If you’re a major Halloween fan, you don’t need an excuse to start celebrating. We’re here to assure you that you don’t have to wait until October or even September to get into a festive mood and show off your love of Halloween! The actual holiday is on October 31, of course, but planning for and getting excited about Halloween and all its traditions can last all year long.
Labor Day is generally the most common time people put out Halloween decorations, but if you want to start early, don’t let anything or anyone stop you. Especially for those who may have missed out on the full Halloween experience last year, now is your chance to make Halloween 2023 one for the record books! The joy of Halloween is putting your own spin on the holiday, whether you’re into classic pumpkins and orange and black décor or prefer to go for a more haunting, scary Halloween home design.
Spirit Halloween stores will start opening in early August, with our flagship store in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey opening on July 29, but our online store is open all year round. This means that July isn’t too early to start decorating for Halloween! We’ll be adding lots of new Halloween décor to our online store in the coming weeks and months so keep on checking for the latest and greatest! We have it all, from outdoor Halloween décor so your lawn can be totally spooky and fun, to indoor Halloween décor so every inch of your home can reflect your taste.
If you do want to decorate for Halloween early, here are some suggestions for how to go about it. Remember that you don’t have to put out all your Halloween decorations right away. If you’re the type who loves to fill every room of your home as well as your lawn with Halloween haunts, you can take your time and tease them out. This will encourage your neighbors to keep checking back in to see what you’ve added.
Perhaps you put up one or two items in July, a few more in August, even more in September, and save the piece de resistance, like a terrifying animatronic, for October. Or give people a surprise when they’re not expecting it and add an inflatable decoration to your yard right before or after Labor Day. The choice is yours! Right now, you have plenty of time to decide on the perfect look that represents your Halloween style.
If you’re a pop culture lover, we make it easy to show off your fandom.

And of course, we can’t forget The Nightmare Before Christmas décor, featuring Jack Skellington, Sally, Oogie Boogie, Zero, and more!
One easy way of decorating is to add the perfect Halloween lighting, from pathway lights to LED projection lights that will bathe your home in the glow of purple and green witches or orange trick-or-treat pumpkins.
