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?
YES! I love it!
LOVE the glitter plates and candles!! Anytime glitter is involved, you betcha I swoon!! 🙂
All perfectly adorable! You did a great job! Looks like you and Carmen spotted the same candles! I want some too!
SO funny – I posted about those candlesticks today too! They inspired my very first Halloween mantel!
that is really creepy cassie, especially the snake nest…i am really scared of snakes!
but i love how it turned out 🙂 my favorite? the glitter candles, the pumpkin with the black bird on top, the skull heads…actually almost everything except the snake nest, lol!!
I had the EXACT some candles in my basket last week…then I put them back and decided instead on other Halloween decorations….now I am regretting it!
Thank you for the shout out lady! And what are you talking about?? I have seen you grow in leaps and bounds in the last year — you are rocking it! Now where is my breakfast invite…..
I would call this – ELEGANTLY CREEPY – great job Cassie!
How fun!!! Those tapers are so great! And I bet your kids are loving it!
SO cute! I LOVE your table.
Love the black and white and glitter! Super cute and fun!
Hot bananas. That looks AWESOME. Love the black and white. You and Carmel scored on those candles.
"Never reveal the full scale crazy." That is some seriously sound advice. You are so so wise.
