Poor little Derby is exhausted from planning our Halloween dinner party for 10!
Mr. Pumpkin is placed in the center of the table.
Our Tiffany dishes come out for dinner.
Each place setting has a party favor . . . a bag of treats for guests to take home.
Wilson thought everyone should have their own salt & pepper shakers.
Boo napkins in black ... Pumpkin napkins in orange.
The chandelier above the dinning room table.
After dinner Halloween 'poppers' for more Halloween fun.
Our table is so full of decorations, plates, glasses and silverware, we need to have the food buffet style in the kitchen.
After dinner coffee cups are in place.
Dessert is mini cheesecakes with a chocolate cookie crust decorated with fresh fruit and a spun sugar spider web in golden yellow.
I've been know to skip a meal & head directly to dessert.
. . . Thank You . . . Chef Wilson . . .
Slow Roasted Tom Turkey with Maple Bacon . . . Carved Old Fashion Ham Baked with Cloves . . . Smashed Potoatos . . . Kentucky Corn Pudding . . . Tossed Greens with Gargonzola Vingerette Dressing . . . and . . . Parker House Rolls
We'll light the candles . . . Fill the glasses
. . . And toast to the spirit of Halloween, good friends & the beauty of the fall season.

And, in the end, we can not forget to thank Julep who is exhausted from helping us get ready for our guests.
