How to Choose Halloween Decorations in the UK - Buying Guide

Halloween decorations often tend to be thoughtless throwaways. That's why we're on a mission to help you find top quality items to turn your home into the spookiest of settings this October 31st. By choosing Halloween decorations that are made to last, you'll be able to use them year after year and reduce your household waste!

Look for Decorations That Fit Your Space

Look for Decorations That Fit Your Space

Before you even think about which decorations to buy, take a good look at your space and decide which areas you'd like to fill to create a haunting atmosphere. Are you after large items to set the tone, or smaller decorations to impress guests with a keen eye for detail? 


Halloween decorations that take up a large part of the wall or ceiling are a time-saving way to turn your space into a scary backdrop worthy of any horror movie. By investing in large decorations, you can also make a big statement with a relatively small budget. 

Look for Decorations That Fit Your Space

If you're hosting a sit-down meal, or even a seance, we recommend picking up some spooky table decorations. These are ideal for adding a frightening flourish to your halloween decor and can be dotted among the tableware, used to create a centrepiece or even incorporated into games!


Whichever decorations you choose, check the dimensions to ensure the best use of space. For example, garlands and banners tend to measure between 1.5 and 2 meters, so you'll need to make sure you have enough to bring your vision to life. We've included the key dimensions of almost all the items on our list, so you can make sure your purchase fits.

Pick Age-Appropriate Decorations to Set the Mood

Now for the fun part! What sort of mood are you aiming for this Halloween? Subtle eeriness, jovial fun or all-out-hysteria? Different age groups may appreciate different types of decoration, so in this section we'll look at the kinds of decorations best for children's parties vs grown-up gatherings.

Choose Fun, Colourful Decorations For Kids' Halloween Parties

Choose Fun, Colourful Decorations For Kids' Halloween Parties

For little ones, Halloween should be a fun celebration that's not too scary, especially if you have some sensitive souls on your guest-list. For young'uns, seek out cheerful decorations in bright and colourful shades to give the festivities a bit more of an upbeat twist.


Look for decorations with traditional motifs to give kids the good kind of shivers. Smiling skeletons, bouncing jack-o-lanterns, cute bats and anything with googly eyes are all excellent choices to help keep the mood light.

Trees, Crows and Cobwebs Create a More Sophisticated, Grown-Up Feel

Hoping to create a more subtle ambiance this Halloween? Why not adorn your abode with realistic spider webs, a quizzical crow or a leafless tree? If you're prepping for a more sophisticated Halloween soirée suitable for grown-up guests, then darker hues such as blacks and purples should fit the bill.


Another fun idea for this years' Halloween decorations is to hang a light-up slogan sign. These highly-instagrammable statement items are bang on trend and will set the mood within moments. Choose an eye-catching neon 'Boo!' banner or a 'Spooky' sign for the perfect Halloween photo op.

Lights Are the Key to a Haunting Atmosphere

Lights Are the Key to a Haunting Atmosphere

When it comes to Halloween, the lower the light, the more spinge-tingling the feels! That's why it's important to get the lighting just right. Little ones love the idea of Halloween, but too much darkness can be worrying for more anxious types. After all, while a murder mystery benefits from a darkened room, you'll need to make sure everyone can read their scripts.


To truly get into the Halloween spirit, candles are a fantastic mood-builder. They create that evocative, flickering glow that just can't be captured with an electric light. However, the obvious downside is the risk of fire, particularly important if you're hosting children. 


A much safer, if less ambient option, is a string of Halloween themed fairy lights. They're far safer, can be used time and again and garlands of bulbs will still create a low light setting that;s ideal for spooky soirees. Choose a suitably horrifying design, hang them up and summon spirits to your heart's content!

Choose Decorations You Can Reuse to Protect the Planet

Choose Decorations You Can Reuse to Protect the Planet

Why can't Halloween be like Christmas, where we make a tradition of getting out beloved decorations year after year and putting them pride of place in our homes? It would certainly benefit the planet by reducing waste. This year, make it your aim to buy high-quality reusable Halloween decorations, rather than overflowing the dustbins on November 1.


Look out for paper decorations, instead of cheap plastic ones. Or how about selecting hard-wearing, durable decorations your can store carefully after the celebrations are over and re-use instead of always buying new? 

Top 10 Best Halloween Decorations to Buy in the UK

Next we want to guide you through our picks of the ten best Halloween decorations of 2020 so you can select stylish items that also suit your budget. From Halloween lights to sinister table top decorations, we've picked well-made, beautiful decorations that will still give your guests the fright of their lives.
