  1. Oh my gosh, Jenna, this is the BEST Halloween table and tale I’ve ever read! Your pirate skeleton looks way more expensive than he was, and his accessories, along with his words (“I started before ye, I’m somewhat of a bum” – laughed out loud, but they only got even better!). So many details, so much imagination…..arrrgh, so good! Bravo!

    I’m always smitten with your jingles, Jenna, and this one was so fun! I love the whole tablescape, and especially the chandelier. Your grands must love coming to your house! As for me, I don’t’ want to heave ho, so I won’t be telling any secrets or sins.

    Hi Jenna, I’ve been reading all of your beach theme posts and all are well done. Love the decorated shell forks, I think I will have to make them to go with my shell chargers also. I have to admit this is REALLY over the top and I’m not into Halloween. The pirate is too cute, along with the parrot skeleton-lol! Love his swash-buckling red sash!! What a great touch! The maps are awesome. Am pinning!

    • Thanks Cynthia, I love Halloween but mostly just the cutesy stuff. When I saw that pirate at Costco last year for some reason I just had to have it…and already have plans for him this fall 🙂 Thanks so much for reading and all the sweet comments! >
