Halloween Carnival (the sweets and treats)

The Halloween Carnival was a success..good crowd & great weather.
I'll stick to the eats in this post
(and save some of the other goodies for another day)

Here's a shot the 'adult food' table.
My mom made all of it herself -
(now you know where I get it)

here's a good one of the spider & eye eggs :)

I decided to keep all the food (and drinks) outside.
It was a great day plus it helps keep some of the mess under control.

Here is the 'junk' table.

One of my favorite details

My version of a Pumpkin Patch
Oreo 'pumpkin' cookie pops
{displayed in wooden box (.99 at Goodwill), floral foam and moss ($1 each at Dollar Tree)}

Here are a few other faves:

 Owl cupcakes
{Sitting on a clear plate on top of a giant spider candle holder ($4.99 at Ross)}

Oreo 'cake'.  I had 2 of these on the table
 {on a cardboard cake round (6/$2 at Hobby Lobby) decorated with printables from The Celebration Shoppe...sitting on a spider votive holder (6/$3.99 at Goodwill)}

Rice Krispy treats dipped in candy melts & sprinkles...on a bed of candy corn.
Heaven on a plate, if you ask me!!

Simple chocolate and vanilla cupcakes,
made fancy with printables from The Celebration Shoppe and spider rings

witch broomsticks and extras w/ labels from Tricia-Rennea, illustrator {freebie}

 Fizzy worm juice complete with worm ice!
notice the straws :)
Just so you don't think I sent the kids home without candy..
I love a little red wagon full of toys and candy.  
Favor bags were lunch sacks with printables from The Celebration Shoppe.  
TREATS banner was a gift from Nancy at A to Zebra Celebrations.

And to make sure it wasn't a total sugar-fest...
some mini waters (w/Halloween theme bands)

Everything was super simple to make & it all turned out pretty cute.
If you'd like, I'd be happy to share the 'how-to' of pretty much all of these goodies 
(where I got the ideas and how I made them my own).  
Just let me know if you're interested & I'll get to work on it for you!!

Come back tomorrow!
I'll share some of the activities at the party/carnival -
hayride, face painting and pumpkin bowling - all on a budget!!!
