Halloween Costume Party Table

It's time to don your masks and come to our
Halloween Costume Party.  

We have been hosting an annual 
Halloween Party almost from the year
we were married (38 years!)  This table celebrates
a costume party, so get your mask and costume on 
and come on over to party.

I found these cute/spooky plates at Home Goods
this year, and felt they were perfect
for a costume party theme.

One of my favorite color combinations
for Halloween is purple and black,
and this sparkly purple pumpkin got
dressed up with a fancy purple and black
mask for the party.

I brought out my favorite purple stemware.  These
were purchased years and years ago through
Spiegel catalogue.  Mysteriously (guess that
fits right in with a Halloween party) two have
disappeared out of my twelve.  I have searched
for replacements, but to no avail!

The table linen is a sheer piece of spider web fabric.
Our favorite purple rats always are around
for Halloween parties.

Contrasting sheer spider napkins are perfect
for this table setting.  (I sewed these with
my serger a couple of years ago.)

A sparkly pumpkin fills this urn as the 
centerpiece to our table.  We made these
two years ago in our craft group.

Glittery pumpkins are everywhere.

This cleverly dressed skull was the other
plate option.  I can't decide which I like best.

Black flatware pieces were chosen for our
Costume Party table.  They are such
a great basic color for creating tablescapes.

It is so easy to create a fun Halloween
table just using a white stack of 
plates with the accent plate on top.

Add the Halloween flair and mystery with
fun plates, napkins and accessories.

If you can't make it to our costume party
(and costumes are definitely required) then
drop by
Purple Chocolat Home
for Trick or Treating.
It's a party here!

I will be posting 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. i love the skull with the crown! you set an amazing table.

  2. Speigel! Man, I had completely forgotten about that catalog!!! It was a HUGE staple back in the day, wasn't it? Wow...the things we forget about! I hope you're able to find replacements for your missing stemware. It's beautiful. The glitter pumpkins with the crowns really are eye-catching and work so well with the plates! I've deliberately stayed out of Home Goods the last few weeks for fear I'd see something I want. Sure enough...I would have scooped those plates up in a heartbeat! Beautifully crafted table! Fit for ghosts, goblins, witches, warlocks and gals who forgot Spiegel ever existed! :-)

  3. Those plates are wonderful. I love the skull with the crown. Your purple and black theme is amazing! Good old Spiegel. I miss that store. The spider material is perfect. You are so talented, a pleasure to attend your costume Halloween party.

  4. Stunning table, i am getting a serious crush on those wine glasses. I wish spiegal was still around, the memories I had in that store!
