There are obviously good reasons why the US has more cool stuff (the products are more popular out there for one). But either way, we had a little think and came up with three Halloween decorations that Halloweenerrific would love to see on sale in the UK for Halloween 2011.
It’s easy to get carried away decorating your home for Halloween, but neglecting one important thing – your gardens. I mean, what good is a spooky looking house without some tombstones on the lawn or something right?
Well, if you want to go one better, why not make it look as if you have the undead digging themselves out of your turf? It’s sure to be a real crowd pleaser.
There are a few places selling ‘lawn zombies’ but none are quite as convincing as those on the Spirit Halloween site:
Using the zombie is pretty straight forward, you just place it where you need it. I guess the only challenge is positioning it where it’s going to have the most impact.
They’re definitely one thing that it would be nice to have on sale here next year.
You can buy Lawn Zombies now from Spririt Halloween:
Spooky Shadows Light
We featured this on Halloweenerrific some time back, and at present, we can’t find anywhere in the UK that stocks it.
A bit of Halloween lighting can make all of the difference when you’re putting on an All Hallows party, but it can often be fiddly and expensive to get good results.
For this reason, the Spooky Shadows light has a lot of appeal. Just one device can give a great atmosphere and at a very reasonable price too.
It’s pretty simple, you plug it in and the shapes rotate around the light inside. Think of it like a baby mobile, but evil.
Again, the Spooky Shadows light can be bought from the US, from Spirit Halloween:
Spooky Shadows Light
Would be nice if some stockists could get hold of it over here!
Animated inflatable vampire
I personally feel that there isn’t enough of this type of decoration in the UK and would love to see stockists pay them more attention.
As well as looking good, they generally pack away very small, meaning that you don’t need to have a lot of loft space to store it.
This little guy is particularly good as he is big, lights up, and even rises out of the coffin all by himself. Can you imagine the amusement/scares that would bring at your Halloween party?
At present, you can buy this bouncy blood-sucker from buycostumes in the US:
Animated inflatable vampire in Coffin
We’re just looking forward to seeing what other Halloween decorations await us in 2011!
