Creepy Elegance for Halloween!

Only a few more days until Halloween! I have moved aside my warm, inviting Autumn colors (CLICK HERE FOR WARM AND INVITING) for creepy ones this week!

On top of the white tablecloth I added a black lace runner featuring a spiderweb pattern. I added purple placemats and orange napkins with red napkin rings for pops of seasonal color. And of course, I added purple, orange and red acrylic "jewels" on the runner.

For my centerpiece, I added a a white pumpkin on a cake plate on top of a small mirror. And I put orange candles to my candleabras. I only had 4 glittery orange candles and two regular orange, so the candles in the middle are a different orange!

A few more ghoulish touches - a spiderweb serving plate with skelton hand servers and the goblets are from Walgreens and have a jeweled spider.

I used black, jeweled chargers and white dinner plates topped with black and silver paper salad plates featuring a skull.
And when asked to pass the salt or pepper....

Here's hoping you have lots of treats and no tricks this week! I will be sharing with Between Naps on the Porch and Rustic & Refined

Autumn Update

Well, this has been a very wet fall so far in my part of NC! But luckily, we didn't float away and the sun is now shining and the sky is a bright Carolina Blue! 

I was able to do some Autumn decorating even in the rain. Here is the arrangement in my epergne in my foyer.

I also changed out my ferns on the front porch for some pumpkin stacks! I loved how they turned out!

I didn't set a whole new table this week. I just used my last tablescape (CLICK HERE) and added some corn pillar candles and some pumpkin salad plates on top of the Spode Woodland dinner plates.

That's my latest Autumn Update! I will be posting on Between Naps on the Porch and Rustic and Refined.

Pumpkins and Pheasants

Well, the weather here is dreary, so I need a pretty table full of fall goodies to brighten things up! What are a few of my favorite Fall things? Pumpkins and Pheasants!

I started with an Ivory tablecloth and gold chargers. I added a runner full of appliqued pumpkins from Big Lots that I bought a few years ago.

I used my Spode Woodland Pheasant plates, green goblets (from Target several years back) and dark gold napkins with a pumpkin napkin ring and pumpkin place card holders (also from Target in years past).

For my centerpiece, I used a beaded placemat (TJ Maxx) with a ceramic pumpkin elevated on a small glass cake stand.

Of course, I scattered a few autumnal colored acrylic jewels around the centerpiece!

On my mantle, I have pumpkins and turkeys (not pheasants), but it's all autumnal!

On a side note, I go this teapot and creamer a few years ago at TJ Maxx. There was no sugar bowl, but I figured I could find one some day. Well, it took a few years, but one finally popped up on eBay a few weeks ago!!! Pepper Tree Tea Wares is the only marking on the bottom. I love the Fally look of this tea set!
