Happy Halloween

It's a HOT Halloween here in South Florida.   I was hoping for a little cooler weather, but the humidity is still high along with the temperatures.    I'm heading home to North Carolina for a week soon and I'm really looking forward to cooler Fall like weather. I only upacked about a quarter of my Halloween decorations.   It's just too darn hot to get in the Halloween mood.    
For several years I have been searching for Jack-O'Lantern plates here in So. FL.  Pottery Barn had these pretties on sale a couple weeks ago and I ordered six. 



I used MacKenzie Childs Courtly Check dinner plates under the jack o'lantern plates.  


The charger plates are from Dollar Tree several years ago.   I faux painted them to look like stone.  I wish they would bring these back in stock.  I would love to paint some with sugar skulls. 

I used a holiday tree from the Valerie Parr Hill collection at QVC in the center to hold my Halloween ornament collection.  

The napkins are from HomeGoods and in store now.  I used a mini skeleton from Dollar Tree as the napkin ring.  

Several years ago I collected large acorns on a visit home to NC to paint and use on my table.  

I made the skull wine charms a few years ago. 

The glasses are from Party City a few years ago. 

Overhead view of the table. 

The plate stack starts with a black and orange tablecloth in store now at HomeGoods.  The charger is from Dollar Tree and faux painted by me a few years ago.  The dinner plate is Courtly Check by MacKenzie Childs.   The top plate is from Pottery Barn this season.  


The lovey purple witch was a thrift store find. 

The spider web runner is from Stein Mart. 




Happy Halloween!

  1. I enjoyed your fun tablescape in orange and black. I particularly liked the skeletons that appeared tied to the napkins! Tickled my funny bone, so to speak!

  2. Wow this is amazing. I love the chargers- totally unique and the PB Jack-o-lantern plates look wonderful on the MC courtly check dishes. I like the extra Halloween deco with the witch and pumpkins. I love colorful and whimsical settings like this! I hope North Carolina offers some cooler temps for you!

    1. Thank you Christine. :) I wish Dollar Tree would offer those platters again. As soon as I figured out how to paint them they discontinue the item. I've searched high and low hoping someone else would stock them. Maybe one day they will return.

  5. I remember your skeleton chargers and wine charms, I think the stone look makes those chargers look much better. And I love the jack-o-lantern plates with the checked plates. You've set another great table. I hope you'll enjoy the NC weather, it has finally gotten a little cooler in N GA but the leaf color is WAY behind what it usually is in mid-October.

    1. Thank you so much Joy! I'm looking forward to my visit home to see my family and the cooler temps. I'm hoping the leaves will be at peak. I really miss the change of seasons living here in the tropics.
