Set a Spooky Theme

A haunting Halloween theme is all about the macabre, setting a chilling atmosphere your guests will fear. Our boneyard door curtain is perfect for provoking fear from the second your guests walk through the door. Lining your wall with haunting images like our haunted mansion banner decorations and hanging skull decorations will further emphasize the spooky atmosphere. Scary skeleton jointed cutouts and catacombs scene setters can get your guests in the Halloween spirit. Dress your serving table with a spooky skull lace table cover, and the dining room lighting with a haunted house chandelier, to add an extra layer of grim glamour to your haunted dining hall. Finally, set the mood with accented green glow pumpkin lights.

Our giant spider hanging decorations are sure to make your guests’ skin tingle or hang a grim reaper decoration that will make them desperately cling to dear life! Drape gauze black light reactive decoration along your stairs’ banister to continue the haunting theme across multiple house stories.

With these ghastly and gruesome party decorations, your house is sure to be just as absolutely horrific as some of the finest haunted houses people travel miles to visit—and upon entering, run from in fear.
