Accesorizing A Tiered Serving Tray

As I've mentioned before, I am throwing a pumpkin carving party with a sophisticated vibe (no blood and guts here!). The serving plates I am using are silver-looking fancies from the Dollar Tree (Shhh, don't tell my cheap secret! =)), and my galvanized tiered serving tray doesn't quite match, so I had to gussy it up a bit.

I started with some black crepe paper ($1 for 2 rolls at the Dollar Tree), which I secured with tape.

Next, I added a fun, sophisticated ribbon in Halloween colors.

And lastly, I added my 'TRICKS' and 'TREATS' embellishments.

Hmmm, it looks like something is missing. Oh yeah, that would be the brownies and caramel apples that will be piled high on the trays =)

Fall Leaf Wreath

Man, this whole school thing is really kickin' my butt! I've worked on several projects, but don't even have the time to post them. Sigh. This ones' a quickie though =)

I was inspired by the garland that Stephanie Lynn made, using cheap leaf bunches (.97 at Walmart). I used the orange, yellow, red, and green leaves for lots of variety.

For the frame, I used a little cheapo Christmas wreath from the Dollar Tree (Yes, they already have Christmas stuff).

I took the greenery off and strung the leaves on,  then tied the two ends with fishing line. How simple is that?!
