Spiderwebs, Crystal and Silver Pumpkins

I’m  joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.  I’m also joining Stephanie Lynn at Under The Table and Dreaming for her Halloween Pumpkin Parade Party.  Don’t you want to join us too?  I’m sure you’ll find lots of inspiration in all the beautiful tables and Halloween decor.

I decorated this Halloween table in sparkling silver, black and crystal.  I started out with a black tablecloth and topped it with a silver runner.   


Shimmering silver beaded place mats went on the table next.


Each place setting is layered with a black dinner plate, a silver liner plate and a black soup bowl.




Placed on top of the soup bowls are black and silvery gray plaid napkins.  The silver napkin rings are dressed with a black and silver ribbon.


A crystal dish for holding butter is placed on the black bread and butter plate.  I placed a silver paper doily under the crystal dish for a little extra shine.  Then I added a crystal handled butter spreader on top of the crystal dish.


Black and crystal diamond point stemmed glasses will be used for iced tea.


Glittered silver spiderweb votive candleholders are placed at each setting.  A spiderweb place card is attached to each candleholder with silver ribbon.


Silver candelabrum draped with ropes of iridescent black and dark blue beads were placed at each end of the runner. 



A black napkin placed on a silver tray forms the base for the centerpiece.  Silver pumpkins, more black beaded rope and Halloween masks decorate the tray.




A couple of views of the entire table…



I want to thank you for visiting with me today.  Company is always fun and welcome, so I hope you’ll come back very soon!

Oh my goodness! How in the world you managed to make a Halloween and spider webby table look ELEGANT is beyond me. This is really just a drop dead gorgeous table at first look. Then, when I started catching all the Halloweeny details, it was just amazing.

Love the silver, especially the touch of the mask.

I try to see as many as I can from TT, but inevitably, I miss some. I'm so glad that I caught this one!

Great job.

Absolutely stunning. This is such a fantastic table and each photo kept it unfolding. Those goblets are to die for and the beaded placemats and webby candles are wonderful. The mask is the perfect touch. I love the candlelight pictures, they just capture the eery elegance. What a wonderful table.

Your watermark really adds to it too. I love that font, what is it?
