Witches’ Brew Halloween Tablescape

 Ravens are calling all Witches~

There’s a Special Potion Brewing for You. . .


I fell under the spell of this Witch’s Hat at HomeGoods . . .

 I suspect it’s all this Black Cat’s fault~

Before I knew it~ I was scaring up spiders, ravens, & some munchkin pumpkins for a centerpiece & waving my wand in the kitchen to whip up some cupcakes for some Halloween fun~

I cast about Tuesday Morning a couple of weeks ago~ and with a bit of magick spied these plastic spoons~ perfect for spelling some chocolate from candy melts~ microwavable with no cauldron required. . .

 Bat Fangs add a sweet Bite to your Witches’ Blend~~ Extra Sharp & 100% Organic. . .

Labels were easily conjured courtesy of Martha Stewart and the aisles of Michaels~

This Witches’ Blend is known to have a bone chilling effect. . .

Choose your Halloween sprinkles wisely. . . custom blending your stirring spoon for the right Spell for your Potion!

Chocolate Stirring Spoons were inspired by spoons found via Pinterest here.

Add some Eye of Newt. . .

Stir in some Brains of Cawing Ravens~ if you dare. . .

My assorted tea cups and tea pots last used here, never thought they would be party to such wicked elixir~

Scrapbooking letters & paper~ framed by a wreath~ designate your parking area. . .

 Don’t forget to anoint your temples and Third Eye with a small amount of the flying ointment to prevent a bumpy ride. . .

On the night of the Full Moon pluck two feathers from a Raven’s wing~  place under your hat for good measure~

Potions should be mixed & served with Extreme Caution. . .

Always stir in a clockwise direction just until it starts to bubble~ then immediately stir counter-clockwise~~

These witchy hands had me in their evil clutches from the moment I spied them at Target. Fortunately, like me they are happier with a cupcake in their hand. . .

Cupcakes topped with a Witch Hat~ inspiration provided by Southern Living here.

Witch Hats~ frightfully easy with Oreo Fudge Cream Cookies and Hersey’s Kisses~ a bit of orange icing seals their fate and the peanut butter & fudge is a deadly combination, for me anyway.

Happy Flying!

    I want to come to THIS party! You need some sister witches sipping, nibbling & being ‘witchy! Love this…A

    Love your theme for this table. Those hats on the cupcakes are bewitching!
    My hat is off to you!

    So many cute ideas!Thank you~

    My broom flew off track leaving Lubbock yesterday.. the 8,000 foot tall dust cloud put flying on hold.. or I would have arrived. Certainly would have parked it in the witch’s lot! Love the hat.. what a cutie. Your treats are so darling too. It’s just a great table.. congrats! xo marlis

    Wow….there are about a billion and one different little details here!!! This is great! The Ralph Lauren “Sophia” plates are just beautiful, and they really add a “grown-up” look to the table. All of the fabulous Halloween items…I just can’t get over it! The little chocolate witch hats on the cupcakes are cute, cute, cute! Love the hands holding the cupcakes, too. The expression on the cat’s face is creepy…wouldn’t want to wake up and see him next to my bed! The photography is really great…vivid color that makes everything look that much prettier/scarier!

  6. October 18, 2011 at 10:49 am

    Oh, I love this fun table. It’s such a nice blend of quality/proper settings (dishes, tea cups) mixed in with fun, childish stuff. And I love the sprinkles on the chocolate-covered spoons–what a clever idea that can be adapted to so many settings!! Thanks for sharing that! Funny thing: I had to go back and look at the “Witch’s Blend” label…I thought the “W” was a “B”…LOL Can you see how I would’ve been confused? :)

    • October 18, 2011 at 12:02 pm

      Yes it was GLARINGLY obvious AFTER I edited my photos~ I’ll have to talk to Martha about changing her halloween beverage font :)

  7. October 18, 2011 at 11:10 am

    This is definitely my favorite Halloween tablescape! LOVE all the imaginative touches, and the treats look yummy (of course, I never met a cupcake I didn’t like!). I like that you used such dainty cups and saucers to lure the victim in, and the green napkins complement the orange and purple so well! I’m completely bewitched! :)

  8. October 18, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Mary, you are making me long for more time to play with my Halloween things. This table is full of clever ideas and wonderful inspiration. If only I had the time! Love the chocolate spoons, witches hat centerpiece, and the broom parking sign. I’ll be smiling all day just thinking about this post. ~ Sarah

  9. October 18, 2011 at 11:55 am

    Let Elle & I park our broom in your adorable parking spot as we’d love to join you & the fur girls for tea! Those spoons are adorable. I have seen them for other holidays too & always love the idea. AND the witch hat candies… 2CUTE! I also love your planter all done up with the Halloween colors. Adorable tablescape as always. Thanks for having us. Cheers!

