Ghost, Ghost Houses and Pumpkins

 I love anything ghosts except for the real ones. I have a group of friends from College and we call ourselves "The Spooks". We still meet and have regular reunions and our next one is scheduled in the Philippines this coming January.
 4 individual pumpkin lidded bowls and some kind of a pumpkin server.
 The ghost salad plates are Waechtersbach, made in Germany. I used them first many years ago when my classmates from College and I had a reunion at our home in Natchez, MS.
 Napkins with pumpkins held by black wire rings.
 Spode flatware in "Woodland" pattern

 I thought I would again use this ghost mom and child that I bought from Goodwill. You can also see a little ghost holding a tapered candle behind it on its right.
 I bought the white pumpkin soup tureen from Walmart while buying some paint for my first granddaughter, AJ's room a few weeks ago. I have small individual white pumpkin tureens to match them but they are still in Natchez.
 I love these goblets. I am glad I got them moved here in time for Halloween. They have a greenish tinge on top with orange stems.

 The dinner plates consists of 2 ghosts and a spooky house by Gates Ware. I bought them from Homegoods a few years ago.
 Bronzy faux alligator skin plate chargers. I have had them forever that I cannot recall where I bought them from.

 For the teapot, I dug out my Tracy Porter in "Amourette" pattern from one of the bins in the garage.
I love the colors!
I baked some petite fortunes last night with the help of my granddaughter Reese.
 Petite fortunes are made out of butter, eggs, cashew nuts, cornstarch  and sugar.
