We are going to have some fun today, the car club is having a costume drive. Before we leave, we are having a Halloween breakfast to set the right mood for the morning. I set the table with some fun Halloween things, starting with a wall hanging that I am using as a table topper. It is a simple panel of Halloween fun to which I added borders, then quilted. The jack-o-lantern on the corner is a wool applique.
I used the green placemats with black plates. DH likes cereal, so I topped off the setting with my pumpkin bowls.
The table decorations include a cute Halloween basket with a scarecrow, filled with fall leaves and silk flowers in fall colors. A ceramic jack-o-lantern smiles at us on the right.
There is a ceramic black cat with a jack-0-lantern on the left.
I scattered a few of the large gold jewels around the table too.
I made a new recipe, Spiced Pumpkin Cake Donuts just to serve this morning.
After breakfast, I am going to don my long blonde wig….
and secure my little dragon to my shoulder on a pad I made for him. I sewed his feet and tail down so I hope he will balance on my shoulder long enough to be effective as a prop. The pad has long tails to tie on the shoulder and arm, and secure across to the other side for stability. After Halloween, I’ll cut the threads and put him on my desk.
Do you know who I going to pretend to be? Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones, mother of Dragons and Queen of Meereen. I’ve read four of the seven novels so far, each one is almost 1000 pages! DH is going as Sherlock Holmes. Normally we do something as a couple, but not this year. We are driving up the Blue Ridge Parkway, so I hope to have some more autumn loveliness to post next week too.
Happy Halloween! Are you planning any Halloween fun?
