Beverly McClatchy loves Halloween. She started decorating when her son was young, helping with school carnivals. Her love of decorating spilled into her home and she began collecting Halloween and decorating from the front porch to the half bath and every room in-between. Now her passion is sharing with her granddaughter and creating traditions and memories with her. Listen in to the podcast as Beverly discusses with the Christmas Decorating Experts how she starts weeks in advance and carries the theme throughout the house, more fun than frightening!
