It's time to set the table once again for Tablescape Thursday with Susan at "Between Naps On The Porch". And this week I'm feeling just a little.....
Wicked! We went to see the touring production of Wicked this week and it was really fun -- so I set a wicked table this week!
Hope you'll join us at the table....now don't be scared...because now we know that old witch really isn't all that wicked after all!
A table full of black and green.
And here's a place set just for you!
Sitting in the center pretty as you please is sweet Glinda -- formerly known as "Galinda".
She's thinking about how *"Popular" she is!
And who's sitting upon this witches' shoe (well it's no ruby slipper!)...but...
...Elphaba...."who?"....you may have heard her called the "wicked witch of the west". The witches' shoes are salt and pepper shakers from years ago (ABC Distributing)
And watch out for that monkey too....looks like he hasn't gotten his wings....yet.
Our centerpiece is on the same frame as last week (different paper) to go with this weeks theme.
Who's that *"defying gravity"?
I tried to get a closer look but she's a bit blurry (tough to get a good picture of a witch in flight).
Then I almost startled her off her broom with the flash!
I gave up and took a picture of the ornament box -- since these tickets were part of our Christmas gift this year, I got this ornament to remind us of coming attractions.
Here's our green napkin tied up with a black polka dotted wired ribbon. Now if I lived next door to Miss Janice I would have popped over and borrowed her cute witch hat napkin rings she used for Halloween. They would have been perfect! Oh well.
My green goblets....again....I've used them three weeks in a row! They were a wonderful Goodwill find.
Let's take a peek at the dishes...the salad plates and matching green napkins came from Target. I think they're still on display there.
These black dishes were a close out sale at K-Mart. I was wanting some black plates for Halloween...I'm sure I'll be able to find much use for these.
My black cork backed placemats were from Tuesday Morning last year. You've seen them and the shell flatware many times in previous tablescapes.
Here's a view of the table from the broom....
....and we'll swoop closer to see the centerpiece.
Another look at our table before night falls....
...and we'll light the candles.
A not so wicked after all Elphaba....and....
...a not entirely nice Glenda....and if you look very closely....you can see our flying witch circling overhead....maybe they'll be coming in for a landing at your town soon...if so, I hope you'll get a chance to see them!
For lots of friendly tablescapes, be sure to visit "Between Naps on The Porch" this week....perhaps you'll find a tablescape that will transport you to another place and time and see something...unexpected!
