Fang-Tastic Dinner Party

Come on in and have seat!

This is a very gothic look.  I wanted to use red, black and gold.

Red roses for a centerpiece and red and black wine bottles sitting in my gold high heel shoes.

I draped the chandelier with spooky black fabric.

The dining room has an eerie red glow, made by the Phillips Hue bulbs.  We can change the colors by using the Hue app on our tablets.
I made a setting for Judy, one of our neighbors who wasn't in town to attend this dinner party.
Her husband and friends got a kick out of her.  Sorry Judy, no pun intended.  You were missed!
You do need to eat more....LOL

I layered the table with a red tablecloth and topped it over with a black spider web topper.

Gold flatware with red  square chargers, black dinner plates and my Mikasa red parchment salad plates. I also used red napkins with a spider napkin ring.  For fun, I used the fake vampire teeth.
I glued them at the edges so they were closed more and I  made the place cards on my pc.

  16. Your table is just too fun for Halloween, Linda! I'm sure judy was missed, but what a substitute you provided!! The place cards are soooo clever and so easy to do. Thanks for your inspirational tablescape.

  17. This is so fun! Cleverly thought out, and poor Judy does look like she could use a good bloody steak or something. I have no idea about what you are doing with the lights, but it certainly is theatrical!

  18. Oh, Linda! You're amazing, girl! This table is so cute and a bit scary. Now Judy is quite the hostess too!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  22. Linda,
    I have been traveling again and I have been absolutely itching to get over here and see the entire table setting! Not only is it delightfully fun and clever it is gorgeous. Love, love your layered colors and accessories, and as I mentioned on FB, I would like to join you for a bite;)

  23. Ooh I love this! Love the "blood" red feeling from the tablecloth and the spiderweb overlay.
    The chandi looks cute too! How cute having the skeleton sitting in for Judy! Looks like you had fun with this one!

  24. How clever to replace Judy, looks like you all had fun.

  25. LOL, Judy definitely needs some meat on her bones! Such an inspired table, Linda. Your party must have been a blast. Everything from the spiderweb tablecloth to the skull and cross bones on the wine bottles is just fantastic!
    Love your mad decorating skills, WW. Lots of love to you xoxo
