We all could use a little escape these days wherever we can find it in

    Hi Mary! I absolutely love your blog. I look forward to every email. We love Halloween in my house and my favorite treat would have to be Reese’s Peanut Butter cups : )

      Oh Mary,
      Halloween is by far my favorite day of the year, and I love your spooktacular table settings, and decorations. You give us all so many wonderful ideas and share such fun ways for us all to enjoy this fall time of the year. I LOVE the potting shed and the ways that you change it for the seasons and holidays.
      My absolute favorite treat is the candy apple. I’ve loved them since my first bite as a child and it still remains my favorite fall treat. The smell and taste of cinnamon brings fall to the front of the line.

      Halloween is our fave holiday! I love Reese’s peanut butter cups, they are available all year, though. Candied or caramel apples are my most looked forward to Halloween treat! Thanks for all the Halloweenspiration!!!

    We love Halloween! Our favorite treat is a witch head cake we have been making with our family for over 40 years now! We Started making it when my children were young and now I love making it with our grand girls. You bake one 9” square cake, then cut in triangles- The largest wedge becomes witches face, other her hat and small corner piece is nose. Tint part of white icing for face and part for hat, leaving the rest white for her hair. Sprinkle white icing with coconut for hair, and add candies for her eyes and mouth. I love all your fun Halloween decor! It’s the best! Xo

    My favorite Halloween treat is the Witch’s Potion Popcorn. I replace the candy corn with orange M&Ms. This is such a versatile recipe because you can change the ingredients to match the holiday or event – Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, or tailgate (no tailgate this year). You are very generous with the giveaways!

    I would love to win the Sweet potato dog treats, for my Granddogs, I do not have any grandchildren, so call my daughters 2 dogs -my Granddogs, I know they would love the treats. A great Halloween blog.

  18. September 18, 2020 at 8:25 am

    You have really outdone yourself on this one! Fabulous! Thanks for posting. I know that it took a lot of time to put that all together. For some reason, when I think Halloween, I think candy corn. I can’t eat but a couple of pieces because it is so sweet but that is my first thought.

  19. September 18, 2020 at 8:29 am

    Hi Mary! You are so generous in your giveaways! I love your witch’s potion popcorn that I giveaway to neighbors and family. I love it myself!!

  21. Brenda McCrary
    September 18, 2020 at 8:32 am

    Halloween is my favorite ‘holiday’. Girly-squeeee! My favorite Halloween treat has to be the Reese’s pumpkins. Also the orange Oreo’s. Not considered a treat but delicious is the Spooky Lasagna Soup recipe you posted and I have made it several times. Even hubby loves the floating eyeballs.

  22. Brenda McCrary
    September 18, 2020 at 8:34 am

    I pinned the picture of the Hawthorne Gardens pillow cover and a picture of the table setting with the potion plate and witch hand towel.

  23. September 18, 2020 at 8:34 am

    Wow, Mary! What a way to lift spirits (no pun intended!) One thing i miss with clicklist shopping is seeing the seasonal treats, but I recently saw one my favorites elsewhere and added it to my own list – candy corn (I mix it with peanuts). Mr. P, and I both love that this time of year. I pinned that potting shed tablescape, it’s so perfect, and will bring me back to ALL of these seasonally inspired links. No fur babies in my immediate household but I have granddogs, and I’m all in on your giveaway. Your love of this holiday has definitely rubbed off – I’m even into making Halloween tablescapes now! Seven years – wow, no bad luck for us subscribed readers, it’s all good!

  27. Sue

    Wow! Lots of Society members get treats this time!
    I like candy corn with peanuts. It’s the only way I can eat candy corn and I only partake at Halloween.
    My puppy, grandchildren and I would love to win any of these wonderful treats!

    Mary, you always inspire me with your posts! My Halloween collection has definitely grown over the years after seeing your ideas. I pinned several pics, your Skeleton crew has always amused me, the cheese tray with the rats and of course the spider cookies for my grands! Thanks for always being generous with your giveaways! Stay safe and Happy Halloween!

  30. September 18, 2020 at 8:46 am

    I also love the autumn mix candy corn-probably because my Mom also liked it! I pinned your skeleton crew to make with my grandsons. They’ll love it. I made your witch wreath a few years back and it is still one of my faves. Thanks for all your creative ideas!!

    My black female Pug Sadie is dressing as a bumble bee for Halloween this year. I can’t wait for Halloween.!

