We always love to see how citizens around the world celebrate Halloween. Aside from being another confirmation of what we’ve always believed (That is: Halloween is the best holiday ever and is assuredly taking over the world), it is also a great way to see how other decorators overcome challenges to create amazing displays. That is certainly the case in Stony Stratford, Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, where John I. found a nifty answer to the problem of decorating in a very tight space.
“Having a very small porch which leads directly onto pavement makes Halloween decorating a bit tricky,” John tells us. “AtmosFX came to the rescue again with this year’s spider theme, and the neighbors love it.”
The AtmosFX Decoration John is referring to is the Creepy Crawlies 2 Decoration Collection – one of the company’s earliest. There are four icky critters contained in the collection – spiders, snakes, cockroaches and rats – all of which can get a visitor’s heart racing when used in just the right place.
And in John’s case, high above his porch is exactly the right place! Of course, with such a narrow approach to John’s front door, there really is no other viable location to place the projector. But John turns that into his advantage: Because people don’t expect a projector to be pointing down above them, it really sells the illusion! It is really hard not to believe that spiders are not pouring out of John’s home.
And of course, that’s exactly what John was going for. And for us, it is a great reminder that, even if you don’t have a lot of time or space to create a giant Halloween decoration display, the right decoration in the right place can make a world of difference.
