Eek! Uninvited Guests Crash Jackie’s Halloween Dinner Party!

Welcome to the 787th Tablescape Thursday! This is our last Tablescape Thursday before Halloween is here, and I have a very creative, fun table to share with you this week. Recently, Jackie had a special dinner party planned with friends, but before her dinner guests arrived, some uninvited dinner guests crashed the party! Yikes!

Halloween Skeleton Dinner Party


Jackie said, “This year the theme is ”An Evening with Hitchcock and Poe.’ The Kitchen is “The Birds” by Alfred Hitchcock. Most of the other rooms in the house are Edgar Allen Poe’s works.”

By the looks of things, the uninvited guests are having an uproariously good time!

The conversation is certainly lively! Well, make that mostly lively. Muahahaha!

Laughing Skeleton Dinner Party


Such an elegant setting for Halloween. Love the little golden pumpkins at each place setting.

I especially like the black flatware! (Flatware is available here with a coupon/discount: Black Flatware.)

Some of Hitchcock’s birds have landed right in the centerpiece! Eeek!

They’re everywhere–even on the chandelier!

The guests don’t really seem to mind, though–they are partying right into the night.

Starting to get dark out now…

Halloween Night, Skeleton Dinner Party


I just noticed the creepy cloth in the chandelier…love how that looks for a Halloween party! The birds look so realistic and make the scene extra spooky!

Here’s how the table looked when the actual invited guests sat down for dinner.

Jackie did such a great job of decorating the room for her Hitchcock “Birds” themed Halloween dinner party. Scroll through the next few photos to see all her decorations in this room.





Thanks so much to Jackie for sharing this creative, fun Halloween tablescape. I always look forward to what she plans each year and it’s always over-the-top amazing!

    That is just so much fun!!! So glad you shared this, Susan.

  10. Susan do you know who buys and sells silver and polishes since Beverly Beemer died and shop is closed And, have you ever done an article about silver…

    • I’ve done a few posts about it, I think. I used Hagerty Silver Polish:
      That’s what I was told by the staff at Beverly Bremer (many years ago) that they use. I’m not sure who their customers are going to now in the Atlanta area. If you find out, please let me know.

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