Halloween Tablescape


Hello Everyone, the wonderful and talented Susan @ Between Naps of the Porch is once again hostingTablescape Thursday.  Be sure to stop by to see all the wonderful tablescapes.

I wasn't sure if I was going to do a Halloween tablescape as I don't really decorate for halloween, but gosh darn it, all your halloween tablescapes were so cute, I just had to try one myself. 

I didn't have a black tablecloth so I used some black paper napkins



Then I put a piece of sparkly material over the top of the napkins, mainly to keep the napkins from flying away



Then I added some "spider webs" and these cute spider plates (they are paper)



More paper plates in Halloween colors were added





I wasn't sure what to do with the napkins, so I stuck them in a plastic pumpkin and put the pumpkin in a martini glass.  Ooh that made me think of a pumpkin martini... Anyone have a recipe?


For the centerpiece I thought a candy filled jack-o-lantern would be perfect.  I wanted the jack-o-lantern to be elevated, hmm what could I use??  This green jar filled with mini pumpkins seemed fitting.



Of course we need candles



Well that's my Halloween tablescape.  I hope you all have a very safe and happy Halloween!

Your layered table dressing really worked out well! I like the webbing on top. Perfect for a fun Hallowe'en party.

Good idea with the napkins. I need to remember that one. It looks like a fun time for all.

This is VERY cute! I think there should be a Tablescape with paper products PARTY!!! Love how you have the candy all over the table. Your frugality (is that a word) sincerely impresses me. HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
