Halloween Witches Table - Tablescape Thursday

This week, in the spirit of the Halloween season, I have a bewitching tablescape.  Many thanks to our hostess, Susan at Between Naps On the Porch.  You can view many creative tablescapes from this week's participants by clicking here.



As the midnight hour approaches, the cauldron begins to boil and the spells are cast.



Black chargers are from Hobby Lobby, black dinner plate and salad plate is from Target.  Gold flatware was a gift from my Mom a few years ago.  Napkins are used to anchor the setting, rather than a placemat.  Napkins are from Home Goods and are used on the table in reverse patterns....black with orange polka dots and orange with black polka dots.



Centerpiece is a grouping of items that can be found in any self -respecting witches store room.



Amber glassware is Breeze by Noritake, purchased on a recent trip to the Smoky Mountains.  Cappuccino cups are Pietra from Circleware and purchased at Marshalls.











Candleholder is made from two bowls turned in opposite directions with one acting as a pedestal.

All the best,


Pin It!
