SPOOKED: A Halloween Dinner

With Halloween just around the corner I went a little overboard this year. While I don't have anyone to take out on the 31st and most of the kids in my neighborhood have grown up and are either in or out of college, the need to decorate should be low on the To Do List.

But it isn't.  I dug out the black plates and the holiday took on a life of it's own.

I started with a napkin. While seeing some of Halloween commercials, I thought about the witches hat and during a long commercial break, I went and got the black napkins and folded one, then another and another until I had enough for the entire table.

Now it was time to go to the store and I found all these wonderful decorations on sale.  The witches hat, needed a pumpkin spray.  This is what I found.

I already had the black plates and the white china.  The placements were hard to find in the number I needed, but eventually I prevailed.

 And how could have set a Halloween table without skulls.  These guys jumped out and I was forced to take them home.

Just a couple more, I said.  At night the candles in the house turn the room to an eerie orange glow.

And finally we were ready for the food.

We're planning to have dinner here on Halloween.  The menu is still under discussion.  Hope you enjoy your time to dress up and collect candy.
