Frosted Petunia's Tea Under The Halloween Moon

Hello, all. It's time for tea! I've been looking forward to this party all week! Thank you to Anna from Frosted Petunias for putting this party together. To visit the rest of the participants in this tea party please visit her at the Frosted Petunias blog. Also, at the bottom of this post you'll find the rules for entering my Halloween giveaway!
I've put together a photo tea party to share with you all including some delicious sweet treats! I hope you'll enjoy the fare and the company!
First, you'll have to find my house. You'll come to this sign and turn left. Don't worry you'll stay well away from the cemetery on your way here.  
Now you'll come to a crossroads with this sign in the middle. Just take a right and you'll be there in no time!
Welcome, welcome! I'm so glad you could make it and celebrate this fine occasion with me! Would you like some tea? Cream? Sugar? One lump or two?  
Please choose a cup for your tea. Would you like the black one?
 Or would you prefer the white one with black polka dots? Whichever you choose, is just fine. I've made some deliciously decadent treats for you all. I hope you'll enjoy them.
First, we have Halloween trifle; made with layers of brownies, chocolate and vanilla puddings, whipped cream, and sliced strawberries. Delectable!

I've made both strawberry muffins and cranberry orange muffins in cute Halloween cupcake wrappers!

Here we have some yummy chocolate and chocolate orange swirl cakes! moist and chocolaty!
These are some Autumn Splendor individual pudding cups; pumpkin and vanilla.  
For those of you who like fruity desserts, here is an apple pie! Thanks goes to Jaz at October Farm for the recipe. This has become a quick favorite at our house!

I hope you've had a wonderful tea time with me here and that you keep the celebration going by visiting all the other participating blogs! You can find a list of them here (on the right hand side of the page).

Now for the giveaway rules.... I have participated in one other blog party this month, Fanciful Twist's Halloween Party and I decided to have a rather large giveaway to combine it with this one. I will have two posts where you may leave a comment and enter the giveaway; this being one of them and the other will be the post for Halloween party (second post after this one). Become a follower (or let me know if you are all ready a follower), leave a comment on either of the two posts, and you will be entered into a random drawing for the prize below! I will draw the lucky winner on October 31st and announce the winner here on my blog on November 1st! Below is a picture of what you can win. There's a little bit of everything; some handmade flowers, vintage ribbons, paper, and loads of stickers! Good luck!
