Halloween Table Setting

I'm just so happy to share this
Table Setting
It is the first time I have done a
Table Setting (Tablescape)
For Bloggerville to see.
I hope you like it.
 I use to have lots of pretty table ware
But then I down-sized and many of my beautiful dishes I gave away.
Silly Me!
I have started to collect again
 I find many of my plates and bowls at the thrift store
And I buy lots of things when department stores have them on sale.
I found these napkins and napkin rings 50% off
 My cute witch shoes are salt and pepper shakers
I just found them this year
(among my many collections are salt and pepper shakers)
 The pumpkin bowl I think is adorable.
So happy and cheerful
 The orange plates and the bowls are new
But the salad plate I found at DI (thrift store)
I have always loved a pretty table setting.
But, once my children grew up and my husband died
I just kind of lost my desire to "fuss" over a cute table setting
You know what?
After visiting each week
And seeing all the great blogging gals that link up to their parties
I started to miss the days of decorating a table
So I think I am back to "fussing" over my table settings
It will take me a few times and I will be
back in the groove again.
Thanks to all of you gals that show your TABLESCAPES
I have visited many of your blogs
You inspire me!


  1. I love it. Your tablecloth is fabulous. Love all the fabrics and all the colors. Your dishes are perfect. I also really like the beads draped on the candelabra. Beautiful table. Hugs, Marty

  3. welcome to tablescaping! i've only done one, too, since i don't have any other dishes. but i have a ton of halloween only stuff, so maybe i'll do another. i LOVE those leaf plates, that is a great find!

  4. Hi Karie,
    Welcome to the wonderful world of blog tablescaping! You will certainly fit right in! Your table is so festive and fun!
    I love your tablecloth. It is so full of great Halloween colors!
    I also love to collect dishes from thrift shops and I am the queen of the bargain! You really put together a detailed and spooktacular table.
    So nice to stop by and meet you!

  5. Good for you, Karie! I don't join in every week, but every so often I get the urge - like I did this week. I don't have a lot of dishes, but I've purchased some things inexpensively and figured on interchanging things. I'm thinking of seeing what's on clearance this year as far as tableware. I love your napkins and napkin holders. The witches shoes salt and pepper shakers are very cool!

  6. Hi Karie, so happy to have you join in! Love all your cute Halloween goodies, especially those adorable s&p shakers! I also shop frequently at the thrifts, can't beat it!

  9. Sometimes we do have to take a sabbatical from things in our lives. I'm so glad that you've been encouraged to pick up tablescaping again because you obviously have a passion for it. I'll be excited to see what you collect and share as time goes forward. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
