Halloween Yard Flamingos

by bev-owens

A look at the fun and funky yard decorations for Halloween, SkeleMingos and DevilMingos. A new twist on the familiar pink flamingos dressed for the holiday.

A Fun, Funky, And Retro Look For Your Yard This Halloween

Decorating for Halloween has become as much fun as decorating for Christmas. Have you seen the pink flamingo yard decorations all dressed for Halloween? I think they are just a real hoot! You have a choice as to whether you want your flamingos dressed like a skeleton (referred to as Skelemingos) or maybe the devil suits you better. That's right you can choose the Devilmingo for your front yard. Personally, I think a flock of Skeleton Flamingos with one pair of Devil Flamingos would look really fetching in a yard decorated like a Haunted Paradise.

Personal Memory Involving Pink Plastic Flamingo Yard Decorations

I have a fond memory of the year that I celebrated turning 40. Well, at the time I was not too happy about reaching that milestone but I digress. A group of my friends were all in the same "age boat" sailing into the 4th decade of our lives and we loved to pull pranks on each other.

In the wee hours of the morning on my 40th birthday, I was walking down my long driveway to retrieve the morning paper while letting my dog out for his morning potty break. (I'm good at multi tasking, ya know). Anyway back to the story...I notice my dog seems agitated and is standing still growling at something in the front yard. Chills ran up my spine as I feared there was somebody in my front lawn. "What's the matter boy?" I whispered and then I slowly turned my head to see who was there...

"Oh my Word!" There in my yard were 40 (yes 40!) tacky pink plastic flamingos. In the center of these grazing pink birds was an even tackier sign proclaiming to the world that I had indeed reached the 40th year of my birth.

It seems my prankish friends found a guy who would plant signs in a yard in the middle of the night along with anything else you might want him to plant. It was hysterically funny at the time and you wouldn't believe how many people stopped that day and wanted to buy the flamingos!

too bad the flamingos weren't dressed for the occassion!

I Will Bet You Will Be The First On Your Block This Halloween

If you are big into decorating your yard for Halloween, I would venture to bet that you will be the first on your block to use the Halloween Yard Flamingos as a part of your decorations. I would also bet that you will have people driving slowly by to gawk at these clever birds.

They can be nestled into a garden area or as I mentioned before incorporated into a scene that looks like a Haunted Paradise.

Use your own imagination and go as far or as little as you want with these Skele-mingos and/or the Devil-mingos in your Halloween fun this year. They really are very retro and will add whimsey to your lawn. Don't you think?

Will you decorate your Yard with flamingos this Halloween?

I like this new Halloween version! I have seen lots of the pink ones, but spooky ones haven't appeared in our neighborhood as of yet. Will be keeping eyes open!
