The other day Troy picked up the princess at school and then the two of them did some errands. I asked Troy to call me before they headed home because I was setting a surprise table for the princess for that nights dinner. So, this will be a sit down at the table tablescape.
I picked up a black witches hat for .79 cents at the thrift store. I stuffed it with paper and used the glue gun to add a few things.
I started with this fun paper tablecloth that my mom picked up for me.
I added the gauzy net (from DT) as a table runner. Then just scattered the little creepy spider/bug rings (DT) around.
I used the Dollar Tree black skull charger plates with some fun paper Halloween plates that I my mom bought for me.
We had special guests for dinner.
The creepy goblets came from a yard sale this past summer for a quarter each. I have seen them at the dollar stores this year as well.
Then I just added a few odds and ends Halloween creepies to the table.
Everything is just cheapo silly things from the Dollar Tree, thrift store or given to me. For a fun tablescape for a holiday like Halloween, it’s all about being carefree and goofy. Kids love that!
The gaudier the better!
Just have fun. Don’t spend a lot of money. And remember kids just love all the silly things!
And yes, we did sit down and eat dinner at this table. “Meatball eyeballs” with “Wormy Spaghetti”! The imagination is a wonderful thing! The princess LOVED the table! She was so excited to sit down and eat at it.
