Brainstorming Halloween decoration ideas? Ghosts and ghouls are a safe bet when you wanna get ghastly. Skeletons are sure to send chills through the neighborhood. Plant a witch and her cauldron on the front lawn and you’ve got a recipe for instant fright.
But you know what’s really scary? The fact that it’s been 37 years since the movie ‘Ghostbusters’ debuted — and a terrifying 71 years since Charles Schulz launched the ‘Peanuts’ cartoon franchise. Oh, but we pine for nostalgia, don’t we? I’ve never seen a Snoopy Halloween decoration I didn’t love, and apparently I’m not alone.
Right now, shoppers are scrambling for these throwback characters. Add to the list retro pop culture icons like Scooby Doo, Beetlejuice and even good ol’ Minnie Mouse, and you’ve got some of the most coveted Halloween decorations of 2021. And if the very thought of hunting down these inflatable lawn ornaments gives you goosebumps, take heed: the Home Depot has them all in stock even as we spook...I mean speak.

Oops, looks like you fed your giant gremlin after midnight and now you have chaos on the lawn! This six-foot homage to Stripe, the evil gremlin from the 1984 classic, 'Gremlins.' This monster stands a full six feet tall, and he’s lit! Lit with LEDs, that is.
This mischievous creature also self-inflates quickly and comes with stakes to hold him down (good luck, stakes!).
Make your house the Magic Kingdom of the block this year! This Minnie Mouse Halloween decoration is a no-brainer for Disney fanatics, and trick-or-treaters will adore being greeted by her at your door.
She’s a manageable three and a half feet, self-inflates and lights up with LEDs. She also comes with tethers to keep her in place.
Miss TGIF TV shows on Thursday nights? Well, this ‘Friends’ Thanksgiving decoration will be there for you every night of the week from Halloween to Turkey Day.
