Welcome to the 58th Tablescape Thursday!
Saturday we took a field trip and toured a most amazing dish room belonging to Bonnie who shares our love for all things dishes. With all that wonderful china, I couldn’t wait to see what Bonnie might have in store for Halloween. She actually put together two tablescapes…a “fun” one and one that will rattle your bones.
Let’s start with the fun one…in Bonnie’s beautiful breakfast room. What a fun tablecloth! This would be a great tablescape for both young and old…soooo cute!
Love the cute Jack-O’lantern salad plates!
A ghostly place card…
Booooo, I believe this is your place…
Adore the napkin rings!
He doesn’t look too happy about having to hold up all those candles. Love the dragonfly chairs!
Even the chandelier gets a touch of fall…beautiful!
A final glimpse of Bonnie’s fun Halloween tablescape…before we move on to the “scary” tablescape.
Ok, RUN…RUN NOW, if you are a scaredy cat (like me.) Here, I have an idea, let’s all hold hands…we’ll feel less afraid that way. Ok, you go first…no… you! Really, I insist. You’re the guest so it’s only right that YOU should go first! I’ll just follow right behind…really, I will.
This is Farnsworth…he will be our butler for the evening. Everyone tells him he has a dazzling smile!
Love the candle holders…they make me feel like I’m entering through the gates of a very spooky cemetery….Mwaaahhhhh!
Come a little closer, dear! Ahhh, he’s talking to YOU!
My name is Skully and I’m your host for the evening. I have something I need to tell you, so lean a little closer and I’ll whisper it in your ear. GIVE ME A KISS! Ok, so I have a little over-bite…you got a problem with that?
I’ve prepared your place right here. Have a seat…NOW!
I had these plates especially made in my own image…a lovely self-portrait. Do you like them? Of course you do…I’m such a handsome devil!
You have your own candle light this evening! Notice our lovely flatware…
Here, let me serve your poison…ahhhh, I mean drink. Never mind the Black Widow…she just dropped down from the chandelier over head for a little sip.
She appears to have lots of friends…
You seem a bit slow to place your napkin in your lap…ummmm.
Pssst, over here! Let’s sneak away from the host for a moment to check out Bonnie’s hutch…it looks amazing!

Well, maybe a little spooky, although she looks more like a good witch than a bad one.
