I never really understood the idea of decorating for Halloween until I became a mom. Growing up, it was fun, but as I got older, Halloween became more of a “day” and less of a “season.” Sure, I’d go crazy with mummies and pumpkins, autumnal colors, and candles — but I always decorated for fall, not the spooky holiday. Now that I’m a mom, I get Halloween decor. Kids love the spooky holiday, so I’ll do whatever I can to make it special and fun for our family. This year, I’m fully committed to transforming my apartment into a Halloween Wonderland.
From scary characters to terrifying ghouls, here are some of our favorite Halloween decor items that are so good, even adults will get on board.
