    My Halloween style is mostly kid-friendly spooky. Nothing gory or truly nightmare inducing. I get over 300 trick or Treaters and I like to pit on a good show that doesn't scare the little kids. I go a little spookier inside where it is more private, and I love thaw busts. When we were going through the Grandin road catalog, both my son and I made thermite nbee one pick if budget allowed. So now I'll keep my fingers crossed for the Friday Freebie!

    My halloween decorating style is pretty nostalgic . . . traditional spooky I suppose, classic touches that spark conversation. Love Freebie Friday! Thanks for the opportunity to win :) I was pleasantly surprised at the prices of the GrandinRoad halloween items, especially the ones from Martha :)

    In our neighborhood, we have a mob of trick o' treaters on Halloween, so we do our best to make the experience a fun one. I would love to be the winner of these talking heads. Thanks for the opportunity!!!!

    Definitely kooky & kid-friendly. But we're also going for a pumpkin chic look this year with a lot of cream on orange and black with glitter and rhinestone accents. It looks much cooler than it sounds-promise.

  7. G-rated :-) some great candy bowls…a nice selection of carved pumpkins…and some fake spider webs.

    Campy & vampy. It's not just a kid's holiday anymore :-) . Have you ever been to Jerome, Arizona? Now that's how Halloween ought to be done!! Those things are fabulous!

    Bone chilling! At least… that's what I'm starting to go for as I pick decorations. I've never decorated before!
