Spiderella Tablescape

This grand old dame takes center stage on
todays Spiderella table.

With all of her glitter and sequins and fluff
I am sure you are not surprised that she would
be one of my favorites when it comes to spiders.

Now that's a face that could scare anyone.
(Let's be honest here, I really, really, really hate
spiders, big and small, but the spiders that
came to the dinner table tonight, I can live with them!)

The grand dame has called all of her little minions
to come and join her for this spookified table.

It's purple and orange and spiders tonight
with matching candy corn.  (Didn't know it came
in purple too!)

And we have moved into the formal dining room,
nothing less for the fine old lady.

They almost seem to stand guard over
their nest of corn.  Do you dare to steal
some off the plate?

(Watch the fangs guys!)

How about these buzzard leg candlesticks
in purple bling?  They match our Spiderella perfectly.

Of course, she rates the beautiful
purple bubble glasses for tonight's setting.

A view of the lady from the top.

Better make sure she doesn't crawl around
the house anywhere.

The table center also has metal haunted 

a favorite spot for creepy crawlies.

And one or two bats for good measure.

(All with bling bling outfits too - this is a
fancy dinner party.)

A purple charger starts the place setting,
topped by a ruffled purple dinner plate,
then a textured white smaller dinner plate
and a ruffled orange salad plate completes
the lush stack.

Fringed purple napkins with a napkin ring 
fashioned from a Halloween floral accent
the place settings.  Black flatware complete
each setting.

Our creepy crawlies alternate between orange and purple.

So glad you came to dine with us.  

Tonight's dinner menu  was

We also threw in some 
"green salad" from two posts ago
(remember the Green Slimed Popcorn?)

We invited 3 
neighborhood witches 
for dinner while their parents
were out of town.

They were delightfully

(So they said.)

begged them to stay,
but they had to fly on home.
(They did tell them parents ALL about
their fabulous Halloween feast!)

The grand dame Spiderella and her
creepy crawlies want to go party with


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.


  1. You must have more storage space than I have living space. You have the coolest stuff! What a fabulous the spiders on the plates...I so would not touch any of their candy corn.
