Happy Halloween Tablescape-Smiling Jack-O-Lantern

I am re-running a tablescape that I did for Halloween last year.    This is a fun idea for an easy tablescape, and something the children will love.

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.
