Black Birds Of A Feather Flock Together


After seeing this photo of a table setting in a recent
"People" magazine, I was inspired to copy cat some
of the elements in it for a Halloween display.

I did use the branch with birds, the candlelabra, and lantern
in my table setting but instead of food, I will be offering
Halloween-ish faux libations and morsels.


Take the covers off of old thrift store books to use them as stands/elevators for your props.



The product that looks like ice in "Night Crawler" jar the above picture is actually those 
beads that expand in water that you can find in the floral section at craft stores.

Did you know that those items that "grow" when you put them in water take a WEEK to fully expand?

Michaels has a good variety of black birds for sale in the Fall. 







All the imbibing of the "Bat Juice" and "Mysterious Elixer"
will be under the watchful eyes of the old folks
(who look like they might get a little crazy too after
the sun goes down).
These are those funny portraits from Michaels that change
 from sedate to  scary as you walk past them.

Here is the sweet little old lady from one direction... 

...walk past her and she changes into this:

Hope you get all treats and no tricks!

I love your display! I did something similar this year and called it my 'autopsy hutch'. So cute!

Kathy said...

What a devine setting, it has all my favorite subjects, crows, spiders and skulls....oh my. I love your collection of halloween, I see we are kindred sisters. Halloween is my favorite time to decorate. This was the first year in blogging so I really enjoyed featuring halloween. I love the idea of the display on your table, mine was on my porch, it takes up so much room I plan on moving it next year. Drop by my site for some treats Kathy
