Decorating your home helps set the tone for your Halloween party. Luckily, there are a few ways that you can easily incorporate some frightfully stylish elements indoors and out for your get-together.

If your party is in the evening, help your guests make their way through the dark with pathways lights in colors, particularly in green or orange. Having lights that continuously change colors can also set the atmosphere for a spooktacular party, while also lighting the way. A great option is the Multi-Color LED Outdoor Solar Garden Pathway Lights, since they come in a set of 8. Have a short pathway? The Outdoor Caged Solar Stake Light with Green Glass is an elegant option that comes in a set of 2 lights.


Halloween Projector

Projector lights are also an easy way to add a seasonal touch to your indoor or outdoor decor. The Indoor/Outdoor LED Projector Lights can be used both indoors and outdoors. Plus, there's no need to worry about draping string lights perfectly or climbing up ladders. Simply place the light at least 10 feet away from the projection surface, stake the projector light into the ground and plug it in. It includes 3 scary-awesome Halloween light patterns to choose from to add an eerie ambiance to your party. As an added bonus, there are 7 other patterns that can be used for other annual holidays. 


You can easily create a spooky graveyard in your front yard with our polyresin tombstones. Place one of our polyresin tombstones, like the No Rest for the Wicked Tombstone, on your lawn or in your garden bed. It pairs well with the RIP Tombstone. Not only are these decorative tombstones great outdoors, but they can also be used indoors as well. Place one or both of these tombstones by your fireplace to get your home in the Halloween spirit.
