Happy Weekend! Are you making final preparations for all the goblins and ghouls who will soon be knocking on your door? I’ll be heading out today to buy candy. Then I’ll be trying hard to not eat it all by Monday! What’s your tactic for not digging into the candy and eating it before Halloween arrives? Some folks purposely buy stuff they don’t like, but where’s the fun in that? lol
My friend, Bonnie, has been readying her home for the big day. I love seeing how Bonnie decorates her dining room hutch for the seasons and holidays. Come a bit closer and check out her spooky table setting.
Love the orange candlesticks with skeleton candles. Even the tablecloth is covered with skeletons!
A ghoulishly fun centerpiece! Let’s name him Skelley. Hope he likes his new nickname. If he doesn’t I’m telling him it was YOUR idea!
Skelley is a little on the vain side. He placed his image on all the dinnerware for your eating enjoyment.
Here’s you place right here. Won’t you sit down, if you dare. Muwhahahaaaaa
A spider has spun a web to hold your napkin in place. You may want to use your shirt-tail or sleeve for the evening. Hahahahahah!
It’s getting dark…are you skeered, yet?
Wow, Skelley looks a lot more menacing after dark, doesn’t he? I think I’ll sit in that chair behind him. You can sit here in front. He’d like to talk with you about the name you picked out for him. 😉
After dinner, let’s move into the family room. You gotta come check out Bonnie’s mantel!
Bonnie has bats roosting in her mirror, and we’ve awakened them with our visit.
Hope they aren’t vampire bats! Yikes!
Bonnie, I’m so glad you are still a kid at heart! I absolutely loved seeing your home decorated for Halloween. Thanks for inviting us in!
