Halloween Tablescape

Halloween Tablescape

YES!! Halloween!!  I love this holiday!  I think it is because it is just plain fun.  Ideas galore, yummy treats and especially its a chance to dress up and be something your really not!  We can easily incorporate a bit of goolish fun in amongst our fave fall decor!  I used paper for the backdrop (love the versatility of paper) I even stuffed the glass jar with paper.  A velvet pumpkin from a darling shop on Orcas Island called the “BIRD NEST”.  You have to have a few extra eyeballs hangin around so these here I made from Michaels styrafoam balls and a package of plastic eyes. Feathers add a touch of whimsy and a few candles and a spooky scape is created.

Hangin Out for a Scare

Hangin Out for a Scare

These spooky ghosts  are hanging from ribbon and are white gift bags turned upside down with the handles cut off and acrylic painted faces.  I have them in my dining room window, looking out to scare the next trick-or treater.  GOOlish delights!  Spooktacular idea!!!  Have fun! Be safe! Happy Halloween! Don’t eat all the kids candy!

It’s Fall Again!

Written by , Posted in Table-Scapes

It's Fall Again 2

Fall is here!!!! Expressing itself through all the wonders of nature, from the beautiful foliage and crackling leaves, wind blowing and pumpkin patches inviting visitors.  I get excited for fall, it is my favorite season of all.  I get fall “fever” where some people get “spring fever”.   This is a wonderful time to come inside and create an ambiance in your home that speaks beautiful fall.

A table scape is a great place in the home to start with fall decorating.  In this scape I have utilized artificial accessories to create the collection of items that speak to fall.  One of my new found items is to utilize paper from Papyrus as the backdrop and color inspiration for the scape.

Its Fall Again

Birds are a great addition to any scape and the rustic iron birds here are no exception.  They affirm an element of fall, a different texture but still staying in the color aspect of the table scape.  It is always exciting to add a bit of sparkle to the table fare.  Here I have added a cute little sparkle pumpkin that adds just the right touch to the fall expression.
