I'm Thankful for You Gift

So have you been into the stores to check out the Halloween and Fall markdowns?  I found these really neat plastic wine glasses at Michaels for 80% off.  They were originally $6.99 each.  I don't think I would pay that for a plastic glass but I would pay $1.39 each to turn them into a gift for someone I care about.  I would love to have gotten them at 90% off but I doubt any would be left.

We don't drink alcohol but the glasses were so cute with the fall leaves and the saying "I'm Thankful fo
r YOU".  I decided I could work them into a nice gift.

I used a large can of mixed nuts and some candy corn flavored M&M's to make a treat mix.  My husband thinks M&M's should not taste like candy corn.  But he agreed they were good with the nuts.  I added some to each glass and topped them with some fun pumpkin taffy and candy corn taffy from Market Fresh.  It was my first time to shop in a Market Fresh store.  It was really nice, not a lot of variety for staple basics, more of a fancy store, a bit on the expensive side.  Again I found the taffy on clearance 1/2 off because it was after Halloween so I did okay on the budget.

I put a clear treat bag over the glass and closed it around the stem to keep them fresh.

 Here is one completed.  I just need to add the name tag to each stem.

Fall Decorations around the Church

Mostly Hobby Lobby and Michael's items that are used here to give the look of fall.  The pretty pumpkin in the first picture came from Sam's Club.  I would have loved to get it on clearance but I doubted I would be there when they marked them down so I caved and bought it.  The decor tables have 70 inch round tablecloths from Walmart on them.
