Spooky Birthday Breakfast ☻
Come on in!!!
We recently had a 'Spooky Birthday Breakfast'
for my #2 grandson, who just turned 12.
At the front entrance of the house, just to set the theme, I stuck white paper dots from the stationary section onto
this lightweight black pumpkin from Walmart.
I tied it with a bow &
hung it on my shepherds hook. I bring it in if it looks like
rain, as the dots aren't waterproof. Maybe next year,
I'll paint it!
We comfortably fit all seven members of the family at the square table in the sunroom for bacon & eggs & Belgium waffles after church.
Happy Halloween placemats set the tone & a creepy look black crow watched over the event.
A battery operated candle is inside the witch's hat.
I NEVER use open flames around the children!
The grandkidlets found creepy spider rings hanging onto their orange juice glasses.
I'm sure getting my money's worth out of these Dollar Tree Birthday glasses!
They go beautifully with any colors I have on the table.
I set the table with plain white plates with little bowls to be used for either fresh fruit or ice cream served later with birthday cake.
I found these cute little "Boo" hand towels at Tuesday Morning.
I prefer gently "scary" things at Halloween & this little ghost fit the bill.
Quite frankly, the spiders & snakes really gross me out,
but I knew the grandsons would get a kick out of them.
Ms. C. wasn't too thrilled with them.
She & I & her mother enjoyed a soothing cuppa tea from this darling Halloween teapot.
I've done this kind of theme for my grandson's birthday before, with lots more creepy foods.
You can see & read about it HERE.
I just can't get away from it when his birthday is so close to Halloween!
I'm finally fully recovered from my cold...it was a doozy!
Thanks for all the "get well" wishes.
I'm joining Cuisine Kathleen for her "Let's Dish" party tonight as well as
Yvonne at StoneGable for "Tutorials, Tips & Tidbits" tomorrow &
Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for "Tablescape Thursday".
I'll be with The Tablescaper for "Seasonal Sundays".
Come check out these fun parties for lots more ideas!
Thanks for stopping by The Gazebo House.
