The witching hour is almost here and I couldn’t resist having a little spooky fun at the table . . .
Halloween is just 3 scary days away until I have to pack up my cauldron and broom for another year!
(insert *cackle* here <|;>)
I ran across these Vintage Beistle Halloween decorations, reproduced from The Beistle Company’s archives of original Halloween designs and party goods, from the 1930’s to 50’s.
These spooktacular retro images of witches, black cats and classic smiling moon from the 1950’s, provided some vintage Halloween table inspiration.
Crackled glass and smoky rimmed plates were found at HomeGoods, a favorite haunt. To conjure Halloween plates, I layered the cutouts between the clear plate and a white charger, to show off the festive orange and black Halloween graphics.
The crackled textured plate protects the cutouts while lending a spooky effect for some vintage Halloween fun!
A reproduction 1930’s Beistle tissue centerpiece with a smiling moon and quintessential scared black cat is perched on top of a set of two stacked checked and plaid metal tins.
The tins are wrapped with some black twisted vines and pinned with vintage-inspired postcards wishing you a ‘Merry Halloween’ and for a little ‘Boo’!
Black and orange glitter bottlebrush trees add a little Halloween magic and sparkle. . .
And black cat and smiling Jack figurines were conjured from the aisles at Walmart a few weeks ago.
Don’t look now, but we’re surrounded by a murder of crows, perched on pumpkins and lurking in the mums. . .
When witches go riding, and black cats are seen, the moon laughs and whispers,‘tis near Halloween!
