Halloween Tablescape

This fall I'm going for the Alfred Hitchcock "The Birds" theme! 
You can see the matching banner on an earlier post I have HERE.

I got the flock of black birds at the Dollar Tree..Jackpot!

Dollar Store Halloween Finds

I saw this ugly dollar store owl project on either Pinterest or a blog. 
I wish I could remember because I'd love to give her credit on my blog. 
Anyway, after I saw it somewhere I went to the Dollar Tree looking for black birds, 
and there was the ugly owl!!! I had to buy two. One for me and one for my sister. 
I also found a jackpot of black birds, 
and some lovely pumpkins that I couldn't pass up.
After a good 6 coats of off white spray paint the ugly owls are now super classy!
Here are the classy owls with the pretty $1.00 pumpkins.
And with a few of the $1.00 black birds (which I bought 12 of).
Thank you mystery owl painter for the inspiration! 
And thank you Dollar Tree for having ugly owls and black birds!

Boo Banner

It's time to decorate for fall! 
I made this two sided banner last year and I still love it. 
One side is Halloween, and the other side is Thanksgiving. 
A big part of my tablescaping is the large antique mirror 
that hangs behind my dinning room table. 
This year I was going for an  
Alfred Hitchcock, The Birds theme. 

In this picture you can get a peek at the reverse side.
