Spooktacular Entry Table


I wanted to show you my entry table all ready for fall! Isn't it "Spooktacular"? Remember this post, when you were wondering where all the stuff on my floor was going? Well, here it is!

I love all the black & white & orange I've been seeing this year, and wanted to do a fun entry table for all the little trick-or-treaters!

I added the music sheet pointed trim, and played with different items to come up with this. The "BOO" letters I got at a local store, but most other things are vintage items I'm using in a fun new way!! I just love the old Bingo cards and vintage word flashcards :). The black hand is an old glove mold!

I added a thin layer of "spider webbing" to the mirror, and put a black spider on the chain for a spooky surprise!

Do you like this trick or treat holder? It's an old silver coffee carafe holder! I added a vintage carnival glass bowl to sit inside it and hold the goodies. It reminds me of a little cauldron! :)
But don't be....

I know Halloween isn't until October...
Trick....
or Treat?!!....

Boo to You!

Aren't these letters cute? I got them at a local shop, but you could easily make them with scrap wood blocks and transfer letters or paint on the letters!




I tweaked it a little and added another Bingo card and 13 playing card to this!
I usually only decorate for "fall", this "boo-lite" is as halloween like as it gets around here! :)



Have some fun today!

Wendy--
I bought the black glove form at my city's Flea Market, but they can be found at various flea markets, antiques shops, and check on e-bay also. Keep an eye out! You never know where you might spot one! :)

What a fun display! I love everything in it. The mirror ad the spider on the chain are a great idea. I just discovered your blog from another blogging lady. I am so glad I did. I was wondering if you could tell me wo designed your blog. I need an overhaul and since I made it past 100 posts, I am willing to pay for the new lok. Before I simply payed for 2 different banners and a free background. I am now ready to commit. I love the story of your 2-1/2 yr. old looking for de strength. lol ;D Tammy

It looks great! Love all the black and white. Those bingo and flashcards are fabulous and I love the hand! I'm like you, usually I decorate mostly for fall with just a little Halloween, but I've done more this year because I've seen so many cute ideas in blogland!
