Just A Halloween Table

Hosted by Susan and Leigh

"Some Cookie Halloween"

New cutters from Walmart

I didn't have any real rhyme or reason for this table, I just played around with the colors and the great buys I found from Ross and Walmart like the cute cookie cutters! I wanted to show them off somehow.

What do you think?

I like this blurry shot, it gave the table an eerie look. "woooooooo!"
Here's what it looks like normal...
An aerial shot of course.
Oh sorry, couldn't hold the camera straight. LOL

Here are the "stars" (get it they're bright like stars?) of the show!

I placed a tealight on top of each kitchen towel inside each cutter. The towels each have a different look (Ross, $4.99 for 3). I used my red Canopy "Cranberry" dinner plates (Walmart, $1 clearance each) and a black denim fabric I also got from Walmart where I got a 50-cent a yard discount because it was the last of the roll...

A pumpkin cutter...
Can't be Halloween without a ghostly form...
No Halloween without a glimpse of a black cat, right?
Or a gravestone for sure.
Heres' another pumpkin for those awesome jack-o's...
And last but not least, a skull form to round out the pack!

Each of the cutters were only $2-3 per set of 3, at Walmart. The tealights were from IKEA, 100 for $2.99 only! And the glasses and the candle holders, I got them from Marshall's and Hobby Lobby, respectively, for a deep discount, too!

Thanks to both our lovely hosts and to all of you for stopping by!

Have yourself a "cookie" Halloween! "mwah-ha-ha-ha!!!" (a bit much?)


  1. Hi Chandy, Yes, you are the queen of bargains! The tealights inside the cookie cutters are very clever. I also like the black fabric for the tablecloth. Kudos to you, you did it again!
