pumpkin patch appetizers

Stormy Stewart


These little gems are wonderful on any table. Can be used as a addition to a salad, in a scary pumpkin patch setting or as is. Also nice next to my mice salad with poopy seed drressing. Or add a few fake spiders and serve by candlelight for a wickedly different snack.
