Fall Party Treats

Happy Halloween!  I have to be honest....Halloween is not high on my list of favorite holidays.  I have nothing against it, I just don't get into all the dressing up.  I do however love seeing what other people come up with. My friend Megan from The House of Martinez adores the holiday and always comes up with great costume ideas.  You should really sneak over to her blog and see what she came up with this year.  In addition to her and her husband's costumes, she is showcasing some other fabulous costumes that they saw over the weekend.

I got a bit off track....the purpose of my post was to show you the treats that I made for the Fall Party at Zach's school.  As I was working on them, I realized this was probably the last time that I would do this for him - and I admit, I got a little choked up.  He has been at the same little private school since he started Kindergarten.  I have done some kind of Halloween treat every year that he has been there.  But next year, things will be different - he will be in public school and JUNIOR HIGH - GULP!!!  He says that he really likes it when I do treats for the class, but I have a sneaky suspicion that come next year, what he once thought was a neat thing that his mom did, will overnight become embarassing and uncool.

Before I share the pictures, I have to give credit where credit is due.  I saw this idea over at The Johanson Journey.  Janette and I had different decorating ideas for our jars, but she was definitely my inspiration.

The little jars came from the wedding aisle at Michael's.  I was lucky enough to nab them with 40% off coupon which I think brought them down to about $12 for 20.  The stickers on the top of the jars, the Halloween paper as well as the ribbon also came from Michael's and the Martha Stewart collection.

Little sign I made for the basket
Taken from the back - jars are upside down, but wanted to show the lids
Circled the bottom of the jars with festive ribbon and filled the jars with fall colored M&Ms
There you have it....cute treat jars with minimal effort.  They can easily be changed up to celebrate any special event or holiday.  Have a great day and beware of the ghosts and goblins this evening!
