A Spooky ‘Scape

2015-09-20 08.25.49

I absolutely love to create my Fall table, but now that all of my entertaining stuff is in one place (sort of), I realized how many Halloween pieces that I have.  Or at least enough to pull together a spooky scape!  Yes, I’m that mom who says “OH, NO!” to any and all yard blowups and that definitely applies to Halloween, but why not get a little hallowed in the dining room.

I have had these glitter pumpkins for YEARS and if you have been following me, I am sure you have seen them for about three years now, but they are just so great and festive that I keep bringing them out year after year.  With the exception of the glittered black trees on the table that I picked up from the Dollar Deals at Target, I already had everything to pull together my mantle and table.

Last year I picked up these spooky melamine plates on clearance at Kroger the day after Halloween.  Always, always great deals the day after!!! The gold trimmed flatware that belonged to Drew’s grandmother was the perfect addition to the gold details of the table.

I’m a sucker for a sale, especially a Joss & Main sale, which is where I picked up my gold swirl glassware.  A black swizzle stick kind of looks like a witch’s staff to me, does it to you?  You know what they really are?! The sticks to my mini-American flags that I used on my Patriotic Table a couple of years ago.  I’m so resourceful! HA HA!!!

I am totally in love with the beautiful celadon hue of the dried hydrangea.  They are working overtime from Baker’s party when they were fresh.  I simply left them in the vases without water and they dried this gorgeous color.  I used black tulle to drape as a swag on the mantle and added in gold glitter pumpkins and gourds along with my black glitter haunted house candles.  At night when I turn on the accent light over the mantle, it gives the sticks a spooky shadow on the wall.

I found these haunted house candles years ago at a little store in Clarksville on after season clearance.  With the glitter trees on the table and the candles on the mantle, they pull the two areas together.

I haven’t yet decided if I am going to host a spooky supper, but I’m thinking roasted beets and black spaghetti and anything else I can find to really bring Halloween to my table.
