Trick or Treat: Outdoor Halloween Decoration Ideas

Happy Howl-O-Ween!

From its candy and its food to its outdoor decorations, costumes and décor, it’s no secret that Halloween continues to rise in popularity. Billions of dollars are spent on Halloween goodies every year. Americans clearly know how to eat, drink and be scary!

Creep it Real

Halloween’s popularity shows no sign in slowing down, and why should it? October 31 is the time of the year to express yourself, to come as you aren’t, to have some fun and to apply your creepy creativity to some outdoor spaces. Outdoor Halloween décor is easy with today’s pre-lit, whimsical and super-fun outdoor décor. Both kids and adults can get into the spook-tastic fun: Halloween is created for both the young — and the young at heart. Whether you’re bone to be wild and love your outdoor skeletons or you’re the ghostest with the mostest and love to shake your boo-ty, you’ll find some something totally awesome at Miles Kimball’s Halloween store. Below, we’ve featured some of our favorite Halloween décor and outdoor décor items that will turn the heads of neighbors and make you the talk of your town.

Light-Up Halloween Flair

When it comes to outdoor Halloween items, nothing is easier than pre-lit Halloween décor items that are just your (blood) type. If you like the look of whimsical, pre-lit holiday décor, you love the glow that these charming designs with mini lights will provide when placed in a window. All that is needed is a nearby electrical outlet and/or an extension cord for instant Halloween décor. Choose between our Black Cat and Moon Light, our charming Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Light or our batty “Happy Halloween” Shimmer Light.

DIY Halloween Lighting: Pumpkin Carving

Prefer DIY Outdoor Halloween lighting? You can’t get much easier (or classic) than pumpkin carving — which is the quintessential outdoor Halloween décor. Pumpkin carving has been the go-to family friendly activity for decades and allows you to be as traditional — or as unique — as you want. Whether you opt for a simple, smiling jack-o’-lantern or you spend hours creating an intricate, funny or scary scene, this staple outdoor Halloween decoration offers you hours of fun — not to mention tasty pumpkin seeds to be shared with the family.

Consider a scarecrow-themed lighted jack-o’-lantern: “sew” your pumpkin’s mouth up with twine. Turn the traditional pumpkin-carving on its head and use the “stem” of your pumpkin as your jack-o’-lantern’s nose, cutting a silly or a traditional smiling mouth below and triangle eyes above the stem. Pay homage to your four-legged furry friends by carving cat or dog paw silhouettes into your pumpkin. Want a super-easy outdoor pumpkin decoration that takes mere minutes to create? Consider spray painting multiple sizes of pumpkins and gourds gold metallic, black, silver or white and arranging them on your porch steps, patio or landscaping areas. When it comes to outdoor décor, it’s best to go big or gourd home!

Take a Gander at Outdoor Halloween Goose Decor

Everyone is talking about our Outdoor Goose and his wacky wardrobe that includes outfits for every season, including Halloween. Just in time for Halloween, our friendly neighborhood decorative goose has decided to don his Pumpkin Goose Outfit, his Witch Goose Outfit and/or his Frankenstein Goose Outfit. Pair one or more of our outdoor geese for a fantastical, fun and fa-BOO-lous outdoor garden décor looks that will add conversation starters and whimsical interest to your front yard.

Decorative Yard Stakes, Garden Flags and Halloween Garden Décor

Looking for some fun, quirky and adorable looks for your Halloween-inspired garden décor? Consider decorative garden stakes and Halloween-themed garden flags. These are almost-instant outdoor Halloween décor choices that add color, fun and whimsy to your spaces. Metal garden stakes, plant stakes and garden flags are a quick and easy way to brighten up potted plants, hanging baskets and more. Choose from several charming garden stake styles by Fox River Creations™, including Jack-O’-Lantern plant metal stake sets (which will give ‘em pumpkin to talk about), Halloween Planter Stakes Set or Metal Black Cat Stake sets. What about eye-catching Metal Witch Leg garden stakes? These’ll turn any yard, planter or landscaping island into a fun-loving “crime” scene that may require further scrutiny.

Celebrate The Day of The Three-Leaf Clover

Happy St. Patrick’s Day from Miles Kimball.

The Origin of St. Patrick’s Day:
Saint Patrick’s Day was made an official Christian feast day in the early 17th century and is observed by the Catholic Church, the Anglican Communion (especially the Church of Ireland), the Eastern Orthodox Church, and the Lutheran Church. The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland, and celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals, and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. According to legend St. Patrick used the three leaf clover (or shamrock) to explain the Trinity.

Celebrate your Irish pride this St. Patrick’s Day with everything you need for a truly festive celebration available from Miles Kimball. Everyone enjoys the luck of the Irish on St. Paddy’s Day and we’ve got just what you need to spread the luck around on this special occasion. From a fun St. Patrick’s Day garden flag to shamrock apparel, jewelry, and fabulous collectibles, you’ll find everything you need for show off your Irish heritage all year round. The fun starts in Miles Kimball’s St. Patrick’s Day department where you can stock up on playful décor and more, including lights and shamrock wreaths!
