Floral Medusa With Elegance | Life and Linda

Floral Medusa With Elegance


Hello here time for another tablescape blog hop.  I hope you enjoy your visit.
Many thanks to Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate for organizing another fun tablescape blog hop.  I am happily joining my fellow  Tablescape Blog Designers on this fun Halloween Tablescape Blog Hop. I am thrilled you are here.




Be sure to check out the other table designs on the bottom of this post.
Halloween is such a fun holiday.  I believe it can also be elegant and not creepy.
Don't get me wrong, I do creepy as well.....



My Lady Medusa has an elegant floral head dress.  I wanted her to look beautiful with flowers that are rich in color, plums, burgundy, etc.I happened to have a styrofoam head in my closet, so she got a makeover. I made a mistake of spray painting her.  I then tried to cover up my mess with glitter paint.
A purple spider web tablecloth is a lovely backdrop for this creative tablescape.
Since plum and burgundy were used, I decided to use my  Faux Purple Maple Leaf Placemat from Pier1.  I love the rich colors.

Purple napkins with a sparkly spider web napkin ring fits the bill. The  black flatware goes nicely with this look.

The plate stack consisted of a purple chargers, black dinner plate, white scalloped salad plate and the watercolor skull plates.
Pretty pumpkins dress the table.  I added some purple bling to the burgundy pumpkins.




My cute little witch sits happily on a burgundy pumpkin.


I have included both daytime and evening photos.


A dramatic look in our dining room with purple lighting.  My husband has added Phillips Hues lights in the ceiling controlled by an app.  We can change the lights to any color.  I use my iPad to change colors.

  2. Spookily elegant Linda! I love your rich burgundy and plum palette! The floral skull plates are perfect with your floral Casado on your Medusa and I love candelabras with their assortment of color in your table. I hadn’t heard of the Phillips Hues lights...how eerily perfect that you can control the lighting for a spooky ambiance. It’s always a pleasure to blog hop with you!

  4. I love the plum palette for Halloween! My favorite part, hands down, is your floral medusa - she might have been a mistake, but she is just perfect on your table centered between your candelabras! I also really like your floral painted pumpkin and adore the floral skull plates. The entire setting is so cohesive and elegant!

  11. So elegant, Linda! I love that floral Medusa head. Flowers are so much preferred to snakes! I spotted those same salad plates at Home Goods and had them in and out of my cart trying to decide if I should buy them...I didn't! Your centerpiece was the perfect coordinating feature with those plates. Thanks for joining in for another hop! Happy Halloween!
