​Fall is here and the holidays are coming and Halloween’s right around the corner! So, what do you have planned for your family or business and all the fun and tricks that come with this spooky day? Have you thought about utilizing your patio cover or awning to spruce up your storefront or home?
Besides putting out figurines, pumpkins, and inflatables, you can do a whole host of other things to make your business or home stand and be family friendly and fun. Check out some of these ideas: 


– Decorating your Awning: For the backyard, you can string up pumpkin lights or decorate your awning with cotton cobwebs. You can even hang spiders and other creepy, ghoulish objects like hands and skeletons from the sides of the awning. You can also wrap vines and other thorny – but not sharp – branches.
– Patio Cover: Just like the awning, you can hang and string up lights. You can also hang curtains with a creepy crawly theme.  
– Backyard: You can create a Halloween haunt activity oasis by setting up booths for apple bobbing, dart throwing at pumpkins, and more. Think about what your kids might like and set up fun things they would enjoy.
– Front Yard: Try setting up a candy stand for trick-or-treaters or dotting the grass with fake hands and feet, skeletons, and cauldrons.
– Businesses and Storefronts: You can do all of the above, tailored to the setup of your business. But, since you have larger space, you can make your business a Halloween pit stop by adding specials and sales. Remember, you can put things in the windows, hang stuff from the patio cover or awning. Also, have your employees dress up and invite guests in.

​Halloween is meant to be a fun day you and your family can enjoy while indulging in candies and enjoying the fall season. Adding the extra holiday flare to your home or business is just a nice way to create memories for your loved ones and also generate more business for your store.
