Black and White Halloween Table

Hello sweet friends!

     The inspiration for my Halloween tablescape for 2015 is this very pretty cotton percale tablecloth draped all the way to the floor that my sweet mother just gifted me for my birthday this October 20th.

Since I do have two sets of black and white china I just mixed the two. The teacups don't belong to this set but have a lot of black, along with my pewter silver chargers.

Ok, here it is, see for yourselves.

                                      "HAPPY HOLLOWEEN DEAR FRIENDS!"

My inspiration for my Halloween table for 2015 is this black and white tablecloth my mom gifted me for my last birthday, on October 20th.

My choice for the place setting are my pewter silver chargers, Multiple Choice black and white dinner plates and salad plates and on top are my Halloween salad plates my DD Sofia brought me from Miami two years ago and finally a soup bowl with bat wings... to top it all, a very yaki black soup, lol... 

Love the black and white tablecloth my mom gave me.

Cute black teapot I bought for $3.28 last year.

A close up of the place layers

A witches hat as a centerpiece with little pumpkins and gourds around it...Oh! and a cute little ghost from my granddaughter Cayetana.


I didn't light the skull cause it makes a horrible noise and I can't stand it while shooting the pics! 

Silver and white decoration on the buffet.

A very 'mean' looking white pumpkin too.

In the English buffet I'm also displaying my new finds. A Cauldon, England pretty plate with a rose and a pretty platter Myott Son & Co., Shakespeare Land, England. I also found a pretty transfer ware soup plate, not displayed here. 

My transfer ware collection is growing, I'm so happy as I love it!

The teacups and saucers are from another Multiple Choice set of china.

The stems here are two red ones and two black with some 'red-blood wine'...go really well with the black soup.
I don't know if I should try it, though!

Who knows what disgusting tea is inside this black teapot...I rather not see!

OMG! What an ugly hairy black spider crawling on my buffet!!!

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments my friends, you always make my day.

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me join their great Halloween parties!

I also want to thank Kathryn from Make it Pretty Monday's great party for featuring my Fall dough bowl and for all your support and kindness.

Thanks Julie for featuring my Fall Harvest Soup at your awesome party, Cooking & Crafting with J & J.

Laurie Ritchey said...

Fabby, I don't know how you do it. That table is spooky AND elegant all at the same time. The beautiful tablecloth adds a lot to the elegance. Even with H'ween dessert plates, your plate stack looks elegant. You even have an elegant witch hat! You do have some big spiders though. You should call an exterminator right away!
