Halloween Decorations for the Home ~ A Holiday Product Review

 Just in case you were wondering, Halloween is coming up quickly!  In three short weeks it will be upon us full blast.  Are you ready?


If you enjoy Halloween as much as I do, you can go to great lengths to decorate your home for this frightful holiday.  Your decor can be as easy as a whole bunch of pumpkins and gourds artistically displayed, to a full out haunted house.  It is all up to you.

Decorating should be fun to do and easy to remove once the holiday is over,  in my humble opinion.  To that end, I went looking for decorations that would fit nicely into my "easy" lifestyle.  

Wouldn't you know it, good old Amazon.com has a great selection of really easy and not too expensive outdoor decorations that fit that bill perfectly.  

 Inflatable decorations are easy to put up and even easier to take down again.  In most cases all that is required is a long outdoor extension cord to plug these in.  

These inflatables can be cute or really scary.  Pumpkins and ghosts are good fun choices, but those witches and goblins, werewolves and skeletons are pretty popular too.  






Just around the corner from us, one home has several of these blow up decorations that are lit up for the evenings.  They are lovely, easy to place and easy to remove too! That's important because we all know that right after Halloween we will shift to Thanksgiving and Christmas decor instead! So that easy removal is a bonus for sure. 

Everyone has been waiting for a great reason to celebrate and I can't think of a holiday that is more fun than Halloween.  I love watching the little ones who are just so cute in their costumes and really don't understand the whole concept of knocking on doors and getting candy.  Their eyes tell the story and the awe which they are in is contagious.  Of all the holidays in the year, I think this one is the one that makes me feel young again.  After all I can get myself dressed up too and I will!  No one will know who is hiding under that disguise!

Halloween Outdoor Decorations

A Tour of Outdoor Halloween Decorations

When did Halloween Decorations get so Elaborate?

I remember when Halloween decorations consisted of a pumpkin that we carved into a Jack-O-Lantern and sat on our front porch. But then that was a simpler time.

In our neighborhood Halloween outdoor decorations have become as elaborate as Christmas decorating. The cute Jack-O-Lanterns have been joined by spiders, webs, grave yards, and a wide array of ghoulish characters. I'm not sure when this tradition started, but it seems to get more elaborate each year.
I decided it would be fun to take a tour of our neighborhood and photograph the various Halloween decorations.
I hope your enjoy this look into Halloween in our neighborhood in O'Fallon, Missouri!

Skull Heads - Halloween Lights

This new addition is a neighbor's yard that has their sidewalk lined in skull heads. They light up in the dark making an eerie walkway. I have found there are lots of different skull head Halloween decorations on the market. 

Giant Spiders add to this Halloween Look

These spiders give this house an eerie feeling.  Perfect for that Halloween affect.

Scarecrow with Jack O Lantern Head

Here is another decorated yard. They have stuck with the more traditional jack-o-lantern, ghost, and scarecrow theme.

Halloween Outdoor Decorations

I love walking around our neighborhood looking at all of the Halloween outdoor decorations.  They range from beautiful autumn pumpkin and flower displays to the haunted house downright eerie decorations.  Of course, I love them all!

Halloween is such a fun holiday to celebrate.  It thrills me to see my neighbors and friends enjoying the occasion.  It isn't even October yet and already my neighbors have started decorating.  Right now, they seem to be limiting their decorations to the autumn harvest displays, but I know very soon I will start seeing the witches and goblins come out.

I have noticed that I am not the only Review This contributor who loves touring the neighborhood and looking at all of the decorations.  Mary Beth shared her own Tour of Outdoor Halloween Decorations with us through her beautiful photography.  I know you will all enjoy talking that virtual tour of Mary Beth's neighborhood.

 
Decorate Your Own Yard for Halloween

We don't just stop at looking at others decorations, we decorate our own front yard!   We set up our inflatable outdoor decorations first.  After our inflatable ghosts and pumpkins are in place, we add Halloween lights to our bushes.



Several of our neighbors decorate with ghosts, witches and cauldrons.  Looking down our street, the combination of different themes really makes for a wonderful collection of "haunted homes".  I truly believe it adds fun for the children as they trick or treat, but it also gives the adults a way to enjoy their walks as well.



Share Your Halloween Decorations With Us Here on Review This!

I've given you a look at some of my favorite Halloween outdoor decorations and I would love to hear about your favorites.  Even better, I would love to see them!
