Winnie the Witch is back!

Please gather round and join me for quick bite to eat!
Last year I featured Winnie Green at my Bewitching Gathering!  She's returned but was not pleased to find Charlie the raven helping himself to the corn that was being saved for the winter- 
 So like any good witch would do- she trapped him and put him under a cloche in the graveyard of skulls, pumpkins and rotting moss!  

His friend Eva can't figure out how to get him out of there!  She's been pecking at the glass for hours!
I think they both missed the graveyard warnings!

 Strange creatures will join you as you dine, but don't be alarmed...they won't bite... M U C H!!

Winnie loves green so the table has been set using these bright green chargers!

Eek!  I don't know about these creepy things crawling around!

Winnie may be a witch but she does love her pretty things...

Winnie adores such pretty shiny objects!

She peers down with pleasure! 

Quietly she hovers over the table-  I think she's really after Eva now!

Charlie wanted out real bad, but it's too late!  Winnie turned him into a piece of wood and poor Eva hasn't figured that out yet!  I think she better get out of there!

The first course will be Ghoulie Gourd soup!  She carved these out and filled them full and she says there is a special ingredient in them- something about toads???

Hmm.... this is scary!

Winnie added a special ingredient to the drinks too!  
Boy, I'm not sure about this now!! 

I wonder if this is a potion to put you under her spell?

Winnie loves this fancy tablecloth! It was specially woven for her by her arachnid friends!

Each plate has a picture of her former victims!
She does enjoy having fun!

The 2nd course tonight will be Ravenous Wraps
with spindly greens and a mystery meat!  Hmm...I wonder what that could be?

 Evening is near so come my pretties-
  Enjoy your meal!

  1. Ohhh I just love Winnie. Love your plates to Liz. Very cute table.

  2. What a creepy table!!! LOL Love it. The dishes are beautiful and Winnie is perfect overlooking the table!

  3. Liz, this post is so great. I love Winnie the Witch and those salad plates are the best! xo

  4. Liz, I LOVE this post. That Winnie the witch is adorable...but don't tell her I said so. Love how she's hanging in the chandelier. You have so many great details and tons of inspiration. Thanks.
    Now I want to go shopping for a witch. :)

  5. Oh, forgot to tell you I LOVE LOVE your header.

  6. Awesome table and Winnie the witch is doing a terrific job overseeing the table. Great story and the salad plates are wonderful.

  7. So Winnie is slipping people a roofie now, huh? What's up with that? She's an extra evil little thing! :-) Everything about this table is fabulous! I LOVE Winnie's perch on the light fixture above the table! Very unique!!! That is just about the coolest tablecloth, too! It's kind of Stevie Nicks meets The Wicked Witch of the West! :-) Your ribbon is gorgeous, and I love how you put it around the corn! It brings that orange color right down to the base of the table...perfect! I remember your plates, but they look different because of all the other great things staged along with them this year. That's the genius of creativity!!! Really like the subtle pattern in your stemware, too. It's perfect for this table! TEE-riffic, Liz!!!!!!!
