Tablescape Thursday - A Wicked repeat.

Hope you don't mind a repeat tablescape from 2010. This week we're going to see the musical "Wicked" for the second time. It's a fun show and a part of our season's Broadway touring theater package for this year. Actually -- how perfect for this month of Halloween. Then later on this week we'll be in Atlanta for Macbeth at the Atlanta Shakesphere Tavern. And of course....more witches!

This was the playbill from the 2010 show.

As you can tell....black and green are the colors of the show.....

....so they're also the colors of my wicked table as well.

Sitting in the center pretty as you please is sweet Glinda --- formerly know as "Galinda" She's thinking about how "Popular" she is!

And on this side we have Elphaba -- you may know her as the wicked witch of the west.

And these shoes are certainly no ruby slippers!

Watch out for the monkey --- even though he hasn't gotten his wings.....yet.

Who's that "defying gravity"?

Had to use the flash to get a better view.

If you've seen the play you know that perhaps that "wicked" witch isn't quite so wicked after all.....and Glenda is not entirely nice either.

Thanks Susan of "Between Naps on the Porch" for providing us this forum each week for dish delights! Hope you'll have a great weekend ....looking forward to reporting on all the fun and witchey drama!

See ya!


  1. Hi Martha! Oh, how cute! I've seen Wicked one time in New York and would love to see it again! You have everything to make it perfect - love that little witch dolls! :)
    Be a sweetie and have a good time.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  2. Oh, I LOVE this! I'll have to show my daughter, too, as she's a HUGE fan of Wicked!!!
    Sounds like ya'll are doing some awesome musical theater/theater trips!!! I went to the Shakespeare Tavern with Tom right after we got married and LOVED it! I had the best pork/rosemary/stuffed fruit sandwich EVER!


  3. Very "Wicked" indeed! I love it, as always! xxoo

  4. Since I just saw "Wicked" for the first time myself two weeks ago, I totally get this table! I appreciate it so much more having seen the musical.

    Isn't it the most wonderful show? I didn't expect the theme/moral of the story, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

  5. I love the black and green...it is wicked!

  6. Well it's just wickedly marvelous and so worthy of a re~run!!!

    It's just great!!!

    God bless ya and have a splendid day!!! :o)

  7. I actually remember this and how cute it all was! Love how you have the dolls and even a monkey! Thanks for sharing again!!!

  8. Hi Martha! We are seeing Wicked on Saturday, can't wait!! I've seen it twice, and my daughter has seen it three times, but we are very excited to see it again. I was just thinking about a Wicked tablescape, and here it is! How clever, you really nailed it! Love how you incorporated all the essentials, where did you ever find it all?? And of course, the green and black is perfect. My daughter danced senior year to 'For Good', and their choir at school sang it as well. It always brings a tear to my eye lol!! Enjoy the show, we're going Sat. at 2, how about you?

  9. I remember wicked! your fabulous table and seeing the play in Chicago.. That tablescape is a perfect rendition of the play.. green and black is just fabulous.. thanks for the memories.. xo marlis

  10. Love the colour combination! It looks very elegant. Thanks for sharing.

  11. How could we mind a repeat when the table is so dang neat? Great nob developing the theme and I'm crazy about the black and chartreuse.

  12. OK, Martha...the monkey is just WAY too creepy! C-R-E-E-P-Y, I tell you!!!!! Geez...he would scare the poop outta me if I looked up and saw him in the shadows! Great scary touch! Fabulous idea to use the colors from the playbill!!! I love chartreuse and black together. Very nice!!!

  13. HOW adorable~! I would LOVE to see WICKED!
    I just bought a large sparkly purple WICKED shelf sitter on ebay. I will have to send you a photo of it. I can't wait for it to get here. Goodness...how great it would have looked at your house!! :)

  14. p.s. the shelf sitter is made of metal! So nice.