  10. October 18, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    Too clever…..This is another I have to share with my Halloween crazy niece in Greensboro…….

    I would need an extra ‘props’ room in my little house just to store all the neat accessories you come up with for your tablescapes, Mary!

  11. October 18, 2011 at 3:27 pm

    Oh my word, this is just the cutest thing. I love it all. The witches hat is so cute and all the pumpkins, potions and accessories are just unreal. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

    You have OUTDONE yourself! I just kept scrolling and scrolling and scrolling and never running out of delights. I’m so glad you linked that pinterest thing for the spoons. I’m just getting started saving recipes on pinterest. I would love those directions.

    Usually, your tables are so romantic looking and elegant to me. These Halloween tables show such a whimsical side of you. I have really enjoyed them! (But now… love the romantic and elegant ones too…)

  21. October 20, 2011 at 1:16 am

  31. October 22, 2011 at 8:06 pm

    Such a very fun table, and your teacups are beautiful! I made chocolate stirring spoons one Christmas with a friend! Great for coffee or hot chocolate!

  32. October 22, 2011 at 8:16 pm

    This Witch is casting all spells aside and on her way. My broom is set for warp speed to get there before all the potion is consumed. LOL This looks like THE BEST party of the season. Yummy little eye of newt, ravan’s brains and tea in beautiful little magic cups.
    So entrancing. See you in a flash. :)

  33. October 22, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    I love that your witches like to use your lovely delicate china cups and saucers…a wonderful, charming design. Thank you for inviting us to the party. Cherry Kay

    Bravo~Bravo!! I’m giving you a STANDING ovation for this wonderfully creative table, Mary! Every inch, every item, every pun is so delightfully done. I’m in awe, truly.

    I’ve missed being able to get online to visit & comment on all your beautiful tables recently, but rest assured I saw them in my email on that tiny, crappy little laptop screen that I had to use while my desktop was being repaired.

    Nice to be back & able to *see* what you’re up to!

    Oh my heavens! ..and oh my gracious what a superb delight! THIS IS what my idea and memory of Halloween and autumn is all about! The coolest of decorations, what a table…my daughter would so love even more than me to have those cupcake or little pumpkin holders! Too wonderful! …and what a great idea (and chocolate yummy) witch’s hat! So cool, I just can’t find enough words to tell you how much I enjoyed that look into coolness! Thank you!!!!

  55. October 27, 2011 at 11:37 am

    What a beautiful Halloween decoration ! When I see this I regret that in Belgium it’s not very much celebrated. It just started to move in a few years ago, but only kids celebrate, but they don’t go for trick and treat. Maybe this will all come over in the next years !

  56. October 27, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    Boy, you sure know how to make Halloween look appealing! Just great!!


  57. October 27, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    well done…from an avowed and certified Halloween slacker!!

  58. October 27, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    I love it! The hands holding the cupcakes are great! I love that you added china tea cups and saucers to the mix!

  59. October 27, 2011 at 8:14 pm

    Oh, I am so in love with this table! I just love the chocolate stirring spoons and that amazing cupcake! Mmm… Such a fun table for Halloween :)

  60. October 28, 2011 at 2:08 pm

    Gosh — I wish I could set a table like that. BEAUTIFUL and spooky, too. :)

  61. October 29, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Oh Mary I have not seen this post and I thought I had gone through your whole blog. I hadn’t started blogging or was really into blogging yet this time last year. Love all your creative ideas. So many I want to use this year!!! N.

    PS I look at my little blog after seeing yours and I’m embarrassed how amatuerish mine is. Hopefully over time it can measure up to the high standards that I see in yours. Of coursse I’ll have to get a fabulous camera, place on a lake, a green thumb and your sense of style to name just a few…… lol…. but I think it would be worth it all. You are one of my mentors dear. Thankyou!
