Pumpkins on Black and White Halloween Tablescape

When my son Rick got his new camera I asked him if he would take some pictures of one of my tablescapes for me.  A good camera makes all of the difference when taking indoor pictures under low light conditions.

I had already set up a black and white tablescape for Sunday morning but it was not quite finished.  I needed to go shopping for a few things for dinner and did not get home until about 2:30.  Well the boys beat me home and had already started a photo shoot.  So a few of the pictures will have some differences in the way they look.

Below you will see one of the more complete pictures.  The pumpkin salad plates came from Walmart this year.  I thought they were really cute.  They are set on a plain generic black dinner plate and a plain generic white charger.  Below the generic charger is a blackish leather charger that I found at Goodwill this week.

The table covering came from a remnant at JoAnn's.

The flatware,  wine glasses,  and the black oblong plates (with the little boo pumpkins on them) all came from Marc's my favorite close out store (and so much more).

The orange pumpkin plates break up all of the black and white rather nicely don't you think?

The napkins and the orange and gold napkin rings were found at our Volunteers of America store about a mile from the house.  They have some of the nicest napkin rings and napkins you can hope to find at a thrift store.

The large candle holders were bought at Goodwill a couple of weeks ago.  The candles are from our Marc's store.  The blackbirds have been collected through the years. The black side dishes were also a Goodwill find.

I found the copper pumpkins on the chair at Marc's too (I love the copper pumpkins).

I will be posting pictures on my Halloween tree over the weekend.  Hope to see you there! and remember to: Thrift on Ladies, Thrift on !!! Have a wonderful week, keep safe, and keep happy.
Thank you to my son Rick for your fantastic pictures.
Love you,

  1. Oh I love this one too - love love love those pumpkin plates. No matter how many dishes I have, I still find more that I would love to have. Great photos!!

  2. I really understand that one. I find it very difficult to not buy a pretty set of plates. I have to keep telling myself to not buy any more, but they (the dishes) just keep jumping into cart.

    My son Rick did the photography for this post. I think he did a beautiful Job!!


  3. Oh my goodness! This is an absolutely gorgeous Halloween tablescape! You gotta link it up to more parties! Rick did an awesome job taking the pictures from various it! There are so many elements in this tablescape, I don't know where to start:) Absolutely Wow! those pumpkin salad plates are sooo perfect and pretty...I think I need to stop by at our Walmart! The decorated sideboard creates a beautiful backdrop for your tablescape and I love how you created height in your tablescape with those candle holders! Love the blackbirds...nice accent throughout! Beautifully done, Candy! Happily following you through GFC! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Poppy

  4. How fun! I love the fabric you used for the tablecloth. It's perfect for Halloween! Thanks for visiting my post about my sewing obsession. I was thinking about that, if I would later become obsessed with something else...but if I do that's fine because it will make me happy too! Have a great evening!

  5. Hi lovely lady.
    Your Tablescape for Halloween is Gorgeous!! I also so love all your plates we tablescapers never have too many dishes.. I get most of my dishes from Ross or the dollar store. Im your newest follower on your blog now. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my new Tablescape.

  6. WOW you covered it all!! I love those pumpkin plates! and you paid attention to every detail!

  7. Beautiful pictures and table. I love the colors....Christine

  8. Your table is so pretty and ready for Halloween! I have those pumpkin dishes, too, and will be using them next week. I'm looking forward to reading about your Halloween Tree soon!

  9. Really cool table! I think the fabric makes a perfect base for this tablescape with the black dishes and stems. This table really sets the mood for a fun evening!

  10. You've set a pretty Halloween table, everything looks fun and festive!

  11. Apparently I need to start shopping the fabric remnants if there is cool fabric like this available! I love all the elements of your tablescape and how beautifully you've used your collected items.

  12. I love the tablecloth you made! Joann's is opening in my town in 2 weeks and I am so excited!!! I love those pumpkin plates. I bought mine last year at Walmart and I thought this year's were cuter (but I really don't need more!) I got the red stemware you commented on at a while back. They were very reasonably priced back then. Good luck with your search!

  13. Love everything about this table: the remnant as a tablecloth (I need to go to a fabric store and do the same thing!), the dishes (the pumpkin plates are beautiful!),actually everything came together sooo well!! Bravo! Rosie at The Magic Hutch

  14. Those pumpkin salad plates are wonderful! I like how they pop on your delightful table!