    Proud card carrying member here of The Society. I love Halloween so much I chose it as my wedding day 39 years ago! Yep, Hubby and I have been scary together since !981! Frightening, huh? Ha! Haven’t been treat shopping yet, but as I was trying to rearrange and organize my jillions of dollars worth of decorations, I came upon some Reese’s peanut butter pumpkins from last year. I know…leftovers that nobody ate? Horrors! How the heck did that happen? Anyway, in the times we find ourselves in now I don’t waste one speck of food so I’ve been gobbling those things down right and left. They’re scary good!

    Happy Halloween!!!

    I pinned the witches shoe and the caldron cupcakes. Since Halloween will be altered like everything else I want to do something special for my grandkids!
    Thanks for the inspirations

    September 18, 2020 at 8:51 am

    What a generous give away! I love trying your recipes. I pinned the Witches Potion Popcorn, and hope to make it this weekend when we watch Mulan on Disney Plus with our grandchildren. As for candy, I always try to hold back a few Mounds bars from the bowl for the trick-or-treaters. I wonder what trick-or-treat will look like this year.

  37. September 18, 2020 at 8:51 am

    You have so many beautiful things, you must have lots of closets. Wishing you a spooky Halloween

      Oh Mary what a great Halloween selection and generous giveaway! The past posts bring back some great memories of making some of the recipes, searching Goodwill for some black witchy garden boots but the ones I finally found were not as cute as yours and sharing Rod and Rowena with my husband-the one where they are on the boat dock! I like mixing candy corn with peanuts and seasonal M&Ms. I am a member of the society. Thank you so much for taking me down memory lane this am!

  44. September 18, 2020 at 9:01 am

    Ah how fabulous everything looks! I absolutely love all that you have done. My favorite candy for Halloween is of course candy corn and it is addictive I think. I would love to be a member of the Good Witch Society, black hats are my favorite. From one of your posts years ago I went and bought a skeleton from Grandin Road and other things and you were so right, they are all awesome. I am so sad tho because this year we were supposed to host the Halloween Neighborhood Bash Costume Party and with covid, everything in our group has been cancelled. BUT I am still saving ideas for next year. I was planning on making some of your goodies, ah well. To everything here is a season right? Hope I am a lucky winner! Thank you for all of your wonderful and fun inspiration!

    This is the cutest Halloween gathering of goodies! I was going to skip Halloween decorating this year, but I think you just reminded me how much fun it is, even though we won’t have those little ones knocking on our doors. So many favorites here, especially the witches legs and vase arrangement with candy corn in it. I live very close to Salem (OR) and my favorite Halloween sign says “Not All Witches Live in Salem!”.

    You have the best dogs. Most i know would be barking at the skeletons, not sitting on the bench with them. I would love the “doggie bag” for my grandogs. My favorite treat is plain kraft caramels. I only allow myself to buy them once a year at halloween and it does not take me long to consume the bag. I loved when i got them in my sack at trick or treat time.

  51. September 18, 2020 at 9:51 am

    My favorite treat is Reese’s peanut butter cups. This post is amazing. I pinned several of the recipes and am anxious to try them.

I do love Halloween, but I must admit I’m not ready for the calendar pages to flip that fast…I do hope this year the kids will be able to have some Halloween fun, and enjoy lots of spooky treats!

  54. September 18, 2020 at 10:05 am

    My favorite has always been plain old candy corn eating each morsel one color at a time! White, then orange and then yellow! Yum!

    September 18, 2020 at 10:12 am

    Mary, love all your genius. I’m excited for Halloween this year, as my 36yo son will come to Colorado from Austin to celebrate. It was a special request from his 4yo niece, to come and dress up for the occasion. As a Death Metal drummer, he would love any of the skeleton gifts. I will be making him a skeleton wall hanging, which I have had for a while. Retirement gives me time for such endeavors.
    I’m a corn candy girl all the way. I pinned your garden witch’s shoes. So unique! Also, loving being a subscription member. Thank you for making my day a little brighter.

  56. September 18, 2020 at 10:13 am

    My favorite fall/Halloween candy/treat is candy corn. I also love a good candied apple!
    I look forward to your posts and have pinned several of your Halloween ideas (along with others!)

  59. September 18, 2020 at 10:24 am

    Great giveaways. My favorite treat of Halloween is my annual Halloween party for my grandchildren. Been doing this about 10 years. Some years are amazing, some are tough. All are blessed though as I’ve been doing despite having cancer. This may be my final party so I’m going out with a bang!

