Spooky Cat Halloween Table

Happy Halloween! Now, you will need all of the luck you can get on this Halloween night as there is a table full of black cats crossing your path!
 Scary cat is arched up with all of the hairs on her back puffed up to say "BOO!"  The cat is made by Steiff and is a reproduction from the original design 113 years ago! This year she is the centerpiece of the Halloween table! 
 I bought these new purple glitter candles this year that I knew would look fantastic with the MK courtly check! The candles are the color lilac and are from Oak Forest Candles.
I had a whole bunch of spooky ghosts leftover from my Spook Ghost Hot Chocolate as my husband and I could not eat them all.  
So, I came up with the idea to use them as name card holders!!  I simply designed some name tags and printed them off. Then, I taped them to a tooth pick and stuck the tooth pick into the meringue! It held splendidly! You will notice two different graphics - a creepy cat and a skull and cross bones. Those images are from Vintage Graphics Fairy.  (For Twilight fans you will notice some familiar names on the name tags...)

I liked this picture below... you can see the bats flying around the window!
 At both ends of the table there are scary kittens!  I am not sick of the velvet pumpkins yet!  I love how vibrant their colors are!

 The black cat cried aloud to the moon, 
From where she could not be seen,
But from the sound of the lonesome tune,
We knew it was Halloween!

Christmas, White House china, and more! Five on Friday

I don't know about you guys but I am EXHAUSTED this week. TGIF.  I have been working like a mad dog and today is my 9th day of work in a row! I finally have a full weekend to rest now!

White House China
I was perusing some pictures of the White House State Dinner this week and I was studying their table settings when I noticed something... I have the same pink goblets!
Do you see the pink goblet just above the knives?
