Black and White Pumpkin Theme

This is a simple black and white Tablescape with my white soup tureen as the centerpiece. The setting is our breakfast room.  

       Minature Cloches are great for dessert or .....
I just realized, I forgot to put the other  chargers under my plates...
silly me.  At least I have one charger....

    Here's a larger bird cloche, with stacked pumpkins.

As I said before, this is our Breakfast room, formerly our Dining room. I re-covered our chairs to go with the red theme.

        I found this adorable shoe vase for flowers.

Aren't these cute?  They almost look like fancy Witch shoes...

This  Ironstone soup tureen is American Atelier - Athena
I made  creamy Pumpkin soup.  Click here for the recipe 
I decided to also make Pumpkin soup shooters with a bread-stick finger for the dinner on Saturday night.
Who says, you can't have fun with food?

I used a scary finger mold for the fingers and added almonds to look like  finger nails.

 I found the white Pumpkin salt and pepper shakers at BB&B
for $1.50

 Here's the American Atelier - Athene dinner plate with a
Gracie China salad plate.  The charger I bought from Cost Plus.

I actually spray painted the charger white.

I found the place mats at Ross along with the dessert pedestals.

Dessert was No-cook  Pumpkin Chocolate ice-box Cake
You can find the recipe here.

 I made this dessert in a 8x8 pan, then decided to serve it in a wine glass.  I added whipped cream and a ghost.

I wanted to show our pedestal and chair legs in this room.

              Here I time.....

I almost forgot.  Here's a photo of our Halloween dinner party on Saturday night.  I think I will rest for awhile.. After 3 dinner parties, I need a break.

           I am linking up with the following Blogs.....


I hope you enjoy this simple tablescape.
Thanks again for visiting......Make sure to visit these wonderful blog parties.
