Tablescape Thursday - A Little Spooky

Tablescape Thursday is my favorite blogging day! I love all the ideas I get from all you creative bloggy friends -- now lately some of you have been quite creative with your Halloween tables -- very scary! Some of them would scare the warts off a witch and the wiskers off a kitty!!!! I decided to join the fun -- but mine's the "scaredy cat" version.

Here we are approaching our little bit spooky was such a dreary day and night when these pictures were taken -- although that's perfect for spooky halloween...don't you think?

Our witch is the queen of the table today. Actually she's rather handsome...don't you think? I got her this year from Tuesday Morning.

My poor little garden froggy is trying to hide so she won't boil him up in her caldron!

The black crow perched overhead to welcome our

Spiders invite you to have a little "bite".

Our witch is almost ready for her big flight night!

What a profile!

A spider coming down off the light to see what's going on and hoping to catch some flies.

The owl wonders "Whooooo's" going to eat here?

Our sparklie black cat is surprised to see you tonight!

The eyes of the peacock feathers are watching you!!!

Watch out for the spider cider will make you tingle all over and you just might not wake up in the morning!

Your placesetting if you dare to stay and eat tonight. The napkins came from Marshalls the napkin rings (pony tail bands) from Target. Now let's take it down to the bare bones...shall we?

My old pewter plates over black chargers (actually they're my pink and orange ones turned over).

Tattered cheesecloth is a little spooky too --- don't you agree? Perhaps it was left by "Mummy".

At least the jack-o-lantern looks pretty friendly! Now I've got to take this all down because our grandgirls (the twins) are coming over for a friendly halloween supper (see the tablesetting from last week's post) -- and I wouldn't want them to think Nana and Papa-Daddy live in a haunted house!

For lot's of fun tablescapes and really spooky ones sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch".......if you dare!!!!!!

See ya!


  1. Your spooky tablescape is so cute. I am going to copy how you have spider wed hanging off your chandelier. The little witch doll is as cute as can be.

  2. Great Halloween table, Martha. Love the look of the tattered cheese cloth.

  3. Hey Martha!

    What fun! I love the whimsy of it. Your delightful sense of humor really comes through as you describe the various elements.

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving the thoughtful comments. I wish I could un-love some of my little collections (I could make room for more purchases!) ... if I do, I'll put your name at the top of the list! ;)

    Happy Halloween!

  31. Very creative, Martha! I really like the crow on the chandelier, and the peacock feathers, nice touch!

  32. Hi Martha,
    This is the perfect table for me! I don't like being too scared at mealtimes (don't want to get heartburn!) and your witch looks quite friendly and welcoming!
    Thanks so much for visiting me and leaving such a lovely comment-It's so nice to "meet" you!
    Happy Halloween and best wishes, NM.

  33. Love the pewter don't see those much anymore...I had a whole set back in the 70's....Love the witch but really liked that sparkly cat....Happy Halloween!!

  34. OH that witch is spooky if you ask me!! I like the spiders the best (I think the frog should cook THE WITCH in the CAULDRIN). I love the pewter plates!! I don't see much pewter any more---oH, Ha...I just saw Sue's note above and she said the same thing!

  35. Opps I gave the wrong link it appears. When you click on my name!! let me see if this works!!
