When I was a kid, my mom did the house UP for Halloween. Actually, she did the house up for every holiday. I would never be surprised to get presents for St. Patrick’s Day – despite not being Irish at all – and seeing the bins of decorations go up in a timely fashion for every holiday. Then there were birthdays, where we got balloons and garland, and the “junk” cereal of our choice. My mom is an artist/art teacher and loves all holidays, while I sometimes give in to moods or lack of moods, and I’m not quite up to her gusto. That said, I always loved Halloween and now it’s even better as a parent. It’s FANTASTIC. And this year, we’re in the mood to decorate the house early.
Our In-Home Haunted House Decor:
If you need reminding, I can tell you that it was IN our wedding vows to be the most popular house on Halloween night. And oh yeah – my husband made an insane Halloween costume in six days and won the costume contest at the parade. We talk about Halloween for every day of October, and September, and by the way – have you seen our house? It’s already decorated!
Oh, that’s right – you haven’t. So let me introduce you to our in-home Haunted House decor! Party City is excited for Halloween this year, and we are too. And we wanted to share amazing options for Halloween decor, and also, how affordable it is. You can get everything you need to build the most SPOOKtacular In-Home Decor. We created a haunted house corner in our house.
The Shopping Experience:
Party City has GREAT value and options. I mean, it’s really our party place to go, but there’s nothing quite like going during the fall. They make it so easy to create joy and fun. And they have many benefits, like ease of shopping, Free Same Day Delivery, and Curbside Pick Up. Plus they have affordability and ease of shopping. We got everything for our haunted house for under $100! So even if you’re on a budget, there are fun decorations and options for you!
And Now, the Theme!
So we have a pretty big open area living room, dining room, and kitchen. We thought it would be fun to create a Haunted House “corner” of the room. And it’s near a pretty big window so we thought it would be fun for people outside to catch glimpses of it as well. We bought a gravestone, spider webbing, a big spider, a jumping spider, little spiders, skulls, and some various sized ghosts and ghouls. And it’s in a great place for people coming into our house.
Isn’t it awesome? It’s giving us so much pleasure! Even though this fall is different from usual, we have to keep the Halloween spirit alive. I think there are even MORE reasons to decorate.
