I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

Halloween Dinner Party.


My Inspiration for this Tablescape was the love of
Halloween with Family and Friends . 

I only have four layers of dinnerware for each setting this time. 
I made my orange and black napkins for this Halloween setting this week.

I purchased my new glass dinner plates from Hidden Treasures.
The pattern is Sandwich and the company is Tiara , from the 1940th. the
color is a Amber just beautiful ! all eight for $8.00 this was a great buy for being on
a Budget.

The wine glasses are the same Pattern and from Hidden Treasures
all eight for $7.00 this also was a great buy.
How do you like my new Napkin rings~~ 
Black Spiders holing a tea candle. 
I purchased from the Randall food store.
Time to light the candles and have a glass of wine.
I hope you are having a good time !!!

I know it's time to have dinner... 
The joy of eating a toss green salad covered with Ranch dressing, two
stuffed jalapenos with crawfish and cream cheese, wrapped with bacon then bake for 45mins at 350f
Now for the main menu! We are having charbroiled ribeye steaks, baked potatoes 
covered with butter, sour cream, bacon bits, and chives. Along with fresh baked 
garlic bread. Desert is going to be my husbands and my favorite, 
chocolate moose. Sooooo yummy!!!

This is my new candle holders from Hobby Lobby.
The color is amber and black. 

I hope you all come Back!!!
Please take a moment to comment. Thank you so much!
I am linking up with these Blogs for there linky parties.

Jacqueline said...

Ooooooohhhhhh, those spiders are truly spine tingling! I adore those and if you lived closer who knows what might disappear out the door after I came to visit!!!!! They are fabulous and those wonderful napkins are incredible too. The funny thing is that my little orange and purple spiders came from a local grocery store too. Love it!

Marcia said...

I love it, Diane, you always have such wonderful tables. I look forward to them every week. I love how you layer your plates. I need to find some good bargains to add to my very small collection. The spiders are fun and the menu simply yum.
Always a pleasure stopping by, dear.
Much love to you.

Debbie said...

My favorite part of all is the spider napkin rings. That's just ingenious, and it works double duty as a votive holder.

I love your vintage amber plates, and the napkins look wonderful.

Just all around a GREAT job!

Phyllis said...

Oh, the table is so much fun, and the big black spider votives are "over the moon" cute! I find it most interesting that you make your own napkins. That is something I would like to explore. Happy Halloween to you.

Phyllis said...

I have commented on your post a few days ago, but I am still loving it and finding new things that I did not see the first time. The tablecloth of the black gauzy fabric is just perfect, and the ribbon decorated pumpkin is so pretty. The black crow adds and element of "scare".

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Diane...

What a beautiful Halloween table, my friend! I love the large pumpkin and pretty autumn florals that you used for the centerpiece! Ohhh...and the place settings are gorgeous! What a great deal you got on those fabulous amber dinner plates and stemware! Sooo pretty! Okay...I have to admit...your new little spider votives that you are using atop the napkins...steal the entire show, my friend! They are soooo cute!!! Can spiders be cute? Hehe! They really are awesome and I think they make your entire Halloween table! Ohhh...and I love the black webbing that you used on the table covering too! What a creative lady you are, Diane!

Thank you so much for sharing this awesome Halloween table with us for the Sunday Favorites party this week! This was such a treat!

Warmest autumn wishes,
Chari
