Tempt your Halloween party guests with an array of candies masquerading as botanical or nautical artifacts. Fill large glass jars with sweets, and then mark each jar with a label that sounds convincing -- the meringues are "jellyfish skeletons" -- while being completely made up. Create your own cabinet by arranging the jars in wooden cubbies; we painted these a deep slate gray.
