Candy Anyone?

Happy Halloween Everyone! I hope you've had a safe and fun one.

How do you serve your Trick or Treaters? Do you have a special bowl or book you serve from?

Usually, I have the big book from Hallmark, you know the one that sounds ghoulish and scary when you open the lid? This year I decided to go over the top and use the crystal and silver tray.

Sitting a top the black pedestal, a gift from my daughter, is the perfect location for the candy to rest and wait for those scary Trick or Treaters.











Sucker anyone?

Careful, keep an eye out for bugs......


Thank goodness they're fake. ;-)) or are they?
How about a caramel or two?
Love the reflection in the tray. Time to add the candles. Creative Candles, a company based out of Kansas City was hosting a give away during Nell Hill's Fall Open House. My girlfriend and I were fortunate to receive a pair of them as gifts. You might recall seeing them highlighted a couple of times on Eddie Ross blog, he's been to Kansas City a couple of times doing a seminar. So far, I haven't been lucky enough to meet him in person, but one day.......

I couldn't resist showing you this wonderful pedestal. Once white and now an estate black is a great staple in any one's home. From above.
One last shot........

It's almost time to turn the lights out and lite the candles. Don't let the ghost and goblins get you this Halloween night. Until next time....

Hi Girlfriend...

Ohh my...it's been way to long since I've been by for a visit! How are you doing, Darlin'? I hope that my note finds you well!

Well my dear, I do believe that this is the most exquisite and elegant trick-or-treat table/set up that I've seen! Oooh...I just adore your silver tray...it has a beautiful embossed pattern around the tray edges...gorgeous!!! And of course, all the beautiful glass and crystal...sooo pretty!
