    This is the cat’s MEOWVELOUS! Oh, how I love seeing your tables, Mary. You have so many little things that make the creative cat synergy here – from those tiny tins to the tiered tray (love the boas and candy corn garland!) to the plates, the textiles (love those layers!), the straws and napkin rings (I totally missed those at MC!) and even the candy (pixie sticks were a fave of mine as a kid). You truly are an artist. And I love being on the broom dock with you on this hop!

    Oh My! Mary! You have curated the spookiest black cat table!! You find the cutest items to bring your tables so much detail. All of those vintage cats remind me of my childhood days of Trick or Treat! where you were doomed if a black cat crossed your path!! Love it all!! It is always a pleasure hopping with you. Wishing you a fun Halloween full of extra special treats!

    Your black cat theme is so much fun Mary! I love all the vintage looking tins, candies, and other things that you’ve combined into wonderful place settings and the tiered tray full of goodies! The black boas are great and the cat tail lollipops, too cute! I knew you would wow us today, and I know the Black Hat Society is giggling with witchy glee at your fun and fabulous table!

    Mary, I always look forward to your annual Halloween table with great anticipation — full of sweet treats and clever table setting tricks! Definitely the cat’s meow lol! My husband is lucky I’m couch-bound or I’d be dashing off to Walmart for those cat mugs and Michaels for embellishments. I especially like the vintage-look Halloween countdown. Love all the retro style candy favor treats. Hope you have a wonderful Halloween.

    Hello Mary,
    I always look forward to your posts, no matter the season or Holliday.
    You have treated us to the cats meow of a tablescape, so many extraordinary details that I have to take several looks. Just the right mix of spooky combined with fun, color and of course a dash of mischief. Such a creative 3-tiered tray! LOVE!
    Happy Halloween!

    Mary, I love the cat theme to your tablescape. They all have that real Halloween vintage theme, from the cat mug , the calendar sign, tins, napkin rings and everything else. Love the witches broom too. The tricks look so yummy too. Your table is always so playful. I love your mixture of patterns and textures. Great for children and some of us child-like adults. Have a great Halloween.
