This is a centerpiece that I did last fall. I had 3 containers of various sizes. You can use anything that you have or pick something up at Goodwill or a yard sale. Fill about half way with candy corn and nestle in a real or as I did a battery operated candle. I bought a roll of rusty orange colored tulle at a yard sale and made bows for all 3 holders.
TIP: Candy corn can be frozen in freezer bags and used for decorating the next year to keep costs down.
So~even though it's too hot to venture outside~grad those decorating magazines and look through all those great blogs out there for Fall decorating ideas. October will be here in 8 weeks!!

I have been wanting to make them for awhile now. Boy was it more work then I had planned on! I made Shrimp,Chicken and Vegetable kabobs and Fruit ones as well! The presentation turned out beautifully along with some Red Sangria in my beautiful Beverage Server. I will definitely do this again but I'm going to enlist some help from my husband and daughter next time so I'll have time to freshen up before the guests arrive. I used a garlic and herb marinade for the shrimp and a teryaki marinade for the chicken. I used olive oil and salt and pepper for the vegetable kabobs. We had a Caramel cake from the Sweet Stuff Bakery for dessert! YUM!!
Here is a pic of our finished walkway! We began the project a couple of weeks ago. I love it! An inexpensive do it yourself project! We are finishing the landscaping today and some much needed painting. This weekend we are putting pea gravel down around our fire pit area. I can't wait until Fall weather comes and we can enjoy a glass of wine with a roaring fire. My daughter's Sweet 16 party will be in November and she wants to have a bonfire. I am already planning the menu and decorations!! More on that later...
Have a wonderful week...
