Ghoulish Dining!

Early in the day the table was set.  Winnie Green the witch dropped back in to make sure everything was just the way she wanted!

She cast her magic out over the table like a lasso.  Soon a soft glow of light began where the wine is cooling

 Black cat masks are included so everyone can be in
the right spirit! 

The layers began with silky pumpkin placemats...
Winnie's favorite green chargers make the perfect backdrop for the black and white dinner plates and the spiders are keeping things stylishly creepy!

These crows are partying dudes!  They've 
brought along buckets of hocus pocus to 
keep things fun!

Only the best ghouls are invited!

Donning their party hats and all aglow
for the evening's fun!

 The wine has been chillin' for hours!
 Winnie's light show creates just the right ambiance....don't you agree??

 Candles are lit! 
Time to dig in!

We're having Graveyard Goulash!!

And some spiced red wine!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. How gorgeous, you're tablescape is so eeky, but elegant too!! I don't mind having dinner, goulash, that is, in your grave yard table setting, lol..With my best friend in school we used to go to a pretty near by graveyard and have a sandwich, we thought it was such brave thing we did, but really, we weren't scared at all! SO..I don't mind your table..hehehehe
    Big hugs,

  2. Wow, what a great job you did on your ghoulish table. The masks are the perfect touch for each guest. I love your main course, too. Your guests will have a fabulous time!

  3. I'm in love!!! I am really love the orange glitter garland stuff! You could do do much with it! Thanks for letting us know Pier one is 50% off now. I must go check them out!

  4. Really cute! I love the purple in this tablescape!

  5. What a bewitching table! I love the cat masks and accents of purple at your table! Winnie's glittery light show is spooktacular :)

  6. And what time shall I be there? I would be happy to bring some Fine Wine! :)

  7. Wow, everything looks ready for Halloween :) I love the black spider-web tablecloth.


  8. Wow, you successfully made Halloween elegant -- who knew that was even possible.....!

  9. Seriously, you've out done yourself Liz! LOVE the table topper!

  10. Oh wow....great tablescape! Love the green witch, the tablecloth, the black cat masks! Thanks for sharing...hope your ghouls had a great time. Visiting from Between Naps on the Porch.

  11. Liz, this is amazing! I love the colors, the tablecloth...really everything! I'd love to share it with my readers next Wednesday if that's okay. What a wonderful Halloween setting!

  12. DANG, girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DANG!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is so cool! I love the light Winnie is throwing down from her light fixture perch. Very creative idea! That's one of the coolest things I've seen in awhile! I love the mix of colors with the bright green charger leading the pack. I haven't been in a Pier 1 in awhile (trying to suppress that urge to shop and spend!), so I completely missed those napkin rings. They are really, really cool! All the colors in them give you lots of choices! I like the black cat masks, too! This is terrific!!!

  13. Fabulous table, Liz! Love the spiderweb table topper...but the witch is my favorite.

  14. I'm stopping by for a blog visit from Between Naps on the Porch today. I'm a urge fan of her tablescapes.
    Autumn is my favorite time of year. The colors and textures that you chose are so beautiful.
    The witch is my favorite touch.

  15. Absolutely an amazing Halloween table. The detail is perfection and the layers of the tablecloth is a great background. Winnie's story is great and I love her perched in the chandelier. Very creative!

    Thanks, Pam

  32. I just love this! I don't know what is my favorite part, the little masks on the place setting or the whole Winnie the Witch on the light fixture with her "spells" going down to the table. That's just about as creative as anything I've ever seen.

    I really, really love it!

    I'm so glad I finally had a few minutes this morning to visit.

Welcome to Home and Gardening With Liz. I have combined my previous blogs “Infuse With Liz” and “Sit With Me In My Garden” into this new blog. I love interior decorating and gardening. I enjoy redefining interior spaces by moving things around and reusing decorative items already found in the home. I also enjoy creating tablescapes and an occasional crafting project. I'm so pleased you've stopped by. I invite you to follow me and I do hope you will keep coming back! Liz
