Halloween Tablescape

I'm ready to serve up a scare with my Halloween Tablescape!
Lots of skulls, I think the only thing I could serve at this table would be ribs!
Ribs and wine!
I have been traveling for work a lot lately, looks like it is time to clean up the cobwebs!
and kill the spiders!
I hope I won't scare my friends off!
What's Halloween without some spooky effects!
Eat, Drink and be Scary!

Halloween Mantel-Spooky Fun

Enter if you dare! 
 Welcome to my spooky Halloween Mantel.
This weekend I had a distant cousin visit from across the country, who had never been to my house.  I had to explain to him that I just started my Halloween Mantel early and that this decor is not my usual!  We didn't want him to think we always live with skulls in a jar sitting around.
or eyeballs for that matter!
But we make an exception this time of year.  We even let a few Ravens hang out - I think they like watching football (that is for any Baltimore fans!)
Of course being a long time Cleveland Brown's fan, we are still working on a magic potion for a win.
This maybe key to turning our season around!
So somehow my spooky mantel turned into a football analogy!


So back to Halloween, I will be mixing up a little fun this season!
I hope you get your creep on!!
