Halloween Tablescape 2014



Where oh where has the time gone...decided it was time to do a Halloween table seeing it is only a week away!


I started with a black square put on the diagonal. This was topped with a purple triangular shawl that was picked up at Goodwill several years ago.


The napkins are solid black that has a skeleton "napkin ring".



The plate stack starts with a black woven charger topped with an orange BH&G dinner plate. On top of that is a black salad plate and finally the black and orange dessert plate. I used a little dollar store pumpkin bowl for the roll...it also has a cockroach crawling around it!


The flatware is bright orange Oxford Hall Fashion Wear.


I have used orange Noritake Perspective (tangerine) water stem.



The centerpiece is a white cake pedestal cover with spider webbing; a candlestick holding a gargoyle snowglobe, rats, spiders and roaches sprinkled here and there. The purple candleholders are perches for the raven candles I have had for about 4-5 years.







Thanks for visiting, hope you enjoyed it and will be back next time.

I will be joining:

Frightfully fun table, Marigene! Have you seen the Wilton spider web cake pan? It reminds me of your dessert plates. Happy Halloween!

So many, many creative touches! Those dessert plates are so fun and I love the cake platter covered with web. I am always amazed by the variety of fun Halloween dishes out there! Have a fun Halloween. I can't believe it is this week and then Thanksgiving is a blink of an eye and Christmas another blink! Puts me in a panic!

I have been browsing through several of your lovely, charming, and beautiful tablescapes. Your collection of plates, tablecloths, napkins and accessories are delightful!
Halloween is just plain fun and these orange goblets combined with creepy critters is perfect.

This is one of my favorite of your tables because I like the color combinations. The purple especially sets everything off. Very fun.

Some great ideas here for a halloween table! My daughter has a sleep over on Friday night and will be dealing with the trick or treaters so it will be great to have a themed table for the evening. Take care x

You have a beautiful Halloween table scape. I love your bright orange stemware. Your green stemware really caught my eye when I first came to your blog.
I am your newest follower, and have enjoyed looking around your blog.

I agree with everyone else, this is a GREAT table. I thought I liked the web dessert plates the best, and then I saw the orange stemware. ORANGE! Oh, my, do I love that. Beautiful! I mean SPOOKY! :-)
