Enchanted Forrest Party

It's been a long time coming but I finally hosted the Enchanted Forrest Party that was originally planned for the Monday before Halloween. Then we, Sandy rained it out. So, I held it last Friday, and though the rescheduling forced some people to cancel, it was an extremely fun time. I'd been gathering decorations in my backyard for a while,I didn't see the sense in buying branches when I could collect them for free .The rest came from Wal-Mart and Target or I already owned.  I made apple cupcakes with caramel icing. Next time, I think I'm going to use apple juice or cider rather than dried apples though, The apples were a bit chewy and had an odd texture. I think I'd like to use the forest theme again for different holidays and events, Christmas, Chronicles of Narnia, really the possibilities are endless!
My aunt did this when she was a kid. Been in the family for years.
About $9.00 on clearance at Wal-Mart
