A Halloween Treat

Wishing you all a Happy Halloween!




Usually when I buy individual pieces, I don't buy the bowls because I hardly ever use them but I like the crown shape of these bowls so I bought them too.

I bought the pumpkin napkin holders the last time we went to New Orleans for hubby's Medical convention. The flatware set is from Neiman Marcus on line. I think the medallion and the swirls go so well with that of the dishes.



I gathered those small stems from the bar cabinet, to wash and sell them. But when I saw that they matched the plates, I decided to keep them again, lol. I used 3 types of stemware here. In addition to the green little ones, I added amber champagne flutes and blue based goblets



I bought the quilted runner while I was visiting my daughter in Fort Myers, FL, at Old Time Pottery for $3.









In case you are wondering why I added goblets with a blue base, it's to tie it together with the bowl.
It's not easy to see but the bowl is actually colored blue and terracota. This Navajo bowl was given to my husband when he worked at the Indian Hospital in Gallup, NM.


"Boo!"



I think I will set one more Halloween tablescape next week and then I will move on to Thanksgiving. I will spend Thanksgiving with the kids in FL but John will be home. I hope you enjoyed this one. Thank you so much for stopping by.

You changed your header, I like it. I love the shape and designs on these dishes and the color can be used throughout the year!

Hi Christine,

Those are really pretty dishes. I sometime by the bows but almost never the mugs. They do cost much more when buying individual pieces... and so I just get what I will use or display!

Everything is so colorful and pretty. Glad you didn't give away those glasses. Just fine another bed to store them under ;)

Thanks for joining the party again this week!

xoxo Bunny Jean

Christine, looks like you are ready for Halloween. Your dishes are pretty. ^_^

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

I love the dishes. The bowl shape is gorgeous! We actually do use bowls here often as I make so many soups and stews in the cooler months. My husband also doesn't like his salad touching his food, so he uses a bowl for salad too. The flatware does look beautiful with your china. Hope all is well at your house. I've been gone and I'm trying to catch up!

XO,

Alycia Nichols said...

I'm out of breath from doin' the Happy Dance about those dishes!!! I cannot find the words to say how pretty I think they are! I can totally understand why you HAD to buy the bowls....they are the coolest!!! The color just defies fabulous!!! Can you tell I might like them a little bit? ;-) I do the same thing....go to give something away and discover I really "need" it! We might as well just give up on trying to give things away...we "need" it all! :-)

First I love your new header, you all look so nice, I love your family pictures. Your tablescape is great, I love the plates and bowls, nice you can buy them individually. Goddness I'm so glad you didn't give away the glasses they look so great on your lovely tablescape. I just put things I love in boxes and store them, that's it! Right now I have some pretty things for Xmas under my bed, lol! Lots of hugs, FABBY
