Fall to Halloween Tablescape

When I created the fall centerpiece for the dining room table ,   I was hoping that I could use it for Halloween and also again at  Thanksgiving just by altering it a little.

Here is what my fall tablescape looked like when I added touches of Halloween


I made a cozy dinner for two by replacing the fall dishes with some fun Halloween ones......

I found my spider web dishes at Home Goods.     I added a Dollar Tree skeleton to the existing flat ware that I used in my fall tablescape to add another Halloween touch.

The black salad plate also came from Home Goods.

And last but not least the small glass also came from Home Goods.   

I purchased these 'bleeding'  candles at At Home last year for 90% off..............

Spider 31st wooden numbers and a pink bone tapers add some more Halloween touches......

I replaced the neutral sunflowers with some fun black and cream polka dot ones.....added a glitter witch bird.....and put another Dollar Tree skeleton to the top tier

I placed a few small pieces of Halloween decor on the mirror.....

You may remember some of these graveyard pieces from my Halloween fairy garden that I made last year.

More Halloween touches spread around the table....

The spider hanging from the chandy was on the seen last year hanging from a chandy in the front yard.    Actually ,  there were 2 spiders last year,  but I couldn't find the second one.   Does that ever happen to anyone!

Since I couldn't find the other spider......

 this one had to do double duty!

I hung a Halloween banner across the lit cabinet doors......


The fall Thank You banner that was hung across there before found a new home   (you'll see it later this fall again)

Unless I change my mind,

 I will remove all the Halloween decor and use the same centerpiece for our Thanksgiving dinner!
