Dining With Skellies

Welcome everyone.  It's time to celebrate Halloween with a tablescape blog hop organized by Chloe Crabtree. This blog hop runs all week until Friday, so be sure to check back and visit the other ladies sharing their awesome Halloween tables.

You will find the links toward the bottom of this post.  There are fun, spooky and creative tablescapes to explore, so have fun!

I set this table in our formal dining room.  I always enjoy using different lighting.
This all looks purple, however, most of the elements are black, white and silver.
We have overhead lighting that we can control with our tablets, made by  Phillips Hues lighting. I am also using those LED light pads.

Dining with Skellies is a fun table, featuring Grace Skelly.

We have these skellies who are graciously carrying the figs, grapes and apples.
Here she is, Grace Skelly, our guest of honor.

My plate stack consists of silver blingy placemats, followed by a white crown dinner plate, a black plate, then a silver and white plate plus the star, a beautiful gold skull. Silver goblets are perfect with this theme, along with our Mackenzie Childs flatware.

Grace Skelly has to be the center of attention, so she is seated right smack in the middle.

There's those  skellies again.  Poor things have worked themselves to the bone.
Grace Skelly seems to be having a good time.

I love these darling skeleton guys.  I first spotted them on Purple Chocolate Home and I knew I  had to have them, so off to Home Goods I went.

About Linda @ Life and Linda

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. Wow, you are Halloween hardcore, can I come to your party. Awesome decor

  2. Oh Linda I love your spooky dining guest! So creative! The skeletons available now add so much to the season. There's a home in our historic German Village area that has used those skeletons all around the outside of their house - sitting on the front porch having coffee, doing yard work, walking with a dog skelly. It's close to a historic restaurant in the village and gets lots of views. So clever and fun! Have a great spooky season Linda! Blessings, Edie Marie

  3. Linda, You always have the most wonderful lighting effects whether indoors or out! Grace Skelly {grins} has such style and grace. I love your blingy plate stack and silver goblets. I admired those hard-working skellies at HG toting those bowls and trays but passed them up. . . boo! Spooktacular pizza skulls to pair with your sweet smiling salad Jacks! As always it’s a treat to blog hop with you this week! Happy Haunting ☠️

  4. Grace Skelly, bahahaha! Linda, this is perfect in your dining room with all the LED lighting turned purple. I love Grace's eery video, and all her bony minions on the table make for fun serving. I can see the kid coming out in so many tables this season, and yours is one that would make for a great girls' night out. We'd all be cackling over all the details, so great!

  5. Linda, You are the queen of bling and color and lighting! Such a creative table! I don't know where you store everything and how you do so much!
    I can't wait to watch the Grace Skelly video!

  6. How unique and creative Linda! Love the spooky effect of the lighting!

  7. Oh Grace Skelly! She is such a perfect guest of honor for this eerily elegant dinner party. I have mad love for those silver goblets which are a perfect touch to your plate stack showcasing black and silver. I did not see the skelly fellas at Home Goods and I felt like I had looked at absolutely everything! Those jack o lantern salads are super fun for a Halloween dinner party.

  8. Over the top..magazine worthy.Fab pic of her at the table!

  9. I am still laughing - Grace Skelly!!! So fun!! So perfect since your table has such style!! The bling and lighting are phenomenal. Love your plate stack and skeleton serving pieces. Your little pumpkin salads are adorable. The little video of Grace set the tone!! Love it all. Always a pleasure to hop with you, Have a wonderful Halloween!

  10. Linda, Grace Skelly definitely commands attention as the guest of honor at your bone chilling table. So many wonderful details and bling to enjoy! The plate stack is fabulous along with the skellies holding trays. This would be the perfect party table for adults. It is always a pleasure to blog hop with you...Happy Halloween!

  11. EEK! You have really brought the creepy with the amazing purple lighting effects! So many scary servers and dinners at your table! Wonderfully fun and scary and proves that MacKenzie-Childs goes with everything :) Your skeleton pan is creepy cool indeed! Wow!

  12. What a fun table and how creative to invite Grace Skelly to your dinner! The wonderful purple glow to your table adds a spooky feel to your table. You have styled a great plate stack and those glittering silver goblets are great! On top of all of that, what creative food you are offering up!

  13. Grace Skelly! CRACKS ME UP Linda. You always outdo yourself with a table girl. I expected nothing less even with a GRACE SKELLY. LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  14. Those skellie serving pieces are fabulous and the purple haze sets the tone for a spooktacular evening!

  15. Linda, I am at awe over your glamorous table. Grace Skelly really shows off her fine taste and is very sophisicated and well dressed. I love all of your lighting, serving dishes and plate stacks are awesome. The crystal ball centerpiece is perfect for your guest of honor. The skull pizzas and jack o'lantern salads looks so yummy. Your tablescape is as thrilling as a haunted house, but even better...along with the scary lights there is delicious food. Gorgeous! Happy Halloween!

  16. Spookily fantastic! Grace Skelly, LOL! Black, silver and purple lighting -- sooooo effective!

  17. Grace Skelly is such fun, Linda! I love your whimsical table!

  18. Oh wow you have created such a scary table and I love Gracy Skelly and all of the skulls and skeletons! How fun and I love that purple lighting. Looks like you are ready for a Halloween party! Enjoy the week.

  19. Linda, what an classy, enchanting Halloween table --- especially with the purple! And, you sure have made great use of the LED lighting. I have a Skeleton at the Feast table tomorrow, but my Mr. Bones isn't near as classy as your spooktacular gal. Otherwise, why is he bare bones, swinging from the chandelier instead of elegantly dressed and seated at your gorgeous table?

  20. What a fun post Linda. The Skellies are not so scary and add a certain spooky flair to your tablescape. The light adds a very dramatic look so I know Miss Grace was very much impressed. Those serving pieces are fabulous and love the stack topped off with more skellies. F a b u l o u s!!!!!!

  21. How fun! Grace Skelly- how cute! Love the skeletons holding the punch bowl and serving dish and the skeleton plates!

  22. Linda, you make Halloween look so elegant! Those serving pieces are a hoot!!

  23. Linda, this is seriously the best use of purple I've seen in a very long time. I love your cute table!

  24. Grace Skelly looks like the perfect hostess for your Incredible table, Linda!! I love all your accessories to go with your theme. You think of everything!

  25. Linda, I adore Grace Skelly! Too funny!! Your table really is a Halloween delight! You have found some pretty spectacular serving pieces. Your plate stack is spectacular too! The entire table is so creative :) I bet Halloween at your house is a blast!!

  26. The video is a fantastic touch to add to your spooktacular skeleton tablescape. Love the colors and Grace's fascinator ( wink). SO much fun! Pinned and it is a pleasure to be on the hop with you. Hugs!

  27. Princess Grace Skelly is getting the royal treatment at her Halloween party! This is so creative and fun Linda! You really went all out! Love the grapes and figs and all the attention to detail.

    So fun to hop with you this week!

  28. Linda, Grace Skelly is fabulous! I love the video with the haunted house snow globe. Your purple lighting gives everything an eerie glow. You are so clever to put the salad in mini jack-o-lanterns. I may have to look for those skull pans at Target...my daughter would go crazy for the stuffed pizza. It would be a perfect meal before trick or treating. Thanks for the inspiration!

  29. Linda, all those skeletons are amazing. Your purple lighting definitely adds an extra element of drama to the scene. The time you took to design such a dramatic tablescape is evident.
