A Booo-ti-ful Setting for Tablescape Thursday

Welcome to the 262nd Tablescape Thursday!

My friend, Marie, has six adorable, much loved grandchildren. When they visit her home, they eat at the same table their parents ate at while growing up. Love that!

Marie creates the most whimsical, fun table settings for her grandchildren for all the holidays throughout the year.

Can you guess which holiday the table is dressed for now?

Yep, it’s all about Halloween this time of year.

I really like how Marie tied the napkins for each place setting…really shows off the cute embroidered design.

Bats and ghosts decorate each setting.

Remember the striped table-leg stockings last Christmas?

They’re back in Halloween style! So fun!

I have lots of pics to share of how Marie has decorated for Halloween.

  1. Susan, thanks for having the link up so early, I do a lot of my blog work at 5:30 am before I go to my “real” job. Love the table, love the house! Have a great day – Dawn @ We Call It Junkin

  2. How fun! What a fun table for the grandkids! I like those napkins- they remind me of a mans necktie with the way they are folded. Those table leg covers are too cute 🙂

  3. Very cute and such fun! I bet the children love coming to grandma’s house. Memories are being made.

  4. Marie always does such fun children’s tables, and this one is no exception. I love the witch leg on the table leg! Thank you for sharing all of the fun at Marie’s and thank you for hosting TT. laurie

    Marie has done it again! Such cute ideas. I bet her grandchildren think she is the coolest grandmother. Her brain must go 24/7 with fun ideas following!

    I am looking forward to seeing the porch!

  6. Great fun at the childrens’ table! Was just thinking yesterday that I hoped we’d be seeing Marie’s home dressed for Fall – both inside and out. Can’t wait for more!

  7. I always love seeing Marie’s decorations, and she always goes the extra mile to make things over the top cute! Thanks for the Halloween inspirations, it won’t be long now!

  8. As fast as time is flying, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised to see a Halloween table, but I haven’t even transitioned into fall yet!

  9. Truly a bootiful setting. I want to be Marie’s granddaughter in my next life!…Christine

  10. Those witch table legs are to-die-for CUTE! Love it!

  11. Oh my.. I would have too sit at the children’s table! What fun.. Both decorations and Nana! This year I have decided to pass our Halloween decorations on to son and wife. They are such Halloween fanatics… I want to see them enjoy the treasures from his childhood! Thanks Marie and Susan….Can’t wait to see more!

  12. Adorable table! Marie’s kids are so lucky!

  13. Susan,
    Thanks once again fro sharing Mari’s home with us!! I do so love seeing her decorations!! Thanks for hosting!!


  14. Susan, it always a treat to see how Marie has decorated for the season. Cute table! I think her table leg stocking idea is very clever. Need to pass that along to my friends with small grands who come to visit. ‘-)
    My post is on the shy side of a tablescape, so hope it’s OK to link this week………Sarah

  15. Hi, Susan,
    It’s hard to believe it’s time for Halloween decorations already! Love Marie’s table. The kids must love all the colors and characters! Any idea where she found the table leg covers? Thank you for hosting each week, Susan. Your efforts are appreciated!

  16. How wonderful that you have such a fantastic friend! Takes some love to allow you to share her home with us. Give her a big ol’ hug and say thank you from me!

  17. Susan – how much fun is this table? I love to see how Marie sets here tables for each holiday. Can you imagine being one of her grandchildren – life for them must be a constant fantasy! Thank you for sharing this and for hosting!

    Thanks Susan, and thanks to Marie for sharing.

  19. SharonFromMichigan says

    That has got to be one of the most adorable kid friendly table settings that I have ever seen. Thank you so much for sharing it. Those table legs are truly unique – did Marie make those herself? Please thank her for sharing with us. Have a great day!

  20. The tabble setting is gourgeus and the “boot-table” idea is GREAT!
    Thakns for sharing ( and inspiring) with us !!!

  21. She does such a nice job with every detail of decor! I especially like the at the kids table all the items seem to be “kid friendly” Looking forward to Monday! Jennifer

  22. What a fun lady – I can not imagine being her grandchild! My grandmothers were gone before I was born so the whole “Gma” thing is just amazing to me. One day I hope to be one myself – Marie has certainly inspired!

    Thanks for sharing, and a big thanks for hosting. Hugs.

  23. I love to see Marie’s decorations. I get so inspired. I want to come back as one of her grandchildren and sit at the holiday tables. Thank you for sharing

  24. Oh Susan, that Marie has so many wonderful tablescapes. I bet her grandchildren love to go over there.
    Can hardly wait to see the outside decorations.
    Have a great weekend.

  25. Oh how darling! I can’t wait to see more. Reckon you could persuade Marie to share her ounces for the napkins, table runner and the oh so cute table legs. Thanks again!

  26. This is one of my favorite parties….I just love seeing so many wonderful tablescapes! Thank you for hosting!

  27. Susan,
    I love here house. Have you ever given us a tour of the inside? It’s so big, and her porch decorating is the best.

  28. Susan that is an adorable Halloween table. Those kids are lucky to have such a sweet grandma. I look forward to sharing a tablescape someday soon on tablescape Thursday. My BFF who passed away two years ago and I used to drool over your site together over the phone. Looking forward to joining in on met Monday.

    Susan, I would love to get some of those little witches. They are so comical looking, sitting in the bowls as she’s placed them. I love their big feet and that they all are dressed so differently. Won’t you please find out where she got them? Or maybe she made them.

    Btw, I found some of the cute table socks at Plow and Hearth. 2 for $14,95. I think that’s a pretty good deal! Unfortunately, I no longer have a table with the right sort of leg. Rats!

    • Pam, Marie said she found those in Kroger last year. When I was in a Kroger a few weeks ago, they had a bunch of Halloween stuff. Thanks for the tip on the table socks!

      • pam ~ crumpety cottage says

        Kroger! I never would have guessed that, lol. Thanks for letting me know. 😀 And you’re welcome about the table socks. 😉 They are so cute!

  30. What a great fun table! I know her grandchildren love it. I wouldn’t mind eating there myself…

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
