Halloween Tablescape

Hi friends, 
I told you that I had a Halloween tablescape for you. We don't do a lot for Halloween.
I was taking pictures of my little Halloween tree and suddenly I was setting the table with black cats to match. 

Our black kitty is 14 so we could say that this was a birthday party tablescape for him. 

I've heard of people having parties for their pets.
Ringo, our cat was having none of it. To show his disdain he ate too much and threw up in the kitchen. 

I started with our black and white striped placemats. 
I stitched these up in a hurry last Christmas. They aren't perfect but I love them.
Black plastic chargers from Hobby Lobby were the next element. These were only $1.99 each.
Thrifted White Empress plates by Adams China were layered on next.
 I love having white plates because they go with everything. 
 We got some square black glass plates from Bill's mom. I know nothing about them and hadn't ever seen any like them before.
We have a collection of black and white mugs. I bought these for one of my boys for Christmas one year. When they ended up in my garage, I gained custody of them.

Orange twinkle lights became a table runner. A thrifted candelabra with orange tapers, primitive style black cats, orange striped pumpkins finish it off.

The ornament on the chandelier came from Hobby Lobby.
I repainted his face to make him a little cuter and augmented the ribbons to look more custom.

I found the jack o lantern candy dish years ago at the thrift store. He is one of my favorite Halloween decor items. He is filled with candy which is unfortunate for my  non existent waist line. 

The Dept. 56 Halloween house came from our Goodwill a few years ago. 

I makes noises in addition to lighting up.
There you have it.
Have a great day.
