Candlelight Supper: Halloween Tea For One???

Halloween Tea For One???

I was setting up a tea table for my pumpkin friend & someone literally flew in and tried to steal the show!  We'll have to wait and see who it is, for a moment!
                                                                        If you click on the photo's they will enlarge for a better view.

My little tea for one.  With a pumpkin tea pot and bat cozy.  Set on a tray with his favorite hot chocolate and "Hostess" orange flavored cupcake.  A little polka-dot bat wing napkin.

Sitting on a little round garden bench with canopy.  This bench sits in my garden.  It needed to be re-painted.  I used a black paint then every other circular ring on the seat I painted a contrasting white.  For Spring I will paint it a permanent color of either pink, lavender, or a reddish-pink watermelon color.  The bench is all metal.  I have enjoyed decorating the canopy with flowers, fabric, and ribbons in the past. 

I had a Contorted Filbert or "Harry Lauder's Walking Stick" shrub.  It was too hot where it was planted and didn't make it.   I sprayed it with black paint and use it for a Halloween prop.

I have been decorating pumpkins this year.  For this one.  I wrapped it with Bat ribbon.  I then gathered some black and white striped ribbon and topped it with a new stem.  The stem is a finial from PB.  I found it at a PB tent sale for fifty cents.  I love using finials to replace the faux pumpkins stems. 

    I had to include my little "Steampunk" pumpkin.

On No!  Oh No!  An uninvited guest has just flown in.  I don't think pumpkin man will be happy.  

Around the top of the canopy I wrapped both a Halloween and Fall garland.  I used a spider garland that had jewels on it as well.

My Scarecrow doesn't look all the "jazzed" to be having an uninvited Witch just "drop" on in.  So he ordered me to put a canopy over him for some privacy.

Thanks for looking!  Please feel free to leave a comment below.

Ha! Love this Valerie! What a cute tea table! I think you may have to set an extra place because your uninvited guest might get a bit testy and cast a spell! Eeeek! ;)
Such an awesome idea painting the Walking Stick shrub for Halloween before you have to remove it. You are so creative, I love it all!
