It took me a bit longer today to get this posted than I would have liked. Just as I was about to take pictures, a storm came through and I lost all of my natural light. By the time the storm was over, there was very little daylight. I pulled out an old desk lamp, to try and give my kitchen a little more light.
A super easy, but cute way to decorate for an apple party is to use paper honeycomb balls. I found this one at Meijer for only $1.50. I then added a green cardstock leaf.
I just bought this display stand on clearance at Target last week for a little over $5. (it was 70% off, score!) When I was looking for something to display all the apples we had picked, I realized that my new display stand was the perfect size.
I also bought this candlestick on clearance. When I saw that it was the perfect size to hold an apple, I gave it a try. It is definitely a more dramatic look.
Okay, you are going to notice a pattern here. I also got this mini cake stand on clearance at Target several months ago. I bought a couple different colors for only $2.98 each. They meant to hold 6" cakes. I think they also make nice display bowls.
Today I used candy melts to make three different kinds of apple treats. Can you guess what I used to make these mini apples?
Meijer has cups of Nutter Butter Bites on sale for only $1 this week. There are about 30 cookies in the cup,
and they are perfect little circles! I dipped the cookies in the melt chocolate and added chocolate sprinkle for the stem.
Oreos dipped in red candy melts also make great apple pops. I added pieces of pretzel sticks as the stem, and a little bit of green Laffy Taffy as the leaf.
The marshmallow apple pops were also fun to make. I know they are not perfectly round like an apple, but they are marshmallows coated in chocolate and sugar which totally makes up for it.
