Izzy and Maddie heard something good was brewing here, and they just came right on in with their spidery friend.
Nothing like putting themselves right in the center of things!
Well, since they have barged in, let’s use them for color inspiration. The flatware and plates pick up Maddie and Izzy’s palette
and will serve as chargers for black bowls. Of course, since time is running out for the spooky stems, I can’t resist using them one more time!
The napkin fold is a simple one. A quartered napkin is folded on the diagonal and three corners are turned back for a bit of sauciness.
Put a few gourds into the mix, and these bewitching uninvited ladies are surrounded.
And, what brought them in? They heard cioppino was on the menu. This (recipe here) is a real favorite made with a variety of fish and shellfish, that is perfect for these increasingly cool nights. Maddie and Izzy will have to fight the hubby, however, for their fair share. So will you!
Happy Halloween, everyone!
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

cute table setting!
Cioppino is new to me but it looks delicious. Your table has so much personality.
I guess you will be leaving soon. Bittersweet I know.
For some reason I thought you were in Houston. Your cioppino sounds perfect for the cool Maine weather you must be having now.
I am with Izzy and Maddie, I would gladly come to the party for a bowl of that Cioppino, those two are just precious. Your table is lovely as always! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope you have a great weekend!

I love this tablescape, the girls are wonderful guests, I am not so sure about their spidery friend! I have been lucky enough to share your table when cioppino was on the menu and I can vouch for the fact that it is worth fighting for!
I think your girls would like spending time with the ones who hang around here. They are always wanting something to eat. Looks like they hit the jackpot with this meal. Yum!
Ok, Linda, I’m willing to fight for my share of that!! It looks delicious!!!!!!! I think we should share with the gals, too, as they provided such inspiration for your excellent table setting! Linda
