I like to make our Halloween decorations spooky cute instead of scary gory because we have a bunch of little kids in our neighborhood. The last thing we want is to scare the Trick or Treaters so much that they are afraid to come to our door on Begger’s Night. Giving out candy and going gaga over the kid’s costumes (house rule) is one of Husband’s favorite things about Halloween.
The other thing Husband likes is decorating with Halloween decorations that move. I’m all about Halloween lights and décor that lights up.
We like to poke our heads in home décor and pop up Halloween stores this time of year to do some hard core Halloween trend and décor idea shopping.
It looks like ghost decorations are popular this year because everywhere we look we’re surrounded by ghosts. Boooooooooo!
