(All of the containers I use in this post are things that I've had for years. Some of them you can still buy, but some you can't. I'll try to share where I got things when I can.)
This is the first thing I put together this year. I've had these out for a little while (so forgive the fact that they're looking a little low. Some of us can't resist the decorations :)
I also bought these goodies...
Here are some things I did with those eyeballs :)
This is a vase that I've had for a while, but I bought it for about $3 at Michael's and I'm pretty sure that you still can. I added some super cheap paper from the dollar spot at Target to it and a couple of Halloween embellishments. the skulls, mice and snakes? A buck a package at either the dollar store or the grocery store.
This is a mini ice bucket (again, I've had it for a while. Bought it at an antiques store). I just layered the stuff in there. They layering would be really cute in a great bog apothecary jar, but I don't have any of those. The crow is from Michael's.
This is just a cup that I bought years ago to drink my mudslides out of :) They're not cheap (about $6 each at Cost Plus) but I love the fact that it looks like a cauldron.
I dipped in to my stemware stash for these too:
I don't drink champagne that often, but these would be so cute at a place setting for a fall dinner. The little pumpkins are cute and cheap for a little scatter/confetti for a pretty table.
I also layered the pumpkins and candy corn in the ice bucket for a different look.
I also keep these candle holders out on my dining room table all year. Just switch out the candy and the ribbon for a different look for every season.
Finally, a re-do of the first picture with the vases. This time with a different fall candy in each one. They were getting low anyway :)
My husband is going to be soooo glad that I finally got this post up. He's been trying to eat this candy for a week!
