    oh, Mary, I’m going WAAAYYYY back here…when I was a child my favorite Halloween treat/candy was a Chunky chocolate square…raisins and nuts in a block of chocolate…I don’t think they make those anymore. You always have the BEST ideas for fun dining…and I freely admit that I have borrowed more than a few as bases for my own every day is a special day tablescapes…thank you for all the fun!

    I have been a member of the Black Hat Society for a long time. Love Halloween and all the festivities. I guess my favorite candy was anything with caramel involved. Memories of going house to house to beg for treats then returning to a friend’s house to dump out our bags and do some trading followed by dunking for apples ,having cider and doughnuts then hearing scary stories are all wonderful. Happy Halloween.

  8. Leslie
    September 15, 2017 at 6:57 am

    My favorite Halloween treats are Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and caramel apples. I love your decorating and party ideas, particularly the cauldron cupcakes!

  9. September 15, 2017 at 6:59 am

    Oh, Double, double, boil and trouble a pot full of brew!! As a child (my favorite TREAT on that special night) was the popcorn balls that one of our neighbors made and some homemade candy apples..never had store bought but that was a loooong time ago!! Popcorn balls are still my favorite!! I usually do my Halloween table beginning the 1st of October..therefore, any of those would be a welcome addition!! I’m a BLACK HAT MEMBER and a Facebook friend..I wish all lots of luck in this giveaway!! 🕸🕷🍁🍿⚰️🔮👻🎃💀👁

    My favorite Halloween treat is a Heath bar. You don’t see them as much anymore, but they are so delcicios. I’d pick them out of my Halloween stash and eat them first.

  16. Monica Estes
    September 15, 2017 at 7:21 am

    My guilty delight is miniature Snickers candy bars. You know, you can’t eat just one! Halloween is my favorite season to decorate. Your table are amazing, as always. Keep those ideas coming.

  18. September 15, 2017 at 7:35 am

    Hard to pick just one, York Peppermint Patties, and Milky Way Midnight bars come to mind first. But I won’t turn down anything chocolate, LOL!! Thanks for the lovely roundup of Halloween fun, but I’ll come back to look more in October, I’m still in fall leaf mode for a bit longer. Follower via Bloglovin.

    I always look forward to seeing your blog show up in my email in box. I know that I’m in for a real “treat” especially around any Holiday. So, it’s an easy “trick” to see a few of your creative ideas to show up around my house or on my festive table. My favorite Halloween candy are those cute little Pumpkins that taste sorta like candy corn. Keep up the good work!!

  26. Sandra Crawford
    September 15, 2017 at 7:54 am

    When I was a kid (a very long time ago), my favorite candy was the orange wax harmonicas and corn candy. Haven’t seen those in a while but I always buy a bag of corn candy for myself. I love all of your tables but always look forward to the Halloween one.

  27. Kathy Harris
    September 15, 2017 at 7:59 am

    I treat myself around Halloween and buy those sacks of mixed mini candy bars. We particularly like the Pay Day, Baby Ruth and Reese’s mixture. I saw that Brach’s has a new “football shaped” candy corn this year. How fun to use them to decorate cupcakes for a tailgate
    I love Fall. 🍂🍁❤️

  28. September 15, 2017 at 7:59 am

    Mary, I love the candy corn…the original and the chocolate varieties as well as the little pumpkins! I always have a small candy dish of them during the Fall. My daughter who has long since left home…told me the other day. “Mom, I do NOT like candy corn and all these years, I have been pretending I like them because you like them so much. :) I had to laugh…and not a cackle laugh although that most likely would have been appropriate. Your inspirations are amazing.

  29. Julie
    September 15, 2017 at 8:03 am

    Mary, these are the best Halloween decorations I have ever seen! You put things together so well and are such an inspiration. I always buy a chocolate assortment of candy for our trick or treaters with the hope that there will be some peanut butter cups left over! I love them frozen! Thank you for all you do. I so enjoy your blog!

  30. Nina
    September 15, 2017 at 8:07 am

  36. Cynthia Vellella
    September 15, 2017 at 8:25 am

    Thanks for all you do Mary. You are a true inspiration!
    I was never into Halloween that much, but it is my daughter’s favorite holiday.
    To me, it wouldn’t be fall or Halloween without the caramel apples!

