A Haunted Tablescape



Welcome to my ghoulishly fun tablescape. Please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday and Michael at Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday.

Enter...if you dare! Mwah, hah, hah, hah, hah!



Eeek! Look out for the mice! They are looking for something to nibble on...


Here's a nice bench for you to rest your weary bones on...don't mind the cobwebs...they add to the ambience...



Quoth the raven, "Nevermore!"






Won't you have some witch's brew?


Don't mind the eyeballs...they add to the taste...




A spider's eyeview...



Nightfall is setting in...get out...while you still can! Mwah, hah, hah, hah, hah!





"Will you walk into my parlour?" said the Spider to the Fly...

  1. Oh my gosh....my grandkids would have gone bonkers over those little mice! Too wild & they make me shiver. I used snakes & spikers & skulls but your mice are better.
    Great TT!!!

    This was so much fun! Those eyeballs were hilarious...in a scary way, of course! I felt right at home with the cob webs. :-) Too many real ones at my house! Love the rats...great Halloween tablescape!

  20. Okay, I've looked at your pretty Halloween tablescape and I'm delighted for sure! But it's getting dark in that room and I'm scooting out before that mouse runs up my pant leg! Always had a fear of a critter doing that. This is delightful. Make your family sit down in the twilight hours and I bet their eyes go between what's going in their mouths and the critters running amok! Love the plates and flatware! So much fun here!!!
