Yes, with only 43 days to go until the most frightful day of the year.... The Queen's mailbox has been flooded with questions on the easiest decorating ideas. The most commonly asked question is what would make a good centerpiece for my buffet or dinner table? Well, here you go Halloweenies....

Check out this fun Halloween centerpiece, made with nothing but candy corn, candied pumpkins, and a some black branches. I've also done this with black jelly-beans, and lots of black licorice candies!

You can either buy black branches at your favorite craft store, or you can paint them yourself.  If you choose to paint them yourself....  spray paint the branches with black gloss, let dry. Then, take a tall, clear vase and place the branches in the center.

While holding the branches up, fill the vase with the candy until the branches stay upright.

When you get to the top, add the candy pumpkins, making sure that the branches are secure.

Now.... you've created an instant centerpiece, in less than 10 minutes. And you want to know the best part? All your dinner guests will be amazed at your spooky style and craftiness!

You're welcome.
