    OH! I love Halloween! And all the fun that goes with it! My favorite treat is a mixture of salted Spanish peanuts and candy corn. I know, some people think I am crazy but I really do love the mixture!

    Candy corn is my favorite Halloween treat. I love watching my grandchildren at Halloween and fall is my favorite time of year. Oh also Halloween is my birthday!

      September 17, 2021 at 8:15 am

      Witches are my favorite – this post got me in the spirit! Reese’s Cups rule the Halloween candies. Preferably in pumpkin form!

      I love an ooey, gooey carmel apple. Delicious and a little bit healthy.

      Mary, Your Halloween finds are fabulous! The witch wine glasses, napkin rings and tablecloth are adorable! You always select the cutest Halloween kitchen towels. Your generosity in sharing with your readers is so sweet and thoughtful. You’ve helped us all enjoy Halloween more and brought the child out in many of us. I found myself buying skeleton hands and bones this week. Before reading your blog, I wouldn’t have given them a second look. Thank you for the fun inspiration! Happy Friday! Clara ❤️

    I love Halloween – a combination of make-believe and yummy treats. I used to LOVE making my kids’ costumes and then they made their way into the dress-up trunk (the costumes not the kids!!) My favorite treat is a caramel apple but I like virtually all Halloween treats!

    • Clara
      October 1, 2021 at 10:16 am

      Mary, I was reviewing this post today to get Halloween decorating inspiration. I love M&M’s. I will be using some of your cute ideas. Clara❤️

    Halloween is so much fun. I grew up when we could trick or treat with our friends all through the neighborhood without worries. I loved sorting the candy back at home and finding my favorite Bit of Honey candy. I still decorate my house and my hatchback for trunk or treat. I love to dress up in a costume to match the trunk theme.

    • Helen
      September 17, 2021 at 7:52 am

      Love the trunk treat idea!

      • Helen
        September 17, 2021 at 8:00 am

        But my favorite is the costumes…love making them fit my daughters and have continued as an adult dressing up each year. I’m lucky that one of my friends has an adult Halloween party every year with a different Halloween Theme. So one can keep it simple or go extreme with ones costume. I won one year with a ghost cape & hood I made of white tule.
        Treats: brownies decorated in the theme, often with candy corn on top – simple but fun to cut the brownies into fun shapes!

    • Mary D.
      September 18, 2021 at 5:30 pm

      My favorite Halloween treat is actually the roasted seeds from carving pumpkins. Thanks for the give away!

    I love Halloween also. As for my favorite candy, candy corn and peanut butter cups have to be in my cauldron.

  10. Robyn Smith
    September 17, 2021 at 7:16 am

    I love Reece’s peanut butter pumpkins and all the other year round shapes they’ve come up with. I made your witches cauldron cupcakes with my grandchildren last year. Although they only vaguely resembled yours they were very creative and not a little spooky!

  11. Robyn Smith
    September 17, 2021 at 7:20 am

    I pinned the spider peanut butter cookies. Maybe my little people and I will make these this year!

  12. Chris Lee
    September 17, 2021 at 7:26 am

    Love Halloween. Current favorite treat is mellocream pumpkins. Best childhood memory is going to the house where they gave away Fanny Farmer candy bars. Luxury in the 1950’s.

  13. Ann Woleben
    September 17, 2021 at 7:29 am

    My favorite Halloween candy is Heath bars – full of crunch and chocolate! I’m going to make your festive Halloween Witch’s Potion popcorn treat this year and put the treats in small bags to share.

  14. Ann Woleben

    September 17, 2021 at 7:50 am

    Mary, you are so awesome. You have converted me into loving a fun Halloween theme, and my collection has begun over the past few years (even in a downsized world, there’s always room for a few salad plates, glasses, etc). I pinned the entire collection of goodies to my seasonal inspiration board, all so fun. Reese’s peanut butter cups are my fave, and our new (old) neighborhood sees hundreds of kids in a non-Covid year. Not sure what this year will bring, but I know it’ll be exciting. Thanks for always keeping us inspired. Every emailed post is sure to be a good one from you. Have a great weekend.