  60. September 18, 2020 at 10:28 am

    My favorite Halloween candy is Candy Corn, not to eat but to use for decorating. I’ve made melted candy platters & small bowls. I have used as filler in double flower vase with yellow spider mums.

    September 18, 2020 at 10:29 am

    I too love Halloween! I decorate every year, even though I’m 73 and live alone. My neighborhood is being replaced with young families.

    Brach’s pumpkins. I love them – have already had my bag for the year :) We live on a lake too and don’t have any TOTers. I go to my Mother’s to hand out candy. Love seeing all the costumes and the toddlers who just walk right in when you open the door!

    I’m an October baby and love fall and Halloween! My favorite treat is Reese’s peanut butter cups. Imagine seven kids running around with pillow cases full of candy coming home and dumping the candy out. A mountain of candy that our mom went through first to get her favorites! We had candy through spring! Love your posts!

    I’ve never been a fan of “gory” Halloween- I love the cute things you’ve put together here, especially the second set! I enjoy anything I can make with my nieces. Last year we made your method of bark candy with graham crackers, white chocolate, and decorative toppings. Easy for little people to do, and fun for all! I’m a subscriber and always love your creative ideas. Happy Fall!

    This is a Bewitching post! Halloween is my favorite holiday and you never fail to provide inspiration for new ways to celebrate! I cannot even list how many of your creations have been replicated and added to my annual Halloween decor and treats for the table. I have searched in vain for those gorgeous black leather boots! My favorite candy is the Halloween PEEPS by Just Born Quality Confections which is headquartered in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Sadly, Just Born has recently announced that due to the effects of Covid-19 the Halloween shapes and flavors will not be available this year…nor will the Christmas editions. Good Luck to all in winning one of these marvelous prizes! Thank-YOU!

    Isn’t this the BEST time of the year?? I love your blog all year round, but especially in the fall and during the witching season! I’m swooning at the window box, and have it pinned for some inspiration when I do my window boxes next month. And, that tea party? I’ve pinned that as well, it’s divine. You’ve put me in the mood to bake my favorite fall treat, pumpkin roll….all of that cakey, cream cheese frosting deliciousness…so yummy! Thanks for the wonderful ideas and inspiration, your blog is my favorite.

    Boo is the word of the day! What a great blog post today. You are the Queen of the Witches and the puppies are just the cutest things ever. I just love every table setting and I go over them two and three times because I always see something that I missed the first time.
    I keep a journal of tablescapes and I write down ideas so I don’t miss anything. The rock candy laying across the teacup looks just like a broom. I love they little touches. Please keep up the hauntingly great tables.

Very sad for the kids all the things they are missing. The little ones don’t understand why they can’t go here or there. My favorite candy would have to be candy corn with the chocolate since this is the only time of year we can get it. Thanks for all you do!

    With so many fall festivals and Halloween event cancelations your blog posts make me so happy seeing all the decorations and tablescapes. I posted a couple photos on Pinterest. Love the floral arrangement! I love your potting shed too. I live in a red tiny house (a little over 500 sq ft) and I love the green trim, and I’ve been wanting shutters on our little place. You inspire me!

    September 19, 2020 at 12:17 am

    Oh Mary! You are so incredibly generous! You even beat-out the good witch Glenda! Hehe. All of your special vignettes, the witches shoes the tablescapes, the very fashionable skeletons, remind me of my childhood when Halloween was fun. I especially like the sweet vintage postcards, takes me back to easier, kinder times. 🍊🍂 The sweet pictures of Lola and Sophie cracked me up, I really laughed out loud. I’ll pass on the entry and leave it to all the other “trick or treaters”, but you did a super great post. Also, want you to know the apple-pecan-carmel cake mentioned in the last post is yummy good. My 3 sisters and hubbies enjoyed their pieces and we did too. What a great fall treat! I did notice though that the vanilla needs to be added to number 2 under the cake instructions and yes you were so right, that was one thick batter, but oh, so good! Thank you for another “keeper” which goes in my “Mary’s – Home Is Where the Boat Is” 3 ring binder cook book! Love ya girl! ♥️ Happy Fall! 🍊🍂🍊🍂🍊🍂

  142. September 19, 2020 at 12:22 am

    Each year you outdo the year before. Nobody decorates like you ! I pinned a lot of the photos but the floral arrangement is beautiful.
    My favorite candy is frozen Baby Ruths. I love the tea cups and towels.

