Haunted House Tablescape

Beaulah and I love to fly around the house
at this time of year decorating, and
having the tables decorated is half
the fun!

Imagine our surprise when we opened
a musty old cupboard (must have been
filled with cobwebs so we couldn't see them)
 and discovered
some brand new plates that had never
been taken out of the box!

"Tee Hee," she laughed, "these will be perfect!"

And so our Haunted House tablescape began.

Not only did we unearth 12 dinner plates
and salad plates, but adorable gold haunted
house bowls,

and coordinating
Eat, Drink and be Scary bowls.

Who knew what treasures lay hiding
in our haunted abode, and in our
favorite gold too?!!

Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch, let 
Beaulah and I know that this gorgeous
twig flatware was on sale at Pier 1,
so Beaulah hopped on her broomstick
and picked a few up ( 20 placesettings
so the whole family can enjoy them!)

Let me say, she had a hard time flying back with them.

The plate stack started with a gold woven
placemat, then favorite purple chargers,
the gold metallic Haunted House plates,
from Home Goods a few years ago - maybe
centuries ago - who knows - and a gold beaded

Our purple bubble glass goblets were
perfect for the table.

The black candle in the middle of the brass
candelabra reminds Beaulah and I of
one of our favorite Halloween Movies,
Hocus Pocus.  

And of course, every respectable haunted house
has black spider webs covering every surface
of the house.

 A little something for all
you witches out there!

I hope you won't be so scared that you
refuse to be seated at our table,
as we would love to

How October is flying by!  
Glad you flew on over to visit us,
and to haunt
Purple Chocolat Home
for a minute or two!

(The three sisters out for an autumn stroll.)

As they say at Disneyland

We will fly on over to party


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.
