Sunday Favorites

Align LeftBoo! and Happy Halloween!!

Today is Halloween and I'm joining Chari's Sunday Favorites! Click here for more Sunday Favorites. Thanks for hosting, Chari!

This is what I posted two years ago on Halloween (2008)

First I want you to meet “Kandace Corn!” Isn’t she cute?
She makes me smile each
time I look at her! I love her little candy corn dress.

I don't like witches, but this Mary Englebreit picture was in her magazine last year. I like what it says, "If the hat fits, wear it!" The ceramic boot came from Hobby Lobby, the little candy corn hanging on the tip is moveable.
This cute purple polka dot black cat also came from Hobby Lobby. The little jack-o-lantern handing on his neck is also moveable. The "Boo" came from Cracker Barrel.

This Halloween display is on top of the small curio cabinet.

I found the cardboard candy corn "food carry-out container"
at Michael's and made a centerpiece with it.

This cute little Jack-o-lantern is just a painted tin can. I bought it at a craft fair year's ago.

Little white bear has a Halloween costume, a Jack-o-lantern costume sweater!

Thank you for your interest, it is so appreciated. Please leave a comment, and please do return soon! Have fun!

Here's your "Treat!"

Candy Pumpkins, or....
Or candy corn?

Happy Halloween!

Kandace Korn!


Tablescape Thursday

I'm doing an encore tablescape from last year. I used some of my small collection of Halloween things as the centerpiece. You saw some of these in Tuesday's Table Top, now you can see how it looks as a centerpiece.

This Halloween themed tablescape is for this week's Tablescape Thursday! Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting each week. Go here for lots more inspiration.

Inspiration for this tablescape started with this cute purple polka dotted black cat:

I used purple fabric for the table cover. The little green stool was a dollar at Target a few months ago. Some of this vignette was displayed on a curio cabinet in the dining room. I decided to use it for this tablescape. I didn't have to buy a thing for this TT, everything was already here!

Kooky colors can be used together for Halloween, right? I used the black chargers, with green petal dessert plates, then the square pumpkin colored plates on top (they never photograph true in color, they are more orange than yellow.)
In keeping with the kooky colors the orange and black gingham napkins again add that element of surprise!
The centerpiece:

The Jack-o-lantern is made of paper mache, I've had it many years. The "Boo" was purchased from Cracker Barrel a year (or two) ago. The cat and witch's boot is from Hobby Lobby, about two years ago. The Mary Englebreit print was in her magazine a few years ago, I framed it for safe keeping. The big candy corn pieces are glass, I bought those several years ago too.

The little candy corn cups are from Walgreen's. They are filled with real candy corn! My Creative Memories group enjoyed those last night at our workshop here!

I tried the flash and no flash trying to get true colors of the purple and the pumpkin colors.
Different angles:

I hope you enjoyed my kooky Halloween tablescape!
Trick or Treat!!

I actually had another tablescape to share today, but decided to do this Halloween one instead since Halloween is this weekend. I hope you enjoyed it!

Have a happy Halloween!

God Bless.



Table Top Tuesday

Time for Marty's Tabletop Tuesday! Thanks, Marty for hosting so we can create vignettes to share with our blogger friends.

Today I'm sharing the vignette I moved from the hall tree in the foyer (see banner at top) to the top of the curio cabinet in the dining room.
I wanted to use all my cute little Halloween decorations together and they don't all fit together on the hall tree.

From left to right:
All three items came from Hobby Lobby a few years ago.

I love this purple polka dot black cat:
See the little jack-o-lantern hanging around his neck!

Isn't this a cute witch's shoe? Notice the little candy corn dangling from toe, and the candy corn heel!

In the middle:
The Halloween paper bag and the little black cat are new this year!

Isn't she adorable!

I fell in love with this darling little guy dressed as a black cat!
The candy corn hanging from the stick is so cute!

On the right:
I love vintage look decorations and will buy them when they are this cute!

This cute Mary Englebreit witch was in her magazine, I framed it a few years ago.

I love what it says:

I hope you like seeing another place I've displayed my Halloween cuties!

Elegant Halloween

I'm joining The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sundays today. Thanks, for hosting, this fun event! Click here for lots more fun!

This tablescape was first posted last year on October 21, 2009. I call this my Elegant Halloween tablescape.

Tablescape Thursday is always a fun day, to create, and especially to view what everybody else shares with us. Thanks, Susan, for hosting for us! Go here for lots of inspiration.

Today I have an elegant Halloween tablescape. My plan was to have tall orange taper candles, but could only find two! We found lots of burnt orange and gold, but I wanted the bright orange! I finally had to settle on these orange voltives.

I wanted to use my fine crystal dishes and glasses all purchased for one dollar each at Dollar Tree! This is a very inexpensive tablescape, the black table cover is just black fabric I had in the attic!

The napkins are made from fabric I purchased for eighty cents last year after Halloween. I tried three different napkin designs before I settled on this. First, I used black fabric napkins with the gingham, then I used some sheer white napkins with the gingham. I felt the gingham alone looks better. Gingham isn't usually considered elegant, but I wanted an element of surprise!

To add more orange I placed orange candy pumpkins in the dessert dishes and crushed orange drink in the glasses!

Do you like pumpkin candy?

The centerpiece has six candlesticks, four designs. Faux bittersweet vines are interspersed among the candlesticks. I've had this vine for several years.

I used two sets of candles, but the others are singles.

Let's light the candles:

Halloween night the candles should be lit!
Do you like it better with the candles lit....

Have a happy day!
God Bless.
