Genius Ways to Decorate Your Kansas City Deck for Halloween and Fall Parties
Now that summer has bid us good-bye, there’s a chill in the air and dusk is devouring the daylight hours. However, fear not! This is a special time of year because you can delight in bringing your imagination to life by decorating your deck to your hearts content.
Festive Ways Kansas City Decks Pay Homage to the Autumn Season
If you love using your outdoor living space to entertain friends and family, get ready to blow their minds! These incredible design ideas will transport them to another dimension as they’re enjoying savory pumpkin pie with a steaming cup of spiced cider.
Set the Mood with Lighting
Pumpkin Candles – This creative decoration is the perfect way to add a warm glow to your Thanksgiving dinner table or Halloween party. There are a couple ways to accomplish this, but both involve slicing a pumpkin in half and cleaning out the bottom half down to the rind. Next, melt wax around a wick. Once the wax cools, light and enjoy! If waiting for wax to harden isn’t your forte, you can always set tea lights or a pillar candle inside the hollowed-out rind. Either way, you’re bound to get plenty of compliments! If you’re crafty with a paintbrush, add some designs to the pumpkin’s outer shell. Just be sure it’s clean and dry before you begin.
String o’ Lights – Orange lights are ideal for both Thanksgiving and Halloween, plus they’ll keep the party going late into the night.
If you want to be holiday specific, it’s easy to find string sets with luminescent autumn leaves, turkeys, jack o’ lanterns, bats, ghosts, and creepy skulls.
Kansas City decks that have pergolas make decorating a breeze because these structures are ideal for hanging festive lights and perfect for spider webs! This outdoor living feature makes it easy to kick things up a notch because cornstalks, goofy scarecrows, and grinning skeletons can be tied to the posts. However, don’t stop there! Be the host with the most by hanging ghosts from the pergola’s slats, so they can whirl in the wind.
Illuminated Table Display – Setting the holiday mood is frighteningly easy when you weave a string of lights around mini pumpkins, colorful gourds, screaming skulls, and creepy crawlies. Be sure to scatter real autumn leaves over the lights for the full effect.
Invoke the Spirit of the Season with a Crackling Fire
Capture the essence of Halloween by placing a chiminea on your deck and flanking its base with jack o’ lanterns. When Thanksgiving rolls around, surround it with pumpkins and gourds of various shapes and sizes. As the night grows colder, these festive ensembles will create a warm and inviting atmosphere that’s sure to inspire guests to gather round and give thanks or enjoy a spine-chilling story.
If a fire pit is part of your outdoor living space, lucky you! Have fun surrounding it with the same décor, then watch the magic happen. If you want to go a step further, set a stone gargoyle on the lip of the fire pit to protect your party from evil spirits.
