Boo!


I was thinking of a children's party when I began this Halloween tablescape. 

 Smiling Pumpkins

and funky creepy spiders!

Lots of fun colors and even a treat!

The centerpiece is a square cachepot that I set on a crystal candle holder. Square meets round so I used the Boo ribbon to blend them together.

I used a standard coffee filter, pressed it on the outside of the clay pot with my hands, then pushed it down on the inside to make a liner for the candy! I trimmed it a tad so the pumpkin would sit as tight to the top as possible.  There was room enough for some of those miniature candy packets and chocolate bars but I chose candy corn. 

Keeping the pumpkins plain so a child could draw their own faces on them.
The hats were actually a part of a garland made of hats that I cut apart.
 The black glittered ribbon kind of dressed them up!
I painted the clay pots white since they were too close in color to the orange.

Some fun straws in a lime green swirl glass goblet

The purple napkins added a nice pop of color!
I turned the plates that normally would look square on an angle just to be different!


Imagine some 8 to 10 year old kids sitting here having some fun and enjoying a pizza party, some punch and a little dessert on the night of Halloween and then off they go to trick or treat!!

  3. How fun! I love those smiling pumpkins! That was a genius trick turning the square plates on the diagonal. I love your plate stack that way. What kid wouldn't love those candy cups? What a bonus to draw on them. This is such a great table - you're set for Halloween!

  6. A very fun and colorful table. The happy faces on the pumpkin plates are so cute. A kid's dream, candy cups and all. Love the plate stack! I think adding purple with orange is a lovely contrast.

  7. Hi Liz, what a fun table for the kids and the bigger kids too. So many great ideas here and I love your layered plates and those darling pumpkins faces. The purple is a great contrast and the candy corn cups are a sweet addition. Love how you turned the square plates. I can see this being a great pizza party table before trick or treating!!

  11. The first thing I saw in the way you had the napkin positioned on the pumpkin plates? To me it looked like a pumpkin girl with a super fancy hair bow!!! It's like her "Sunday-go-to-meeting" hat cocked to the side! I love it!

    I'm with Linda...this could be a big kid's table, too! There's nothing here stopping the "kid at heart" from loving it!

    I am SO gonna steal your idea for using the coffee filter as a liner!!! That makes so much sense!

    Fun idea to leave the pumpkin faces blank for kids to do their own artwork and take home as a favor!
