Candy Corn Decor!

I've seen it everywhere this week and last, but I could not help throwing my own candy corn creation into the decoblog mix.  Decorating with candy corns is at your own risk, especially if you like them!  They are not my favorite candy so it is not hard for me to avoid them.  My parents were here over the weekend and almost ate my entire centerpiece!  Fortunately, I anticipated this problem and bought two bags.  Jim hates candy corn so no risk there.

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.  
Elizabeth (4.5 years old) loves to help decorate and window clings are an easy way for her to help.  She does the design and installation.  I think she did a great job!
