Boo to You Tablescape

Beaulah is sooooo excited to show off
her first tablescape for this year, she
worked her warty little hands off on this one,

but first....

she wants to warn you that you
have less than 48 hours to enter
in the 
for this beautiful
7 quart hammered copper
soup station from 
Williams Sonoma.

ends at
Thursday night, September 29, 2011!


Beaulah is just thrilled with how
many have joined in on the fun.

She just wishes she had some magic
where she could wave a wand and
have 100 cauldrons, I mean pots
to give away.

Beaulah wanted to have some of the
over for a little fun.

She loves to watch over my shoulder
as I play around on the internet and she
saw this clever idea for s'mores in a jar

by a fairly new blogger at

Go pay Rachel a visit and see
her wonderful parties and ideas.
She has great photography and
last week was her first tablescape!
I know she would love to hear from you.

After checking out Rachel's flavor ideas,
we chose to make Chocolate Ghost S'mores
using ghostly marshmallows, Hersheys and
chocolate graham crackers.

I told her we also had to make some wonderful soup
to feature our soup station on the table,
so we decided on White Chicken Chili
to keep with the ghostly color theme.

We stacked all white plates and topped them
with a ghostly trio bowl.

Each witch receives her own little
jar of s'more goodies.


These fun skewers were purchased on a trip 
to Turkey.

I just love their little faces peering at you.

The fire is lit and Beaulah and
the girls are ready to start partying.

(HELP HELP, let me out, they are going to eat me!)

Yup! They are going to eat you.

Beaulah wants to thank you 
for sharing in her fun party
and she wants to post her
girl's party with

Plates - Tai Pan
Bowls - Target
Placemats - Wal Mart
Copper Soup Station - Williams Sonoma
Goblets - Pier 1

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. Beulah did a fabulous job! She certainly learned from the best :), now does Zoulah know about this?? xo

  2. Jacqueline, Beaulah has really outdone herself! This is a really cute vignette! Love the ghost marshmallows...too cute!

  8. Beulah's learned from the best and she's sweet enough to share ideas with us! We will have to do the ghost smores with our grandkids!

  9. Oh, do I see BOO Peeps?.. Well, maybe they don't call'em Peeps after Easter??.. but I'm going to watch for these on my next shopping trip!.. Love those BOO bowls too! So CUTE! ~tina

  10. Not only do I love the tablescape but BOO SMORES!!! I love them! I think that is the cutest idea for this week, with the fall leaves up in Sundance all turned, makes me want to start Halloween right by going up the Canyon on Saturday Oct. 1st and have a Boo Smore!

    Thanks for the shout out! Yes please come and visit my little blog!

  11. Well boo back to you and Beaulah, too! Another great table!

  12. Awesome job Beulah!! ;0) I love the idea of setting the table around the fire pit!! Perfect!! Happy Fall!

  13. Beulah is off to a great start. Can't wait to see what else she has for us. I've got my fingers and toes crossed with the hope she'll draw my name for the lovely copper cauldron. ~ Sarah

  14. Such a fun post. Love the Boo Smores in the little jars, too cute.

  15. Really cute Jacqueline! Lovin' the little ghost bowls and your fire pit:@)

  16. I would cherish this piece of copper more than anything. Take a look at my post today and you will see why! I'm a copper lover! from way back.

  17. What a great tablescape and party idea! Love it set around the fire too. My soup kitchen looks so good too! LOL!

  18. What fun Beaulah has cooked up! The ghostly s'mores are tempting my taste buds! I especially love your last two photos! Boo to you too :)

  19. I just adore the little ghost marshmallows, they probably make the best smores.
    Cute post.

  20. I love your white dishes and the boo bowls are too cute!

  21. Beulah is adorable! I love the rims of your plates, real eye candy...

  22. What a cute table. Love the Smores idea, the soup pot and the Spooky sign!

  23. Hey, Jacqueline! Y'know, in the way they are presented here in this tablescape, the handles of the flatware remind me of bones. I don't know why. I'm sure it's something in my psychopathic world that makes them look that way! :-) You are SO ready for Halloween, girl! Hooray for you!!! Those have just got to be the cutest little boo bowls I've seen! Now here's where I really sound dumb: I don't think I have EVER seen chocolate graham crackers!!! I guess I just go in and grab the box I've always grabbed for the last 150 years without thinking about it. Learn somethin' new every day! Great Halloween table!

  24. I love S'mores. Have you ever done them with graham crackers, marshmallows, and peanut butter, instead of chocolate? I used to make them as an after school treat for my kiddos. Beulah is in her normal...over-the-top form. The ghost marshmallows are so much fun, and I love them peeking out of the jar. Thank you for inviting us to join in on the fun. Cherry Kay

  25. what a lovely tablescape! just bootiful!! lol! i really liked the color scheme. the skewers added a unique touch too!

  26. love you jackie! Love the cute jars! lovely table

  27. This is such a fun tablescape! So festive. I especially love your pictures with the fire place/camp fire. :)

  28. I'll tell ya, Beaulah has all the right stuff to throw a fabulous party! Tell her thanks for eating that ghostly s'more for me and I hope she'll float some of her peeps in her grand-brew-ha-ha copper pot! She's got me dreaming of purple, chocolate and copper......sigh.

  29. This is just beyond adorable! I love the little smores in a jar too. Such creative cuteness. I do adore that copper pot --- it's going to be hard not to feel a tad jealous of the winner (unless of course it's me! Fingers crossed!)

  30. I love it, absulutely love it - what is more fun than playing with dishes and what is more fun for the imagination than Halloween! The boo bowls are just the cutest things and what fun for a party. I am in love with the s'mores in a jar party favor and am adding the little ghosties to my shopping list right now! You are a great inspiration to the season!

  31. Hi lovely lady.

  32. Oh this tablescape has sent my heart into a tizzy all over again. I want that sweet coppered gem so bad I can taste it! Or rather the soup that would go in it. :)

    Loved your table and the copper pan enjoyed it so much.

    The copper sticks that you bought from Turkey (I am from ıstanbul) the figuring is a famous Karagöz & Hacivat is a Turkish shadow play taking its name from its main character Karagöz. The origin of the shadow plays is accepted as southeastern part of Asia around Java. Turkish traveler Evliya Çelebi says that the play was first performed at the Ottoman palaces in the late 14th century
