Fall Recipes to Try

I was watching The Today Show last week, and saw these great fall ideas! From decor ideas to cocktail recipes – yum! The recipes for the Spiced Pumpkin Seeds and Apple Rum Spritzer can be found below. The flower pumpkin centerpieces can be made as simple as hot gluing real (or fake) flowers onto any sized pumpkin. And the candy corn tree just as easily is made from hot gluing candy corn to tree branches. Put foam into a vase and stick the branches in. Cover the foam with stacked candy corn. It’s that easy!