  37. September 15, 2017 at 8:26 am

    How fun Mary! I love decorating for Halloween and always enjoy your Halloween creations! I love to indulge in a tootsie roll! I spotted those white plates with the cute black border on them at Home Goods just yesterday, but I refrained myself since I would have to fly back to Florida with them! I always enjoy a visit here!

  38. Sue
    September 15, 2017 at 8:30 am

    Hi Mary!! Guess I will say the Hershey mini Crackles are my fav!! My husband saves them for me and he eats the plain chocolate. Have a great weekend. xoxo

  39. Denise Paller
    September 15, 2017 at 8:32 am

    Love the Halloween ideas! My favorite candy is anything with dark chocolate and nuts – ok really anything with chocolate! I’m following on FB also :)

  40. September 15, 2017 at 8:33 am

    I knew the skies were brewing with excitement this morning and guess what flew in? Mary and her TREATS for a Halloween spooktacular. Every inch of your photos has something that is so magical. You amaze me every email.
    I think my favorite Halloween candy would be when I see the first package of Mellow Cream Pumpkins, candy corn, ears of corn, and walnuts in their shinny bag just waiting for me to grab them up at the local Fresh Market store and bring them home and put them in my leaf candy dish. Please keep on flying in with more decorating ideas.

  41. September 15, 2017 at 8:33 am

    I love everything! Especially the wreaths, signs, plates, cups…see? Everything!

  44. September 15, 2017 at 8:43 am

    How do I pick a favorite treat? I think it would have to be Snickers…I know, BORING!!! I have always wanted a set of those hand servers!!! Crossing my witchy fingers!!!!!

    I have very happily been a Black Hat member for many years! I love your blog and the gorgeous table settings you show! My favorite candy (it’s truly hard to chose!) is Halloween-color M & M’s. I put them in a display bowl early in the season and keep refilling as everyone gets to munch on them. It’s always a big hit on my kitchen island and really brings in the Halloween season! Thank you for such a generous and fun giveaway!!

    Somehow Mom managed to find five sheets she could spare. She cut out two holes for eyes in the middle and then threw them over us for our costumes. Can’t you imagine 4 little boys and their sister tripping through the neighborhood hollering, “BOO!” to everyone? Our favorite treat was getting a can of Sundrop from our neighbor who owned the Sundrop company in Concord, NC.

  58. Carolyn K.
    September 15, 2017 at 9:30 am

    Wow, I can’t believe all the wonderful Halloweenish ideas you have sent out through the years! I have used so many of them. You are THE BEST at what you do. Thank you.

Saving the whole blog to help plan the big event.

    Absolutely the best and most beautiful Halloween pictures, ideas, recipes !!!! My favorite treats are popcorn balls and caramel apples. I make them for family. Favorite store bought candy is candy corn. My favorite Halloween memory is my twin sister and I “dressed” in old coats that reached the ground with hats while our big brother was a pirate. Costumes were fairly primitive in those days and we were young! Mary you are a treasure!

  89. September 15, 2017 at 10:49 am

    Always love your posts coming in my email!!! I have to say that the best treat of all for Halloween was a grab bag that I would receive from some people full of Halloween goodies. I always loved this as a child as it added to the mystery of Halloween night wondering what was in those bags until I returned home. Now, I continue that tradition myself and give out grab bags full of treats tied with orange and black ribbon to all the little witches and goblins that grace my door each Halloween. Thank you for your wonderful blog and giveaways!

    Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins – always a favorite at my house. Can’t beat peanut butter and chocolate.

    September 15, 2017 at 11:23 am

    I will be hosting an Arsenic and Old Lace Halloween lunch this year for friends. I will be serving everyone’s favorite treat…Hot Apple Cider with Apple Brandy and Butterscotch Schnapps!! Funniest thing, I loved your blog before we bought a home on a lake and have a pontoon boat. One cat.

    Halloween is my favorite holiday, like Christmas at our house! We have a smorgasbord of Halloween “treats, ” Including a crock of cider, spooky snack mix, mummy dogs, spaghetti brains, chocolate and caramel apples (hubby’s fave), Halloween brownies (son’s fave, though I’ll be trying your Oreo Brownies this year), and a cauldron of candy for the trick or theaters. I purchase any candy wrapped for Halloween and always add wax lips and fangs because they’re fun! My personal favorite is the candy corn autumn mix with pumpkins. I pick all the pumpkins out!!

