I LOVE Halloween! It's my favorite holiday. Even more so than Christmas. I even have a huge Halloween village that lights up and makes noises. (Yes, I know most people have Christmas Villages.) Since my accident, this is the first year I've decorated for Halloween. The porch, the door, the kitchen table. I intended to set up the Halloween village on the dining table but I gave up. It's a lot of work to make sure the lights and cords work for 50+ houses and I ran out of time and patience. Maybe next year. So I was left with an empty dining table with only a black tablecloth and my silver candelabras with black tapers in them. We were in Dallas last weekend and Central Market had the cutest little white baby pumpkins you've ever seen! I didn't know what I was going to do with them at the time, but I bought a bag full. I brought them home and the idea hit me. I have a really cool black wire cupcake stand. I added the white pumpkins (now I wish I had bought more) and orange pumpkins and came up with an adorable centerpiece I'm really proud of. You could substitute mini decorative gourds too, but I love the Halloween look. I hope you do too!
|My mother-in-law bought me this|
adorable cupcake stand at Target. She said
they only carry the black this time of year.
(I also have it in cream.)
I love cupcake holders and cake stands
almost as much as I love Halloween!
|Here's a better view. It's easier to see the|
cupcake stand when It's not against
the black tablecloth. Isn't it fun?
And yes those are Halloween
platters displayed on the bar.
|Aren't those baby pumpkins the cutest?|
I wish I had bought more white ones.
You could use decorative gourds and make this
a Thanksgiving centerpiece too!
Happy Halloween Friends!
