Didn't think I would have any bandages and I've got two drains and a ski mask. Befitting Halloween. I sent a pic to my Chicago friend, Carol and she texted back, "Run for your life, it's the mummy." Thanks, C.
Everything was purchased at "end of season" sales. So the spider web placemats, the black glass vase, black glass underplates and salad plates are from Cracker Barrel Restaurant, the beaded spiders and beaded web runner is from Pottery Barn, the red glasses, votive holders and black candelabra were from Target and the defective tall candle holder was from Hobby Lobby on the 75% off shelf.
18/10 Oneida silverware I've had for about 30 years. When we moved here, we bought a completely different style and finish of silverware, which I like, but not as much as my oldies, but goodies.
The above photo has a small covered butter dish which I have used for individual butter servers, but also for serving small petit fours, candies or tiny cookies.
See the "artificial" dust on the base of the candelabra? LOL.
The collars on the votives are a laser cut cupcake holders I purchased through Amazon. I put them on the candelabra too. Remove before lighting of course.
Better view of the butter dish. My hope is to find some interesting cloth napkins this year at the end of season sales and then I would like to make some glow-in-the-dark polymer clay cross bones for napkin rings.
I just bought these tiny little espresso cups and spoons at IKEA that I am using to serve small portions of dessert. We were at Carraba's for dinner one evening and they served tiny portions of desserts (just enough after a big meal) in their larger shot glasses. Thanks for the inspiration.
Worked on small project last night and will post tomorrow. Little individual cheese boards with a faux turquoise inlay. I had to do something to keep my mind off of today and what better way than to create.
