The costume debate finally ended in our house, and Catwoman and an Alien will be hitting the streets for candy next week. The porch and mantel are decorated, and the teacher treat bags complete…so all that remained was to wait for Halloween.
Until my last Target run, where I found the cutest black and white striped tapers….and all of a sudden, we neeeeeded a Halloween table!
Like the rest of the decorations, I stuck to a black and white color scheme, and raided my house for supplies.
I used the spooky holiday as an excuse to leave the silver tarnished. The pumpkin centerpiece is from last year’s Tricked Out Pumpkins…the bird and mini skull heads from the Dollar Store. I was going to glitter the pillar candles, but opted to wrap them in glittered scrapbook paper so the look would be temporary.
The snake nest place cards are a little DIY I’ll show you tomorrow.
As are the glittered bug plates!
Mr. Sugarplum panicked when he saw the table, thinking he’d forgotten a dinner party. I played it off as a surprise for the kids….which is partially true since they love having breakfast here! (Never reveal the full scale of crazy!)
It’s a fun and graphic table, with just the right touch of creepy and spooky for us. Have you seen my pal Courtney’s Halloween table? He’s the king of tablescapes! Are you ever
possessed inspired by impulse purchases?
