Tea For the Dead

It's mostly brown, orange and green but this is mainly for
Beverly's Pink Saturday because she is having an Autumn Welcome Party. And what is the first thing that welcomes you in a house but the front porch? So, that is what I am sharing today, our front porch.
You will see this settee and 2 chairs with a coffee table on the right side of the porch. I placed some promegranates in a chicken wire bowl.
 Below you will see the front porch in its entirety, the left, center and right side, only they are on top of each other.
 Here is the right side again.
 View from one side.
 View From the Other Side.

 Getting ready for the trick or treaters on Halloween!
 I decided to have a tea party with my friends while waiting for the kids. English fruits tea with Halloween candies.
 I saw this lit maple tree at Kirkland's and bought it for half price at $14.99. It really brightens the area.

 The tea set is Noritake Nippon Toki Kaisha. It is one of my favorites because it looks very southern. We captured the Blue hour. Look at that pretty blue sky!

 Here they come! They came on a hayride and in truck loads.
 John was busy handing out the candies while we sipped our teas.

 The tea was set for the emotionless dead.
 The Vampire princess and queen got impatient and hungry. They said, "Let's have tea now or else!!"
 Flapper and Ghost of Christmas Past (who came early BTW) decided we better have tea before the vampires consume us both. Besides, the ghost is fading fast too, so we better hurry!
 Our breakfast nook table is still in Autumn mode too.
Hope you enjoyed that. Thanks for coming. Thanks to our hostesses.

I really wanted to come join you for tea! What a beautiful porch. The lights are so cute.
We had to postpone our Halloween because of the storm. I'm not sure it will be the same next Wednesday but we have to do our best to make it great for the little ones:)

Christine, you where a ghost???! You are the prettiest ghost I've ever seen (the only ghosts I've seen are in movies). Your porch looks so pretty, even filled with vampires and ghosts. laurie
