BOOtiful Tablescape

Halloween Howdy, Bloggy Friends. It's time for Tablescape Thursday over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks, Susan, for hosting this fun party.

I've set my Halloween table in the dining room. Come on in, I have a special place for you.


I started with these placemats which I got at Dillard's last year. (After they went on sale)

I layered my white Gollum dinner plate with my black polka dot salad plate.



I got these black bowls today at the Dollar Tree to finish the setting.
Here's your place setting. I've given you a black rose, because I want you to feel special. :)





These cute napkins rings were also from Dillard's last year. They were ridiculously priced until they went on sale.




I had to have them. I think they are hand painted.



My centerpiece is simply a cheap, plastic witch's pot. I spray painted some dead twigs from my yard with Halloween Black hairspray.

Then I stuck some foam Halloween shapes I found also today at the Dollar Tree, and I had a centerpiece that was practically free.




Here's the menu. Doesn't it sound yummy? :) (Dollar Tree)


I had these plates from last year. Can't remember where I got them.

Oooooohhhhhh! Twilight, candlelight time.....................................
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY TONIGHT, I ALWAYS LOVE IT WHEN YOU DO. FLY ON OVER TO SUSAN'S FOR MORE FUN.

This is great. Your table is wonderful. I agree...I need to visit the Dollar Tree too. I would have never thought you got so many goodies there. Your table is great looking and fun too.

GREAT napkin rings!!! They are perfect for the whole table setting!!! I know what you mean about hating to pay full price for stuff like that...avoid it at all costs!!! Glad you were able to snag them on sale. Have a Happy Halloween!!!

Sorry...I didn't mean to post as an anonymous person (above). I don't want you to think I'm some weird stalker woman! I just hit the wrong button!

I think the whole table is great, and the added detail of the black rose is funny and clever. My favorite things of all are those great napkins rings. Love them!
