    My Halloween style is a pumpkin patch growing up our walkway. Then buying lots of pumpkins to fill in what did not grow and giving the pumpkins away to the kids. So what do you call this style? Fun if you are a kid.

    Classic Horror with vintage elements and some cute hand towels. My son is as into Halloween as I am an my eight year old would love these.

    I decorate the outdoors kid friendly with a few eerie details. These two would be perfect on the entry hall table where we keep the candy. I have a "book" from Hallmark that holds the candy and talks when you open it. The kids love It!

    More kid friendly. All my grandchildren are younger and wouldn't step foot around my place if it was too scary. Wait until they're teenagers. Then we'll really have fun!

    Our style is scary…. love,love Grandin Road! Especially their Halloween decoration!!! 4 days ago we bought their spooky Grim Reaper pumpkin carriage and horse . Love the sound effects. 5 minutes ago bought the life size Endora the Witch with Misting Fog culdron!!! Can't wait to see it. If I could I would buy everything they have for Halloween. Can only get 1 or 2 a year. Would love to have Velma and Evander for the burst of scare these heads would make to guests. Endora would love the company of Velma and Evader!!!!!
