Tablescape Thursday: Halloween Table No.1

 It's been ages since I had a chance to think about and put together a tablescape for Tablescape Thurday...but this week I actually had two tables I was playing around with!
I'll be joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to check out all the other awesome tables for this week.

  Both tables that I did have a Halloween motif but are very different. This is Table No.1. I set it up in the kitchen at the breakfast table:

The spiderweb tablecloth I bought last year on clearance after Halloween at Home Goods.

A silver coffee pot, muffineer and an orange sugar and creamer set at the center of the table, with the centerpiece slightly behind.

The witch's shoes are salt and pepper shakers; they are Fritz & Floyd and were a gift some years ago.

These are the placemats. These were also a gift.

I've decided to use my blue transferware with some orange plates in the plate stack.

The orange plates are shiny glazed on the top:

On the underside, they have this curious ribbed texture. These were a birthday gift from my mother-in-law (along with the orange creamer and sugar set and some other things). I'm sure she found these at antique store somewhere. I love how they look with my blue transferware!

An egg cup is a handy place to hold some little fake pumpkins!

This is a breakfast setting (as evidenced by the egg cups and silver coffee pot), but I realized later that I forgot to put the coffee cups on the table!!! ACK! I do have some black coffee cups that would have looked perfect on this table.

Fancy glasses aren't just for wine! I like to use mine for juice or water as well!

Next week I'll be showing Table No.2 !
Thanks for stopping by!

Cute! Those witch's shoes are adorable! I think they help to pull the blue family together nicely with the orange and black.

Love your table, the blue/orange combo, one of my favorites, looks great with black table linens.
