Halloween Table Setting

Today is cloudy and windy here,  So, I thought it would be a perfect day for a cozy Halloween table setting!  Or in this case - a counter setting.

(Please note, this is an old post that I am re-running to join in the Halloween Tablescape Link Party!  That's why the pictures are a bit grainy and you will see my kitchen before the remodel.  Always fun to look back isn't it?!)

Halloween Counter Settings
Since I only have two adorable pumpkin plates, I couldn't set a whole table anyway. So a counter setting it is!

Halloween at the Counter
I really should buy more of these plates since they are so cute.  Maybe I will wait until after Halloween when they go on sale.

Black Candlesticks with orange candles for Halloween
And since Halloween is coming,my favorite candlesticks have come back to haunt me!  (Yes, these are the actual ones from my foyer!)

Halloween wine and sign
And the wine and new sign from my recent gift basket are here to join in the display!

Halloween wine
As you can see by the other side, it is actually a Pinot Grigio.  I bet you were fooled...

Eat Drink and Be Scary sign for Halloween
This time I used a real pumpkin.  I have enough of those fake white ones all over!

Halloween place setting with cork and raffia for napkin holder
I save wine corks now since Pottery Barn and craft stores actually sell them.  I thought they would make cute napkin rings.

Halloween place setting with pumpkin plate
The pumpkin plates are from Pier One.  The place mats are also from Pier One - several years ago.

Amber wine glass for Halloween place setting
I think the wine glasses were from Southern Living At Home.

Halloween place setting at kitchen counter
Yeah, I should buy more of these wine glasses too.  I think I only have four and they work so well with the fall decor.

Counter seats for Halloween counter setting
Come have a seat...

Halloween plates and setting
Now I just need to cook something!

Two Halloween place settings set at counter

Thanks for stopping by to see my
Halloween counter setting!

We actually do eat at the counter when only two of us are home.  Maybe I will set it like this for the kids on Halloween night before they go trick or treating.  Minus the wine of course...

Are you planning any special dinner for Halloween?

  1. Very the pumpkin plates.

  2. Shelley, I love your setting for two. We do that a lot. It must be cloudy and windy everywhere. Same here and cold!

  3. Very pretty! I love the pumpkin plates and all your goodies from your gift basket. I am joining you from Tablescape Thursday today!

  4. We eat at our counter all the time. This is such a nice dinner for 2. Great idea with the corks. I started saving mine too. Your bar chairs are so pretty.

  5. Cute pumpkin plates! I wish I HAD a counter where we could eat sometimes.

  6. I wish I had a counter that we could eat at! I love your "counterscape"!!! I have the same pumpkin plates but not from Pier 1. I forget where I got them. Love the idea of the corks too! XO, Pinky

  7. Beautiful settings...don't you love those chargers? I have them too.

  8. I love pumpkin orange. Your tablescape is very nice :)

  9. Ohhh, what a wonderful Halloween table setting, Shelley!!! Love the pumpkin plates, soooo cute! And the scary sign too!

    Happy fall weekend to you!! ~ Jutta

  10. Your table for two setting is really super, Shelley! The pumpkin plates are very cute and I love the green napkin and cork combo. Most of my wine is the screw top variety, so I'd have to be one of those sad souls who has to buy corks, lol!

    I will be lucky to cram a slice of pizza into my two kids who are still young enough to trick-or-treat on Halloween!

  11. love your table setting!! So festive, and elegant at the same time!

  12. This works for me! Great for when there's just 2 people and you want something fun and festive to celebrate the season! I have those same placemats. Still love them after 3 or 4 years. As for Halloween...nothing special planned. No children at home and the grandchildren live just far enough away that they don't want to make the trip "way out here." That's OK...I'll eat all their candy! :-) Very nice table!

  13. Nice Halloween table. Love those black candle sticks. Nice placemats, centerpiece and glasses.

  14. I really like your creative table settings. I never thought of doing one just for my you just gave me an idea to try! Love those candlesticks with orange candles. I love the deep colors for Halloween and fall. Thank you for joining us!

  15. Lovely Halloween tablescape, I am really loving how you stacked the dishes and what you did with the napkins. You did a great job!
