Happy Hallow-Queens Party

Hello my friends.   You are invited to my Hallow-Queens party. We like to think of ourselves as royalty and why not wear the crown. Many thanks to Rita from Panoply for organizing this Halloween Blog Hop. You will find the links from the multi-talented bloggers participating in this Halloween Blog Hop at the bottom of this post.  Have fun and enjoy the creativity.

As some of you know, I do love my bling and also a dramatic table.  The LED lighting really adds a lovely  ambiance to a table.

We have to use our royal glassware.  Gold goblets plus tall black goblets with a gold crown.  Gold flatware completes the royal look of this table. The chargers are black with gold trim.
Let the feast begin my royal guests.

The centerpiece is a Scalloped Tray rise I bought from Decor Steals. They came in a set of two. I added plums, pomegranates, purple grapes and some purple chrysanthemums.

This is a picture of the scalloped tray riser without the fruit.

Even Grace Skelly attended this party! I love her smile!  She is wearing a velvet jacket.

I feel the purple is so majestic.

Under each skull, is a black salad plate with a  gold skull followed by a purple and gold plate, and then a scrolled golds glass dinner plate.

Our skellies are holding the royal treats for each guest.  Rich dark chocolates with cherry and Dark Chocolate Bon Bons sit in a crown party favor bag.  The stands come off to also use as  mini cupcake holder.
There are so fun!  I bought them from Amazon to use as party favors.

The skulls I added some distressed ink to give them an eerie look, instead of white. I also added clear glass accent gems to the eyes, so the  LED lights  would shine through the eyes. 

I am using different crowns with LED puck lights inside. Skeleton finger napkin rings hold each purple napkin. Nothing but the best for my royal guests.  A shimmering gold tablecloth  adds flair to this party.
a play on spelling.....ha ha.

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. Grace Skelly has a smile to die for Linda! What a spooktacular table for your royal guests with your crown goblets, purple lighting, runner and sequin tablecloth! Love your plate stack and the skeleton crew hauling the crown bag party favors with chocolates! They must be bone tired supporting that tray. ,-) As always it’s a treat to have a virtual seat at your table. Happy Haunting ♥

  2. Linda your tables are always delightful and I like the purple color but what else would I expect from you? Lovely as usual. How clever of you to dress up the skulls, I was wondering where you found them; but I liked your touches to them better than anything found in a store. Your guest at the head of the table is certainly distinguished, though she is a little long in the tooth. She has been waiting a long time for her dinner on the lovely plate stack. And you are known for your bling and it is certainly on this table. Happy Halloween my friend.

  3. Greetings Linda! It's so nice to see Grace Skelly at your table having some fun. (but I think she's been dieting a little too long... don't tell her I said that) Everything looks so amazing as usual!! I can just imagine your guests in their favorite costumes dining and telling spooky tales. Thanks for giving us a glimpse into home and showing us the creative ways we can decorate, Sometimes with just the things we have around the house used in a different way. Have a fun spooky season Linda!! Blessings, Edie Marie

  4. A movie set! Worthy of a movie set Linda:)

  5. Wow, Linda! VERY creeptastic....I can't believe how the skulls light up! Such a cute idea with the crowns...of course you would think of that! :D The skeleton napkin rings are super cute, and of course I love the gold sequined tablecloth: Perfect for your queenly guests! Oh, and I also love the goblet party favors. There are so many cute ideas on this table I'm sure I'll steal, I mean, borrow! Happy Halloween!!!

  6. I love the elegant black and purple colour scheme, the skulls with their LED eyeballs, and the profusion of gold crowns. And Grace Skelly is a scream!

  7. Love this Linda. Love Grace Skelly. You never disappoint with your table settings. Love the skeleton tray and favors. Have a great new week. xoxo

  8. Linda, Grace Skelly dressed in her Royal velvet looks quite regal as she presides over her royal table! The skulls with their added jeweled eyes and lighting are creepy resting on top of the black salad plates with their gold skulls. The purple details add more royal accents to your creative and entertaining table. You always add the glitz and glam which I love. It is always a treat to hop with you!

  9. This is just too fun Linda! I love Grace Skelly! Adding the jewels to reflect the light is the perfect touch. The skeleton tray is adorable and the napkin rings... so cute. The detail is amazing and I always love the "bling" you add to your tablescapes. Thank you! Such a fun visit!

  10. Linda, your spooktacular and eerily elegant table is just divine my dear! So many wonderful, skeletal details — you know how I love a skeleton theme table and decorated chandelier! What you did with the coloring and interior lights of the skulls in other worldly. No one used LEDs to greater effect than you! As the self-proclaimed Queen of Theme, I am green (with envy) of the crown table favors — OMG, I can’t get to Amazon fast enough to get me some! I will have to share the Queenly title going forward with you!

  11. Everything looks amazing, Linda! You've really outdone yourself and everyone else on this one! So much fun and elegance combine!

  16. Linda, you really outdid yourself with this marvelous table. Tons of bling, skeletons with blazing eyes, and the centerpiece using pomegranates, grapes, plums and mums is striking. I will need to remember the last when planning a table.

Grace Shelly is dressed to the nines, appropriately so for this fabulous setting!! Wonderful table!! It is always such a pleasure to hop with you❤️Have a fun Halloween!🎃

  23. This is so great, Linda. You've gotten so much mileage out of those puck lights! I'm glad you explained how you made them so effective in the skulls - brilliant (literally!). Your stash of cool finds - the napkin rings, the crown cupcake/treat holders, not to mention the skulls - make for a perfect girls night party, all added to your already glam inventory of the basic table elements. Thanks so much for bringing your creative style to yet another tablescape hop. It's magical.

  24. Elegantly creepy! Grace Skelly - lol!

  25. Oh my word, Linda, how do you do all this?? Your table is hauntingly elegant and fun!! I would love to be a guest and see all this in person!! You’re so creative!!

  26. Love your purple! Linda, you never cease to amaze me with your glam and bling styling. Always creative and different.

  27. I love this Halloween tablescape you created Linda. It looks scary but elegant at the same time. I love Grace Skelly sitting at the head of the table. The place settings looks cool with the skeleton heads. The black, gold, and purple color scheme looks great. It's perfect for a Halloween party!

  28. Linda, what a classy and elegant tablescape with plenty of royalty and bling. I love all of the details and creativity you put into this tablescape, including the lit skulls with jeweled eyes and crowns that glow. It is perfect with your purple accents in your candles. The skeleton serving tray is so awesome along with the yummy party favors in the crown containers. And Grace is all dressed up to attend. She even put on her best pearls. I felt like royalty myself touring this exquisite table. I know everyone must have a great time at this glamorous table.

  29. I am all about the bling and Grace Skelly is definitely dressed to kill and she looks very regal. Love that riser, I'm always looking for something to elevate my center display. Creepy, cool and elegant, this is a gorgeous table. Happy Halloween!

Purple, black and gold is a striking color combination! The lighted skulls at each place setting really take things up a notch. Grace Skelly looks like she's having a wonderful time! It's always fun to hop with you. Happy Halloween!

  32. Linda I would love to have a seat at your royally spooky table! Your plate stack is equally stunning and spooky at the same time! I love how you have used trays of purple fruits as a centrepiece too! Your glittery gold tablecloth is the perfect backdrop for your regal party!

  33. Wow Linda, you outdid yourself! Love all of the extra elements you’ve included. The centerpiece is wonderful, love the colors of fruits you chose! Those skellies holding the tray are the coolest and of course I love love the lighted skeleton heads! What a fun table to be sitting at for Halloween!
