Monster Mash

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! Please visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch, our hostess for this event.
For this week's Tablescape Thursday I didn't do a traditional, dining-type tablescape, but rather vignettes with my two Halloween trees.
I have been haunting (pun intended!) eBay and Amazon in search of Halloween ornaments, and I've bought a ton. Mr. Maison is going to behead me if I buy one more ornament!
First off: Please ignore the ugly cords hanging down. Before we bought our house and remodeled the kitchen there was a peninsula cabinet here, and a place for a wall phone (remember those?!). Anyway...we have a devil of a time (another pun intended!) getting electricians, plumbers, dry-wallers, and such, so the ugly cords still dangle.

This cute flicker candle is from Colonial Candle...

Would you care for some ghoulade?

It's hard to tell, but there's skull-shaped ice cubes floating in the ghoulade...

Ghoulade not to your liking? Then have some mulled wine...

I love this cheeky little guy...

I followed Gollum's cue with this Halloween tree made of just twigs gathered in the yard...

I love these candy corn Kisses!

Don't forget your treat on the way out...

Gnarled black tree: Lenox
Flicker candle, candy bowl, votive holders and wall clings: Colonial Candle

  5. You found some cute and scary things, I love them all, and love the Halloween bowl

  6. These are some wonderfully scary decorations, Tammy. You've set them out in very creative ways.
    I have the same problem with some cords at my kitchen desk. Stupid builders!! I intend to make a criss-crossed ribboned display board to hide them. Perhaps you could hang a picture over yours? Frustrating, I know.

  7. I like your little Halloween trees. In fact, I used a Halloween tree for my tablescape too. Thanks for sharing. Happy TT and Happy Halloween to you!

  8. Love your ornaments and trees ! That treat jar is cute !

  9. Lovely vignettes! Your Halloween tree turned out great and is a great idea!


  10. I haven't seen a Halloween tree before-what a great idea! I might try that next year.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Best wishes, NM.

  11. Love your Halloween tree! Thanks for sharing the discount at Colonial Candle. Have a great day!

  13. Hi Tammy! Oh, your home is just so Spookalicious! Everything is so cute!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Hi Tammy, Love the little black tree...I love the way it looks at night..You did a wonderful job...

  15. Hi Tammy,
    Great fun! I'm thinking there's a Halloween tree (or two) in my future! Definitely an inspiring post ... scary too! But not terrifying ... ;)

    Happy Halloween!

  16. Love your tree and those ornaments are adorable too! Lots of cuteness -- Happy Halloween.
