Skeletons are hugely popular at Halloween, but have you ever thought about decorating with mankind’s friends? At Party City there are skeleton cats, dogs, rats, crows… Have a zoo of a cemetery on your front lawn, the kids will definitely get a scare!

What’s creepier than zombies shooting fog out their mouths? This would be a prime effect for a dinner party or haunted house. Find it at Walmart.
