For a meeting I’m hosting, we will have snack foods, and trick-or-treaters have invaded the buffet table.

Halloween Table-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

As a centerpiece, I used cling-on trick-or-treating figures on the glass panes of this lantern

I used spider leg cupcake holders to hold black cat votive candles.


Jack-o-Lantern face plates will hold some of the pick up foods.  (cbk, Union City, TN)

The spreaders are witch shoes, a gift from a friend some time ago.


Black and white polka dot plates are melamine by Moda Home.  I bought them at Tuesday Morning a few years ago.

Oh Laurie what a cute snack table for your guests. Love all the plates, etc. I had a great set before I started blogging and gave them away to a lady that had children and now I wish I had them back. So I am hunting for some more dishes to do a tablescape. Wish me luck. I'll be right over for a trick or treat snack.

Love to sit at this table! The plates are all adorable and I love the double use of those cupcake holders. I have some of them, and I think I will use them for votives too. The clings on the lantern is such a fun idea. Joni

This is a great table. I think what I like most is how you repurposed items such as the spider cupcake holders and lanterns.

Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays.
