Tablescape Thursday - Happy Halloween


Today is another one of those fun days when we get to play with our dishes, thanks to Susan @ Between Naps On The Porch. Be sure to go by her blog and see her gorgeous tablescape and a list of all the other participants.

Just a fun tablescape for Halloween.


A happy Jack-O-Latern, all aglow.


I placed the pumpkin on a cake stand in a bed of faux leaves and surrounded by a variety of pumpkins and corn from the Dollar Tree.


Black tablecloth and orange napkins and candles for a real Halloween color scheme.


The candles give such a pretty glow in the evening.


I've used the little leaf bowls from Walmart to hold the candles.


The black stemmed wine glass and the clear goblet both came from the Dollar Tree.


Each placesetting is set with my everyday flatware, orange napkins from GW and wood napkin rings from Pier One.


The leaf plates came from Marshalls on sales for $1 each.


The black and white plates are also from Marshalls for $1 ea and the white plate is the famous Gibson dishes from Big Lots all sitting on a rattan placemat.


This is the happiest pumpkin, he just loves to be all lit up.


A view of the table all set for some ghosts and goblins to join the table.


Thanks so much for stopping by, I always appreciate your visits and hope you come back soon.

Hugs, Marty

  1. Marty, great photos and angles in these shots. How festive and fall like they are. You are becoming quite the photographer and home designer.

    Please greet all of our fellow AZ bloggers at the luncheon. I wish I could join you but next time.

    Blessings,
    Debbie

  17. Hi Marty!

    I've shopped Marshalls while out there in AZ visiting my sister...I sure wish we had them here! You found some wonderful items to add to your collection.

  48. Oh Marty!
    Everything looks so beautiful. I would so love to sit at this festive setting. You did a beautiful job Marty. Just beautiful.

    I too am looking forward to tomorrow. I can't wait to see everyone again. And some new ones also. I thought we would just put a number of each gift as they come in. (I'll bring some tape) Put all the numbers in a little pumpkin. After lunch let each lady draw a number, then we will let them get their gift, and we can share what each of us brought, learn hows if folks want them. It is going to be fun. I think we should do another get together before Christmas. We can talk about that tomorrow too.

    Much love, Sherry
