Double, Double Tablescape Trouble

The witches' breakfast~

Vintage Riviera dinnerware, Moderntone sherberts, a vintage Fiesta sweets comport in ivory, Oneida flatware and a contemporary black tablecloth and napkins help the witches get their big day off to the right start. Did you know that candy corn is the fuel for their midnight rides?

A spooky supper~

Placesettings of Post-86 Fiesta dinnerware in heather, black and persimmon are the perfect treat after a night of tricks. The tabletop also includes special Halloween flatware, some favorite spiderweb napkings and haunted house placemats from last year, glassware from Pier One and yesterday's find of skeletal hand napkin rings.

I'm sharing this hauntingly good tabletop fun for Seasonal Sunday at The Tablescaper.

Happy Haunting!


  1. Happy Halloween Daphne! Cute settings, lovin' the display shelf in the last shot:@)

  2. Oh my gosh Daphne! Witches on the Riviera are just too cute. Very sweet and sinister at the same time. LOL

    And your dinner table is just so elegant! I'm not a fan of Heather, but I will say that this is the first time I've seen a setting where it really works and is the star of the table! Such pretty things, love the napkins and the placemats ..... and those skeleton hands .... YIKES!!

    Superb results!


    PS I just went back and looked and I think I figured it out. The gray in the placemats is what is bringing out the beauty of the Heather plates. Brilliant!

  3. You have the best accessories! I'm trying to get a table done today, but I think I've lost my edge! Excellent work!

  4. What a fun Halloween table for the witches!

  5. Daphne, I just popped over from Candy's Little Round Table. I'm happy to find you and have added you to my blog roll. What a fun table! I'm off to see more of your past posts.
    Happy Halloween! ~ Sarah

  6. Daphne, both your table settings look great. The Riviera witches are so cool. And I really like the way you used heather for the dinner setting.

  7. Thanks for stopping by, friends! A special welcome to Sarah on your first visit to the table.

    Candy, great observation about the heather on gray...I did find heather much easier to photograph than usual!

    I hope you've all had lots of treats tonight!

  8. Hi Daphne...

    What fun and festive halloween tablescapes, my friend! I loved all the mixing and matching of the pretty yellow and orange dishes on your "Witches Breakfast"! And your halloween dinner table is fabulous! Those are great halloween those! I also really liked how you did your pretty centerpiece! I would have never thought to use the peacock feathers for anything "halloween"...they're so pretty! Thanks for sharing your pretty halloween tables with us for Sunday Favorites!!!

    Warmest autumn wishes,
    Chari @Happy To Design

    PS...I read your note requesting to remove this link from the SF party but I hated to do that! Loved your tablescapes!!! No worries, my friend!

  9. I love your Fiestaware! I'm a new collector and I used mine this Halloween too. (Please visit) Your napkin rings are fun! Great table.

  10. Oh what a fun tablescapes! I'm certainly going to make note and file these away for inspiration in the future. :)

  11. Daphne,
    I've looked high and low for a couple of years, trying to find Halloween flatware. Can you tell me where you got yours? What is the maker and the pattern?
    Thank you,

  12. Hi Denise.

    This Halloween flatware came from Homegoods. Good luck in your search!
