Wreaths: Craft a Halloween-themed wreath for your front door(maybe hang it on the inside of the door this year). Use items like black feathers, miniature skulls, and spooky ribbons to give it that haunted look.

Party Frights and Delights: If you’re hosting a Halloween gathering for your immediate family, here are a few extra tips to keep the spirits high:

  1. Costume Contest: Organize a costume contest with prizes for the most creative, spooky, and funny costumes. Don’t forget to take lots of pictures!
  2. Themed Treats: Whip up some Halloween-themed treats like “mummy” hotdogs, “eyeball” meatballs, and “witches’ brew” punch. Get creative with your spooky menu!
  3. Scary Movie Marathon: Set up an outdoor or indoor movie area for a scary movie marathon. Classic horror films are always a hit.
  4. Pumpkin Decorating: Have a pumpkin decorating station for your guests (perhaps virtual). Provide paint, stickers, and carving tools for some Halloween creativity. (Amazon)

Remember to prioritize safety during Halloween celebrations. Ensure your outdoor decorations are well-lit to prevent trips and falls and use flameless candles to avoid fire hazards.

Halloween is the time when imagination runs wild and creativity knows no bounds. Whether you go all-out spooky or keep it fun and friendly, may your Halloween 2020 be filled with thrilling decorations, delicious treats, and lots of spooky fun!

Thank you for joining us in celebrating this spine-tingling quarantining season. Here’s to a wickedly delightful Halloween! Within the confines of your home of course!
