Halloween Is Here!
Halloween is almost upon us! I don't think I have ever done a table quite like this one...this isn't my favorite holiday so I don't have much in the way of Halloween stuff. All in all, it came out pretty cool!
The chargers are large solid black dinner plates that are almost bowl-like. The dinner plate is a creamy white with a patterned border, then the salad plate is one of my everyday black squares, topped with a white dessert plate and finally a black and orange appetizer plate with a spider and web.
I used black napkins with a pale orange gathered from the center and held with a tarnished silver napkin ring adorned with a spider. I first used a black spider, but it didn't show up very well so I grabbed the orange ones. The flatware is Oneida Afterglow.
I found the very inexpensive Tiara Diamond Point tankards at a local antique store. The little ones are vintage Hazel-Atlas black amethyst juice glasses; gift from my sister, Judy, last year.
The centerpiece started with that white stuff that is supposed to be used for webs, but I didn't read the instructions on how to use it. Unfortunately, I made a mess of it, so I just bunched it up in the middle of the table! I have added a ceramic witch with bad makeup (she also lights up), chunky black candlesticks with orange candles, a couple apothecaries with candy corn, the ever-present mini-white pumpkins, two black raven/crow candles and some plastic spider rings.
The most expensive item on the table are the candles...are they ravens or are they crows? They were about $6 each...which made me flinch when I handed the money to the cashier.
Check out the bad makeup...that is exactly what I would look like, if I were to apply it..LOL!
Thank you for your visit...hope you will return next week. If you leave a comment, I will be sure to visit you, too!
