Spooky, Kooky, Goofy Witches Hat Tablescape

BOO!  Halloween, the nightmarish evening is fast approaching.   Even though, for some of us whose children are all grown up and trick or treating no longer continues, it is still time for us adults to become playful and mischievous over the Halloween fun.  Perhaps the eagerness is due to all the fun memories of exaggerated costumes, hilarious parties, friendly trick or treat walks through the neighborhood or elaborately creative and decorated foods.  Or it could be that Halloween brings out the child in everyone.  Maybe you feel the same and agree.  So for those of us who seize the moment to have yet another reason to celebrate and have a festive time, Halloween is just about here and it is time to decorate.

Therefore, it is only appropriate to entitle this posting,  'Spooky, Kooky, Goofy Witches Hat Tablescape."  It is one of many mysteriously bewitching tablescapes exhibited by designers in Chloe Crabtree's Halloween Tablescape Blog Hop during this week, Sunday, October 14, 2019 to Friday, October 18, 2019.  Be sure to drum up some courage to view each of the links at the end of this post.



A black polka-dotted tulle bow along with fall leaves, a deep orange mum surrounded by black and white gingham ribbon and black feathers embellish, Whimsy, the witch's velvet hat as the centerpiece of the table.  If you happen to miss the last post, Halloween Fun Ahead, including an introduction to Whimsy, our long lost relative of long ago, go to:  Whimsy, the Witch - Halloween Fun Ahead










I really thought this napkin fold looked exactly like a witch's hat, don't you think?  Of course, what woman can resist a little embellishment to it either?  (The napkin fold instructions are given toward the end of this post.)













Hungry?  How about a spider deviled egg.  They are creamy and have just a bit of heat from red cayenne pepper.  Black olives cut into a spider shape tops each of the eerie but enticing egg appetizer.
















Let's dress things up a bit with a mini witch's hat champagne flute cover including a glittery jack o'lantern straw.  I love all of the delicate polka dot tulle on the mini hats.  Such a fashion statement.




Would a glass of Witch's Brew wine from Door County, Wisconsin which combines both plums and apples quench your thirst?






















And last, some frightfully good mini ghost cakes.  Made with almond paste and topped with a delicate vanilla-almond frosting, these moist cakes make a hair-raising delight as a dessert.






















Are you wondering how to fold your napkin into a cute witch's hat?  The following are the easy steps using a black 18 x 18 napkin for a clear visualization.  Remember to add any kind of fun decoration that you would like.

Step 1:  Use a 18 inch x 18 inch napkin of your choice.




Step 2:  Fold the napkin into your first triangle.




Step 3:  Fold it into a smaller triangle once again.




Step 4;  Now fold one side of the napkin to the center.




Step 5:  And then fold the other side to the center.




Step 6:  Fold one side of the bottom of the napkin out to the side to make the "rim" of the witch's hat.




Step 7:  And last, fold the other side to complete the folding.  It is time to embellish your hat.




To hold the napkin in its place, a decorative clip works beautifully to keep it all together.




Now this witch is well dressed and  ready for some fun.




This witch has a country flair with her black and white buffalo checkered hat.









Time to celebrate at night.

  8. Marsha, you've bewitched me with this whimsical tablescape --- I'm grabbing my broom and heading over! Particularly love the hat-topped flutes --- did you make those too? And that napkin fold is great too! I've been on a napkin-folding binge these days (there's a bone fold on my skeleton table this week). Tucking that one under my black hat, LOL!
