Halloween Tablescape

I couldn't let a holiday go by without whipping up a celebratory table top. The best thing about this table is that everything, except for the spider silhouettes, were pulled from my existing collection. The mud cloth is a versatile piece of fabric I've used in many different ways and here as a base for the creepy Halloween table. I layered the textile with contrasting white dishes, hand-dyed napkins, vintage green glassware and L'entrimise flatware. I foraged my yard to create the "dead flower arrangement," and I topped it all off with a few decorations from the house. How do you decorate your Halloween table?
