DIY This Spooky Boudoir Tablescape for a Fabulous Halloween

I love Halloween: But when I decorate I don’t do black and orange, too literal! Instead I like moody, dark tones that give a spooky chic feeling. This year, I chose a Spooky Boudoir theme for my table. I started with a palette of purple, burgundy and black, added silver glitter-covered skulls decorated with jewels (and lashes!), and black-painted candlesticks with crimson candles. Stack your Effortless Table plates on DIY Feathered Chargers and top them with Jeweled Spider Napkin Rings. The final touch? A feather boa artfully swagged along the wall. Sexy and scary!!

Coyote urine. It’s the reason my hydrangeas actually bloomed this year. (Deer repellent.) And after her thorough sweep of the gardens for chipmunks, it’s what Mary smells like right now. #bathtime Happy Saturday!