    Halloween is my favorite holiday also! I decorate inside & out! I have my fingers crossed that we can have trick or treater’s this year! Your pups are adorable, my pup’s name is Shilo she’s a goldendoodle I wish she would wear a lil costume even for a pic or two. Who knows maybe this year (while she’s sleeping..tee hee). My favorite treat are Reese’s peanut putter cups. Have a Great Halloween & LOVE, LOVE your she shed! Our backyard is too small next house for sure!

    My favorite Halloween treat is still candy corn. It’s pure sugar and also fun to use to decorate.

    I look forward to your POSTs all the time. You are very creative, I like your style. I work doing a left brain job and reading your POST helps me get inspired to decorate and enjoy my home. Love the pictures of your dogs!!! Love everything about your POST, not to scary, but fun spirited. I like what you did with the oreo cookies as witch legs/socks. My favorite Halloween treats: Halloween themed M&M’s, Oreo cookies, and Mr. Goodbars. I don’t know how to Pin, but will find out how and Pin. Also, I live in Southern California, border of LA & Orange Counties. The LA Major has banned “Trick or Treating” Halloween Carnivals and gatherings this year because of COVID-19. I will miss the young creative costume creatures knocking for treats this year. But, I am still decorating!!!

    Every year since my sister’s children were very small, we have an annual family “Fright Night”. . . .they always look forward to their Aunt Kelly’s special Halloween treat—hot buttered popcorn with peanut M&Ms mixed in! Frightfully delicious and perfect for scary movie night double features! PS. The “kids” are all grown now, yet we all still gather for this tradition, snuggled under neath autumn patterned throws while wearing our Halloween socks!

    Grand Witch Mary… as a lowly untalented member of the society I must protest that you are requesting that we limit our selection to only one favorite treat… I mean, eye of newt and tongue of spider are obviously at the top of every good witches list but I believe we should lure in the mere mortals by pretending we like their “goodies” so I will throw out my suggestion… popcorn ball.. witch jamie….

  206. September 25, 2020 at 8:31 pm

    Mary, I think you know each and every one of these ideas thrill this Halloween enthusiast. I say this frequently, but honestly this post alone could be a complete book. Your ideas and photo presentation is stellar. Makes me want to fly right into these charming tableaus. As much as I adore each and every one of these generous gifts, I’ll leave my name out of the hat. Remodel still in process here, and honestly I’m not sure any of the Halloween totes will make it down from the attic this fall. Between COVID isolation and three rooms packed away, I’m reluctant to bring much out.
    I’m in awe of your talent. I’m going to start a Pinterest Board of just Mary holidays! I want a quick reference to these creative ideas. Happy Days ahead, dear friend!

    • September 26, 2020 at 6:32 am

      Thank you for your kind and generous comment Sarah! {blush} I know you must be weary of your renovation and beyond ready to have your house and garden back when you can’t escape and travel some while that is going on. I hope it wraps up sooner rather than later and COVID will in the rear view mirror for all of us in a few months. Happy Weekend to you, Sadie and the Chef. ♥

    I love Halloween! This holiday is a special reminder of my childhood. We always created homemade costumes with the help of my mom. She made every holiday come to life! Some of the costumes I remember we created were the Quaker Oats round box to wear, A movie theater cup of coke Including the logo and a box of popcorn. We had so much fun making these and more. This tradition carried into my adult years for Halloween party’s. Creating wearable Halloween party table costumes. All of your table settings have given me some great ideas for more party table costumes. Your witchy dishes are the cutest ever!! My all time favorite candy is Reese peanut butter cups, but I will take anything chocolate!

  213. September 28, 2020 at 10:26 am

    I posted the table scape with the poison plates and two others long wiith the bone and Skelton spreaders which is my favorite since I collect spreaders

    Mary, I think this Halloween is the best ever! I’ve saved to Pinerest your terrific ideas so I won’t forget how to make them, they are all over the top wonderful! This year Dollar Store had plastic wine goblets with skeleton hands, closest to the ones you have used in the past, I bought 12! I needed to make a broom to go with the child’s witch dress I hung on the window under the hanging twinkle lights, timely directions…thank you! I love chocolate, so Halloween is my favorite with so many choices, but to decide on one, it will have to be Reeses Peanutbutter cups, yum! Thank you each season’s decorating and baking idea’s, I love them all, never too old to decorate and have fun!!! Debbie
