Denise Baker from Little Ant Design sent in some pictures of her new Halloween table… and – seriously – how fun is this?! I’m especially loving the bony silver hands that are “holding” the utensils (clever!) and the cool skull & crossbones labels wrapped around the soda bottles…

Where does one get those cool modern trees used in the centerpiece? At IKEA… for only $5 a pop! (Side note: I actually have the same trees in yellow, and they look super cute with little photos and paper butterflies perched on them for a bridal shower or birthday party!)

Here’s a view the entire table… looks fabulous!

    I love the lables on the soda bottles idea. I can just see some Witch’s Brew with green soda, etc., really cute!

    I definitely got one of those trees in white at Ikea to use at our Halloween table at our party! In the meantime, it’s on my counter holding my jewelry :).

    I love the orange chargers! I’m thinking about using them for Halloween AND Auburn Tailgating parties! :)

    PS – I LOVE the chandelier ornament laid over the photos. Where did you find it?

    Hi Ali – I got it on istockphoto.com. I can’t remember the exact name of it because it was a long time ago, but I’m happy to email you the Illustrator EPS file if you want…let me know :)

    This is great! I actually have one of those Ikea trees in white and use it to hang my necklaces on. :) Great great ideas! Where do you get those silver hands?

    The hands were purchased at Z Gallerie a year or two ago. I did notice while checking out their site this week that they have them available again this year.
