From the beginning of time, people have loved to scare other people. I wonder why that is. Is it just in our blood to have the crazy desire to give other people bone chilling heart attacks? Maybe so, but you’ve got to be prepared. If you’re going to do it,
It’s such an easy task to go out and get the proper scary decorations you need ion order to give your visitors quite a scare and an exceptional night to remember. Halloween patio decorating ideas are not just for you but for your guests too. They want to be scared. Trust me, it’s Halloween.
Boo to You
Like I said before, your guests want to be scared. Aunt MaryBeth may say she doesn’t feel like having a scare tonight because the doctor said her blood pressure’s gone up a little too high, but that’s just because she’s worried about your patio not being spooky enough.
Come on, get it together! Don’t let your highly valued guests be disappointed. Some people go so far as to even make their homes a haunted house. Crazy, right? But I bet their the talk of the neighborhood. So, why not put up some scary decorations or even dress up yourself to give your guests a heck of a good time?
So, Get a Scarecrow
Scarecrows? Yes, scarecrows. But my guests aren’t birds. They won’t be scared. Well, it’s mainly decoration with a creepy spin that you can add to it. You could even have someone dress up as a scarecrow, sit there on your patio, and jump out as people walk up. Hilarious!
Scarecrows are really cool though. They are something that has represented Autumn and Halloween all at once for decades. I guess it’s decades, it could be centuries. I didn’t do my scarecrow research so I’m just pretty much assuming. But get a scarecrow!
A Pumpkin Patch to Hatch
People love pumpkins especially this time of year. It’s finally harvest season and we’ve been dying for that pumpkin spice latte at Starbuck’s all year long. We can’t wait to put on our boots and go pick some pumpkins at the pumpkin patch and roast those pumpkin seeds. Yum!
So why not decorate your patio with Autumn’s most loved fruit? Children love the little pumpkins. You’ll probably even see some of them dressed up like one as they’re trick-or-treating. I know I went as a pumpkin once. I might even sneak out and go this year; no one would know, I’m short and cute.
Fall Colors to Hover
And finally, make sure your patio is dressed all up in those beautiful fall colors in order to give your patio the most Autumn feel as you say hi and bye to those little candy-wanting children. Be sure to make your patio stand out. Fall colors with just an extra pop of orange is great.
For tonight, your patio should be mostly orange if you are going for the traditional Halloween decor, but if you are going for a scary look, you should choose some scarier colors. If you are just keeping it subtle and going for the Autumn look then keep it brown, red, and light orange.
Have a Chilling Night
Now that you know the ins and outs of Halloween patio decorating, you can go out right now and get your patio ready for your Halloween party and trick-or-treaters. You’ll have a grand old fun time tonight, and always remember to be safe and be good out there!
We don’t want any patio horror stories today, so make sure your patio is always in check. Have a fun time decorating your patio with your family and friends on this spooky night. Don’t you get yourself into too much trouble, now. I’ll be watching you! No I won’t; that’s creepy. I’ll be home eating candy and watching scary movies. Happy Halloween!
