Today I set a table (giving Zoulah a break) featuring Zoulah and her witchey friends. There is just something about cute little witches at Halloween. Some of them have been our friends for many years, made by my sister-in-law Camille, and others are newer additions. They all give you a warm welcome to sit at the table.
Usually at this point, I would show you the place setting, but I am showing you the witch vase which Beaulah, Zoulah's twin sister, gave to her this year. Now, of course you know that Beaulah is the kitchen witch of Jacqueline. I don't know what I did in the former life to deserve such a wonderful sister.
I also was blessed with another wonderful sister, Jean. She was the one who gave Jaqueline and I Zoulah and Beaulah.
The black and white pattern on the witch shoe reminds me of Debbie, Mountain Breaths and of Sarah, Hyacinths for the Soul.
Now who would think of a witch shoe vase?
Just a close-up of a flower.
So I put the question to you all. "Have you been a good witch or a bad witch?" All of my witches responded that they have been good witches. I agree. Hopefully, my children don't even think of me as a witch :).
Although not at the table this year, Witchie-Poo chimed in that she has also been a good witch. Jaqueline and I made these witches years ago at a class. A life-sized witch, Witchie-Poo always graces our living room during Halloween. She is getting old and a little broken down, but we still love her.
So here is the place setting. I bought the orange dinner plates and black salad plates at Tai-Pan Trading this year, and they have been used a lot. The little square bakers were bought a couple of years ago at Michael's. I think they still sell them.
I have three different varieties of the bakers.
The pumpkin one....I also have some Harlequin ones.
The hobnail gpblets were from K-Mart last year. I love them and use them all the time.
The orange goblets remind me of the Cozy Cone Motel at Cars Land at California Adventure. Yes they do!
Each guest will have some gumdrops at their place setting. Have some. I won't tell. The guests aren't here yet. These are just two cupcake liners put together.
I like having candy like gumdrops and candy corn cheering up my home at Halloween-- candy my children won't eat.
I am showing off my new glittery Halloween sign. I bought it at Gardner Village which is infested with witches during the Halloween season. We have been going there in October for many, many years. My kids are no longer young and we all still enjoy going. This year we took my daughter's friend Carla; she had never been there before and loved it.
Just showing off a few more accents on the table. This is a Dollar Store sign.
I was going to tell you where I bought this sign, but, ha ha, I do not remember. In my younger years I could tell you where I bought something and how much it cost many years after the purchase. Now...
Just a full shot view of the table. I do want to thank you for visiting my "The Witch is In Tablescape." I enjoy your visits.
