Dolores Catania's Front Yard Is Creepily Decked Out for Halloween (PICS)

The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member —and her giant skeleton — are getting ready to welcome trick-or-treaters.

Dolores Catania has an incredible backyard, no matter what time of year it is. In the clip above, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member offers a guided tour of her outdoor space, which has a pristine pool, fountains, a sauna, and an outdoor kitchen. (In case you're interested, the RHONJ cast member has been known to make her Sunday sauce outside, and she even fries up meatballs by the pool.) But as Dolores' recent Instagram photos proved, her front yard is also pretty spectacular around Halloween. 

How to Watch

The New Jersey mom has proven her love for the spooky holiday before. Back in 2020, she concocted a genius costume that saw her dressed in a corset-style outfit with bandages draped over her head and arms and covered in fake blood and eerie, drawn-on stitches. She even accessorized the look with a medical IV pole. In her caption, she cheekily called the look her "best surgery yet!" (Dolores has never been shy about discussing plastic surgery.) 

Though she hasn't revealed her costume for this year, the Halloween lover did show off her spooky yard decor. It may just have you screaming in delight. 

Dolores Catania's Halloween Decor 

In her October 8 Instagram Stories, Dolores shared a look at her sprawling front lawn. "Love my Halloween lights," she wrote, adding a message of thanks to her go-to decor company, Christmas Designers of New Jersey.

A perimeter of orange and purple lights surrounded the lawn and trimmed Dolores' roof. There were also trees covered in orange and purple fairy lights. Though the lights were enchanting, a giant skeleton stole the show.

A towering statue of The Nightmare Before Christmas character Jack Skellington had a central place on the lawn, and the prop didn't just stand there — it sang! The statue was singing "Jack's Lament," a song from the 1993 Tim Burton film.

Based on Dolores' decorating history, it's a safe bet that she'll be calling her holiday decorators back as soon as they've packed up the Halloween decor. Last year, the animal-lover had started decorating for Christmas by November 17. 

“It’s that time again,” the New Jersey native wrote. Her post included a clip of workers from Christmas Designers of NJ assembling the tree and decking it out with blue and white lights. Dolores' boyfriend, Paul "Paulie" Connell, got swept up in the holiday spirit. 

“The magical time of the year is here, Tiz the season to be jolly, even if it does take a couple of [glasses] of Vino,” he joked on Instagram. He added how “excited” he was for the design company to “finish the rest.”
