Orange and Blue.
After temporarily throwing my leaf garland over the top of the blue cabinet I noticed something...
that I love the colors orange and blue together.
And I knew instantly that I was going to make changes in the dining room this year.
Instead of the creepy themed Halloween decorations,
I was going to stick to a softer side of Halloween, maybe even hokey.
I pulled out all of the orange and blue that I could find to set the table with.
Twigs and fiery orange leaves in pretty blue pottery made the perfect centerpiece.
Silly orange and white polka dot plates top each place setting.
I added some blue plaid napkins with those adorable little jack o lantern napkin rings that were given to me a few years ago by one of my first blog friends.
Of course I wasn't satisfied unti there were crows.
Lots and lots of crows.
And paper bats
( THAT KEEP FALLING OFF OF THE WALL!!)
(Look out! There is a large dog hiding beneath the table cloth)
This was the perfect room to display the little cross stitch that I made a few years ago.
I remember while I was working on it.. I got called for jury duty.
Do you know that embroidery needles are not allowed in the courthouse?
For some reason I knew that..
and I smuggled needles in my penny loafers so that I could work on it while I was waiting.
I am officially a criminal.
Look at their adorable slippers.
This blue cabinet holds a piece of my heart,
my mother's ashes.
Don't be alarmed that I decorated it.
I do it all of the time.
: ) I have to!!
My mom loved Halloween too and she would be disappointed if I didn't!
You see, My mom was very ornery and had a fantastic sense of humor..
which is why I just try to keep it real.
Who else would have a Crash Bandicoot holding a rosary.
I admit, It makes me smile every time I look at it.
( Crash Bandicoot was her favorite video game!)
She was a riot!
I feel like I am slacking off on the Halloween decor this year..
I guess I am in the mood for a little something different.
Thanks for visiting!
Have a great Thursday friends!!
