I have gone through every page of this thread and LOVE LOVE LOVE everything. I am absolutely inspired! We hope in the next year or two to begin to add a 'more mature' haunt in our backyard (no blowmolds). There is endless imagination and inspiration in this thread! Thank you all so much!!

I want to explain that we started displaying many years ago with and for our autistic son who was terrified of Halloween. In the beginning everything had to be smiling and happy. As they say, if you build it, they will come. We started to have many visitors with very young children and children with special needs. So our cemetary is very cartoon-like with zero spooky factor.

VIEWER BEWARE! If 'cute' makes you squeamish... go no further! LOL For all you hardcore Haunters out there... think of it this way. Someone has to seduce all those impressionable toddler minds, get that seed planted, and get them hooked on Haunting! LOL

Here is our first cemetary. Welcome to Pumpkin Hill Cemetary!

Hilda, I was never a fan of blow molds until now. Your cemetary is fantastic. It is pure Halloween fun.
Thank you so much! That is what we were going for!! :D

Oh no! I must have worded that wrong... The front and side blowmold displays will stay the same. We want to add a scary/gothic/traditional haunt down on the terraces behind the house in our backyard. At the back of Sleepy Hollow Graveyard pictured above is a staircase down. That will lead down to the Yard Haunt. No wee ones allowed. Well, that is the long term plan. Thank you always for your kind words!

DSCF0514.jpg That last pic was our window display. We had a lot better pictures but the camera met an unfortunate end when someone left it on the top of her truck and drove away....oops.

Thanks! It just so happened that we had a huge dirt patch on the outside of our driveway because my husband put in a new piece of concrete...it allowed visitors to go around and see the tombstones as well. I had strings of strobe lights that had little sound machines attached that ran in between the stones. This year I am planning 2 major tombstone builds and more lighting effects.
