Tablescape Thursday - A little Halloween Party

It's almost that time...when every little goblin comes trick or treating -- so I've set the table for a Halloween supper for my little goblins!




So who's coming to supper?



A little black cat....



...a sweet little devil.....



....a happy jack-o-lantern....



.....and a good little witch.



The smiling jack in the center of the table is one I've had since our kids were trick or treating.




These napkins came from Walmart several years ago and the "rings" were ponytail holders from Target last year.



I've really enjoyed my Treble Clef flatware this year and these placemats are reversible to a toile pattern on the other side....ya gotta love two for one!



Paper Halloween napkins dress up my glasses.



Let's see what's hiding under those masks (from the dollar bin at Target this year). We have black and white checked salad plates from Marshall's I found a few months ago.



The black dinner plates came from Kmart earlier this year.



An overview of the table. Two of my grandgirls are coming for an early Halloween supper this weekend. I'll let them pick out masks and send the other two to my grandgirls in Georgia....wouldn't it be fun for them all to be giggling around the table in their masks?



An overview of the centerpiece ---- I just realized that I didn't get a picture of the scarecrow....that's ok -- he'll make an appearance soon. (He's a little camera shy).


Time to light the tea lights....



.... so smiling Jack can show off his pretty smile!




Good night from the Trick-or-Treat table --- wishing you lots of treats and friendly goblins at your tables. Be sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" this Thursday night for lots of tables set to delight you!

See ya!

  20. a very bright setting, I have seen the treble clef flatware twice today, I have never seen it before, makes for an interesting table!

  21. Very cute table setting! I love the black and white with touches of orange and purple! I so wish I had seen those black gingham napkins a few years ago; they seem so versatile!

  22. I like that most of your items weren't really Halloween, but the elements you did add really defined the setting. My favorite things (I think) are the napkin ponytail rings, they caught me eye immediately. I also like the pumpkin on the bed of black shredding, that's a simple idea that has a lot of impact.

  23. Martha, this table is adorable! I know your granddaughters will LOVE it! What a clever idea, using the masks to dress up the placesettings!

  24. I want to come to your delightful-looking party! I love it all. Would never have even thought to look at pony-tail holders as napkin rings! And, somehow, I never find the $1 bin at Target when there's anything worth having in it. The napkins are so perfect. Well, it's all perfect!

    Best,
    Bonnie

  25. Hi Martha, I so look forward to what you come up with each week, and once again you've created something fun and wonderful. In fact, I'm feeling a little guilty about not having done something special for the granddaughters....maybe you've inspired me, but I will have to get to Houston first.
