Halloween Tablescape

Life has gotten very busy lately and we are doing some reno's in our master bedroom and en suite bathroom so I haven't had the time to blog/comment as much as I'd like and my apologies to you all.  I did manage to get a Halloween tablescape together for this week's Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan of Between Naps on the Porch.  I'm sure there will be lots of very scary 'scapes to check out!


I started out with more of a "cute" themed table but it gradually changed ....




...into a more sinister 'scape.  I got Ms. Witch last year at the half price sales after Halloween and decided to make her the centerpiece of my table.   She is guarded by two ever-watchful black ravens perched high on some Partylite candle holders.



Mr. Delight helped me set up some different lighting for this shot and I like the effect created on the table.



The skulls that flank Ms. Witch are some I have had
for awhile now.
  I put a tealight inside to give them a spooky glow.


I cut off the black spider in this pic but he is waiting to see what evil potion is being poured into this glass.
  A "possessed" skull is screaming inside the other glass.
 (glass looks dusty but really, it is the lighting!)



I used some black/white swirl plates on black chargers.



The napkins are graced with some lovely cut off witches' fingers.


More light to see what evil lurks....





A closer look at one of the skulls




Are you frightened yet?




Happy Halloween!

A lovely, spooky table! Like the skulls in the wine glasses - nice touch! Also, like the idea og the upside down buckets! Wish I had thought of that for my party!

You did a great job on your table, like you usually do. You're really talented, DD! I enjoyed looking at your pictures and even studying them, lol.
Liked the big witch on the center, that's a great guest!
Also your cute dotted plates, that's original!
