The Partiologist: Fall Decor - Chocolate Squares and More!

Fall Decor - Chocolate Squares and More!

One more fall post before I move along to something I've been planning for a long long time!
But first, remember the little chocolate squares??
 
Well, you're gonna love me for these....
Here's the recipe...
Go to the store and pick up some Snickers Fun Size Peanut Butter Bars.  I really didn't plan to make these.  They were in the candy cupboard and I went to have just one, you know, just to taste. 
Well, we won't get into how many I ate, but they were cute and so I decided to dress them up just a little bit more with some fall leaves!  So I rolled out some fondant and colored it~
Just kept adding color until I liked it and then made four other colors.  Cut out some leaves and put them on a Wilton Flower Form to dry~
Then I used some chocolate frosting to stick a leaf on each piece of candy~
See how easy!!  Everyone thought I had made them, but I came forward and told the truth!  Then for some reason, the morning of the party I found this adorable banner to make - two hours before the guests were to arrive, but I knew I had to make it~
A U T U M N
I printed it and cut out some little squares, glued on some brown ribbon and that was it!  Here is the link to the wonderful site of Jesse Irene (Holiday Haven) and her free printable!
The little place cards were another easy part of the decor.  Started with some ivory business cards and felt leaves~
Used a Fall Font, printed out the names, glued on the leaves and added a little raffia ribbon~
Then I sat each one on a tiny little grapevine wreath on each leaf plate~
Well, I thought you would enjoy alot of easy peasy fall decorations after I threw those chocolate leaves at you!!
So, you like me now?
