Shakin' on Halloween

We won't be shakin' in our boots this spooky Halloween night. We'll be shakin' these cute pumpkin Salt n Pepper shakers.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

Halloween is actually my favorite holiday, but I'm not dressing up or decorating the house in spider webs this year. Instead, I'm preparing a trial menu for an upcoming dinner party.

On the menu:

Spiced Butternut Squash Apple Soup
Roasted Beef Tenderloin
Orange-infused Roasted Green Beans and Red Peppers
Fall Green Salad (to be determined, suggestions welcome)
Roquefort Popovers

For dessert, probably something light like sherbert and a cookie wafer.

I have a thing for Salt n Pepper shakers. I have a small collection and am always looking for sets that are unique, cute, or holiday specific. One of my favorite sets is, of course, horse related.

The truck dispenses salt at the front. The trailer dispenses pepper from the back.

A perfect set to decorate the table of the horse lover or pickup truck enthusiast.


  1. Oooh, that is the cutest salt and pepper set I have ever seen!
    Happy Halloweeen!

  2. Tell us how the meal turns out! Love the shakers

  3. I am in love with that salt and pepper shaker! Very cute. Your menu sounds divine. For the salad...we went to a wedding tonight and they served mixed baby greens with grilled pears and feta and a berry vinaigrette. It was delicious -especially the grilled pears. Happy Halloween - hope your favorite holiday is fun!

  4. Tail swishing out the back of a trailer, gotta love it!

  5. The menu sounds delicious. Love all the salt and pepper shakers, so cute.

  6. Dinner turned out pretty well, although I made a huge mess of my kitchen..but fortunately nothing splattered onto the ceiling. That's happened before. I'm a messy cook. Thanks for the salad idea juliette. That sounds good.

    Glad you all liked the salt & pepper shakers. "Manure Pepper"...ha! I hadn't thought of it like that.
