Wicked Fun: Halloween Tablescape Ideas

I decided to throw my witches hat into the Halloween tablescape ideas ring for the fabulously wicked fun of it.

A trick here and a tweak there got the Halloween creative spirits alive and kicking.

The big kids (family, crew  & neighbors) love it.

It’s a real hoot!


One can of black spray paint and several magnolia leaves and Poof!

I now have a pair of bat wings for the cupcake platter.

The Noritake plates and platter are part of my parents wedding china.

I thought I’d put a Billy Idol spin on things.



Get it?


The “poisoned” apple is an homage to my favorite fairy tale, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

My most memorable Halloween costume is the handmade Snow White full ensem my mother made for me.

There’s not one Halloween that goes by that I don’t think of that costume, or place a red apple on my Halloween table.


I promise you my kitchen curtains only look like bad car upholstery in this picture!


New kitchen paint color and the drapes are no more however, the deep crimson color the picture casts fits in with the theme.

The candelabra is a treasured find from an antique store in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Black Tulle fittingly adorns the candelabra for the thrill and spook of it.

We’ll count calories and walk an extra mile tomorrow.


I had way too much fun and way too much time on my hands while editing these pictures.

View at your own risk, and know that I promise to limit the special effects in the future.

It’s Halloween and I simply couldn’t resist.


Eerily gorgeous mood lighting.

Dave the Builder surprised me with white roses for my birthday a couple of weeks ago.

In their present state of wilted goodness, they have been repurposed as the perfect Halloween tablescape accessory.

Our Halloween pumpkin has its very own Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde thing going on.

It is an owl on one side, and a sour half moon eyeballing a sweet Halloween cat on the other.

It’s a mad, mad, mad, Mod Podge world.

I do love frogs, and this one has been in our family longer than I have.

A family friend purchased the frog in 1952 while in Tokyo, Japan as a gift for my maternal grandmother.

It’s so ugly that it’s absolutely beautiful.

  1. Wow! Love all the Halloween decor & wonderful tablescapes!!! 🙂 So much talent here in blog land for sure!!! Thank you kindly for hopping on over my page from My Romantic Home , and leaving a kind comment on my post! 🙂 Take care and have a wonderful weekend! 🙂


  2. So nice to hear from you, Jessie. I always loved finding vintage crystal knobs in old homes we would buy to flip. The crew would beg me to replace them and I would insist they stay. Most buyers would remark how their grandmother, aunt, etc… had these and how glad they were we left them. Vintage hardware adds such integrity to the look! I agree, the talent in blog land continues to amaze me! I would love for you to share at the First Tuesday link party here tomorrow. I’ll visit with you again soon.

  3. Spooky really does add to the fun of a Halloween tablescape. Love the link party & the talent of all the partygoers is amazing & my favorite- Inspiring! Thanks Sherry!
