Wow! You did so much to create this "Glam and Glitz" tablescape!
There is so much detail here! My favorite thing on the table is the silver pumpkin with the beading... That's just awesome!
*Have a Happy Weekend*

I am in awe of your take on the theme! I love your bejeweled pumpkin!!! May I steal that idea for next year! No, really it reminds me of a Hollywood starlet. Just gorgeous! Happy Halloween!

Amazing and so rich in detail!! You are a talented tablescaper!! Beautiful! I had clicked on "follow" last week but when I came back I was not on the list, so I'm trying again!

I absolutely love your title! It really caught my attention. I'm new to Tablescape Thursdays and am really enjoying meeting all these great tablescapers (I'm not one of them but I did attempt at one today for the sake of the party!). I'm going to follow you and I hope you'll stop by my blog to check it out too :)

Who says Halloween can't be glamorous! Beautiful!

How did I possibly miss the invitations for all 3 parties?!!! Someone must be going through my mail!

Wow, fabulous! So nice to have you as a follower and I am following you back. You are too much fun. I loved everything you did. Every little detail - I want it all. The silver pumpkin, the ostrich feathers, the little waiters.

Loved the bone table too. Those candles are incredible. And I can't not mention the wonderful lime green table. The placemats are gorgeous. This is going to be fun getting to know you!

Great table! Where on earth did you find those great table card holders???!?!!? I, too, purchased a "Bentley" (who I promptly renamed Geoffrey Merriweather!)from Bombay Company about 10 years ago, and I would love to get some "mini me" Geoffreys! Really nice look!!!

I LOVE those little butler place card holders. I've not seen anything like them before. Beautiful, fun table with something to find everywhere.
