Boo basket ideas: What are boo baskets? They’re like Easter baskets but with less fluff and more creep

Balloons: You don’t normally think of balloons for Halloween, but there are so many fun options to decorate your porch for the big day or for a Halloween party.

Balloon arches: We’re partial to this one with bats and spiders.
