New Halloween Decoration Ideas Spread the Spookiness Inside and Out

Naperville, IL, October 9, 2006 – This season, do not just simply decorate the
frighteningly familiar haunted house, says Factor Card & Party Outlet, the leading party
supplies retailer. This Halloween, the most innovative Halloween decorators are
increasingly throwing open those creaky doors and spreading the spooky feeling
outdoors as well, across lawns, bushes and yards, with innovative decorating ideas.
"Halloween decorations are going far beyond the usual this year as haunted houses give
way to haunted landscapes," says Sean Wheatley, of Factory Card & Party Outlet.
"Increasingly, Halloween decorators are greeting their Halloween party guests or
unsuspecting passers-by with frightening creative yard decorations."
From new Halloween decoration ideas, to creepy tombstones and garrulous gargoyles,
Factory Card & Party Outlet offers these Halloween decorating tips to make your holiday
frightfully fun:

• Create a ghostly graveyard complete with tombstones, ghouls and creepy creatures.
Place several tombstones throughout your front yard. Zombies and mummies will rise
from the dead with ghoulish Ground Breakers placed near tombstones. Don’t forget to
add a severed hand, bones and skulls for a truly terrifying look.

• Inflatable yard Halloween Decorations are a convenient, yet spooky, way to add the
Halloween feeling to your front yard. Extra large spiders, graveyards and gargoyles are
sure to frighten those who dare to pass by.

• Decorate your trees and bushes to surprise and scare. Place hanging skeletons and
spooky figures in trees. Motion activated flying ghosts will create a spooky surprise.
Stretch spider webs through branches and bushes to "catch" everyone’s attention.

• Ghoulish figures placed throughout the house or party room are sure to make guests
gasp. Sound and motion activated ghosts and ghouls will make guests jump. Hang these
creatures from ceilings to swoop down on unsuspecting guests. Stretch white spider web
in corners and on furniture and ceilings and don’t forget to add the spiders! Extra large
12’ fabric web provides double the scares!

• Greet guests with spooky Halloween door and window decorations. If your frightened
guests actually dare to make it through your yard, door greeters and doorway curtains
create an eerie feel as soon as your guests arrive. Skull, cat and jack ‘o lantern window
posters fit in your window and give off an eerie glow when illuminated with interior
lighting. Drips of Blood decorations hang in windows to create the frightening illusion of
dripping blood. Don’t forget to add light strands and pre-lit decorations in creepy
Halloween figures like skulls bats, pumpkins and spooky eyes.

• Scary Scene Setters cover your room with Halloween horror. Giant room decorations
cover entire walls. Extra large posters stand over 5 ft. high. Create an entire ghostly
scene in one simple step. Scene setters will create the illusion of graveyards, haunted
houses, catacombs and more.

• Spooky Halloween sounds and special effects create the ultimate creepy
atmosphere. Add eerie Halloween sounds and sights with spooky sound effects CDs
and DVDs. Place Halloween black lights and strobe lights throughout the room to add a
mysterious glow. A fog machine will create a haunting fog that keeps guests wondering
what lurks beneath.

"Factory Card has a full range of indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations," adds Sean
Wheatley. We hope everyone has a ghoulishly good time this holiday."
