Halloween Tablescape and Decor

The sun is out today and it is a much-welcome change from the rain we have had for the last five days.  I did a little bit of Halloween and fall decorating that I thought I would share.  So without further ado, welcome!
Fall wreaths are challenging on my door, because most of the colors do not show up very well.  I brought in some reds and bright oranges which helped.
The crow and spider add a touch of whimsy...
A black and silver skull arrangement and mercury glass pumpkins welcome guests in the foyer.
The dining room table gets a new runner from Marshalls and
 a couple of new pumpkins from Pier 1.
I can't always take this decorating stuff too seriously, so when I saw these legs with fishnet hose and leopard shoes, I just knew they were coming home with me.  
Don't know if you can see it, but there's a grapevine wreath behind the legs.  The Bad Witch sign sits on top of a little pumpkin.  I added tiny rice lights.  To the left, is my collection of spirits, and to the right is another mercury glass pumpkin on a silver tray.  The battery-operated lights in the silver candlesticks flicker with an orange glow.
A jack-o-lantern is added to a silver bud vase on the server.
A few touches of fall are added to the chest in the dining room.
Flying bats grace the powder room along with
fun fingertip towels.
A scary Halloween tree sits on the island.  It was the only place that was large enough to accomodate it!
 This was a fun project to make.  I used a branch from a tree in the yard spray painted black,
 and I added skulls, spiders, flying bats,
a large sparkly spider web (Michaels), crows, and lots of hanging moss.  
My friend, James, is serving up lots of eyeballs.
A few fun items on a little tray sit on the kitchen counter.
A fall arrangement along with Pottery Barn pumpkins are displayed on the cocktail table.
The mantle is simple in design with just a couple of white pumpkins added to books and tall candleholders, with an pumpkin garland draped over.
I found these cute pillows at a gift shop.
A little haunted house sits on my wet bar with a few scary creatures stirring about.
This witchy woman is the featured attraction on the table.
She is ready for trick or treating!
Starting with a lacy runner from Home Goods, I then used a silver bride's basket full of gourds, pumpkins, and leaves for the centerpiece, and used an orange and grapevine pumpkins to balance the taller pieces.
I found these cute witch bowls at an estate sale, but I'm pretty sure they were originally from Home Goods or TJ Maxx.
I believe these black goblets came from Macy's.
No need to polish the silver for Halloween, I'll wait and do that for Christmas!!

What's Halloween without candy corn??
Happy Halloween!!
