Bats & Spiders–A Halloween Tablescape













The dining room has been infected with bats & spiders. There are bats swarming the chandelier and spiders guarding the plates.

Cobwebs have formed on the glassware and table decorations, that must mean you are late to the table as I am sure it wasn’t like that when I set it.

The butler has even turned into a mummy!

And whatever he was going to serve looks as if it has become a skeleton. Careful, there’s one of the spiders on his shoulder.

Since you are here, let me share the table that I set for you.

Would you like a beverage? It’s garnished with bat. Just swirl the cobwebs into your drink, I’m sure they’ll dissolve.

At least the haunted house is too small to be a bother.

Please be seated. Don’t worry the branches are dormant and won’t hurt you.

I’ve shaken the spider off your napkin, so you may sit down. I do hope he’s not on your chair.

Oh, there he is above your plate. In amongst the cobwebs and the branches. It looks like he is crawling the other direction, so you should be safe. For a while at least.

Would you like an appetizer?

What kind of eggs do you think they are?

As long as we are fairly quiet the bats should remain in the chandelier.

I’m so glad you came to visit, I enjoyed sharing my table with you. I’ll try to clean out the vermin before you visit again.
