Midnight Pastoral

At first glance, this 'scape appears to be yet another lovely showcase for the HLCCA's Retro Red Stripe Fiesta dinnerware, this time using a red, ivory and black on toile theme to celebrate the newly released rice bowls.

Upon closer inspection, something seems to be a little off. For example, what's in that centerpiece?

Could it be burrs?

Who would want burrs on their tabletop? Why skeletons out for a little midnight revelry, that's who!

We're peering in on the skeleton's table, where candles bleed....

...and bones hold your napkin!

This toile is called Midnight Pastoral. I think that makes a great name for this tablescape!

I'm sharing this Halloween fun for Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Through Life.


  1. I LOVE that fabric! and as usual, it all looks awesome!

  2. That is just too cute!! I love the toile!! And of course I love the dinnerware. Love the black and red combo! Thanks for stopping by:-)

  3. The fabric is AWESOME, D! and the burrs were inspired!

    can't say enough good things about those rice bowls....especially in Retro Red Stripe

  4. Love the black and red. The dishes are wonderful and the toile is one of my favorites. So perfect together. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
