white tablescapeI liked  last week’s assortment of whites, so I thought, why not use them again, tweaking here and there to give a different look.

  1. This table has such a dramatic impact. I do love the way you made the white pumpkins the stars of the table. Also, love those cute black glasses with the spider webs!

  2. I love all your wonderful scaries…love the wonderful white pumpkins with the great stems…love the black and do love those Ikea Plates, they are wonderful and love those glasses…thanks for sharing your spooky, scary, chic and glamerous table…

  3. Great idea, Linda, in using the white pumpkins for another variation. My favorite part is how you turned the placemats vertically. The spooky stemware is elegant with the black Ikea plates. I love the accordion napkin fold, too.

  4. Somehow, I missed the first table with this darling white centerpiece. So glad I didn’t miss this, it was a 2 for 1 treat with this beautiful dramatic table. It is perfect for this Halloween season, but so much more elegant that most Halloween tables. Dianne

  5. Wow! Such a dramatic tablescape! I love the play of black and white on your table…especially those black spider web stemware…how adorable! My favorite is the assortment of white pumpkins used as centerpiece…absolutely gorgeous! Beautiful job! Happy weekend! Hugs, Poppy
