Tablescape # 35

~Bats and Cats~ 

Happy Halloween!!
It's going to be a busy Halloween Weekend in Blogland. 
This Witch with the the broom is a Tea Pot and the broom is the spout.~I think this witch tea pot is sooo... cute.  Don't you?

Halloween cupcakes take center stage with a little help from Mr. and Mrs. Cat.  The Cats are back from
their trip and decided to have a Halloween party. The Bats and Moons are dressing up the Devils Food cupcakes in style for the festive evening.
I cut out the Moon and Bats from White fondant.  Trying to color white fondant black for the bats was a real challenge .  I mixed Violet and Red with a little Brown.  When I work with fondant again and need the color  Black, I will buy BLACK fondant or black food coloring. 
 Another lesson learned the hard way!

This Halloween Tablescape is a very Thrifty one. 

The cupcake aprons and picks I found on sale at the craft store. I used Royal Icing and a 1M tip to frost the Halloween cupcakes. 

The 'Mums' in the garden are still blooming.  I picked this bucket today.  I have only two plants and they are still producing more blooms.
