Southern Table: Casting Spells

Southern Guide to Life ~ Southern Table: Casting SpellsIt’s no ordinary Halloween party when you transform your home into a witches lair, complete with your very own Book of Spells.  Immerse your guests into a creepy world of your own creation.


IMG_7066---2-low-resThe cornerstone of this magical tablescape is an ancient spellbook that would be perfectly suited to the Halliwell attic or a secret chamber hidden inside Hogwarts.

It’s really an old dictionary that has been repurposed into a brilliant centerpiece of a design meant to transport guests to a magical world.  Tiffany created the pages in Printshop and distressed them, before gluing them into the dictionary.  She used brown ink to create the aging.  The well loved appearance of the entire book was created by spraying random pages with water and turning the corners of the book.

The frame is flanked by a white cake stand and candle holder from the Dollar Store and more creepy creatures. The large glittered spider crawling up the candlestick appears to have crawled right out of the spiderweb themed table runner.
