Another member of my Book Club hosted our group for lunch last October.  We got together just a couple of days right before Halloween.  I felt writing a post about it after Halloween was not the ideal timing.  Her tablescape, however, was too fun not to share it, so I delayed writing the post until this year.   I do apologize for the poor quality of the photos as I took them from my phone.  Let’s take a look at her tablescape…

An overview of her tablescape – a black and orange Halloween theme with festive pumpkin table decorations

“Witchy-Woman of the Friendly Kind” stands front and center…the simple orange daisies in pumpkin containers add just the right touch, and underneath it all – a great spiderweb table overlay along with an orange table runner

Come closer if you will, and take a look at her fall napkins secured with cute napkin rings (wooden pumpkins carved out in the center complete with tiny stems on top).  I also just love her black and white gingham placemats.

Special treats in mini pumpkins await us…

Lunch is served…with oh-so-pretty silverware

Chicken salad with celery, walnuts, and tarragon on top of a bed of lettuce served with fruit salad (delightful…)

Such a pretty butter knife and salt and pepper set…

And finally a personal favorite of mine…

 One of her beautiful Louis XVI style chairs located in a little reading nook of her home…


We read the book, Vanished by Wil S. Hylton.  Generally, we felt the book was a fairly interesting read about the search for some lost U.S army liberator bombers during World War II.  We thought the author tended to ramble at times and the storyline skipped around too much.   Hence, at times the book was difficult to follow and/or some of us lost interest.   In our opinion, the book fell well short of  Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand (another World War II true story) which still remains as one of all our top favorite reads.
