Spooky Dining Room, Part 1, 2016

Welcome to Part 1 of my Tour of our Dining Room decorated for Halloween!!

Let's start in this corner......
Today, I want to share the 2 tables in this corner by the Dining Room.......
The first table in this corner of the Dining Room is an antique Smoking table that was given to me by a neighbor........
The top of the table.......
I recently bought this "stack of books" at Michael's.....
"Brews, Potions and Enchantments"
In a crystal compote is a mercury glass pumpkin embellished with rhinestones.......
 Joe bought it on clearance at Burlington last year for only $2.00!

On top of the pumpkin is a crow and spider......
These are 2 embellished peat pots that I made and filled with candy.......
A Bony Hand grasps a black and white pumpkin.......
A Halloween floral arrangement in a crystal vase.....
Underneath the table.......
Several pumpkins..........
A rat and a black rose.......
A black cat.......
  My Halloween Witch's Table.......

On the side of the table , hanging on the vintage window.......
Several Halloween signs.....
A Halloween Tussie Mussie that I made.......
A Bow made from Halloween Ribbon and 2 Skeleton Lady ornaments dressed up the wall clock.......
A handmade Witch's Hat rests on top of a vintage Hurricane Lamp........
 Potion Bottles and Skulls......
A skull rests in an antique silver Bridal Basket......
A silver bony hand holds a pumpkin......
A bottle filled with chocolate "eye balls"......
A Bat plate behind a few potion bottles............
I made the potion bottles out of household jars......
They rest on a silver platter from Dollar Tree.....
On the side of the table is a marble topped stand......
A Bird Cage sits on top of it........
A bow made out of 3 different ribbons rests on top of the bird cage.....
A silver skull that I just bought at Dollar Tree is displayed inside of it......
The bird cage is on top of  a pedestal that I made by gluing a plate to a candle stick.......

A black pumpkin and white skull, also bought at Dollar Tree below it......
In my next post, I will be sharing the rest of my Dining Room decorated for Halloween!!
So I hope you will come by and visit  again!!

  1. OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH how spooky, I loveeeeeeeeee it {{{squealing with delight}}}...those rats are darn right scary though, smiles. Thank you for the smiles and the giggles...I bet your best house to get candy at. smiles

  2. You have so many gorgeous metallic pumpkins but the one on the smoking table is my favorite! I just love your elegant Halloween decor.....hugs....

  3. my goodness, you do have a lot of decorations. And, they are all wonderful...what a fun post.

  4. Hi Debbie, wow, so many fun decorations to admire! Cute idea to place the witch's hat on the lamp and your blackbirds, I think they came from the same neck of the woods that mine did! Michael's! Thanks so much for visiting my Halloween post and have a wonderful Autumn weekend!

  5. Oh, Debbie-DEE!! I have just enjoyed this immensely, scrolling down and down through all the whimsical and scary and quite-clever touches---your artistic brain just thinks of the most interesting things.

    Your seasons are such a treat to visit and enjoy---I just don't know where you find the time or all those special items---and your knack for arranging them, pairing this with that and making such a charming (and scary) group of vignettes everywhere I look.

    I always leave your site smiling from all the fun, and as with another Holiday Decoration Queen of my acquaintance (the talented lady at Purple Chocolat Home) I go back to my own little arrangings so impressed and so covetous of the SPACE you must have for storing all your lovelies. I can't find glasses and keys at the same time, and have posted on my own blog only once in weeks, while you keep up with seasons and themes and colours like a genius. Wow.


  6. Tee hee hee Debbieeeee - what a room filled with Halloween goodies! This looks like a Halloween shop - every surface filled to glorious perfection! Haha, I have to laugh at what Rachel said, because I was just wondering where you store all of your delectable goodies too! (Mine are in bins in the basement!)
    I love the jars, the skeleton ladies on the clock, the variety of pumpkins, the birdcage - oh whatever - I LOVE IT ALL! You are too fun!

  7. wow!! You are ready for Halloween!!

  8. so cool, you sure have found some interesting pumpkins and the collection being all white and black looks great. Love the spider web lace table cloth, the hat on the lamp was a cool idea too!

  9. WOW! What an amazing dinning room. I totally love the witch hat on the lamp. It is so perfect and the tussie mussie is adorable. Thank you so much for sharing your decor. Hugs, Beverly

  10. What fun it is to see such goodies. My grandchildren would love this.

  11. How many Halloween goodies! The table in the corner is stunning and very spooky. The black and silver pumpkins are amazing
    Hugs Alessandra

  12. I love the hat on the lamp! I totally want to try that out on our lamps! Thanks for sharing with us at Merry Monday this week!

  13. Both tables are hauntingly fun Debbie! Love the birdcage!! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  14. You do a great job of mixing things together. I especially like the round table in the corner and the witches hat!

  15. Spooky & sweet! Thanks for sharing with us at #DIDI

  16. You create such fun little vignettes in your home. I can tell you love to decorate for the seasons and it's always so fun to take a tour of your home.

  17. I can tell you had fun with this, Debbie! Thanks for sharing @Vintage Charm!

  18. I love looking at all your decor! :) SO FUN!

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for recipes, crafts, tips, and tricks: https://www.facebook.com/groups/pluckyrecipescraftstips/

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

  19. Debbie, you really are a master at decorating for each holiday. I don't know how you do it all!

    I'll bet visitors to your home have a wonderful time looking at everything! Wish I could come by for a nice cup of witches' brew. :)

  20. I adore your decorations. I bet you have a storage unit to hold them all! Thanks for sharing with us at the Halloween blog hop.
