Before buying a pumpkin decoration, there are a few points you should take into consideration, such as size, location, and if a power source is required. To help you with this, we’ve put together this handy buying guide!
When it comes to decorating for Halloween, you need to look at whether you’re going to decorate inside or outside. This will greatly affect which pumpkin decorations you choose!
When decorating outside the home, you need to look for decorations that can be easily seen, especially if you have a big yard.
Outdoor decorations also need to be resistant to the elements so they won’t get destroyed by rain or blown away by strong winds. Look for waterproof decorations that are either heavy or can be firmly fixed down.
Indoor decorations will be restricted by how much space you have. You may want a pumpkin decoration that will dominate a room, but it’s more likely that you will want something more subtle. You can go for smaller decorations inside your home.
You likely don’t need to worry about how delicate they are unless you have small children or rambunctious pets. If you do, consider light options made of foam or plastic rather than ceramic or glass.
Before buying pumpkin decorations, you must consider where you are going to put them. This is more important for indoor decorations, but it can also be necessary for outdoor decorations.
When you’re decorating outdoors, consider any grassy areas that you have available. However, you can also decorate your porch and steps if you have them! Decorations for the porch and steps will need to be carefully considered as you have to make sure you'll still have room to enter your house without tripping.
If you’re looking for indoor decorations, you should first look at the space you have available. Shelves, tables, mantles, windowsills, or staircases are all ideal places for decorations, and many of them may already have the space available.
However, you may have to temporarily move other decor for your pumpkin decorations, so ensure you have the storage materials and space available if you do choose to move anything.
You should also consider what areas are more commonly seen. Everyone who enters the house will see your entry hall, but not everyone will see your kitchen, for example. You may want to concentrate on decorating rooms that are more commonly used to get the most out of your pumpkin decoration.
Many pumpkin decorations may need electricity to work correctly. Inflatable pumpkins or pumpkin-shaped lights, for example, will need to have a power outlet in easy reach. Check that any cords are long enough to reach from a power outlet to where you plan to put the decorations. If not, then you will need to buy an extension cord.
You should also make sure that any power cords are kept in safe places and don’t cut across areas where they can be easily tripped over or pulled at. If the decorations are outdoor, you should ensure that cords are weatherproofed to survive wet and windy weather!
Some outdoor decorations that require power might be solar-powered. These are a great alternative to finding power outlets but have their own considerations. You will need to find a sunny part of your yard for the solar panel so it can catch the sun it requires. If the panel is left in a shaded area, it won’t be able to power your decorations.
The best pumpkin decorations for your home will also depend on the reason why you’re decorating.
If you’re decorating as part of a fall theme, then you will want to look for pumpkins that look more natural instead of ones with scary Halloween faces. A collection of plain pumpkins in natural colors such as red and orange will add some fall flavor, as will wreaths decorated with pumpkins.
You can also find more standard interior decor with pumpkin motifs, such as planters, cushions, and welcome mats.
Of course, one of the most common uses for pumpkin decorations is for Halloween. Pumpkins have long been associated with this holiday, so you won’t be short of options if you’re decorating with pumpkins for Halloween.
There are many pumpkins available with Jack o’ lantern scary faces, witch hats, or ghosts popping out of them, and these will add Halloween flavor to your home. There are many cute pumpkin lights and yard decorations to be found, too!
Pumpkin decorations can be subtle or they can be the first thing guests see when they approach your home.
If you’re having a Halloween party at home or are dressing up your yard for a busy night of trick or treating, then large and obvious decorations are ideal. There’s no need to be subtle! Look for large inflatables for your yard, bright lights, or pumpkin-covered drapings to cover your walls.
If you’re not decorating for a party and just want to add some seasonal flair to your home for a few weeks, then subtle decorations will be a better choice. Small ornaments on your mantle or table or a few pumpkins decorating your porch will put you in the autumnal or Halloween mood without overpowering the rest of your home.
