Halloween Tablescape and More!
Gather ’round and hear a tale
that started long ago on the Sleepy Hollow Trail..
When the air is filled with the chill of fall,
he rides the night through the foggy pall.
With glowing pumpkin raised on high, through woods and thickets he seems to fly. So don’t be caught on a Halloween night or the horseman will give you a terrible fright!
I took Dollar Tree jack o’lanterns and painted them with a flat black paint. One topped each place setting.
Tiny battery operated lights gave a glow to gray tulle I arranged loosely down the center of the table to suggest the fog my headless horseman was riding through.
It kind of looks like the horseman left a spooky jack o lantern at each plate, doesn’t it?
The fun really begins when I turn on the lights in each of the jack o lanterns! Look out! The horseman is coming!
Spiderweb placemats were set beneath black pierced edge chargers, each topped with a gray dinner plate and a silvery salad plate. Napkin rings were very simple for me, just black on black ribbon tied neatly around white rolled napkins.
Gray crystal wine glasses and silver water goblets, left unpolished for this table were the stemware.
Two black trees from Target’s Bullseye’s Playground were a bargain at $3 each! Let’s hope they don’t snag the horseman’s head as he gallops through the trees!
Bottles painted with flat black paint hold candles for additional atmosphere.
Don’t be caught on a lonely road come Halloween night…BOO!
