Candy Corn Tablescape


Welcome to Centerpiece Wednesday, Tablescape Thursday and to Zoulah Boulah's Halloween Bash!  Zoulah has been all a fuss getting this Candy Corn Tablescape ready; it's her first and she wants to impress you.  She chose a candy corn theme because it is her favorite Halloween candy; candy corn also reminds her of witches' teeth.  Just don't tell her that, she might take it personal.


She wanted to share with you the individual placesetting.  This is Zoulah's take on the table:

1.  She chose white square plates, round salad plates, and white napkin rings; they reminded her of the tip or top of the candy corn.

2.  She chose orange plastic plates, bowls, and goblets because they reminded her of the orange center of candy corns.

3.  She chose a yellow napkin to bring in the yellow bottom of candy corns. 

4.  She also paired the yellow napkin ring with a candy corn bandana to pull all the colors together.  Zoulah likes being color coordinated.


In Zoulah's opinion, the highlight of the table is the candy corn spheres.  She had a lot of fun making them; she will post about them later.  Zoulah, loves to display candy at Halloween, but she does not like it when the candy bowls are emptied by Joni's family.  She thinks candy is a great decoration and should be seen and not eaten.  She figured hot gluing the candy to the spheres, MIGHT prevent everyone from eating the candy corn; you never know about that Red Couch family.


She also put candy corn in a large glass vase; however the candy corn is not glued down.  She will be keeping her witchy eyes on it.  She will be especially watching Tati, Polka Dot Pantry Sweets, who kept on eating candy corn while Zoulah was making the candy corn spheres and saying, "I don't know why I am eating this, it doesn't taste good."  Yeah, right!  Here's an overhead shot. 


Zoulah, found some yummy candy corn kisses for her table.  She is blowing a sticky, candy kiss your way, so please take one.


What would a candy corn table be without candy corn cookies -- Zoulah couldn't imagine -- so she tied on her apron, Halloween-themed, of course, and baked up a storm.  There they are in the candy corn dish.  She wants you to take a few on your way out.  She promises to post the recipe and instructions later. 


Zoulah reminds you that she is guest hosting while Joni sits on her duff takes a break from blogging from now until Halloween.

 Zoulah says, "I have lots of tricks and treats up my sleeve to share with your readers.


Zoulah thanks you for dropping by and reminds you to take a look at all the other Centerpieces at Centerpiece Wednesday and Tablescapes at Tablescape Thursday.

Joni, I can't wait to read about how to make those candy corn topiaries! They look amazing -- and labor-intensive! I love all things candy corn, so this table was a delight to explore.

Wow! Love the spheres!

Carol said...

Oh, Zoulah. I agree that the candy corn spheres are the highlight of the table, but I do love candy corn, and hot gluing them to a centerpiece may not prevent me from snapping a few off to eat.....

Judy said...

I love this whole table and can't WAIT to tell my husband about it. He has been teasing me that we need to do a candy corn table. (Because it's his favorite candy). This is just darling and creative and brought to the smallest detail. I really love it!

Lydia's show and tell today had to do with the letter C and she is bringing. . .candy corn!
Unfortunately, mom ate all that we had in the house. So, she sent dad out on a late night run to find more!

LOVE CANDY CORN!

What an amazing candy corn display -- those topiaries are truly creative! So how many candy corns does it take to make a "corn ball"?

Kathleen said...

That is so cute! Love the topiaries. I do a candy corn table too...coming soon! Yours is so glam!
