Dishing It Up With Sharon Insul—Colorful Halloween With A Touch Of White
Posted: Tuesday, October 24, 2017 – 2:49 PM
Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table…
Goblins, ghosts, gremlins, witches—yes, yes, of course—let’s not forget screeching bats, and creepy-crawly spiders all shrouded in heavy fog that will be swirling about throughout Halloween night, with the help of my super duper fog machines. Yikes! A warning of “enter at your own risk,” will be posted at the front door. Those who willingly venture forth should consider grabbing a hold of someone’s hand, cape or broom to safely navigate this Halloween cave of untold creatures, and surprises of the night.
While guests carefully make their way to the many drinking, feeding, and witch-watching stations, they will be reminded to be ever vigilant of the ghouls, and their playmates. Hmmm. What can I say? I guess which type of night it turns out to be, will depend upon how many ghouls, witches etc. make their way across my threshold. The table in the first photo, while not totally dressed for the upcoming evening, is stocked with plates, candles and candy in colors of pumpkin orange, ghoulish/witch black, and a touch of white for accent.
In the second photo, which is also part of the table in the first photo, candles of different heights and colors will be the only true source of light acting as a beacon to a safe zone. Trick or treat?
