My Playful Witches Halloween Tablescape uses shades of purple as an alternative to the traditional color palette.
After Maggie’s Dark and Moody Tablescape I thought it was time to liven things up a bit. Several years ago, while shopping at TJ Maxx these cute little witches winked at me as I passed them. I’m sure they also whispered, “take us home with you”. How could I resist? They weren’t menacing, I knew they would get lots of use, plus, they were on clearance. I named them Belinda and Melinda.
This Playful Witches Halloween Tablescape starts with a lavender polyester tablecloth. One of many that I’ve purchased from Smarty Had a Party.
However, they did insist that I include their oversized shoe with them as well. Maybe it was their childhood home but they’ve surely outgrown it now. The dusty and almost dilapidated shoe is adorned with purple and green ruffles and houses a sparkly purple pumpkin. Their gigantic striped shoe is perched on a small platform that was a thrift store purchase last year. On top of it, I placed a gigantic purple glittery spiderweb.On the backside is another pair of shoes that are votive holders.
Down front of the enchantresses is a silver and black stand depicting running witches. Where they are running to I have no idea.
As playful as my witchy friends are, sometimes they don’t like crowds. For this reason, they are the center of attention on the table. I also kept additional décor at a minimum.
Many years ago Melinda and Belinda befriended a few crypt keepers that were guarding the tombs of their dearly departed comrades. In honor of this friendship, the girls ask that they be included on their table.
With all of the special requests taken care of, I had carte blanche on the dinnerware. I used a light purple acrylic charger. These dishes don’t have a Halloween theme but the color palette is perfect. Shown here are the dinner and salad plate plus a shallow bowl.
On each setting, I combined a lavender (from Smarty Had a Party) and a black napkin. They’re held together with a brushed silver napkin ring.
The flatware with basket weave motif rounds out the stack.
To complete the Playful Witches Halloween Tablescape I placed a mulberry-colored goblet purchased from Ross’ along with a standard thrift store goblet.
The witches and I thank you for stopping by to see what they’ve been up to this year. I’m also sharing this post at the following link parties. Drop by and show them a little love!
