Juicy Details

I bought the ghosts at the local 5 & 10 [yes, there is still an actual one in Orange Beach!] for $1 each.  You could easily make your own with a ping pong or styrofoam ball or a white sock, a black Sharpie, and some cheesecloth [available at any grocery store]

Halloween plates, paper skull napkins and spider web mats/Hobby Lobby

clothespin “ghosts” are actually the crabby clothespins I made for Somethin’s Fishy and Netting Crabs

Happy Haunting!!

    Positively spooky Jenna, your ghosts on the coasts have me heading for the hills! Love those cute specters rowing their boat! I had to chuckle at “Enter at your own risk with this skeleton key” 🙂 I miss the days of 5 & 10s although the Dollar Tree is almost as fun. I have those fun Hobby Lobby plates and I was happy to see they brought them back this year. Happy Haunting to you and your little ghosts and goblins!

    This is the first haunted ghostly nautical themed tablescape. Awesome. I love the ghosts in the boat and the haunted mansion centerpiece. So original and unique. I love the plates and the scary story.