      You are unquestionably the Halloween queen and have inspired my tablescapes for years! I have pinned your whole entry to my board as I always do and look forward to all of your posts; Halloween is indeed the most anticipated time of the year. I also love peanuts and candy corn and sometimes add miniature Reese cups to the mix! Thank you for always bringing the joy and fun.

    As a loyal member of the Black Hat Society, Halloween is definitely my favorite holiday. My favorite treats to eat and give out to trick or treaters are Kit Kats and Mounds Bars. Love to do a bit of decorating for our special night and will set the table with my best witchy china and glassware and place a lovely centerpiece of dead black roses and pokeberry.Always make a batch of Ghoulash for dinner with black frosted cake for dessert.
    Have a perfectly Haunting Halloween.

    I love the joy and playfulness Halloween brings to children and adults. It’s impossible not to get wrapped up in the fun of it. My favorite treat is the little box of Nerds that’s just so easy to pour in your mouth in one big bite. Happy Halloween!!!

  28. September 17, 2021 at 8:19 am

    I always love your Halloween posts because I get so many great ideas. Lola and Sophie look adorable in their Halloween attire. My favorite Halloween candy are those Reese’s peanut butter and chocolate pumpkins.

  30. September 17, 2021 at 8:22 am

    While cleaning out the garage this summer, I came across a pair of high button Victorian – style shoes that had once belonged to my mother. She didn’t wear them, she kept them in a Victorian style bedroom as a part of the decor. I almost donated them, but for some reason it didn’t. I think they are going to look perfect in a Halloween display this year. Thanks for the great idea.

    September 17, 2021 at 8:28 am

    I love Baby Ruth. It reminds me of being a kid and enjoying a simpler life. It also was my Mom’s favorite candy. I enjoy your Halloween posts. They really kick off Fall for me.

  32. September 17, 2021 at 8:29 am

    Peeps – Halloween Peeps!! Plus chocolate in any shape or form!

    September 17, 2021 at 8:31 am

    By October we are all so ready for a new decorating season, Halloween has to be my favorite. As a retired teacher of 30 years, my students loved the fall books and activities surrounding this fun event. Our favorite classroom treat was always candy corn and candied apples or caramel apples. However, with second graders someone would always loose a tooth at first bite.

  34. Lauren S
    September 17, 2021 at 8:48 am

    Mary, I always love your Halloween posts, You are SO creative!! I would love to win one of your giveaways. I am a subscriber. My favorite Halloween candy is Kit Kats, which I don’t buy at Halloween because I’d eat any that weren’t given to trick or treaters!!!

  35. September 17, 2021 at 8:48 am

    WOW!! This is the giveaway to end all giveaways!! I would be excited to win any of those prizes! More great ideas from you and your recipe box! My favorite Halloween candy, when I was a kid, are the homemade popcorn balls we use to get when we went trick r treating!! I’ve been a subscriber for like ever!!

    You make every holiday so fun and inviting. I love the fall harvest mix that has candy corn in it, so yummy. I love to eat caramel apples also. My niece and I chose a craft for Halloween to make every year. This year we are making two, candy apples decorated and pumpkins that we paint and also a couple of decopauge ones. So much fun making memories with her. You have the best Halloween ideas that I just love.🧡🧡💛💛🤎🤎 I also would love to be a part of your Black Hat society, sounds like fun idea.🧡🧡

    I made your popcorn last year for my neighbors. One bag never made it into the house. My neighbor sat in his front yard and started eating it right away. I think I will make the brownies this year and the popcorn for the neighbors. Thanks for all the inspiration. I admire your energy!

    Your posts are always chocked full of ideas and inspiration, and this one is no exception. Halloween is a fun holiday, and I’m now enjoying it through the eyes of my grandchildren.
    My favorite Halloween treat is candy corn, and it’s particularly good when mixed with dry roasted peanuts!

    I pinned the tootsie roll shoes for cupcake toppers and the cauldron cupcakes to do for my grandchildren.

    Thanks so much for continuing to provide “eye candy” for every season of the year!

Like you I really love decorating for Halloween and my grandchildren love turning on all the things that make sounds ! Drives my husband nuts!

