The Neat Retreat: Halloween Inflatables

Suzanne Oliver
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Suzanne here with my favorite holiday. Come August, I start scanning the stores for Halloween decorations, eager to dress up the front yard with tombstones, skeletons and bats. Given my yard’s small size, I only have room for one inflatable — a Dracula holding a pumpkin. If I had the room, I’d be one of those fanatics with 20 inflatables all going at once. I love driving by those houses with spectacular displays, not a foot of grass left untouched.

Home Depot is the go-to retailer for inflatables, selling the majority of its 27 options online — everything from witches and grim reapers to black cats and spiders. They self-inflate in seconds and are durable enough to use year after year. Many even have moving, lighted parts. Best part is, they’re a cinch to store. So go a little crazy, buy a handful, and be the talk of the neighborhood!
