Here is my candy corn creation using the same hurricane I have been using since summer and a platter I bought on clearance from HomeGoods (I think) after Halloween last year.
I think the spider adds a fun creepy factor and also helps deter little (or big) sticky fingers.
Here's a view of our current kitchen eating area all dressed up for fall. This picture was taken right before dinner last night so you can also see my unironed placemats. I bought the leaf garlands at the Dollar Tree back in August not knowing what I would do with them. They are pretty good quality and when I use two together, they look really full and more realistic.
