I had a little time this morning between chores and thought I would go ahead and plan my Halloween tablescape.
First things first - laid down a plain white linen tablecloth and then topped it with my find from after Halloween last year, my beautiful spider web cloth - it was either Grandin Road or Ballard Designs catalog  it was marked way down and I snapped it up for this year.  It could be used for other things like decorating another type of table, etc.
Next came the chargers, dinner plates, salad and dessert plates, wine and water glasses.
Time for the pretties - the place cards, napkin rings and napkins, centerpiece and candles.  These kitty place cards so easy and you do not have to have a draw program to make them.  I moseyed over to The Graphics Fairy and found the kitty and copied and pasted him/her into a black lined square 3.117 x 3.15." If you don't have a draw program and want to make these just add him to any word processing program and then print them out on cardstock and cut.  Added the name (you could just write the name) and then poke a hole just above his ear for your scissors, cut around him and then fold the cardstock over and run a bone folder over the edges for a crisp edge and you have a really cute place card.

 Now for the napkin ring - used my old, easy trick of cut cardboard tubing and made the napkin rings.  Simply cut either cardboard or plastic tubing about 1 1/4," file the edges and get out the glue gun.  I cut the length of ribbon and put a dot of glue on the cardboard/plastic, attach one end of the ribbon, bring it around and add another dot of glue on the ribbon and attach to the cardboard/plastic.

Added the flatware and a couple of little cauldron shaped candle glasses and little black polka-dot saucers, needed a centerpiece so I found this pumpkin in my stash and just added a bow from the polka-dot ribbon used on the napkin rings and I think we have a tablescape for a fun Halloween dinner!
