Halloween Centerpiece

Make an impressive centerpiece using a tiered tray and fill it with items such as pumpkins and candles or even Halloween candy. The best thing about tiered trays is that they can be used for all seasons by replacing the decorations to fit the occasion. For example, this could easily be turned into a Christmas tiered tray by Switching out the Spook decorations for Santas and elves.
