Tablescape Thursday...It is Halloween time! 2 for One

Time for Tablescape Thursday, thanks to Susan at
Check out her blog and see who else is setting a great Table scape.

Since I have been so busy lately and haven't joined in Table Scape Thursday
for a while, thought I would give you two for one Tablescapes this week.
First I did the kitchen table in some fun colors for Fall and my always favorite RED.

With sort of a Rooster theme here with Fall pears, golds, reds and cream.

For the place setting I used our everyday dinnerware layered with some textural cream colored
salad plates.  Used our red crystal stemware and our red handled flatware.

A really dear friend gave me the rooster tapestry place mats lately as a gift and previously the
napkins with the leaves on them, so I wanted to use them all in a table scape.
Thanks Marilyn!!

The rooster topiaries I have had for a long time, somethings I got at
Joyworks in Snohomish WA. a favorite gift shop of mine.
I placed some faux pears in like colors in an old glass compote for the
center of the table also.

Time to eat!

Table #2
The Dining Room done up for Halloween.

All things I had already I just maybe mixed and matched them in a different
way this time. Alot of black, some white, some sparkle, some glitter.
I like the glitter pumpkins alot, they add a touch of elegance.

We recently scraped the popcorn off our ceilings in these rooms, so we have been enjoying
them.  And I can now show off our ceiling medallion with the chandelier also.

On the buffet or side board some more glitter things, little crows, big crow, pumpkins, leaves and nests.
I see now though that I needed to change the color of the candles in the girandoles though.

A closer look at the place setting; our everyday flatware, jewel edged chargers ( Michael's), Halloween plates ( Party City), little striped bowls  and glitter pumpkins ( Michael's) and used black and cream napkins and black stemmed stemware we had.

Hard to see my centerpiece here; larger glitter pumpkins put at different heights in
different urns etc. and a glitter nest and a crown or two.

On the Etegere our punch server filled with glitter pumpkins and topped with a witches hat I made.
And then for just a change, this cute Halloween doll that just came today for my collection
( a previously ordered anniversary gift from hubby), so I tried her in the center of the table, pretty cute!
Happy Halloween Everyone!

Beautiful tablescapes! I love the crows on the candelabras and the orange and black damask plates! Upon closer inspection I see that the damask pattern actually has skeleton crossbones and spiders in it! Perfect for the season. Thanks for the comment on my Halloween tablescape! Happy Halloween!

You had me at the rooster table but I LOVE your Halloween table. I really love the glittery pumpkins. I love the vibe of the table kinda gothic kinda glamorous. I think I found my inspiration for next Halloween, thanks!
