Witch And Skulls Appetizer Table

Oct 3, 2023 | Halloween, Holiday, Maggie Lane Designs

Happy Wednesday everyone!  This fun and casual Witch And Skulls Appetizer Table was a delight to put together.  Rather than putting a normal tablescape together, I chose to create this table to emphasize appetizers and create a table where my guests can just pick up a plate and enjoy a selection of different holiday foods.  Check out my Tips For Making Party Appetizers!  The recipes I will be making to put on this table will be posted in the next week or so along with a fun Halloween dog treat for our furry friends.  And as always, it will be Lab tested by Jake and Maggie :-).
We not only have some fun recipes coming up, Jake and Maggie are now Pet Palace Ambassadors for Ava’s Pet Palace.  Use code “twoadorablelabs” at checkout for free shipping.  I’ve posted this under my “Supporting Small Business” tab, as well as, on each blog every week.  Want to know why we are so excited to be a party of Ava’s Pet Palace?  These are just a few:
*They’re made with 96% protein content (salmon or turkey) with the added benefits of kale and flaxseed in the Salmon Puffs and pumpkin in the Turkey Poppers

*Antioxidant, vitamin and nutrient-rich

How I created this Witch and Skulls Appetizer Table:
It all started with the witch I found at TJ Max!  The entire table revolves around her :-).  I loved all the detail on her from her face (mole), clothes, broom, shoes, stockings, to the black nail polish on her finger nails.
I first covered the table with this skull blanket I purchased at the end of summer at Home Goods.  It is 70 x 60 inches and made by Cynthia Crowley.

How to create this Halloween Christmas tree:
I bought this black tree from Walmart a few years ago.  It already had the tree skirt included.  All of the decorations on the tree were purchased from the Dollar General this year.
I put down a wood cake plate from TJMaxx, covered it with this shimmery skull tablecloth from Big Lots that I purchased last year.
I sat the witch down on the cake plate with the candle stick behind her and placed the tree on the table behind her.  Then I built the table around that.
The Apothecary sign is from Dollar General and I leaned it up against the cake plate on the other side.  These wood signs are so versatile and can be used inside for walls, doors, and tables or on a holiday wreath!

This table is perfect for a Halloween party because it’s bright, festive, spooky, classy, and provides all the items necessary to hold appetizers, desserts, and drinks.  The square dish was originally going to be used for dips and chips is now going to be used to hold silverware.  It’s always fun to display the party silverware a different way.
Don’t be afraid to layer blankets, table clothes, napkins and combine patterns as long as they are in the same color family.  In this case, I accented black, gold, and cream with pops of orange!

I’m Bobbi Jo, a lab-lover who took my passion for animals and dogs and turned it into something bigger.  When I adopted Jake and Maggie, my love for them became the driving force behind Two Adorable Labs, and my blog was born.  My hope is to not only share them with the world, but to help educate others on the importance of animal health and well-being.

Two Adorable Labs has become a collection of all that I love.  I’ll send one post each week on things that bring me joy on animal health, home decor, and food recipes for humans and our furry friends.  I hope you enjoy these posts and much as I do creating them!
