Today is a fun day in blog world because Susan at Between Naps on the Porch hosts Tablescape Thursday. It’s a chance to set a table and share your ideas with others. It’s fun to see the creativity out there. Because Saturday is Halloween I decided to try to come up with a Halloween Scape.
I found 4 of these cute Pumpkin and Scarecrow Placemats at a thrift store last weekend. I paid $1.95 for all 4. I wanted to show you them before I covered them up with chargers and stuff. The spider dish candle holder was from Target clearance last year and I think I paid about 50 cents for it.
The white chargers with black jewel borders were from T.J. Maxx. The square pumpkin plates are paper from Target. The polka dot napkins and the Pewter forks, knives and spoons were from a thrift store, also.
I don’t have a lot of Halloween accessories but was happy to scrape up enough for a scape :0)
Have a safe and sane Halloween Weekend everyone…
Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

How cute this is! Those square paper plates are so great. (I would not have known they were paper), and I really like those chargers. Your placemats are so cute too. Great tablescape. laurie
I think this is perfect– especially for two! I have got to find a better thrift store….love those napkins! Happy Halloween!
I absolutely love those cute square plates. It would be so much fun to have dinner for two at your bar!
I love it, Ellen! Cute Halloween setting!
I love the placemats and the reverse polka dots. Gotta love polka dots.
What a fun and cute tablescape (and I’ll have one of those butterfingers now please). 🙂

That is just so cute! I love polka dots..everything pops.
We have terrible thrift stores here. The prices..so high! You could buy it new!
Great table, Ellen..
Ellen the place mats are darling and I love your plates with the black and white polka dot napkins. Great Job.
I love your scape ! Really love those chargers !
My goodness, Ellen… for not having many Halloween things, you certainly came up with a lovely table! My son saw it and was oohing and ahhing… and being a 10yo of the male variety he isn’t usually even mildly interested in such things as tablescapes. Of course I think the spider candle holder helped significantly… and oh yeah, the candy did not go unnoticed either;)
Cute Halloween setting! I love those little square plates. Thanks for sharing and Happy TT to you!
Very cute, Ellen! Love the placemats!….Christine

This is soooo cute – your ghostly accents aren’t scary at all! Those plates are really cute!

you put a paper plate on a charger! that’s hilarious…it’s like using plastic forks and china plates….which may not be such a bad idea actually…now I think about it……..hhhmmmmmmm
Very Halloweeny and festive!! Fun for you and Dear.

Cute table setting! I’m wondering about the butterfingers and candy corn – are you saving them for the “eat what you want” day?? 🙂
PS thanks for the recipe – I’m going to check it out now.

Oh what a darling table!
Those square plates are just adorable… I want to smile back at them.
Lovely! Happy Halloween!
I like the cute smile on the pumpkin plates. My favorite is the napkins. They look like bow ties.
I think you did a GREAT job on your Halloween TT! If you hadn’t told us those were paper plates, I never would have guessed.
Love your chargers & those dotted napkins! I agree with Susan…I need to find a better thrift store!
What a cute little “scraped” up tablescape. Looks like lot’s of fun. Love the way you’ve done the napkins. And butterfingers — yum!
LOVE your Halloween decor!
