A Place at the Table

Wow!  Today has been an incredible day!  Were you all glued to the TV last night as the first Chilean mine came to the surface for the first time in 8 weeks?  All those empty dinner table seats empty for such a long time will be filled tonight!  The thought brought tears to my eyes and makes my heart swell with happiness for all those families. 

So I guess it’s appropriate that today I show you the table place cards for my Halloween Frightful dinner party.  There’s no question at my house.  If you are here for dinner, you have a seat, but it’s fun to make an extra effort to the make the occasion more festive.  P1060769

I used Coredinations cardstock for the base, and the purple, dotted paper is from the Hobby Lobby Halloween paper collection.  The characters are cut from the odd scrap.  The ribbon is once again Hobby Lobby.  You can see the details as I show the individual place cards.  But first a little peek at what my table might look like for the night.P1060771  P1060772

So there you go! Tomorrow I’m going to show you more of my table scape.  Be sure to check back tomorrow.
