With Halloween right around the corner, it’s officially time to kick off your hunt for all the spooky décor you'll need to ready your home for any ghosts and goblins that might show up looking for candy. Whether you love causing a fright with heart-stoppingly realistic pieces trick-or-treaters will marvel at or you prefer something that's more cute than fearsome — think smiling pumpkins — there’s no shortage of incredible Halloween décor ideas to be found for 2019.
When to Shop for Halloween Décor
Though we've got more than a month to go before the big day, much of the best stuff tends to go fast. Americans were projected to spend $2.7 billion on Halloween decorations in 2018, according to an annual survey conducted for the National Retail Federation, so you'll likely want to get a jumpstart on the competition!
The best Halloween deals won't come until the day after the holiday (womp, womp), but you can also mark those calendars now to stock up for 2020.
How to Decorate Your House for Halloween
When it comes to Halloween décor, you can go all out with large inflatables that take up every corner of your yard, like tombstones you would find in an eerie graveyard, or keep things simple with a few indoor candles and mantle centerpieces to supplement your own DIY creations.
Many master decorators may also opt to stick to a theme. Maybe you want to build a shrine to your favorite Hollywood movie monsters, or you're going for a more general autumnal motif that features tons of leaves and pumpkins. Either way, decking your home out for the season is sure to get you — and your guests! — in the holiday spirit in a hurry.
FIRST has found decorations for both indoor and outdoor use that are sure to bewitch you all season long, no matter your budget or desired decorating scheme. Keep scrolling for FIRST’s picks for the best Halloween décor ideas of 2019 ... if you dare!
