There's a New Witch in Town Tablescape

You can tell it is that time of year when
the weather starts to cool down, at least
at night, and you start to hear 
Strange and Loud noises 
coming from the Halloween storage area
with Beaulah waking up out of a long sleep,
and wanting to get out of her box and
come up and play.

Is she ready to play?!!
She flew right up onto the table and helped set
it, to welcome our new witch that has come
to join all our other fine ladies.

Our new witchy friend is tall and elegant and so refined
and Beaulah and I decided to set a gorgeous
table just for her.

We decided to welcome her outside, but I think
the witches in the clouds must have been jealous
because thunder was rolling and winds were
kicking up, and we were getting a little worried about the weather.

Despite the broomsticks crashing overhead, we were able
to finish setting the table without any problems.

Our table matches our new witchy friend with
creams and taupes and blacks.
I found these new chevron burlap placemats 
at Target in the $1-$3 section.  We love them
topping my burlap tablecloths.

We chose my taupe textured plates in two sizes for
our plate stack and topped it with a darling
burlap wrapped votive - also from Target's $3 section.

(You know we were having fun at Target!)

A little webby fabric also tops the table, leading
up to a cute spider on the burlap wrapped votive.

I made these fancy spider napkins last year, just by serging the 
edges of some sheer fabric.  Beaulah and I both chose
the black flatware from Horchow.

These taupe goblets from Cabo were paired with
tall black goblets.

As the guest of honor, our newest friend
sits inside a grapevine wreath with a burlap
bow, also adorned by spiders.

She already feels at home, and we love having
her move in to
Purple Chocolat Home.

She was a gift from my friends Rachel and 
Stephanie, from Gatehouse 1.

Glad you could drop by before the clouds burst and
the rain came pouring down!  

Just the kind of weather most of my witchy friends adore!

Sure hope Zoulah at Red Couch Recipes
will come out to play this season.  She had
a big move to Spokane.  Even though the
sisters had to move apart, they still love to
play together.

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.
