Welcome to The Tablescaper.
I find it interesting to hear the comments of tablescaping bystanders.
You know. Those in your home that tolerate all of our nonsense.
Week after week of pulling out a ton of dishes,…
…only to put them away…
…without a morsel of food having touched them.
Well, as I was preparing this table and…
…my daughter walked by.
Oh, she said,…
“A sophisticated Halloween”.
And so the name stuck!
These black goblets were my score this week! I happened by a Williams Sonoma and they had these marked down to $5.00 @. They only had 5, but were able to locate more, so 7 more are on their way to me.
Love the high drama of these napkin rings from Century 21. I think Kathleen may have been on that shopping trip. It’s when I got the sheer black topper and coordinating napkins.
The treble clef flatware seemed the perfect choice.
And it all started with this runner from HomeGoods, which I thought gave a bit of an elegant flare to Halloween.
Hope you have many festivities planned!
Tip: When you’re tablescaping: layer, layer, layer! In this tablescape, I have a tablecloth, a topper and a runner – plus chargers. Even the napkins are layered. Layering adds so much depth to your table.
