Grandin Road - Life-Size Zombie Bride - HGTV design blog - halloween decoration

Our winner, picked at random, shared this story:

“My happiest memories of Halloween are all decorating with my mom. Halloween became my domain when I got older, around 11, I think. Mom and I would paint the front window with some spooky scene, and I would rake leaves all day long to stuff my dad’s clothes for my props. (I can’t help but think that part of that was maybe an excuse to get me to rake the lawn.) After hanging cobwebs EVERYWHERE and getting all of our decorations in just the right place, I would place the fog machine in such a place as to insight optimum fear in our trick-or-treaters. With my dad’s help of course. Unfortunately, my dad was a little too good at his job in all of the festivities, and he sent many a kid screaming bloody murder from our door step.”
