Lately I have been posting about my ‘spooky’ Halloween décor.
I love this haunted house I found at T.J. Maxx last year.
Today I wanted to share with you the sweeter side of Halloween. As a child I could hardly wait until Halloween eve. The anticipation of what costume I would wear and all of the candy that I was going to get was almost more than I could bare.
Maybe that is why I love Halloween and candy so much still to this day. The grandies know that there is always goodies to be found at grandma’s house. They also quickly learn what they can and can’t eat. Yup, some of it I save from year to year. This treat table in my entry is fresh and ready for a little sampling. I must confess that only the top third of the candy corns are new. hee-hee!
I made the little treats pillow a couple years ago.
For instance, these gumballs are not to be eaten. They are old enough that they are more like jaw breakers by now. Do you think that the little pumpkin stitchery will keep the grandies from sampling?
I often hear my adult kids asking, “Are these old or new?”
These non edible cupcakes are one of my favorite Halloween decorations.
My friend, Ann gave me this darling cake stand for my birthday years ago. Shortly after I was in a local store and spied the cupcake candles. Just knew they wanted to come home and sit upon my stand.
We have faux cupcakes so why not a faux candy apple? Can you believe the caramel is hot glue painted tan? This was a club favor last year.
Oops, every now and then a little ghoul sneaks in. Just gotta have a bit of spooky to go along with the sweet.
This spice rack is turned into a witches potion station.
Ingredients ready to brew up something wickedly delicious.
More treats ready to eat.
I got the set of 8 polka dot bowls on clearance for $5 at Thanksgiving Points porch sale.
There it goes again, a little more ghoul.
How cute is this pumpkin head girl offering you a sucker? Another gift from my friend, Ann. Who cares if the suckers are 3 years old? The only thing that spoils about suckers are maybe the little kids that eat them.
No cupcakes, but a jar full of fun liners is pretty sweet don’t you think?
Some treats are so wickedly good that they can only be made once a year. Such is the case with licorice caramels. For the recipe go here, Wonderfully Wicked Treats.
One last ghoul for you my ghoul friends! You know, you must experience the bitter to know the sweet!
I often hear people say they hate it when older children come trick or treating. I say as long as they are mannerly I don’t care how old they are. After all, I’m 50 something and I still like candy. Think anyone would mind if I knocked on their door? lol!