    My favorite Halloween treat is taking a clear plastic glove & put one candy corn in each finger for the fingernail, then fill the rest of the glove with popcorn, then tie off with orange/black ribbon. Festive & fun seeing a plate of hands!!

    September 17, 2021 at 10:49 am

    I loved your table and decorations–so creative! I like the halloween orange and black M&M’s–so cute in a clear glass cannister and everybody loves them (and you can hear when the glass lid is taken off or put back (haha). I pinned your outdoor table with the candy corn–among others. I love your BEAUTIFUL posts–never miss them–thank you!

  78. September 17, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Love decorating for Halloween! Your pics always inspire me. I’ve saved 9 of them to my Pinterest Halloween Board! My favorite treat for Halloween is Nutella filled chocolate cupcakes decorated with purple and/or orange frosting and Halloween sprinkles. This year I’m going to spring the the witches boot cupcake toppers. My 8 year old Grandson will love helping me make them! And of course I’m a subscriber! Keep up the great inspirations my wife says we are kindred spirits and that I may not have as much “stuff” as you I come close with our limited NYC apartment storage space!! LOL!

    As a child I loved the taffy with peanut butter in the center, They were wrapped in orange or black wax papers. I lost several teeth inside those morsels, keeping people from winding my teeth with thread or string and yanking. Now that my tastes have “matured” fresh Butterfingers are my favorite.

  86. Elizabeth A Johnson
    September 17, 2021 at 12:51 pm

    September 17, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Oh my gosh your decorations are to die for! I wish I was half as creative as you are. My favorite treat is of course regular candy corn, its the absolute best in small amounts. (I could eat an entire bag if I am not careful). I hope I win something and thank you for having this fun giveaway!

  91. Betsy
    September 17, 2021 at 1:34 pm

    This is by far your most Spooktacular giveaway!! My favorite “treat” is decorating the house with my daughter. It’s her first year away from home and we were unable to decorate together before she left. It’s always a treat to decorate our black tree with all the glass ornaments we’ve collected throughout the years. A different type of sweet treat!! My yellow lab says “woof” for thinking of all the fur members of the Black Hat Society!!

  92. September 17, 2021 at 1:42 pm

    My most favorite holiday all year! Love black licorice

  101. September 17, 2021 at 3:45 pm

    I LOVE Halloween and am so excited to go big this year now that we can welcome back trick or treaters again. I missed the fun of Halloween night last year and will never take it for granted again. Each year I pick a theme and go for it. This year is is Hocus Pocus. Your Halloween inspirations are perfect for what ever theme I pickl. I pinned your tablecape because I love the colors and details.. You always hit the spot with your details. Thank you so much for your creativity. I look forward to your posts every day. Happy Halloween.

    I love love Reese cups but I’ve also come to love candy corn. I must be a member of the Black Hat Society because I love Halloween and I decorate for my own pleasure even though we are lucky to get half a dozen trick or treaters anymore. My posable skeleton arrived today and is relaxing on the back porch right now. I pinned the witch umbrella picture. I want to try making it. I have the legs. Now if I can get the rest of the materials and get it to come together. Thanks for all the wonderful Halloween decorating motivation!

    Mary, this is all fun and you and your witches have a plethora of goodies to give away. You know I love Halloween and a good give away, but I’m at the stage where I’m paring down my holiday things. I gave my spider web plates to a niece this summer, so I hope to see a fun party table.
    My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn. A friend dropped off a bag yesterday. I’m in trouble once I open it. 😂😂😂

    I love decorating for a fun Halloween around our house. I start early thinking about what foods to make for dinner before the little witches and goblins arrive at the door. I look forward to your Halloween post every year. I always know I will get the best ideas. My favorite candy is Almond Joy. My children would come in after trick or treating and pull all the Almond Joys out and give them to me! They were and still are wonderful children. Thank you for all your ideas. You never cease to amaze! Happy Halloween.

Of course Halloween is not complete without the adorable Lola and Sophie.
    I must say that caramels are my favorite candy for Halloween…especially wrapped around an apple! 🍎 I have loved your umbrella witch and have often toyed with the fact of making one…years later…..Thank you for all of the inspiration of ghosts and goblins, 🎃 and the most wonderful treats!

