Whoo-oo-oo-oo. It’s Halloween! Zombies, witches and ghosts are all gathering at the most spook-tacular events to scare the dickens out of each other. So why not beat the chill of the fall season by inviting them over for some hot dog mummies by your Los Angeles swimming pool? We’re guessing you’re already excited, right?
Don’t just limit your spooky decor to your front porch this Halloween. For individuals, lucky enough to experience the Los Angeles moderate-to-warm weather year-round, Halloween is a favored backyard celebration. So, today we’re bringing you few ideas that you can use to make your backyard spook-tacular this October 31st – they’re fun but spooky enough to make your guest scream “eek”.
In celebration of the seasonal tradition, here is our special ‘treat,’ though it a little unsuited for your trick or-treating goddie bag.
Transform Your Swimming Pool Into A “Terror”ific Lake
First things first, before you even think about decorating your Los Angeles backyard, you have to ensure that your center piece (in this case the swimming pool) is noteworthy. If you want to go all out, try transforming your pool into the Red Sea, mimicking the Black Lake from Harry Potter or the Black Lagoon from one of the most popular Halloween film, “Creature from the Black Lagoon.”
For something simple, yet powerful think pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins. A Halloween celebration is simply not completed without a classic pumpkin. You can decorate your pool with glowing pumpkins. Whether you craved a Grinning Jack or a Jack-O’-Totem is up to you, there plenty of ways in which you can decorate pumpkins for your swimming pools and arrange them on spooky pool floats.
And, if pumpkins aren’t your style, you can always go for a floating ghost, ghoul or goblin.
Trick Or-Treat Goodies For Your Los Angeles Party Guests
Halloween is not Halloween without the treats or candies. Hang a zombie head piñata in your Los Angeles backyard to satisfy your guests sugar cravings or cut a faux pumpkin in half to make a spooky lidded bowl for holding candies.
There are also several fun recipes that you can try for your Halloween pool party, from Mummy Hot Dogs and Mummy Calzone to Witch’s Fingers and Witch’s Bubbly Brewed Punch.
Don’t forget to whip up some ‘morgue-a-rita’ to keep the partly lively!
The Rest Is Up To You
It’s up to you how you want to decorate the area around your Los Angeles pool. Arrange a flying bat wreath, hang some floating ghostly shapes, craft a giant rat or placed some cut-out of arched-back scaredy–cat black cats in your backyard. There’s simply no shortage of ideas that you can try, whether you choose to transform your backyard into a cemetery with thick fog or a witch’s lair is up to you.
In Los Angeles, the backyard and swimming pool is not just meant for summer fun. It’s the perfect place to gather with your friends and family year-round for the most festive events. And, what better time to do so than Halloween.
