FABBY: Lugubrious Tablescape

Hello sweet friends!
 
I'm re-posting my tablescape for Halloween from 2011, as I am going to be at home this Monday, to make my new tablescape. Currently we are visiting our two girls, taking advantage of the town's holidays and the g'girls are off from school for a week.  Here goes..you might not even remember it!

We finally finished painting the dining room, living room, den, or family room and foyer, therefore, after cleaning like there was no tomorrow after the paint job, yesterday the people from Hunter Douglas came to do the installation of the window treatment, so I started cleaning after they left once again...I am exhausted!!  Alright, everything looks great, clean fresh and with a nice touch of modernity.  

I will post the before and after on Met.M.    Meanwhile I wanted to start my clean and neat house with what I love to do best which is tablescaping with one that I call "lugubrious" caz it is!!...  see for yourselves!, lol   

I want to thank you wonderful friends in advance for your lovely and so very appreciated visits. 

I'd also want to thank the gracious ladies that host such terrific and fun parties every week, hope you join too so we can have a blast!  Happy Halloween and lots of hugs.       


Here is my tablescape with some delish and yummy food all over and some adorable little greeters you might want as pets for Halloween!

Just a totally yummy with mud and snakes!  You crush some Oreo cookies with a rolling pin and add some jelly snakes and taraaa!



Would you like some blood and spider wine?!

 


I think my cleaning is not over yet!  I think I have to clean all the spider web that's been happening around here!!

Hello Fabby,
This is a fun tablescape - full of atmosphere - especially in that lighting! I know those kind of days when a storm just pops up! I just love thunderstorms!
It sounds like you've had quite the busy time - I hope you have a wonderful weekend,

Alycia Nichols said...

I'm just going to come right out and say it...I had to Google the word "lugubrious" because I had NO idea what it meant!!! Now I do. Thank you for expaning my vocabulary! :-) Great table, Fabby, and that was very clever to use the black poncho for the table covering!!! This has a great Halloween vibe to it!!!

Kathleen said...

What a fun Halloween table. Glad all the painting is done!
I don't think you table is sad and dismal at all! I had to look up that word, LOL! :)

Farah Muzaffar said...

Oh Fabby what a creative tablescape it is... everything is so perfect and scary ... details are worthy to praise ...
I don't know much about the customs of Halloween but it looks so perfect I am sure

lulumusing said...

I never thought of a table being lugubrious, but I will now. You've given the word new meaning!

Honey at 2805 said...

Your lugubrious Halloween table is spooktacular! It's imaginative and creative, and all the while it is still elegant!

What a fun tablescape, Fabby--I would love to eat a lugubrious dinner in that setting! I love your black and orange plates, and the rose bouquets are the perfect color to complement everything.

Fabby, I bet those girls of yours just adored this table. Kids seem to delight in creepy things so I bet the gummy worms were a hit. Love all the orange and black. I'm looking forward to seeing your next tablescape!

Well this is new to me so thank you for re-posting it. It looks like a lot of creepy fun would be had by all.

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

Hello, Dear Fabby! I just love your highly contrasted table--the bold black and bold orange are great! Can't wait to see the "After"--I'm sure it'll be wonderful, and now that you're done with all the cleaning you'll be able to sit back and enjoy it. Hugs to you, Fabby. ~Zuni

Mary said...
