Take Your Hat Off Tablescape

Beaulah's friends flew in for a day!
  They just threw
their hats on the table but with a twitch of their
noses, it turned into a beautiful centerpiece.

I decided to set the table for them to have an elegant

I told them I would decorate for
their hats and they were thrilled

Fortunately I had some adorable black and white
pumpkins that I had just picked up this year.

I put them together with a stack of black and white plates.

Shiny black goblets,

And I had picked up some fun black and white flatware
when I visited Washington DC this year.

Some of their friends showed up and wanted in on the

She really sparkled!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said... I don't even need to look at any other Halloween tablescapes...this will be my favorite. The black and white pumpkins are so cute I can't stand it and the flatware...I've never seen any like it. I love this...the humor, the glitz. It is elegant and fun. Perfection!

Hi Jacqueline,

It's so good to hear you enjoyed La Jolla Grove and you have so many terrific resources there, Gardner Village, etc. Do you ever frequent Orson Gigi? Before our mission I had a little boutique and bought a lot of bulk items there.

You do everything so well. I appreciate how you use some of your accessories again and show different ideas. These ghosts are adorable, each way you used them. I am "interested" and off to check out your mold source. Thanks!

Jane said...

Love the black and white theme. And that pumpkin...if it's missing, you might check here in FL. :-) Love it!
