What a nice rustic touch for your Halloween party table. I like the layered paint look going on here. The orange, the black, and the gold glitter. I wish we could see a bigger picture, though. I'd like to reference that as I go along. Buying different sized terracotta pots will give you an array of heights for the table that is most pleasing to the eye. I have experience in party table set-up!

Absolutely love this project. Fun and easy but very cute! Great for any or kids...
