Dec 07, 2023

Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year. But, really, it’s my favorite season, because Halloween isn’t just a holiday. It’s the main event at the end of Spooky Season. And because it’s such a huge deal in my household, I’m always on the lookout for the coolest, best Halloween decor. And I’m looking for the sort of decor that doesn’t just look like something you’d put up for a Halloween party but the sort of decor that you want to keep up in your house for the entire Spooky Season! This list is chock full of some of my go-to favorites, some new finds, and all sorts of pieces in-between.

Spiders are one of the coolest Spooky Season symbols, and this giant (literally fifty-nine feet!) spider is the perfect addition to your front yard if you’re looking for something a little scary but not super intimidating.
