BUT IT’S NOT EVEN OCTOBER…

and Laurie is having a costume party!  Join me for wine and cheese.

 

FULL TBL 

CNTRPC

 

CNTRPC CLOSUP

CONE HEADS

WITCH 

 

This plate will hold a cheese ball.  Since it is a “for display only” plate, I have topped it with a glass plate.

PLATE FOR CHEESE BALL Ooops! I not only don’t have the cheese ball on the plate, there is no spreader for you to use.  If you have the nerve, you will have to go steal one of the witch’s shoes to use for a spreader. (Maybe you just want to pass up the cheese ball – she looks like she might be dangerous if she gets angry!)

WITCH SHOES

WINE BTL

 

NAPKINS PLATES TOWEL GHOST

OVRHD

A few extra cloches for the cloche party:

HARVESTING CAT UNDER GLASS

CAKE COVER

Witch’s shoe spreaders were a gift from my friend, Charlie Ann.  Cone hat cat was a gift from my friend Susie.  Halloween tea towel was a gift from my sister-in-love, Brenda. I’ve had everything else too long to remember where I got it (or else my brain is too old to remember where I got things).

I’m linking this post to Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the PorchNew_size_125_tall[2][1] and to the Cloche Party at A Stroll Thru Life.  Two wonderful hostesses for two wonderful parties.  Go check them out! Sept._(2)[1]  I also don’t want anyone to miss any of the beautiful posts at Back Porch Musings.  Pat’s blog on Blogger has disappeared!  She has set up a new blog, and the new address for Back Porch Musings is

Thank you for coming to visit me.  Y’all please come back Friday evening, and link up for A Few of My Favorite Things Saturday.  laurie

Laurie I would enjoy your party! Lots to eat and to look at as we chat and enjoy the season! Very cute decorations!

Debbie said...

It is absolutely IMPOSSIBLE to pick a favorite from your collection of wonderful things! I wish that I had half your knack for display. This all looks just wonderful.

OK..just thought of a favorite. Those witch shoe spreaders.

Everything else is a *cloche* second.

Just flat out stinkin' cute! love everything, I want to come to your party!

Kathleen said...

I don't do wine, but I am a great WHINER, ask dh!
Those spreaders are so cute! And do you think you did enough cloches? Are you trying to make the cloche impaired feel bad? :)
They are so creative, and bewitching!
Still summer at my place!

Look at you, all ready for Halloween and the Cloche Party. What a fun tablescape! So clever to put the pointy hat figures inside the hurricane lanterns. I'm going to remember that idea! ~ Sarah

JKW said...

Amazing decor. Thank you so much for sharing. I am going to have to come back and study this, I love it.

I just noticed you put Pat's new blog address. She scared me, I missed her and thank you so much for posting. I had written to a couple of people cached in her old blog. Blessings, Janet

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh Laurie,
How come you are always so clever? You never run out of cleverness! This is so adorable! I love the Halloween people inside the terranium. It's like their having their own little party in there. I want to come to this little party it's just the cutest!
Oh Sigh, your friends and family in Arkansas are so lucky to have you!
Hugs,
Cindy

So festive, Laurie! Those witch's shoe cheese knives are just the cutest. You decorated your cloches so wonderfully. I better get going on mine.....Christine

Glenda/MidSouth said...

What a cute and festive table setting. Really like your cloche decorations. Have not even started on mine.

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

Hi Laurie This is so cute...as usual!

Thanks so much for linking the new Back Porch. I was able to work a little magic or not so much magic and get the old page back. I left a note on a post to direct folks over to typepad, where I have found a home for the "new" Back Porch Musings. I think I will be happier with that setup.

Your support and generosity is very much appreciated!!

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Laurie, you always do the neatest things. I love your party. Those little shoe cheese spreaders are the cutest things I have ever seen. You are always so clever how you put things together. Your cloches look fabulous. You have such pretty ones and you display them so beautifully. Thanks so much for linking to the party. I will have Mr. Linky up later this afternoon. Hugs, Marty

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That was fun. As always your decorations are awesome! I think I need to get my fall things out today.

Trish said...

Your decor and photos are fabulous! Beautiful header, too!

Bill said...

Hi Laurie,
I was still clinging to summer with my table post this week, but your "not even October" costume party's getting me in the mood for fall! Loved all the cloche displays! Your attention to detail (and flair for fun) is always amazing!

I enjoyed your scrapbook post very much. The old photographs and the artistic arrangements of items on the pages were beautiful. Your recent teatime with a story post was very special. You're a wonderful writer (as I'm sure you hear often). I'm a visually oriented person, but I found myself scrolling quickly past the pretty pictures to continue reading ... I hope there will be a part 2 ... and 3 ... and 4 and ...

Mimi said...

Laurie, what a wonderful Halloween table. Those little witches shoe spreaders are the cutest. Love the jack-o-lantern plates. Thanks for sharing and have a great weekend!

bj said...

It's still pure summertime here in West Texas.
Everything looks really cute.

I don't know how to get a message to Pat at BPM...would you tell her I said hello and WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED!! Thanks!!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Ok, long list here... I'm lovin' the clear plate over the decorative one! The Haunted House Wine label is too fun! And the little paper pumpkin is beautiful in the painted cloche! This looks like a fun party:@)

lulumusing said...

Don't you just love all the fun things you can pull out for October? I find myself collecting more and more Halloween themed items because there is so much you can do with them. Fun to see them on your table.

This is such a gorgeous post. I love the way you decorated for Halloween. Your table is gorgeous, and I love all of your Halloween Cloches. I really like how you took your glass house and filled it with such wonderful Halloween creatures.

You always come up with new ideas, you are amazing.
