    Haunted Mansion Tablescape

    Haunted Mansion Tablescape

    Did you get to see my Halloween tablescape?  If you took the tour of all of the Halloween tables shared by the other bloggers, you saw my friend, Ann’s Colonel Mustard in the Dining Room table.  If you missed it, you really need to take a look, it is fantastic!

    As happens, this table inspired me!  I put a little different twist on it.  Living here in the shadow of Walt Disney World, you must know that I am a Disney fan.  One of my favorite attractions is The Haunted Mansion.  When I went on line searching for those fantastic plates that Ann used I happened upon these Haunted Mansion floor plan dinner plates!  Like that, an idea was born, and my Haunted Mansion tablescape came into being!  A variety of candle holders were given a paint job, transforming them from weathered white to worn gray and black. 

    I had seen these table linens before, but never had the need for them.  This table runner is similar to the Haunted Mansion wallpaper.  This would set the scene for my tablescape. These dishes were found at Your WDW Store.  I think I got the last set of salad plates they had at the time.  You can always search for these on eBay or Mercari.  My plate stack included Fiesta dinner plates in mulberry and decorative black chargers

    Master Gracey was a wealthy man who was a prominent member of the family which owned the Haunted Mansion.   At Walt Disney World the home is located in New York, and in New Orleans in Disneyland.

    Napkins are a simple selection of layered plum and black napkins tied with a black ribbon.  The flatware I selected is Treble Clef flatware.  

    There are a number of different stories about the bride and the different masters of the Haunted Mansions, but in my fantasy, the bride does some killing with an axe.  My axe has only chopped wood over the years…many, many years.  This was my grandfather’s axe. 

    Perhaps the bride hid the axe among her wedding bouquet. 

    Is that a single red rose in the bride’s bouquet or is it a touch of blood…?
