Tablescapes, The Witch is In!


It’s Autumn Tablescape Blog Hop week!

When sweet Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate suggested this hop, she said we could do anything Autumn, Halloween or Thanksgiving…{see all the links at the end of this post]





Since Autumn is slow coming to the deep South,  I’m afraid I went a little rogue with my post today, and did not do a wonderful fall tablescape, full of fall foliage, pumpkins, and fine china



I can’t quite concentrate yet, on setting an autumn table for family and friends, or think of Thanksgiving…

I have to get in a little Halloween mischief first…nothing says fall better than a spider or two!

What could be more fun than visiting a witch today and see how she sets her table!




Welcome my pretties!  Come in, come in!




I have so much to show you but before we begin




Set your worries aside and proceed with a grin!




I’m so glad you found my house today





It’s on the corner of  Spooky Street and Witches Way





Look for the parking sign by the sparkly broom, I’ve left you a spot, there’s just enough room






What you don’t have a sparkly broom??  It’s THE lastest thing, you must get one soon!




October is on the horizon my dear,





My most favorite-est  month of the very whole year!





I’ve been decorating and dusting my cobwebs for you





Brewing potions, and spells, there’s so much to do!





I’m so glad you could stop by for a bite





Your place is all set, no worries no fright





The cauldron of soup is bubbling away





It’s Cream of Spider, the soup of the day!





Don’t mind those creeping witches, they’re just passing through,





When they found I was cooking, they feared being tossed in the stew!





I’ve tidied my desk, it was quite the mess





I’ve begun making a list, for my very next dish





Help yourself to an apple





They’re not poison I promise




I might be a witch, but I’m really quite honest




I’m one of the good ones you see,




You’ve heard of the good witch, well, that would be me!





Have some Love Potion, it’s there by the crow




He’s blind as a bat…, he’ll never know!




Stock up on sweet eats,




It’s almost time for Trick or Treat!




Don’t forget your striped tights




And polka dot shoes




With your sparkly broom, you’ll be making the news!





Thank you for your visit!

Be sure to visit all the wonderful autumn tables by my talented Blog Hop friends!

    Jenna, Can you hear my cackle of glee? I love all your bewitching details…you know my cauldron has bubbling for weeks and weeks and I have a new pair of striped tights! I must scare up a new broom or some sparkles for mine. I hope you’ll share your recipe for Cream of Spider Soup~ I like mine garnished with some dried Bat Wings )


  2. How fun good witch Jenna! So creative. Love the witch runner with the dangling legs!


  3. Oh my goodness, Jenna! You’ve pulled out ALL the stops for a bewitching party, not just a tablescape! Halloween must be your all-time favorite fete! It’s all so adorable, I don’t know which vignette would be my favorite. Of course, I love that apple stand ;), but that witch leg cake stand sure is cute, and so is the plate stack. So many cute details, all of them.

  7. Marsha says:

    How absolutely sweet and adorable. I loved looking at all of the fantastic Halloween items. They all are so fun and amusing. I was so excited to see more with each picture. I could go for some wine with the spider soup. I love your collection, including the candy dishes, runners, wine glasses and your sparkling broom. You are so creative. I felt young and I wanted to go trick or treating….if only for a moment. Truly a child’s and adult’s delight!


  8. You have really Halloween pegged perfectly. You have decked your home with so many cute Halloween decorations. I especially love your table, I wish we could see more details of your table, it looked so cute! Thanks so much for being a party of the Autumn Tablescape Blog Hop!


    • Thanks Chloe, I do hope it’s ok that I did Halloween, I have already posted several fall pumpkin tables in the past few weeks so wanted to do something different…as for the table, it is actually the desk in my painting studio…I was trying to disguise it! I did try to show all the details of the place setting for 1. Thanks so much for hosting and herding us! Sorry for all the link confusions, we’ll all do better next time 🙂 You are the hostess with the mostest! >
