Welcome friends, to my sweet Halloween table. You will not find anything scary at my table just lots of precious memories and sweet treats.
Today, I am so thrilled to be joining my talented tablescaping friends to bring you our Halloween tables. Our wonderful host is my blogging friend Rita at Panoply. A list and links to the participants can be found at the end of this post.
It was a beautiful autumn day, and I chose to set my Halloween table of sweet treats and memories outdoors. Oklahoma is in a severe drought and unfortunately my outdoor gardens are not that attractive. The deer are starving and have chosen to make my gardens their lunch, dinner, and breakfast. The flower bed in the background has been replanted for the third time. The most beautiful Endless Summer Hydrangeas once resided in that bed. Can you believe that the deer have eaten 16 hydrangea bushes, all of the shrubs on the west side of my house, several geraniums, numerous autumn blaze ferns, and a plethora of other plants and shrubs. In our area, the deer are terribly overpopulated and very hungry due to our present weather conditions. We are praying every day for rain, and my heart goes out to the ranchers and farmers who are struggling with these harsh conditions.
Instead of a traditional tablescape, I decided to set a buffet style table with lots of delicious treats to tempt your sweet tooth. I chose a black and white checked table cloth for the anchor of my setting. The colors of autumn look so striking against the black and white.
Cookies, sweet little pails of Halloween candy, and lots of candy corn are ready for my guests. I have to admit I have a weakness for candy corn.
A pitcher of punch and mason jars with cute striped straws on a MacKenzie-Childs Courtly checked tray await thirsty visitors.
A stack of cute pumpkin plates are perfect for holding yummy treats. The plates are by Better Homes and Gardens and were purchased several years ago.
If you have followed my blog for a while, you know this Jack-o’-lantern always graces my Halloween table. My mom put him out when I was growing up, and I put him out for my children when they were little. This year, I perched him on a cake stand surrounded by a fall wreath of berries, leaves, and pinecones.
These darling vintage looking children dressed for Halloween figurines were purchased several years ago. My youngest was very little and spotted them at the grocery store in a Halloween display. He said that their faces looked like baby angels. That melted me, and I just had to bring them home to add to my collection of Halloween decorations.
My sweet friends, I am so happy that you were able to gather around my Halloween table. Your visits and kind comments always mean so much to me. Please be sure to visit all of my tablescaping friends. You will find their links below. Have a most happy and blessed day!
