How to Decorate your Boat for Halloween

Halloween is a great holiday for boaters.  The weather is cool and crisp, the nights are still clear with bright stars and boaters are excited to have one last get-together with their friends on the water.  If you plan on entertaining on your boat for the most fun holiday of the year, then you must decorate appropriately!

Ideas you should consider when decorating your boat:

  • Music Playlist: Good tunes make the best of any celebration.  Create a playlist of music based on your crowd and mix in a few fun Halloween-based songs to keep the party in the Halloween spirit!
  • Cobwebs: You can easily make your boat look creepy with fake spider webs.  Cover your doorways, windows and more to get a spooky outdoor feel.  Adding fake spiders would be a good touch, too!
  • Lights: Decorate your boat with orange lights.  You can find these at any retail store and they are perfect for stringing on the inside and outside of your boat.  You can even get black lights and glow-in-the-dark items to give an extra suspense-type of feel.
  • Fog and strobe lights: These two are always fun for spooky Halloween environments by giving the feel of a haunted house!
  • Halloween inflatables and character decorations.  You can buy skeletons, mummies, ghosts and more to help decorate the inside and outside of your boat.

All of these ideas are sure to help you create a festive Halloween party whether you are entertaining for adults or kids.  Include these easy-to-do tips to your Halloween boat party this year and it is sure to be one your friends and family won’t forget!
