Only the BEST for me!

Some folks think they are all ‘fancy smancy’, (is smancy even a word?) when they dine on such things as ‘pheasant under glass’.

Well, only the best for me!

So, I’d like to say,


to my...




Take a seat, sit down and relax. Witch Hildegard will be happy to serve you.


As you can see, Hilde is dressed in her best attire.

She is wearing her favorite black party dress with the buttons down the back.


She has bows,


Her favorite boa,


buttons and pearls.


And no, she didn’t forget the bling!


She even brought along a couple of friends to assist her.


Let’s see what we have to serve you – UNDER GLASS

For the appetizer, how about a little eye of newt, wart of witch, or toe of frog,


Don’t they look appetizing?


For the main course, nothing is quite as hardy as. . .


a hot bowl of my homemade ‘Skelly Stew”!


It goes great with a small side of crow.


Crow not quite what you’re looking for?  Well then, how about a bit of Raven?


Certainly you’re cravin some raven!

What? no raven or crow.  Then maybe this will tickle your fancy.


Crows feet are ever so sweet!


For dessert we have, cupcakes to ‘DIE’ for!



Monsters eye balls


pumpkin sweets or jack-o-lantern’s teeth.


What’s that you say?  You’re on a diet?

Well for you. . .


we have liners without the cupcakes.  The fiber will do you good! You just might want to try it!

Now that our meal is complete.  I hope that it was everything you had hoped for, because. . .


Bye for now,

Think I’ll go eat crow!

Your Halloween decorations are to die for, they are wonderful! I am especially fond of the skeleton head and bones "under glass" and I can't resist a "good witch"! Every thing is so fun! I scaled down this year but this makes me want to get it ALL out! I'm your newest follower and would love for you to visit me!

Anna said...

What charming, festive decorations! I especially love Hilde's ensemble :) Happy Autumn to you!

Debbie said...

I just love this!! Creative people are my favorite kind of folks to know. They always look at things completely differently. Take for example, the jar full of cupcake liners. I just loved that, and I would never have thought of it.

Just plain wonderful!

Orange dotty cuppy liners- no calories!! Perfect! Although Hildies newspaper apron is just the thing! :)

Thanks so much for linking up for Dotty Hop Day! ♥

Jann, Hilde is super cute! I'll take some of that eye of newt please!

Love your table scape. WONDERFUL and Creative.

Unknown said...

Wow Jann, these are the best ideas! I love that witches hat and now you've inspired me to make one. I know I have a hat up there in the attic. The cute cupcake liners was such good ideas for a colorful display. I'm just totally impressed by all the fabulous ideas you've come up with. You table display is so, so pretty. And Hildegard is awesome. Where did you come up with that paper skirt idea? I wish I had you sense of whimsy. Both garlands are precious and that wreath and black board. And the skull soup. You're killing me with your creativity! I need to just shut up, it's obvious that I'm blown away.

Thanks for telling me it was Teen Angel. I thought it was.

Hugs and love...Tracy :)
