Candy for the Halloween Party

Posted by F&S

Did you see last night's Halloween special on Hallmark Channel?  I bet you thought those people did all the work, but we Frenchies helped out too!

If you missed it, don't despair - it airs again on Monday, October 31st at 10am on Hallmark Channel!

Of course, Franny.  Why, I was just adorning this beautifully carved jack-o-lantern with some Spanish moss for an extra spooky look!  Don't you just love my witch costume?

You do look great, Sharkey!  Put some of that moss around all of those candy jars, too!  We need to really dress things up for the Halloween guests who are coming to brave Martha's Haunted House.

FYI - I won't be going anywhere near that haunted house!  I hear it's really scary!  I'm filling all of these large glass jars with colorful candy so the kids can make their own trick or treat goodie bags!  The treat is the candy...

And the trick is how the jars are labeled!  Look, these gummy rats and bugs have been named 'Chewable Pets!'  Isn't that devilishly great?

Yuk!  These squiggly looking gummy worms sound especially icky because they're labeled 'Tapeworms!'  Keep me away from them!

I'll arrange these printed cellophane treat bags on this festive tray along with some ribbon for ties.  That way, everyone can go home with a goody bag!

Great idea, Franny!  We also have these gory treat bags filled with caramel corn alongside delicious cinnamon-laced mugs of hot apple cider!  This party is going to be great!  Bring on the kids!

  • Hello Ladies,
    I see G.K. is once again no where to be found when it comes to work. Maddox really needs to have a fatherly talk with the kid. Gotta love him though. All those goodies have me craving some. Tapeworms though, I agree with you--yuk and double yuk!!!! Tomorrow the snow is coming. We have 4 cords of wood stacked for the winter, and a few to come. We taped the special and hope to watch it today, but you both look mighty scarey. Maybe G.K. is going to be a lion on the special--he already has a mane. Have a great Tuesday all!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Good Morning F & S

    That candy station really looks good. I tried a gummy bear once (Nicole dropped one) and I didn't like it, stuck to my teeth and I started to gag. I'll stick with the cheese curls :)

    Basil it sounds like you are all ready for winter. Please keep it out there we want none of the white stuff. Good luck at the doctor tomorrow have your mom email my mom with the details.

    Well mom has to leave for work early I need to go eat my breakfast, no computer time for me this morning :(

  • Good morning girls,
    You sure look cute in your costumes. Once again GK left you girls do all the work. When he was just little I told him that his job was to look cute. I guess that stuck in his head cause that is about all he does on the farm, sit there and look cute. Well, I can't fault him for that. I do the same thing. I give that "look at how cute I am" expression and the people just smile and give me treats and kisses and hugs. Works like a charm. hehehehe
    Basil, how did your check up go at the vet? Kirby, you have very thoughtful parents. All that food in your house and you didn't try to get any of it? Ahhh, you knew it was going for the people that needed it so that was nice of you to leave it alone.
    As for the Halloween Special, I was disappointed. I wanted it to last for two hours instead of one. I think you girls will have to talk to the people at the tv station to get them to let Martha have longer specials. It was great, but I could have watched more of it and Ms. Martha, may I say you looked divine.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I watched parts of the show last night; too scary sometimes to watch it all. It’s not that I’m not brave, it’s just that I like my sleep without those nightmares. I think that GK was too busy with his training to be of much help. I’ll bet that’s his story and he’ll stick to it. Not much going on around here today so I think some naps are in store for me. I think I will carve a pumpkin later on today. Now that should be real fun. I have to be supervised when I use sharp instruments. You all know how that goes. Mommy and Daddy always watch out for us you know.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi everybody,
    We DVR'd the show & will watch it this afternoon. Mimi made me bat wings for halloween. I tried them on this morning and I think I looked swell, at least that what I've been told.
    Mimi is off on her Arizona/California trip early tomorrow AM. I get the computer all to myself!
    Basil, let us know how things go today.
    til tomorrow,
    Rebel

  • I have to say you Frenchie pups make adorable Halloween participants, each costume you wear always brings a smile to my face.
    I'll be gone for a couple of days, but I will come back to the posts that I missed and will comment ;)

    XOXO from delia & Kitty =^u^=

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., You girls look so cute in your costumes and you sure did a fine job fixing all of those treats for the kids to enjoy at Martha's Haunted House!! Yes, I dld see that scary TV Show Halloween Special last night and I enjoyed most of it and was scared by some of it, also! Sure wish GK had been on the show, but I'll bet he is busy getting ready for the Dog Show coming up real soon! Sure hope everyone has another great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO

  • I missed your show, Raven dear, but hope we can catch it at a later date. I'm sure you did a great job.
    Our Auntie Ellen won't be making Halloween costumes for us this year-- she is too busy making AWESOME cool coats that are so blingy and beautiful that they could be costumes too. She is going to sell them and become famous, although probably not as famous as your NowMom. A lot of the Frenchies that went to the French Bulldog National Specialty have them now and really like them. If you are ever too warm and want to look fabulous at the same time, you let me know and I'll see she makes you a really pretty one. Sharkey too, of course!

  • I love your Halloween costumes ladies. Sharkey you and the witch's costume especially with your hat cocked to one side is way too cute. Francesca, something about you in that skeleton costume is just too perfect. :smile:

    I guess GK is training very hard to assist with the preparations. That's his story right? :wink: Nobody but your Mom does up tastefully creepy Halloween like she does!
