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
meal.


I told them I would decorate for
and
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
dinner.







I was surprised because they turned out to be
pretty classy ladies.












We cackled the day and night away!!!


She really sparkled!
Beaulah even whipped up another batch of her
black licorice caramels for the ladies.

Thanks for flying by.  Hope you are having as
much fun for Halloween as we are.

Beaulah will also be posting this on

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.

  8. The hat luncheon was so cute and imaginative. Love the mouse/rat guests, but my favorite part was Beualah's shiny tooth -- Zoulah needs to get some bling too. Those black and white pumpkins are so cute. Joni

  46. 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!
