When Should You Start Decorating for Halloween Every Year?

Halloween indoor decoration

Everyone knows that Halloween is on October 31st. But the Halloween spirit starts much earlier. We’ve come to a point where the entire month of October is now referred to as “Spooktober”. Meanwhile, stores start selling Halloween decorations as early as August. Some people say that’s a little too early. But how do you decide when to start decorating for Halloween?

We don’t know about you, but Halloween is definitely our favorite time of the year. Just one single day does not feel like enough for such an occasion. It’s especially because we don’t even get a national holiday. What if you’re too busy that day to celebrate? Also, who wants to go to work in costume instead of partying with friends?

But we digress. We’re not here to talk about Halloween costumes. We’re here to talk about Halloween decorations. Deciding when to put up Halloween decorations depends a lot on what your plans are. It also depends on your lifestyle and household practices. We don’t really believe in one size fits all solutions to any problem. Keep reading to find what suits you.

How Do You Decide When is a Good Time to Start Decorating for Halloween

So as we’ve already mentioned, when you start decorating depends a lot on you. If you are a very festive kind of person, you might want to celebrate “Spooktober” as opposed to a one-day-only Halloween. If you’re a very busy person with not much time for festivities, you might be better off decorating on the 31st itself.

Another factor that affects it is how big you want to go on the décor. You can find some great last-minute Halloween decorations outdoor or indoors. You should really decide the type of decorations you want to go with along with deciding when you want to start. There’s also the matter of whether or not you already have your materials at home or you need to buy them.

If you need to buy Halloween room decorations, you will definitely need to take into account how early you need to place your orders. Not every item will be available in your local store. Some items that you purchase online might be shipped from overseas, in which case it’s best to order a couple of months early.

We will mention that decorating before the leaves turn brown might be overkill. This doesn’t include people who choose to have a general spooky aesthetic for home décor all year round. Those people do exist, and there’s nothing wrong with that either. However, if you intend to only decorate for Halloween, at least wait until you can do fall and Halloween together.

You should also decide beforehand if you only want Halloween party decorations outdoor or if you would like to include the entire house. Decorating the outside might be easier and more worth the effort. Regardless of whether you have plans or not, the exterior is for the trick-or-treaters. We make the whole neighborhood look spooky to entertain the kids.

Decorating According to the Time It Takes

When do you decorate for Halloween? If you want to get ahead, you can start buying Halloween decorations at any point of the year. You can even start planning for next year’s Halloween as you are decorating for this year. It’s best to stock up early and know what theme you want beforehand.

Halloween is a big-time rush for the retail industry. And the closer you get to the actual date, the more likely it is that the good home décor will be sold out. If you are the kind of person who likes to be meticulous about your theme, stock up early. If you’re not that high maintenance, you can start shopping around August or September.

If you love Halloween and can’t contain your excitement, you could put your decorations up at that time too. For many people, the harvesting theme goes hand in hand with more pagan or occult elements. Hang some fake cobwebs above that pumpkin on your porch! It’ll look awesome, we’re sure.

Is it too early to decorate for Halloween? It’s probably the most socially acceptable to have decorations up during the month of October. It doesn’t have to be extreme. Just do enough to set the vibe that you are ready for the spooky season. If you’re not about that long-term commitment, you could try doing “Halloweek”.

This is basically celebrating 7 days of Halloween, starting from October 25th. It’s more organized than simply putting up your decorations on the 31st. It’s also safer because in case you get booked at work last minute, you know you already took care of the decoration. But you can always decorate on an actual day. It just feels less worth the effort.
