Welcome to my Halloween tablescape!
I don't know about you but I sure have been busy this week making treats and packing up little bags of goodies for our grandchildren. This is by far one of my favorite weeks of the whole year! There seems to be spiders, bats, ghosts, and goblins every where! Even on my table there is no exception. You are bound to find at least one spider and sometimes maybe even two.
Do you like my black chargers? Sometimes I like to layer chargers as I have done here. The black chargers are ones I picked up at the party store a while ago. You can get chargers for just about any holiday at the party store. I like them because they are festive, will last for years, and are relatively inexpensive.
Remember those pumpkin pails I picked up a while back? Well, all I have to do now is fill them with treats. I added a pretty green bow to each one. I think they make great party favors.
I purchased my plates at Pier One Import. I like to use them in the summer, or when I serve Mexican food, and I was thinking they might even be great for a Mad Hatter tea party. Humm....
I will be making my mom's Happy Face cupcakes very soon. To me it just wouldn't be Halloween without them. My little owl sticker is already sitting high on his perch. I think he just may be on the look out for them :>)
I have placed spider webs, jewels, tea lights, and pumpkin candles on the table to give it that party feel. When we have hosted family parties in the past, sometimes we have even placed a cauldron in the middle of the table that was filled with dry ice. Our grandchildren have especially loved that!
This year my center piece is actually my cookie jar. It's a perfect place to store unexpected surprises and treats!
Now all I have left to do is put the candles in my tea lights, the skeleton straws in the glasses, add the greeting cards to my scarecrow photo holders, and fill my little favor pails. Then, at just the right time, I will turn the lights way down low, light the candles, put on some very creepy music, and I will be all set to go.
With warmest regards, Carol
