Holiday decorations aren't just for looks alone. These Halloween decoration ideas and how-tos from Party City use paper lanterns and rat cutouts to mark certain areas of your house as off-limits so you can maintain your family's privacy while your guests enjoy your party.

Haunted houses often boast creepy "keep out!" signs and are rife with ghosts protecting their property. When throwing a Halloween party of your own, however, it's not particularly polite to hire a poltergeist to keep guests from certain parts of the house you might want to keep off-limits. Even simple Halloween party decorating ideas can be striking, and our friends at Party City offer two ideas to turn festive decorations into functional barriers.
