a table for Halloween...

Yikes! Two posts in one day. There must be something spooky going on.


I'm not sure when purple and bright green became Halloween colors in addition to the traditional orange and black but I like it.

The bottles were made with labels printed on my computer. The labels were from this generous person who shared them on flicker. So talented! I just used whatever bottles I could find. My daughter found some for me. I also admit to spending too much on a bottle of olive oil for the long skinny black bottle. I love a good olive oil.










Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween!

For other tables, many with a fall or Halloween theme, check out this.