    Oh but Halloween is a wonderful time of the year. I go crazy with my decorating and my hubby asked why since the kids are grown and the grands live so many miles ( states actually) away and I always tell him it’s for me. Finally have learned it’s perfectly fine to do things for me. For the second year my book club is coming here for our October meeting ( yes we missed last year so this year is special) which means I am going to make those adorable spider cookies and would love any of your gifts. Southpaw ( my dachshund beagle rescue) says he would so Emily the doggie treats. I saved the picture on Pinterest. Well, my pretties, I am off to do some Halloween planning.

    Mary, you have no idea the ispo you’ve provided me…and all your other subscribers. I’ve been a H’ween Junkie since a little girl.
    Over the last few years I’ve made “Brella”, the umbrella witchy poo, I’ve recreated your arrangement with the ‘flame” sunflowers (so hard to find now) and also the candy DIY vase arrangement for a sweet shut-in. (Pinned) I make pans of Halloween Bark to give away each year and the popcorn mix for my hubby… And that’s just your Halloween inspiration! A sincere thank you for all of it. Look up over the lake at the Witching Hour…that’s me in my best witch hat, flying over on my broom from Asheville to say ‘Hello’, with a big bag of M&Ms and (honestly) my black cat. All the best to you. <|:)

    Candy corn is our favorite for Halloween. My husband gave me a license plate for the front of my car that says “My other ride is a broom.”

    You’ve really made Halloween happen for me ! Every pic is prize winning. My fav treat is candy corn, but it has to have something salty to go with it (peanuts or pretzels ).

    I would have to say Reese’s Peanut Butter cups. They were my favorite as a child and the smell and taste of them remind me of trick or treating in my homemade costumes lovingly created by my mom each year.

    I pinned the ‘You say Witch like it’s a bad thing’ mug. I would love to be a member of the Black Hat Society but I’m not sure how. I already subscribe so does that make me a member? Nowadays my favorite Halloween candy is the candy corn. I didn’t like it when I was young but now it’s a Halloween representative so I love it!

    For my second entry I pinned your photo of the table that has the spider web tablecloth (as a reminder that I need to replace the one I had that went missing after a Halloween party a few years back!). I’m so thrilled that you go all out for Halloween each year. Do you also decorate your home’s front door area, or only the she-shed and back yard?

    The temps have cooled off a bit here and it actually feels like fall…finally! I hope you’re enjoying a break from the humidity and that Rod and Rowena will soon drop by to visit us all. As always, thanks for the awesome inspiration!

    Mini Heath Bars! ~ Love them! Sadly they are somewhat endangered. Without them, how would we bake Maida Heatter’s “Heath Bar Cookies” if we couldn’t stock up the freezer with the little candies at Halloween? Lady Bella de la Bones and Baron Von Roachchild of Ghoulton Abbey without a glass of bat milk and a plate of Heath Bar cookies bedside? Oh the Horror! Where are my smelling salts?

    I so enjoy everything you post. You are so very talented and creative. I am a faithful follower and have been a subscriber for many years. Hard to pick an absolute favorite candy but one long time favorite has been the mini snickers. (chocolate, peanuts, caramel)
    Speaking of caramel…Caramel covered apples are indeed a favorite Fall season treat along with a cup of warm apple cider!

    It’s a little challenging to pick a favorite candy when there are just so many choices… the mini snickers (chocolate, peanuts, caramel) triple yumminess. Speaking of caramel… Caramel apples and a cup of hot cider… more favorite Fall treats!

    I love Halloween!! The candy, the decorations, trick or treat, parties, you name it! I used to take the kids out trick or treating and carving the pumpkins. Just so much fun, I really miss it, they’ve grown up. Now the greats have come along and they live too far away. I still decorate and buy candy. But I live out in the country, no trickers. I thought I could name a fav candy, but reading some of the comments, I realize I love it all! I did save a pic of the goodies you’re giving away, Thank You!! Happy Halloween to you and the pups!!

  205. October 1, 2021 at 12:53 pm

    I love Halloween as well. Dovetails nicely with my Harry Potter obsession. Caramel apples are my favorite. Going now to pin almost everything! How to “Wow” the neighborhood Halloween party!
