Haunted Houses, Skulls and Spiders

Welcome
Have a seat and join me for dinner by candlelight- if you dare!

The witch is circling the old house- we better hurry!

The spiders are working their way in!

I loaded up this cage (from Michaels)  with pieces of faux berries, leaves and pumpkins.  The battery operated candle (T.J.Maxx) offers a gentle flickering that adds to the ambiance.


Ralph Lauren's Spectator plates made a nice pattern to go underneath the Crate & Barrel appetizer or dessert plates (from 2014).  We'll have "finger" food tonight!  Milky white glass dinner dishes create a nice sort of "moon glow" to the setting.


Last year these skulls hung from my chandelier as shown in this post "here"

The orange scarf created a good base for the skulls....

The candles were on clearance from Williams Sonoma. I used some sticky wax to stand them straight in the little glass holders. They burn nice and slowly too which is nice.



Thank you for dropping by- I hope you enjoyed!

I'm joining

  11. A question Liz... 'Is the buffalo check tablecloth black and white? I saw one that is a very dark brown I thought it was black.' Just asking.

  16. I love that you used different plates. I'm learning to mix plate shapes, textures and colors. And I have on my future wish lists tablecloths like this one for few tablescapes. Thank you for more inspiration.

  17. What a creepy, fun table. Love the centerpiece, and I did I understand correctly that the witch circling the house is a candle? Love that. Those dessert plates are great! Well done.
