Tablescape Thursday

Getting ready for a Happy Haaaalllooooweeennnn!!!

Mom gave me these absolutely awesome ghost napkin rings! I couldn't wait to use them.

My black flowered napkins just looked better than plain black. They have a leaf pattern on them, that could even look like webs or something, if you have a good imagination.

Of course, grandma's silverware is too perfect for a gothic table, then my Gibson white dishes serve as the charger this time. Next was my new set of black dinner plates, and a white soup bowl on top.
I got these martini glasses from my son and DIL for Christmas a couple of years ago. I love the white lines on them, and then as you will see later on down, there is a design in the glass that is like a ribbed look.
Years ago, the kids went to ceramic classes and made quite a few little ghosts and goblins. I've
used them around the metal bird cage that has kind of a gothic look to it.

Inside the bird cage, I sat the grim reaper. He looks creepy!
Birds eye view shows the black web look, lace table cloth, over the top of a plain white cotton tablecloth.
A birds eye view of some of the goblins that I scattered around.
