1 Choose a theme. Before you go shopping, you need to consider what type of theme you’re going for. Otherwise, you'll end up with both cute and scary Halloween decorations. Choosing a theme is easier than you might think. You simply need to ask yourself if you want a home that is inviting to children or adults. Once you’ve picked a theme, it will be much easier to choose Halloween decorations that compliment each other.
Consider the size of your yard. Nothing looks worse than a yard that is overrun with decorations. This means that you need to truly consider the size of your yard. As you choose different Halloween decorations, ask yourself if each piece will fit nicely in your yard or be crammed together. Truth be told, a few well placed pieces make a bigger impact than several pieces that are crammed into a small space.
