Very simple Halloween table

Posted by maximavswife (My Page) on

It was just DH and I and I had had a busy day with yard work but I did find time to set a simple Halloween table. I bought the napkins and the sparkly spider web tablecloth on clearance at Kohl's last year. The napkin rings were a thrift store find and reminded me of snakes. The silver chargers came from Target dollar spot. The plates are paper and were clearance finds at HL last year. I purchased the Jack O' Lantern, boa, books and candlesticks when I went thrifting with Christmas Candy a few weeks ago. The candlesticks were originally white but I spray painted them with flat black with Halloween in mind. I notice CC and I found the same book and used in our decor :) Please pardon the quality of the photos. I took the pictures with my Iphone.

MM, did you do this before Halloween, or are you just still enjoying all your finds? Nice that you were able to use the treasures you found while shopping with CC. I love the title of that book "Son of a Witch"! LOL Hope your DH enjoyed your cute table too. Luvs

Luvs,
Nope I did this Sunday for our Halloween dinner. I am still enjoying my deals found while shopping with the thrift store queen, CC. DH did enjoy the table as well as the special meal I prepared, roasted beast w/ fall veggies(roast beef)with bats brains (cauliflower)in a dijon cheese sauce and mashed ghost guts (potatoes) with vampire gravy (red wine gravy) :)

Kath, I also love the title of that one book. LOL. And the boa on the Jack's head, makes him look like a Punk Rocker. (I find them scary too, LOL).
I cracked up over your menu wording, that would have sent my DH running for nearest fast food place.

Such fun, everything!
hugs, Karen

Kath, great to see your new finds and I enjoyed seeing all your other tables too. You have so many pretty dishes that I couldn't resist browsing and enjoying. Thanks.

Karen, DH is such a good sport :) He was actually helping to come up with names for the food :) I balked at anything he wanted to use the word "pus" in LOL!
Jeanne, I wish I could use that cloth for other 'scapes as it is really pretty IRL....hmmm...maybe I'll incorporate it into our anniversary tablescape?? LOL! And shopping w/ CC was such a thrill.
Ahh Punk, thanks for looking at my other tablescapes :) I don't have to explain to anyone here the dish obsession we each fall victim to :) I am super excited as I have found my dream dining table and will be going at lunch today to pick it up. We will eventually be turning our never used formal living room into a dedicated dining room. The future tablescaping I will be able to do kept me up most of the night!

Kath....Cute tablesetting for your 'Halloween Meal.
I agree with Jeanne your web tablecloth is cool, and a great color. It's also different from what we've been seeing. Love the Book Title....very funny.
I peeked at your other photos too, and enjoyed your pretty settings. TFS
