Glad you are ok. Double check to make sure there is no undercarriage damage in the daylight.

That metal grille is attached by short wood screws.
If you look underneath you should see the small holes that attached it to the fiberglass front cap. The screws have a small washer and the screws just go thru the opening of the grill at about 6 places.
The main thing is to make sure you don't put long screws in that will penetrate thru the cap and show up as a ding on the outside.

Hope this helps you re-install the grille.
Have a great holiday season!
