I love Tablescape Thursdays.....don't you? I'm always amazed at the wonderful tablescapes I get to view each week -- from the very formal china settings to informal snack trays -- and I love them all! Tablescaping is quite an art form and I love "playing" along -- so much so, that I usually really jump the gun and post on Wednesday morning.
I set this tablescape with my grandgirls in mind. I want to start a tradition of a fun Halloween supper with them -- whenever the schedule allows (close to the big day!) So I've been playing with the dishes to find a fun and friendly tablescape. Here we are approaching the table. You can see how sheer that orange checked tablecloth is - it would probably show up better if I had a cloth underneath.
Our friendly Halloween scarecrow bids you welcome to our table.
Looks like our scarecrow is so friendly that he's even made friends with the crows! Scarecrow came from Marshalls, Crows from Dollar Tree.
Our grinning boo kitty came from CVS.
Do you get the feeling that you're being watched?
Here's a close up of a placesetting.
I just got seven of these glasses at GoodWill for $6.25 -- I really like them and I know you were getting tired of my other everyday Libby glasses. My paper napkins came from Kroger.
My cloth "napkins" are dish towels from Target and the "napkin rings" are pony tail bands also from Target -- the $1 bins. What would Halloween be without black cats....
....and candy corn....
...and smiling jack-o-lanterns.
The twins get matching pumpkin plates. The placemats are my black and white checked cloth napkins.
I set out two juice glasses for the girls, but they'll bring their favorite sippy cups -- little paper napkins for them --- I guess it's never too early to start on the two napkin rule.
Did you know that vampire bats could look friendly?
A faux "carved" pumpkin from a local craft store. Bewitching!
And yet another black kitty! They're really out tonight!
I am a wife of 35 years, mother of two grown children. and grandmother to 4 adorable grandgirls. I love crafting, tablescaping, decorating -- but am probably not terribly talented at any of these. That doesn't stop me however. I'm so honored that anyone chooses to visit me -- I hope you find this blogspot to be a welcoming spot to visit -- come on in and stay awhile -- let's have a nice chat.
