Spiders and Fiesta Halloween 2012 Part 3

I went as far as to bake for this table.  I like to bake. I just don't do it well or often.  I picked the four best cupcakes for this table.  I saw these cupcake holders on several blogs and never thought I would find them here but I did.  They go so well with the table that I made the effort to bake.

I used several of the same elements from my last table.  The place mats were the inspiration. Then I found the napkin rings and the candles.  I used a piece of cheese cloth as my spider web.  The stand holding the witches kettle was a clearance purchase at Big Lots.  The Fiesta colors are Plum, White, Black and Yellow.  I put the plates off to side so you can see the cute spider on the place mats.

And these are my pumpkins.  This the best shot of them together.  Reagan is looking straight into the camera and Ryleigh is looking for a way out.  We have had them for five months now.  They have helped fill the void of my Spunky who we lost last year to cancer.

Happy Halloween!!

I will be joining the following parties be sure to check them out.

Fiesta and Halloween 2012 Part 2

I said it in my last post also but I didn't plan on more than one Halloween table but I forgot about these placemats and napkin rings that I purchased last year.  I couldn't go without using them again.  I like how several bloggers have used purple in their 'scapes and I wanted to try it.  Thank you to all of those who inspire me!!

I used a luncheon plate in white to show off the place mat. Then I layered a plum salad plate which is then topped off with a black fruit bowl.  The Fiesta colors are White, Plum, Black, Chartreuse and Lemon Grass.  The Fiesta pyramid candle holder are one of my favorites.

My hubby has always been more into Halloween than I have.  These tables are more for him.  He likes skulls for some unknown reason.  But it is funny to me that he no longer likes the candles that are in the bowls.  He says they have too many teeth.  His comment just made me laugh. 
My dad purchased this crow set for me.  This from a man that says I have too much stuff.  I never thought my dad would contribute to any of tablescapes. 

I will joining the following blog parties this week:

Have a great week!!  Thanks for stopping by!

Fiesta and Owls

I am considering this a Halloween table because of the owls.  I had only planned to work on one Halloween table but my friend said I should use the wreath as a centerpiece. So that was the inspiration for this table. The Tablescaper used one on her table.  You can see her table here.

The napkin rings were a thrifty find.  There are eight of them with four facing one way and four facing the opposite way.  I like the way the pop with all the dark colors.
The Fiesta colors are Persimmon, Paprika and Chocolate.  Persimmon is my favorite Fiesta color.
I made the ceramic owl way back when my mom was taking ceramics.  This is one of the few pices that have survived. The little votive holder is from the $2.50 section at Target.

These are not the true colors. I like the way they look though. My pictures are coming out orange.  I need to get a new camera soon.

I will joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays. Please stop by her place to see what everyone else is up to this week.
I am also joing Suan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!

Fall with some blue

The inspiration for this table was the napkin, again. It was a thrift store find.  Usually when I find something I really like, I can see the table.  When I see something, the first thought that goes thru my mind is what Fiesta colors will match it.  If I don't feel/see it, I won't buy it.  I'm sure it the same for some of you with the dishes/ items you already have.

The Fiesta colors are Periwinkle, Marigold, Chocolate and Ivory.  My friend gave me the scatters. The ice tea goblets were a wedding a gift. 

The centerpiece vase/ candle holder was a clearance purchase from Kirklands.  The small covered dish is Franciscan.  It has marked with made in the USA.  I know the picture is not clear but is wheat on the front.

The napkin rings were a Goodwill.  They were still in the package.

I will be linking up with Marty at A Stroll thru Life for Table Top Tuesday and Kathleen for Let's Dish.

Have a great week!

Fiesta and Fall Stripes

I'm so enjoying using all my Fall items even though the tempatures outside still feel like summer.  I may not get the time to set all the tables I would like to due to other responsibilities. 

The inspiration for this table was the tablecloth. It was a thrift store find but the label is Sonoma from Kohls.  It goes great with Fiesta is Paprika, Chocolate, Marigold, and Evergreen. This cloth makes me long for a olive green in Fiesta.  There is a vintage Turf green out there but sadly I do not have any of it.

If you do view my posts on a regular basis, you will see a lot of the same elements like glasses and flatware. 

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are enjoying this Fall season!
