Spiders, Spiders Everywhere

Thinking of all my friends on the 

East Coast with love and concern 

as they face the ordeal of Hurricane Sandy.  

A few weeks ago I shared an inspiration table

Click the link above if you missed this charming table.

It inspired me to set a 

table crawling with spiders.

So I could use my own set of these 

darling arachnid plates from Tag.

The inspiration table was set 

with just black and orange details, 

but I wanted to add in a touch of plum.

Instead of a tablecloth, 

I used my favorite ruffled edge woven placemats 

topped with my all time favorite Courtly Check chargers.

The colorful napkins atop 

simple black dinner plates provide a 

perfect backdrop for the cute plates.

The plates were sold in sets of four ~ 

two with black borders and two with white borders.

A festive headband at each 

place setting adds a touch of whimsy.

Take your choice of the spider's web above, 

this black widow with its pointy hat,

The bug eyed fly, 

Or the masked black cat.





Around the large wooden 

tray that holds a spooky tree.

Where owls, black cats, 

and witches boots and hats

sway from its branches.

Little munchkins roam below.

Vintage noise makers are at the ready, and

Your very own candy corn 

filled witch shoe party favor awaits.
