A Halloween Tablescape

With October 31st quickly approaching, I couldn't miss the opportunity to set a fun Halloween table.


I apologize for the wrinkled tablecloth. It's a glossy plastic on the other side & I couldn't iron it with high heat for fear it'd melt!


Let's see, the pumpkin bowls are from Christmas Tree Shop. Black Flatware from Target.


My Debbie Mumm Halloween plates. I love these plates. I've had them for at least 10 years, well before I ever heard the word "tablescape." Orange dinner plates were a Dollar Tree find this past summer.



The Frankenstein plate is my favorite one in the set.



Green mercury glass pumpkin from Tuesday morning. I used some of my kids' Goosebumps DVDs to add a little height to the candle.


Green bubble goblets from Target.


I'm linking this to:

The mother of all Tablescape parties...Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
Open House Thursdays at No Minimalist Here
Feathered Nest Friday at French Country Cottage
Potpourri Friday at 2805
Falling for Crafts at One Artsy Mama

I'm sure that Halloween happiness will be in abundance at each party, so go check it out!

And as always, I appreciate each & every one of you & your sweet comments.

This is so cute! I love all the festive orange and green. I've seen that stemware out and about, and I have been wanting to get a set. I love the bubble look to it and the color.

We never find ANYTHING good at our Dollar Tree. I'm so envious.

I have to play "catch up." It's been a busy week. You are the best at Party Details! I can see why your phone was ringing off the hook! And although I an not a Yankee Fan, I have met Alex (when he was a kid and a Tacoma Rainier), I love Jorge's spirit, and Mark T. is very handsome!
Oh wait...we're talking tablescapes!
You set the greatest table...from the park to the patch...pure love!
One again, you hit it out of the park, Mama Yankee!
