Halloween 2016 - Dinner at the Haunted Mansion ~ ~ The Table Setting

It's that time of year again! Halloween Season is upon us and there are ghosts and goblins galore. Last year, if you remember, we had "An Evening with Edgar" and there were ravens, a meal based on the author's works, a decidedly creepy atmosphere.

This year, I chose "Dinner at the Haunted Mansion" as my theme. Elegantly spooky is the name of the game for this dinner party. Be on the lookout for some of my best silver serving pieces making an appearance when the food photos are posted!

But for now, here's an early sneak peak of the table and sideboard.

Black table linens, sparkly crystal, and white dinnerware pair together exactly how I had visualized.





The ravens made another appearance.  I wonder who will wear those masks?


Oh, there's The Birds again...



Would anyone like to have a pet rat?


A cloche of skulls perhaps??


A dear friend made these special Halloween decorations.  Thanks, Marian!



And now to the "bar" area on the sideboard filled with kitschy items from the Dollar Store and Old Time Pottery. The large bottles are filled with water colored with food coloring mixed and matched to get the perfect shade. The candles are all battery powered.
