Ready for Fall visitors.. I even removed the paint color samples I had taped to the door.  Anyone who came was asked their opinion..even the UPS man!

I hope the next time you see it will be…RED…

 

For Halloween, she’ll be perched on her broom there..

The rest of the witches can sit down and have some Ghost Tea and some buttered BONES..I mean scones…

  13. Love the black and white look. Those little witches hanging over the table are so cute too. Do I see the BH&G van pulling up to your home now for a photo shoot? It looks so professional. Your neighbors are lucky to live next to your home and also I bet they get to eat some of your baked good too:)

    Can't imagine where you got the inspiration for those plates :)

    You're so clever to spray paint the hydrangeas. They do add that spooky flare.

  26. Oh I am so glad you told me about the cloche, I just had to go take a look and leave a comment. See what happens when you don't feel good and then you don't make all the rounds. You miss the best things of all. I LOVE your cloche and the pumpkin inside is wonderful too. It is huge and what a thrill it will be to decorate inside. Oh, I can't wait to see what you do at the next party. I really do love the size of it, what a find. Hugs, Marty

  29. Kathleen, your rhyme is so cute, and your table is stunning. How can you make a tablescape pretty and cute all at the same time? Your entry way looks so inviting, but I absolutely LUV that pumpkin tea pot with the ghost lid. Great post! laurie

    ReplyDelete
  30. Kathleen, love the bigger pics! Your outside decorations are terrific but the tablescape is "to die for"! What a great colour combo for Halloween and those black/white checked plates work great. As always, your hydrangeas make a wonderful centerpiece when painted black and surrounding the white pumpkin. Absolutely fabulous!

  41. Your grandchildren must love coming to your house! I love all the decorations and I swear I saw Matt Lauer hiding behind one of the pines :) I think your door will look stunning painted red. Of course I'm a slightly biased - LOL.

    The best part of your post is your table setting! I love everything about it. Black and white is another favorite after red! Leave it to you to paint hydrangeas black! Great job!

  49. Kathleen, Hi! Concerning those brown bowls (only had 2)---I did purchase those at my corelle outlet and those were the only two. But the ones they sell in the stores are half the size...they look similar.

The black & white was really cute with the white pumpkins & black hydreangeas.

  67. Ok, ok... I'm slow getting to everyone today- I was gone on an outing with a friend to meet HER new blogging pal from TX! Had a blast.
    So... Your black & white tablescape is just so classy! love the checked plates! I would love to do something like this for the holidays- I bought new silver and white dishes during a huge clearance sale at Target last Xmas. Now I need a black tablecloth- but it is so hard to find some colors in a 120 inch length.
    The hydrangeas are gorgeous.... did you use floral paint spray or regular paint?
    Always happy to have you visit, Kathleen! hugs,Sue

  68. Love the tablescape and I love your front porch decos!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Your front porch is so country & cute. So you are going to paint the door red? That will be even cuter!!

    Your tablescape is very neat. You have a nice collection of black and white to mix up when you want...the plates are awesome. AND, so are the black hydrangeas!!!

    Enjoy your weekend, Kathleen!!

    xoxo

  70. Kathleen, this is a stunning tablesetting. I love those black & white dishes...you've outdone yourself with this setting!

    Your porch is so welcoming in it's fall decor. How fun you even have the pumpkin fabric for the loveseat. It will be fun to see the door color transformation as well.

    Inquiring minds want to know...what paint color did the UPS man pick for the door? :)
