Halloween is less than two weeks away and that means families everywhere are in the final stretch of putting costumes together and getting the home ready. Halloween is the perfect excuse for people of all ages to dress up as their favorite characters and homes should seem just as spirited for the trick-or-treaters.

Set up a graveyard
If your kids are old enough to trick-or-treat on their own, it may be a fun idea to spook the kids who come to your house for candy. An easy way to make the front of your home extra eerie is to hang decorations on your trees or to build fake tombstones out of plywood and paint.

Host a party
Another great way to get friends and family in the witching mood is to host a costume party in honor of Halloween. Make sure everyone dresses up and then have guests cast their ballots for the best costumes – gift the winner with a gag prize to keep with the theme.

Decorate the home with flowers
If you're looking for a subtle way to boost the decor in your home for the upcoming holiday, you may want to invest in Halloween flower decorations. A bouquet like Teleflora's Spooky Sweet will add the perfect amount of Halloween spirit to your family room or kitchen table. The collection of orange roses, orange carnations and green button mums come in a black glass cube vase with a large googly-eyed spider that is sure to scare your guests at first glance.
