Halloween Table
I’m hosting a club meeting at my house tomorrow night, but I’m not sure anyone will dare eat anything. You'll soon see why.
Halloween Table 1
Come into my parlor, dearie.
Halloween Table 1a
Oh!  Thanks for noticing my new shoes.  I’m kind of a shoe girl.  Are you?
Halloween Table 3
Come on over here, and let me read the Tarot cards, and I’ll tell your fortune.
Halloween Table 2
Um, that’s not looking very good.  I’ll check my crystal ball.
Halloween Table 4
Things aren’t getting any better.  Why don’t you join me for a ride on my broom?
Halloween Table 6
Oh, okay, you want to see my driver’s license first.
Halloween Table 5
Surely this will suffice.  You see me right there on the end?  I was third in the class.
Halloween Table 7
Well, if you won’t go on a broom ride, maybe we can play a game of Carve.  What silly questions you ask!  Carve is nothing like that silly game of Bingo.  I’ll explain as we go along.
Halloween Table 8
Well, okay, if you won’t play carve, just go ahead and help yourself to some of my brew.
Halloween Table 9
No, no, don’t worry about that arm.  He just wants his skull to boil with him.
Halloween Table 10
Now that is very rude.  You don’t tell the hostess that you don’t like the looks of the ingredients in her brew!  You could use a few etiquette lessons.
Halloween Table 12
Have a taste of my Lizard Ball.  Oh No!  Someone has eaten all of it.  Where is that pesky butler.  BORIS!  BORIS!  Come refill the Lizard Ball plate.
Halloween Table 14
Well, gizzards!  I just can’t get good help any more.  BORIS!  You have let the snake patty plate get empty too.  Where is that man?
Halloween Table 11
Oh don’t worry your little self about that sign.  It’s only a joke.  He-he-he-he!
Halloween Table 14a
It’s about time, Boris!  And what do you have in your bowl?  Suckers!  And they are dum-dums at that!  Boris, our guests will think that they would have to be suckers and dumb to eat out of your bowl!
Halloween Table 16
Wait just a minute!  Did I hear you say that you don’t like my décor?
Halloween Table 23
Let me tell you something, little missy.  Décor is a matter of taste, and you obviously have no taste!  You’ve stretched the limits of my hospitality.  Get out of my parlor now, or I’ll turn you into a toad!  Cackle, cackle, cackle. 
Halloween Table 21
Thank you for visiting my witch parlor.  (I hope you didn’t partake of the food!).  Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit. 

I’m linking this post to  Centerpiece Wednesday at The Style Sisters and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.

My goodness Laurie, Your luncheon display is so delightfully spooky! Boris has stolen my heart away with all of his charm. You must beg the lady in black to divulge where she found her oh so fashionable shoes, they are quite the cat's meow. Your club meeting will be the talk of the town. I love your Halloween decor and your humorous writing is so much fun to read.

Ginger said...

LOL Very cute!! I love your commentary. Boris is pretty neat too.
