The Last Halloween Table of the Season

Welcome to the 423rd Tablescape Thursday! I'm squeezing in one more Halloween table setting before Halloween is gone for another year. I thought I'd be putting this week's table inside until I realized it was going to be 78° outside today. So we're back out on the porch for this week's Tablescape Thursday.   I had a black and white table setting in mind, but somewhere along the way I … [Read more...]

Halloween in Pumpkin Hollow: Whimsical Table Setting

Welcome to the 422nd Tablescape Thursday! The leaves in my yard are changing color and both they and the acorns are falling like crazy right now. The oak tree in my front yard must have a special vendetta against my home. It's hurling acorns day and night at my bedroom windows and the metal roof of the front porch. Who knew autumn could be so violent. And noisy! lol Despite the falling leaves, the … [Read more...]

Halloween Table with MacKenzie-Childs Inspired Dishware

Welcome to the 420th Tablescape Thursday! The cooler days have me in the mood for a Halloween table this week. I have a friend visiting and she and I had fun putting this one together.   It all started with some whimsical black and white dinner plates I spotted in HomeGoods earlier in the week.   They reminded me so much of MacKenzie-Childs dishware, but the price was a lot … [Read more...]

Halloween Tablescape, Edgar Allan Poe Inspired

Welcome to the 319th Tablescape Thursday! Please do not link up more than 2 tables each week to the party. When Elena emailed and shared photos of her Halloween table and decor with me recently, she said, "My theme was Edgar Allan Poe Raven, cluttered elegant Gothic (LOL)—with your batty idea thrown in :0)"  That totally made me laugh...I love Elena's sense of humor!   Check out this … [Read more...]

Halloween Tablescape With Haunted House Centerpiece & Spiderweb Tablecloth

Welcome to the 318th Tablescape Thursday! It was a dark and stormy night....well, actually it was more like a dark and rainy day but dark and stormy night sounds a lot more fun and creepy for our Halloween table setting. It was a tad too chilly to set a table out on the porch this week so we're dining inside in the breakfast room for Tablescape Thursday.   We aren't dining alone, we have … [Read more...]

Hootin’ It Up For Halloween

Welcome to the 316th Tablescape Thursday! The owls hooting up a storm in my backyard recently must have been the inspiration behind this table setting. (Hear that recording here: Night Sounds From The Porch)   I found Mr. Owl in Wal-mart around this time last year. He's actually a cookie jar. I placed him atop two cake pedestals to give him some height in the center of the … [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...]

Halloween Tablescape with Spider Cupcakes

Welcome to the 216th Tablescape Thursday! The Witching Hour: Ever since I made knock-off Pottery Barn clock plates, I've been eager to use them in a table setting.  They are finally making their appearance in a table  I'm dubbing, The Witching Hour, a term (per Wikipedia) first used in Washington Irving's short story, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, to signify midnight. When I read that in Wikipedia, I … [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 Tablescape: Dining in the Killer Cafe

Welcome to the 112th Tablescape Thursday! We've had the most amazing weather here alllll week. Last year's Halloween tablescape was indoors, but this year I'm still playing out on the porch. With candles lit... The napkins looked way too plain so I stopped by Hancock Fabrics and purchased some black tulle. It was on sale for .99 cents a yard. I only needed a yard to create sleeves or … [Read more...]
