If I eat a pastry and grapes at one sitting, do i make two brachos achronot al hamichya and an al haetz? or may I combine the words into one bracha acharona by saying "al haetz V'al hamichya" ?

In general, the correct order is:
Similarly, at the end you would substitute the for all the food-types you ate...
