The Cats Take the Hat Halloween Tablescape

Zoulah welcomes all you Halloween lovers to her "Cats Take the Hat Tablescape."  She wants to point your attention to the cat with the hat, who very much looks like our Wolfay, on the couch with the hat in my blog header.  Thanks to Linda for the Halloween header -- just like magic my header appeared for Halloween.  She is a wonderful Blog Fairy.

In our home, cats really do  "Take the Hat!"  We have been the home of many strays over the years, and we are down to just one cat, named Wolfay.  We had a health scare with him this year, but he survived, for which we are grateful.

Just a little detail of the hat that Zoulah bought last year.  "Candlesticks make excellent witch hat holders, says Zoulah.

Flanking the end of the table are Zoulah's cats Frick and Frack.

To start the tablesetting, Zoulah used these darling cat placemats.

Then she placed an orange dinner plate and a black salad plate, both of which she bought at Tai Pan Trading for a dollar or under.

The little rectangle bakers are great for soup or individual meat loaves, or CANDY!  These little bakers were bought at Michael's a few years ago.

Each place setting gets two glasses.  I love the contrasting colors.

The pumpkin napkin holders were bought several years ago at Wal-Mart.

Just another happy view.

Zoulah wants to let you in on a "leetle" secret!  Yes she does.  The tablecloth is actually a former curtain, washed of course, but it makes a great tablecloth.

Just another couple shots of the cats standing guard.

A few more touches to the table -- little votive holders and the sparkly orange and black garland.

Every table needs a little bling.

Here is a sampling of Zoulah's work through the seven years she has been casting magic in her Bewitchen Kitchen.

This is Zoulah's latest creation -- Spiced Up Halloween S'mores Bars.

Zoulah loved having you here, she is glad to take over for a little bit, because the owner
of this blog hasn't been doing her job lately!  Come back later for Halloween fun!

Oh Joni dear, this is so cute and colorful. Love those pretty goblets, orange and black. I keep hearing about the Tai Pan store. The hat looks fabulous on the candlestick. Very cute placemats as well. Gotta love the cats and your sweet Wolfay is darling and does look similar to the cat in the header. Thank you for sharing this special tablescape at the Halloween Tablescape Link Party.

I always love to see what the witch sisters, Zoulah and Beaulah are up to in the kitchen and at the table! I love orange tabbys, they have the best personalities and glad yours is well and enjoying some hat time :) Love your festive orange and black layers and candlestick tip for a pedestal!

Somehow the name Wolfay for your Halloween Cat really fits the mood! What a fun table, and glad that Zoulah is lighting a fire under the little witch. Those bars look fantabulous! Welcome October!!!

Love your table and the theme you went with. I am glad to hear your fur baby is feeling purrfect. It wouldn't be the same without them would it? said...

Fabulous furry fun Joni, black cats are the perfect theme for Halloween, and I just love Frick and Frack! Wolfay looks like a very sweet kitty!
