Halloween and Dogs Table

Since Pat and I are both animal lovers, we couldn't resist buying Pier 1's Halloween plates this year.
This week's table is orange and blue themed instead of traditional orange and black

Pat always pulls out the "bone" place mats and "dog collar" napkin rings when she sets a "doggy" table




The dinner plate and matching bread/butter plate is Fiesta(ware) "Tangerine."

Chargers are Royal Blue "Color Spectrum" by Mikasa


Another set of glassware that a true tablescaper would own - from the Dollar Tree. They are versatile and priced right.

Love the "dog collar" like napkin rings. We found them on eBay.

Halloween Table

Have you ever been lucky enough to walk into Michael's (the great craft store) and discover they're marking all Halloween crafts and flower arrangements 90% off? Well, we did last year (granted, it was almost Christmas but we couldn't pass it up.) We got the centerpiece for this week's table and the table on our other blog for less than $20. The hardest part was where to store them......






First layer in the stack of Fiesta(ware) is a black Bread/Butter plate


Since Homer Laughlin does not produce Fiesta(ware) bread/butter plates anymore (and I collect them), all of our 32 different colors come from Replacements.com. 

This is a "Lemongrass" salad plate

Next is a "Poppy" Luncheon plate

This is a "Black" Dinner plate

The charger is Apple green "Color Moods" by Cristal D'Arques-Durand Crystal from Replacements.com

We found these felt spider-web like place mats at Target years ago
