Halloween Here We Come!

I couldn't help myself!  I had 
to set a Halloween table. 

You know me, it is time
to get started with a little
Halloween fun.
September whizzes by
and before you can blink
we are at Halloween.

When I was down in St. George
I did a little shopping at Tai Pan
and picked up this fabulous wired
spider web ribbon in burlap.

I also picked up these fun pleated
hanging doo dads and decided
they would make fun chargers
for a Halloween table.

The weathered wood table
just looks spooky with
a few fun Halloween items added
and I love how it all goes
with my French script 
love seats.

Rather than hang these from
the chandy, I decided to make them
the base of my placesettings.

I also picked up some new textured
plates while I was treasure hunting
Tai Pan.  

Fortunately I have some black goblets
there in the condo.  These were perfect
for a Halloween table.

This table is just so fun to set!

This urn somehow reminds me of
something that would have a brew
bubbling in it.

If I don't get started with
Halloween projects, they will never get done!

Hope you always enjoy your moments
here at Purple Chocolat Home
thanks for taking the time to visit!

I will be posting this 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. It just wouldn't be Halloween without your imaginative posts!

  2. Such a treat! Love the look and the filter you used. Great idea with the pleated fans. I wish I had that store here. Let the fun begin! P.S. I miss seeing you comment on my blog......

  3. Wow! what a treat! I love your table!

  4. As I type I can't even go there ..(In my mind..Halloween..) I did have cupcake toppers printed to make things for the boys..
    But geesh.. That's the end of the year for me..

    September..the first part of the end..then Halloween.

    Just perfect..
    Your joie de vivre and create around home and family and holidays and events.. is unparalled.

  5. A fun table and the spiderweb ribbon is perfect for the spooky settings.

  6. Lovin' the fun simple setting a muted colors of the pics:@)

  7. No one does Halloween as beautifully as you, Jacqueline! Your setting is gorgeous! I always look forward to your seasonal settings!

  8. WOW. Halloween can be tasty and elegant.
    You just need amazing pieces (PCH, check), an eye for details (Jacqueline, check) and a will to play when it strikes (PCH, check) ahahah
    It's amazing, Jacqueline. I swear you could give a 80 year old witch the Holly Golightly makeover with just handy items ahahah.
    It's too soon to Halloween. But never too soon to be inspired and enchanted by you.

  9. What fun! I don't even want to think about October 31st yet but I know it will be here before we know it.

  10. Boy, are you ahead of the game. Here I am trying to hang in to summer and you've moved on to Halloween! Fun doodads you found and they do add a touch of whimsy.

  11. As usual Jacqueline your tables are masterful and works of art I don't know what a Tai pai is presuming it is like a world market but Love the spider burlap ribbon wish I could find it here.Susie

  12. Love how modern and spooky this turned out!
