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!
