Halloween is one of my least favorite holidays. I had about made up my mind I wouldn't do one this year, then changed it at the last minute. Unfortunately, the weather has been dark, rainy and typical of late October in my part of Kansas...just when the trees start having vibrant colors we usually get this crappy weather! I apologize for the quality of the photos this week...I had to use the light from the chandelier so there is a glare in some of the photos.
I bought an extra long white, orange and black table runner at Savers a few months ago. It was plenty long enough to cut in half to use across the table, so that is what I did. Black napkins seemed a better choice than orange for some reason. The flatware is Oneida Louisiana.
Using black woven chargers I started stacking orange and white dishes. The orange dinner plate is from Better Homes & Gardens a couple years ago at WalMart. On top of that are white salad plates I found at a local second hand store, Blackhorse Trading Co. for 50¢ for 6. The pumpkin dessert plate and soup bowl were found at either Goodwill or Savers.
The black glass stemware was also found at Savers. If held up to sunlight they are actually dark purple. I am always hoping to find black glass when out thrifting, it is hard to find.
The centerpiece consists of two tall candlesticks holding black raven candles and an almost black metal candle holder with an orange candle.
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit today. I hope you will return next time.
I will be joining Let's Dish/Cuisine Kathleen.
