Halloween Sweet Treat Table

I knew the minute I decorated the foyer entry table in a more formal setting that I would do another table in the living room but this time it would be to the kids liking!!!

{Sweet Treats}

Halloween Treat Table

This little table is actually my night stand!  I love to change out tables and stands from room to room! It’s such an easy way to get a new look :D

We’re not big celebrators of Halloween and last year I didn’t even buy candy.  None.   Not one single bag.  Not one.

But this year, I wanted to do something fun for the kids.

Halloween Treat Bowl

Yes, I had little monsters waiting on me to finish taking the photos so they could munch!

A little secret between you and me…… I used crumpled up newspaper in the bottom of the bowl and sat the candy on top! I only needed one bag to “fill” the bowl.  A little trick….. for my treaters.  {they weren’t amused!}

Halloween Wall Decoration

I’m still debating if I add any thing to the black plate.  Any ideas? 

Trick or Treat Plate

I’ve never been a huge fan of this saying and decided to change it out. 

Halloween Treat Sign

Do you remember my “Family Wall Art”?  I simply turned the sign around, designed a new saying in Photoshop, printed it out on photograph paper,and used two sided tape to hold them in place.   Would anyone be interested in a download? 

Fall Decor - pumkin on a pedistal

Spring colored candle sticks got a quick coat of white spray paint!  Then I hot glued a small white plate to the top.

   Halloween Ideas - Candy Corn pots

Terra cotta pots painted up like candy corn!  This is a Halloween project I did with the kids a few years ago :D

  33. Thank so much everyone for all your fabulous comments

    Mary~
    I made it using a curtain rod and an old piece of base molding. See the sign here http://dittledattle.blogspot.com/2010/04/family-wall.html

    Then updated the curtain rod here http://dittledattle.blogspot.com/2010/05/have-you-ever-been-all-over-three.html

    And all I did was flip the sign around and designed the letters in Photoshop. I will be adding a FREE download soon :D

    What kind of paint do you have there? Is it textured? Or wallpaper?

  36. This is such a cute arrangement. I really like your "Treats" sign, the candy corn pots, everything really. :)

  37. Carrie,
    You are a clever one indeed. :) I also like switching things around, moving them from room to room. It's a great and cost free way to make a space look new and different.
    Your Halloween vignette is so cute. Again, I like how you used what you had. Not only is it way cheaper but then you don't have to worry about storing it later.

    Thank you so much for linking this fun and creative post to my linky Motivated Monday party at Becolorful.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I really like your decorations! I love the "cute" side of Halloween! You've inspired me to get out my box(es) of Halloween decorations!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Could I have the download you used for the curtain rod words?

  41. It's cute what one of the plates says. It's too cute to spook.
