    1. Thanks so much, Norma! I actually started doing adult tables for Halloween when my kids were small and the adults would get together while the kids ate their candy… 🙂 Now I just think it’s a fun challenge.

  4. Gorgeous, and so elegant. This pushes me to get out of my black and orange Halloween concept. Thank you for sharing the PLUSH PUMPKIN website. Love, love the velvet pumpkins and the adorable acorns. Pinned and shared it so my friends can visit as well.

    Love these gorgeous pumpkins and you sure know how to incorporate them into your very elegant adult table setting for Halloween!

  25. It’s giving a perfect Halloween feel. Amazing decor. Thanks for sharing this post.

  26. Bobbi Duncan says:

    Lory, I love your elegant Halloween setting! I did a very similar one last year, using the same colors as yours because I wanted to get away from the orange and black for an all adult party. Wasn’t sure how it would play out but everyone just loved it. Wish I would have found the mother of pearl chargers…they really pop the settings. I still love the fall colors but this neutral palette just looks so sophisticated for the grown-ups. I love all your amazing tablescapes, Lory. Hugs!

    1. I agree Bobbi! I’m sure I will be doing something with true fall colors very soon, but even then I try to soften it… 🙂 Did you take a photo of your table. Would love to see it.

  27. The black and white transferware dishes are so pretty. I love all the wonderful creations at Plush Pumpkins and would be happy to have some of them in my home.

    1. Thanks, Lauren! I wish those back and white dishes were still easily available. Maybe they’ll bring them back. And yes, the pumpkins are so fun… 🙂

  28. So funny my sister and I were in Pottery Barn last week and saw the skeleton glasses and thought who would use those and now I know Lory would. ha ha
    Cute I mean spooky table!

    1. Haha, that’s funny! I actually preferred the flutes that they had with just the bony hand – not the entire skeleton – but they were out of those.

  29. Beverly Rowntree says:

    I love your elegant style. Your tablescape is gorgeous and unique. Thanks for sharing. ?I pinned the Plush Pumpkins.

    1. Thanks so much, Beverly! It’s the way I approach all the kitschy holidays like July 4th and St. Patrick’s Day, too… 🙂

  30. I haven’t done anything Halloween oriented in years, but if I did you would totally be my go-to for inspiration!

  31. So beautiful and elegant Lory! I love all the details on your beautiful table 🙂

  32. Rhonda Rowland says:

    Wow. Love those goblets. What a beautiful table. It puts me in the fall spirit. Thanks for sharing.

  33. Cheryl King says:

    Visited. Love the Autumn Collection. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  34. Norma Rolader says:

    You are the bomb!!!! I love this Halloween table and mean everything that you have done

  35. Lory, if I had to describe your blog it would be “quiet elegance” You never fail to impress.
    I pinned the pumpkins too.

  36. Karen Cook says:

    The pumpkins are gorgeous — hard to decide on a favorite! Pinned them to Pinterest

  37. The Spicy Citrus Trio would nest perfectly in my antique English scales, which are painted a dark, old green with brass measuring pans! Loved your sophisticated table with the black and white theme.

  38. Vicki Bray says:

  41. Amazing and sooo creative! I can tell you had fun with this Lory! This is the most elegant and sophisticated and fun table setting I have seen, thank you!!

  42. My grandmother had this exact set of silverware. I’m 76 now so I imagine she got them when they first came out. We used them at every holiday. Thanks for the memory.

  43. I don’t do much decorating for Halloween anymore but if I did I would use your table setting for inspiration. It’s not often I see Halloween done well. Usually it looks pretty tacky to me, but you really did a great job making it actually look classy and elegant. Love it!

  44. I love your elegant table setting. You knock it out of the park. Thanks for sharing

    Halloween is one of my most “difficult” holidays for which to decorate as well. This is sophisticated and fun. Love the salad plates..
