Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! I am so happy that you are here for my sweet but spooky Halloween table. Monday will be Halloween, and I couldn’t let my Autumn tablescape series go by without a Halloween tablescape. While I don’t have a lot of Halloween decor, I do have some sentimental pieces that I decorate with each year.
When I was a child growing up, Halloween was always a fun and special time. As a child, I would patiently wait for my Dad to get home from work to take me trick or treating. I couldn’t wait! He couldn’t get home fast enough! My Mom would stay home and hand out candy to the children stopping by. After we were finished making our rounds, we would pick up Mom, and head to my Grandmother’s house for a Halloween Party. She hosted this party every year for my cousins and I. We were so blessed that we all lived in the same town. It was so much fun! We would visit and eat lots of delicious food. When we were ready to go home, my grandmother handed each one of us our own special bag of Halloween treats filled with candy bars, Cracker Jacks, and fruit. Oh, how I would give anything to go back again.
My fond memories have allowed me to pass this tradition down to my own children. Every year on Halloween, we spend the day making crafts and carving pumpkins. In the evening, after trick or treating, we come home and have a Halloween Party. It is something my kids look forward to each year. This year, I will only have one that will trick or treat, but the other two will be required to attend my party. I’m a sentimental girl, and traditions are important to me. Today, I would love to share with you my sweet but spooky Halloween table.
The centerpiece to my tablescape is very special to me. It is a Jack-O-Lantern accompanied by ghosts and goblins that my Mother put out each year as her Halloween Decor. I placed the Jack-O-Lantern on a pedestal and surrounded it with a pretty Fall wreath.
After all, you must have a Jack-O-Lantern to keep the witches, ghosts, and goblins away.
If you look real close, you can see a few creepy spiders decided to join the party.
Thank you so much for taking a trip down memory lane with me. I’m so happy that you stopped by, and I hope that you have a happy and blessed Thursday!!!
