As promised butterflies, it's an 'All Treats and No Tricks' Halloween Weekend at Ascending Butterfly! Our friends at are back with a very special and super fun giveaway! Join me in the pumpkin patch while I wait for the great pumpkin! Casa de Butterfly has been having tons of fun road testing great treats and here's our report:

12 ct of the Fall Leaves Chocolate Dipped Strawberries - These were super yummy! The strawberries were HUGE and bursting with fresh strawberry goodness! My fave in the variety are the dark chocolate dipped. And these go really well with champagne, just saying! It's starting to get chilly here in the Northeast, which means more time spent indoors, this is a perfect indoor treat for you and that special someone! Because this is a fresh fruit delivery it requires overnight shipping, so keep that in mind when you order it.

Now when you think of fruit you think of two other things, cheese and nuts! What is your favorite? My favorite is definitely Cashews! If anyone figures out why you can't stop at a few of them, please let me know! Are you attending any Fall parties and want a thoughtful hostess gift? If you were coming over to my house, I'd love this:

Vintage Pressed Glass Jar with Jumbo Cashews - These were great. They were just the right amount of salty, they were whole not halves, and when they say JUMBO they mean jumbo, most important, they were soft, don't you hate when you bite into a cashew and it's so hard that you are afraid you might crack a tooth? I love the jar and will definitely be re-purposing it once I run out of the cashews! So it's really a two for the price of one kind of gift! And the chocolate plaid bow adornment would make it a very guy friendly gift also, send them straight to his office as a fall surprise! (Just don't send 'manflowers' to go with it, save those for when he gets home!)

While I always love working with 1800Baskets and try my best not to pick favorites, I did decide to save the best for last this time. This basket is by far the perfect centerpiece for a Fall Table. It's perfect for Thanksgiving and for the Holidays. And would totally make an excellent Hostess gift as well if you are a guest at a Fall gathering. There is something about the Corncupia shape that just speaks 'bounty' and reminds me immediately of a big Thanksgiving meal shared with Family and Friends!

Cornucopia of Fruit Gift Basket - The selection in this basket includes:

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Cornucopia Basket
Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - 2 Comice Pears

I absolutely loved this basket, and will be ordering a few as gifts for sure! It is filled completely no empty spots, you won't feel cheated or that it had more filler than content. It's chock full of delicious fruit, nuts, and cheese! I also hate when I get a basket that includes very few things I actually consume, this basket is a 100% winner!
