Formal Halloween Tablescape

Most tablescape bloggers are showing very elaborate and highly decorated tables this week. Pat and I wanted to do "something different" - as usual - for our first Halloween table. Next week we'll bring on the black color, the spiders, the spooky. The table this week focuses on a more formal holiday. Pat did use a less formal Fiestaware (albeit plum colored and orange), but also added stemmed goblets, tapered candles and a simple, classic napkin fold.

The centerpiece features a very detailed Department 56 Raggedy Witch in matching plum and orange colors. Pat raised her up to show better and then placed orange netting on the table to create a "ghost-like, misty" feeling. This is definitely not your usual Halloween table.

The place setting uses a miniature pumpkin grown in Pat's garden.

These goblets are from Pier 1 last year.

You can see the detail of the purple Noritake flatware.

Pat used black Depressionware candlesticks.

Betty, naturally, dressed for the occasion in stunning black gauze and spiders.

Betty's dog also dressed up.
