Witches Tablescape

**updated to add pics of the finished centerpiece!**

Hello All!

I love this time of year.  Pumpkins, falling leaves, a chill in the air, pumpkin-flavored everything, Halloween --love it --I love it all :)

This year, I wanted to do a Halloween-themed dining room table.  It started with these ceramic hands from LTD Commodities for cheap ($4.95 each)!

Creepy and cool, yeah?  Even though they are meant to hang on the wall, this is how I imagined displaying them:

They're mounted to wood blocks:

There's one at each place setting and I used a fabric remnant to wrap around them and hide the blocks.

The hands look like they are reaching out or grabbing at you...

...well, at least that bowl!

The orange glass goblets came from CB2.

Look at that gorgeous color!

There are a number of thrifted items on the table -- solid brass chargers (8 of them for $15):

black glass goblets by Libbey (99 cents each):

This Crate and Barrel (it's marked!) cake plate:

and (another) Victorian boot planter that I spray-painted and filled with a witchy-looking plant:

*update!  I finished the centerpiece-

These super tall, glass candlesticks weren't thrifted but I did buy them on clearance a few months ago from ZGallerie.

Gonna getcha!

  1. What a wonderful Halloween tablescape!

    1. Thank you so much! I think when it comes to Halloween, I'm a kid all over again :)

  2. Love the table, but the orange colored glasses drew me in! Great hands.

    1. Thank you! Yes, the orange glasses had me at hello! I'm a glass freak anyway so finding glass in that vibrant gorgeousness blew my mind :)
