This is my Halloween dinner tablescape.
I have already shared the children's tablescape... but this one was for the adults. I use these dishes for other meals during October and November, but I will use different ones for Thanksgiving Day .
These bowls were perfect for our traditional Halloween night dinner of chili.
This pumpkin soup tureen was a great way to serve the Pumpkin Chili.
This was my first year to try making chili with pumpkin added to it.
I bought this tureen and the dishes at Ross.
We also had corn bread and salad.
This has been our family's Halloween night dinner for as long as I can remember.
It is an easy and filling meal... and something that the kids would actually eat!
Do you have a traditional dinner that you fix for Halloween?
I always wanted the kids to have real food in their tummies before going out
and gorging on all that candy, and they would always eat chili!
The candle is sitting on a trivet and I placed
some potpourri around the base.
Even though all the kids are grown and we don't live by the grand kids,
we still have this for dinner. I set the table for four...
just for the tablescape pictures.
I thought it turned out quite festive!
I just folded the napkin and set it in the bowl.
The little decorative pumpkins are just one more of those Halloween decorations
that are more than 15 years old. I just can't throw anything away!
I was lucky to see these avocado green goblets at the Goodwill.
I grabbed them and ran... well not before filling my cart with more treasures.
Here is the complete tablescape.
See the curtain panels peeking out at the end of the table?
Well, I will share how I made them in next weeks Met Monday.
Okay, I just have to show you a few pictures of me handing out the candy later that evening.
See my kid's artwork?
Some of it is 35 years old!
I had a lot of fun!
Thanks for visiting and I hope you
enjoyed this weeks tablescape.
Now go over to Between Naps on the Porch and take a look at all the other great tablescapes for this weeks Tablescape Thursday.
