Zoulah's Pet Spider Table


Zoulah gives you a warm witchy welcome to her Spider Tablescape!

She and her pet spider LEGGS got together and put this table together.  We are in luck because LEGGS her pet spider is usually rather reclusive and hard to photograph.



Purple is one of Zoulah's favorite colors -- she just loves the purple and black combination.



The spiderweb "shawl" was found at Michael's this year.  When Zoulah returned to buy another, they were all gone.  Zoulah cried her witchie tears!

Zoulah clicked her witchie shoes together with delight when she found these felt spider webs at the Dollar Store. Like most witches, Zoulah loves a bargain.




Zoulah loves drinking potions out of these "spidey glasses."


A couple friends of Leggs who are more friendly and more photogenic joined us at the table.

Zoulah had to put her touch on the table with her With's Brew "Feetie" Bowl -- there is a spider and web on the side.



How about some little spider breads for dinner?


The Spider Bread on the table.



For dessert, take your pick!  Zoulah has been such a busy witch in her "Bewitchen Kitchen" cooking up some magical treats.

So cute...love this theme..and the bread, dishes, darling! I put out all my Halloween today, so fun. ;D

Jacqueline said...

Tell Zoulah, although she probably already knows, that I love purple too. I adore her bandana napkins and just have to get some. Leggs is kind of freaky creepy, just perfect for Halloween. the spider bread is wonderful. I love the web fabric too. I have some, but it is getting a little tired! Happy Halloween table.

Fun table Joni, lovin' the black and purple! The witches brew cauldron is too cute-enjoy:@)

Debbie said...

That Zoulah is one talented witch! I love the purple and black Halloween table she conjured up. (I do believe she and Leggs make a really good team.) The spider glasses are probably my favorite part of the setting.

I hope she shares her technique for the spider bread!

Love all your spidery touches on your table~ Zoolah's bread is too clever! I'm enjoying the witch sisters in action~ they are quite the culinary experts in the kitchen :)

OK....you and Jacqueline are starting to scare me. You are WAY too into this whole Halloween thing! :-) It's great!!! You guys have such an imagination and are able to translate that into fun tables and decor. The spider breads are really, really cool!!!!! I have no little ones at home, and my husband wolfs his food down while he's at the clinic without even looking at it...so it would be a wasted effort here. Glad you're getting some good mileage out of it, because it is a super cute idea!

Great table. I got the spider web placemats in black. I haven't used them yet. I love what you can get at the dollar stores if you really shop them.Love those spider web glasses.

Sue said...

Adorable! Love the black and purple together~it looks spooky, but pretty:) Did you make the bread with frozen bread dough? I'm going to "pin it"! I need to find that web at the dollar store too, Joni.

Sue said...

P.S. I found the original bread post and pinned it:)

Tess said...

Love Zoulah's color choices...she is quite the hostess! The table is adorable!

Spiders on the table
Spiders on the wall
Spiders, spiders everywhere
They sure make my skin crawl!

Maybe they could find a DENTIST at the dollar tree, cheap!


Love the table! Yes, The Tablescaper emailed me from the $ Tree asking if I wanted those mats! I resisted as I can't remember what's in my bins! I haven't hauled them out yet, except for my witches who scratched and clawed their way out! :)
