Welcome to the 60th Tablescape Thursday! Monday I shared a Halloween tale along with some Fall/Halloween porch decor. Wednesday was a day of Monster Mashing. And tonight…
Won’t you join me…said the spider to the fly?.
Welcome to the Killer Cafe…hope the menu (click for a better view) meets with your approval. (Insert evil laugh)
No tablecloth is needed…the spiders have been busy covering the surface of our table.
You don’t mind spiders…dooooo you?
Dinner plates and bowls are from A Classy Flea…$12 for all of them…love the Flea! Pumpkin salads were $2 each from Wal-mart…
I promised you food for our ghoulish feast, that is if you dare to eat!
Wilton Food Coloring Gels…have you ever used these things? They are souper dooper concentrated, and just the smallest amount will color your icing…and your fingers…and your clothes…and your cat. Ok, just kidding about the cat…but these things are STRONG!
I whipped up the cream cheese frosting from Paula Deen’s, The Lady & Sons, Just Desserts…
Recipe for Cream Cheese Frosting from The Lady & Sons, Just Desserts:
1 8-ounce pkg cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
1 16-ounce box confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
Cream together cream cheese and butter. Add confectioners’ sugar and almond extract. Beat until smooth. Add the food coloring in before beating the icing too much, so you won’t over-whip the frosting trying to add it in later. I’m speaking from experience. :-}
Oh, I see your glass is empty…let me fill it for you. The menu states we’ll be drinking Molten Lava, Swamp Juice and Putrid Punch…which would you prefer? Perhaps a little of all three?
Let’s start with the Swamp Juice. Don’t worry…he won’t drink much.
It’s just getting dark out now. Oooooh, are you scared, yet? The floral arrangement in the background normally lives on a chest in my upstairs family room…found it many, many years ago at Old Time Pottery.
I placed a string of white lights underneath the table. It gave our tablescape a nice glow up through our spider web tablecloth. Tureen is Red Cliff Ironstone. Killer Cafe menu is from Dollar Tree.
Thanks so much for stopping by for our spidery, cobweb feast…
