Gather ’round and hear a tale
that started long ago on the Sleepy Hollow Trail..

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.

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.

    1. Thank you and you are welcome, Lee. Actually I did host a fall hop a few weeks ago, but I do love getting creative for Halloween. I hunted for my headless horseman on the internet and I know he comes in two sizes. I had hoped to find one of the larger ones, but settled for this guy when I found him for only $10! Is yours the larger size? Happy Halloween!
