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 around 5:30 and it’s always pretty much all over by 8 or 8:30. That’s probably best, especially on a school night. There will be some wound up little ones in school tomorrow after a fun night of chocolate and candy! That’s okay though…it’s just once a year and they are little for such a short time. (sniff)
For this week’s Tablescape Thursday, I’m sharing two last Halloween Table Settings from my friends, Liz and Bonnie.
Liz blogs at Infuse with Liz and recently she created a wonderful tablescape in vibrant colors for Halloween.
Winnie Green kept watch from overhead.
Love the mix of purple, green and orange and the spider web tablescloth overlay!
Of course, I’m crazy about the cat masks! Love those! Ummm, those would even work for a Mardi Gras table setting/celebration, wouldn’t they?
Be sure to stop by Liz’s wonderful blog, Infuse with Liz for more detailed pictures and information about where she found all the goodies she used to create this fun Halloween tablescape.
Bonnie’s Halloween Tablescape:
Bonnie doesn’t blog but fortunately for us she shares her wonderful tablescaping talents! She recently created a wonderful tablescape in her breakfast room. I love the black and white checkered tablecloth. Don’t miss the shelf on the wall behind the table. Love the mix of creamware with the white pumpkins. The two together make such an impact in front of that gorgeous mirror.
Bonnie mixed checks with polka-dots and look how great it turned out!
Even the flatware has both checks and polka-dots.
Love the ghostly centerpiece!
