Vintage Halloween Decorating Ideas and free Printable!

Hey everyone! 
While perusing Vintage Halloween items on-line,
some of the ideas were spooky and some were just great ideas....
-Old quilts with black in them
-Candle holders-black or iron
-Wood Shutters used as a back drop for a vignette
-Vintage images that were framed or used in a banner
-vintage dishes
-wood dishes spray painted black or cream (only for decorating purposes) for display
-vintage silverware
-Silver trays
-silver frames (can be found at thrift stores for cheap!)
-old Halloween decorations (can be found on Ebay and Etsy)
-Black glitter used on frames or candlesticks
-Old cake stands, bird cages, platters used for Halloween vignettes
-sticks spray painted black and put in a dark vase...
This week I'm setting the table with vintage items and some new....
Graphics that are around my house have been found @

the napkins I stenciled with crows a few years back, I pull them out every year. They add a fun element to the table.
The beautiful old quilt was given to me by a good friend...her grandmother made it. It is even more beautiful up close.
Plaid dishes and silver napkin rings are from Target, vintage silverware is from a consignment store picked up along the way.

I played around with these wonderful graphics from Graphic's Fairy and added a little  Vintage Halloween touch-
by going to Pic Monkey and adding text to them for my Vintage Halloween Table-scape and decor.

Below is a toy dresser that I use during the holidays to decorate with.
I love little toy furniture...
the little drawers are perfect to hide little treats in!
I  printed the graphic above on creamy beige cardstock and put it in a frame from Hobby Lobby.
The frames comes in black too!
Click on image above, right click and save to a picture file(instead of a document file) on your computer.
Original graphic is from Graphic's Fairy! She has tons of Halloween and fall graphics, old architectural black and white graphics too.

 Candleabra is from Hobby Lobby (years ago...)

Thank you so much for visiting!