    Hi Mary! I love it when anything from you pops up on my email feed. So, I am a subscriber. I have been inspired by you from gardening and osprey views on the lake, info about monarch butterflies and recipes of course. Most inspirational of all are the tablescapes and the notes under each pic are so creative, especially the rhymes. My favorites by default because I am the dark chocolate lover in the house, are Special Dark.

  110. September 15, 2017 at 12:26 pm

    Wow, what a great post! I am excited to attend my first meeting of the Black Hat Society! My favorite treat for Halloween, and year ’round is a Hershey bar with Almonds. I buy the giant ones, and nibble on them throughout the week. I kinda’ have a reputation for it. I went back to college late in life, and always kept one on my desk in AutoCAD class to share with the other gals, my classmate referred to the time in the afternoon when they needed a bite as Choc-O-Clock.

  111. September 15, 2017 at 12:26 pm

    Just pinned several ideas from above. Fantastic!

  112. September 15, 2017 at 12:43 pm

    Mary, I’m just entranced by all of your blog posts, but your Halloween posts are definitely my faves! As soon as I see you in my email, I head right over to see what you’ve set up! As far as my favorite Halloween treat, it’s been Milky Way bars since I was a trick-or-treater.

    You always have such inspiring decorating ideas, your Halloween tables make me want to jump on my broom and fly over for a spell. A new found autumn treat is caramel coated raisins.

    I am getting itchy to feel witchy Mary! I always say, you are the Queen of Halloween, and here you have given us all of your Halloween magic in this witch round up! I was a lucky winner last year, so I won’t enter, and I can’t wait to dust off my cauldron and fill it full of spider soup! I love the “Yes I can drive a stick towel!”

  118. September 15, 2017 at 2:19 pm

    Candy Corn for me. I am the only one in my family to like it but that is who I am. I have clothes with candy corn, jewelry, kitchen items. It is all in the details right. I have followed and liked you on Facebook and follow your blog. In fact, I would follow you where ever you go. You are a great inspiration. Thank you.

    Anything chocolate is my favorite candy–Almond Joy, Mounds, Kitkat, Hershey’s miniatures, Peanut Butter Cups…bring it on! Now that my daughter’s too old to trick or treat, I have to buy the good stuff so that I can have my favorite leftovers since I can’t “steal” them from her anymore!!

    Mary, I was so happy to see your latest Halloween table. I saw those Hollow Apothecary plates at Home Goods and just had a “feeling” that you would purchase them. It is such fun to get to “know” you through your posts. I resisted purchasing the plates, perhaps lightning will strike twice and I could win them. Your table is wonderful.

    I like most chocolate, but my favorite candy bar is a Mr. Goodbar😋

    My current favorite Halloween treat is your blog. I am a subscriber and look forward to each new blog but Fall and Halloween are special. My favorite treat from years past was the special “adult punch” my neighbors offered the adults accompanying the trick or treaters. The couple put on a massive Halloween display and the husband supervised the kids while his wife, in costume, served punch to the adults on the porch. It was a nice surprise and added to the overall community spirit for the neighborhood. I especially remember the night the Texas Chain Saw Murderer came roaring out of the woods and I spilled my adult punch all over my leather jacket.

    Wicked fun and sublime creativity! I could happily get lost in these photos. When I was young, I haunted the candy section of my dad’s Ben Franklun dime store, and I ate my weight in miniature pumpkin sweets. As an adult, I’m sorry to say that if a food doesn’t bite, it’s in my belly.🍭🍬

    My favorite Halloween treat is candy corn. The way they smell when you break open the bag just smells of Halloween. I even have a candy corn candle from Yankee Candle Company. Another treat my family loves is mummy dogs. It is a family tradition to have them Halloween night. I love how you have so many details and finishing touches. Thank you for sharing your great ideas.

I try so hard not to buy them to temp me….tehe! I try healthier things for kids too. I love to tell the story , that one year I gave the trick or treaters bags of pretzels.

    This year, I am hosting my first annual “Witches, Wine and Chocolate” party for about 36 girlfriends. I am requiring my guests to decorate a witch’s hat to wear to the party. I am going to serve a chocolate cheesecake, (or chocolate mousse in ice cream cones to resemble witch’s hats.) mini chocolate cupcakes, with black glitter picks from Etsy, wonderful orange cocktail napkins from World Market that say “Drink up Witches!” and an assortment of marshmallows, pretzels and fruit to dip in chocolate fondue, as well as wine ((However MY personal favorite treat is candy corn mixed with dry roasted peanuts!))

