Broomstick Place Cards for Your Halloween Tablescape

Welcome to the 267th Tablescape Thursday! A couple of weeks ago I shared this picture from Country Living online. I thought it would be fun to make some of these broomstick place card holders. I didn't see a tutorial for them at CL but they looked pretty easy to make, and they are!   To make broomstick place card holders, you'll need raffia, yarn or jute thread in any color you prefer, … [Read more...]

Two Whimsical Halloween Tablescapes

Welcome to the 217th Tablescape Thursday! What a night!  I had so many Trick-or-Treaters for Halloween.  Did you have many goblins and witches visiting your home last night?  Halloween is so different now than when I was a kid and out trick treating.  Back then (in the dark ages) the rule was you couldn't start until dark and we were always out really late.  Now, the kiddies start arriving early, usually … [Read more...]

Elegant & Eerie Halloween Tablescape

Welcome to the 215th Tablescape Thursday!  I'm so excited to share a fabulously spooky table from my friend, Bonnie.  I must caution though, be sure to watch where you're walking.  Bonnie seems to have a bit of a bat and crow infestation in her home at the moment.  I think I see one now above that gorgeous mirror.  Shhh, if we're really quiet, maybe we won't disturb him.   Come have a seat, your … [Read more...]

Halloween Table and Mantel…Spooky!

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, … [Read more...]
