Holiday Inflatables

Warning: A non-numeric value encountered in /home/customer/www/ on line 398

Every year around Halloween time, surprising decorations begin to spring up on people’s yards and houses. Usually these decorations are fake tombstones, scattered limbs, dead bodies and things of that macabre nature. However, some houses go all out and have inflatable decorations that really up the ante for the rest of the neighborhood. This year I saw several types of inflatable Halloween decorations that were really spectacular. This story from the Daily Review Atlas in Illinois talks about one family’s mission to gather as many inflatable Halloween decorations as possible:

“Roger and Shana Mettler’s front yard is guarded by three ghosts, a cat, Frankenstein and a skull with glowing red eyes. These inflatables are just some of the Halloween decorations that they have been collecting for the past four years.

He finds decorations at K-Mart, Walmart, Shopko, eBay and even yard sales. It now takes him about two to four hours to set up all the decorations.”

Obviously though, I’m not going to talk about Halloween decorations in this post because that day has passed. Instead, I am going to focus on cool ideas for inflatable decorations that you can put up for other holidays.

Since Thanksgiving is coming up, you should be on the lookout for an inflatable turkey decoration that is maybe wearing a pilgrim’s hat, mixing the two primary traditions of the holiday together. If you’re having some young family members to your home, they will revel in having their pictures taken with the inflatables in your yard. One of the biggest parts of Thanksgiving is the Macy’s Day Parade, which features inflatable characters that we all love, so there’s no harm in having some of that decorative spirit at your home.

Just remember that inflatables do not just have to be bounce houses or inflatable slides, but can be used to spruce up the d├ęcor outside of your home for the holidays.
