THRIFTY AND BOO-TIFUL TABLE

**It is rainy and stormy here in Ga so flash photos were a must**


This is my first Halloween tablescape!
It was so much fun to put together!  Inspired by some plates found at a thrift (of course) this is a tablescape using only thrifty finds! 
This tablescape was inspired by the cute desert plates found at the thrift store
The plates feature ghosts so that's the theme
I started with a white charger, black plate & the Halloween plate
Orange napkins found again at the thrift topped with a 'ghost'
Where is the silver ware??
Tucked into these cute black witches shoes
These were on clearance after Halloween last year
Each place has a crow wine glass
The centerpiece features one of my favorite decorations
This Ghost with a little peek-a-boo!
A closer look!  
 Another clearance item (75%) from
Cracker Barrel several years ago!
This cute ghost dish was found a few weeks ago thrifting sitting on a tea towel found in a Texas thrift
I have added a few vintage items to the table
Cute sheet music for 50 cents
Black depression glass creamer
Black & white vintage Pyrex 

Vintage black vase 
with an orange candle 

I am very happy with my Halloween table!!

I hope you will join me and look at all the 
Boo-tiful tablescapes at Susan's
Between Naps on The Porch

and also visit Suzanne




DON'T FORGET MY FIRST JUNKIN FINDS PARTAY
The link will be up Friday morning!  Hope to see you there!
 
Always,
Linda

Hi Linda,
Girl, you've done it again! Created a great halloween theme table setting complete with every little detail.

I love all the little ghosts, particularly the one with the little boo peeping out.

Now, all you need is some yummy food for those cute plates.

hugs
Sissie

I love Halloween decorations. Cute table. Are you sure that creamer is not black amethyst? There is a bit of light shining through the top and it looks purple. Hold it up to the light to see if you see purple.

That table is darling, but what sets it over the top is the witch's boot for the flatware! Adorable!

A Hopeful Heart said...

Although I don't observe Halloween and never decorate for it, I DO think you've put together a cute and fun table. I think it's amazing how you create such great tablescapes using thrifty finds. Definitely, you make it clear that tablescaping doesn't necessarily mean expensive.

Have a great day.

Hugs,
Patti
