treat your tabletop. . .

to some ghostly goodies. Dress up your cordials with candy corn, or sugar the rim black and add gummy spiders. Create colorful and to-die for treats for the tummy.  Last year I made RIP brownies (aka dirt) by cutting Milano cookies in half, writing RIP in black frosting and making grass with green frosting. And because most treats need a clean up, I love this easy candy corn napkin treatment for a formal table or there are plenty of great, cooky cocktails napkins available in the stores or online, last year we purchased this fabulous Don’t drink & fly set.  You can serve up more spookiness with a Monster bar, including easy to adhere danger labels and festive coasters. To top it all off a glitter chandelier adds just the right amount of sparkle. Happy haunting to all hosts!
