Break out the costumes and candy, because Halloween is just around the corner! Happen to run out of ideas on how to decorate your backyard? Look no further as we have some frightfully fun ideas that will help you create a spooktacular backyard just in time for Halloween!
1. Light It Up With Jack-O'-Lantern
Nothing screams Halloween more than some carved up pumpkins! Set up an array of fun Jack-O’-Lanterns and light them with some battery-operated tea lights. While this may be simple and traditional, it’ll definitely make your backyard look ethereal in the long, dark night.
Pro-Tip: For a more elegant touch, and to brighten up your space further, surround your gazebos or other patio structures with a string of beautiful fairy lights!
2. Spook Up Your Halloween Table
Immerse your guests in the spirit of Halloween even as you dine al fresco. There’s never too many pumpkins for this occasion! Spook your dining table up with some ghostly plates and skull decorations.
Pro-Tip: Put on some scary background music as you dine — it’ll definitely amp up the eerie atmosphere!
3. Keep It Warm & Freaky
While it’s fun to have a fright-filled night, it’s important to keep everyone warm as it gets colder. Just because it’s functional, doesn’t mean it should be dull! Surround your fire pits or fireplaces with some Halloween decor so that you can keep the fall chill away as your real freaky ghost stories give them a very different type of chill!
Want to take it up a few notches? Use a Jack-O’-Lantern fire pit that is literally built for the occasion!
4. Make Full Use Of Your Foliage
Have some bushes in your yard? Perfect! Depending on the Halloween style you’re going for, you can hang some frightening signs or fun and cute lights among the bushes.
If you have trees or tall plants in your patio, make use of them. There is so much you can do with the foliage, from hanging spooky lanterns or floating ghosts, to hiding skeletons that’ll creep out curious onlookers!