    My favorite Halloween candy is the candy corn that I seem to buy by the pounds.

  201. September 18, 2017 at 11:53 am

    Mary, you really are amazing. Everything you do is done so well, I can’t tell what you love doing best – is is baking/cooking? gardening? or tablescaping? All so tasteful…..which reminds me, I love candy corn, but mixed with peanuts, like a payday candy bar this time of year….:)

  202. September 18, 2017 at 11:58 am

    Of course I follow your blog, but am now following on Facebook too! And, of course I pinned this post – the hardest part is deciding which board(S) to put it on – it can apply to several! Just really great stuff, Mary.

    Everything looks so good! This year I get to take my granddaughter trick or treating. I can not wait. My favorite candy is Reese’s Peanut Butter cups, but around here, fall signals the return of my favorite seasonal treat, Ivins Spiced Wafers. I

    When I was a kid I loved to get the bottle caps. My favorite is always candy corn. I find it hard to stop eating it, so I very seldom pick any up ;).

  206. September 18, 2017 at 1:45 pm

    I have a thing for tootsie rolls and tootsie roll pops. I love this post!

    For me, there are certain candies that only go with a particular holiday. For Halloween, it’s got to be candy corn! Not only is it a wonderful treat, I buy enough to put it in a glass vase and place a candle on top – then the house smells like candy corn too.

    I absolutely love your page and blog! I’ve been following you for years!! Long before you were on Facebook and Twitter!
    My favorite Halloween treats for our neighbors kiddos is to sit out on the front porch with a cauldron of hot chocolate (Witches Brew!) and Russel Stovers Candies. My favorite is the peanut butter pumpkins! They are hard to find but worth it! Walgreens usually cares some pretty cool seasonal candies! I decorate my house with the witches stripped stockings and shoes like the house fell on her with a sign that says, Watch out for falling Houses! And life size cowboy skeletons, with cowboy hats, guns and holsters, sitting on the front porch playing cards on top of a whiskey barrel. Empty cobwebbed Whiskey bottles and an owl 🦉 overlooking them. Skeleton is on top of the roof peering down at them.

    Mallow creams in the harvest shapes are my favorite, specifically the black cats and bats. I eat all those first. they are like tootsie roll flavor without the taffy-ness of tootsie rolls.

    Years ago, when trick-or-treating meant going house to house in costume and getting candy, Mom would send me out with my 2 older brothers. After a couple hours of scouring the neighborhood, we’d come home and compare our loot. Inevitably, my older brothers convinced me the candy bars and anything chocolate was meant for boys not girls. So after a few years of losing my ‘good’ candy, I learned to hide the good ‘stuff” before the ‘comparing’ began. So today, any candy bar or chocolate treat is a favorite! Now that we all have our own families, I send a Halloween gift box to my brothers and their families with treats and toys but only one piece of chocolate!

    My favorite Halloween trick or treat candy is by far Mrs. Brown’s homemade Popcorn Balls. This was in the 50’s trick or treating. We lived in a wonderful old neighborhood with sidewalks and huge trees in every yard and it was fun skipping down the sidewalks in the cool evening air with leaves crunching under our feet. I always went dressed as a Gypsy. My costume compliments of Woolworth’s.
    I have no idea how Mrs. Brown made her popcorn balls, but it was probably with the good popcorn you use to pop on the stove. It had a flavor like no other. She always wrapped them in waxed paper and tied with a ribbon. They were the best! I still have my cloth Halloween trick or treat bag (orange with goblins on it) and sometimes I think I can still smell the aroma of her long ago Halloween treats.
    Of course the old fashioned candy like MaryJanes, Tootsie Rolls, Fireballs, Wax Lips, Red Devils, Brown Cows, Neco Wafers and Sugar Babies were a close second! Wish I could turn back the clock.

    I absolutely love your blog! Especially the Halloween and Christmas ones! I must say Halloween is my favourite holiday. Sadly, I don’t get as many kids because I live on a very short street at the top of the culdesac and most of my neighbors don’t give out candy. But that doesn’t stop me from decorating! I love the Halloween shaped goodies this time of year, especially Reese.
