Halloween forks?

Okay, so...here's a question I can't answer.

I've got a halloween theme going in my dining room. I've got a variety of cloth halloween-themed placemats and napkins. I used to have a halloween tablecloth, but my table's just too big for it now, so that doesn't work so well, life goes on though, I can comission a bigger one from my stitch-happy friends.

One thing I'm hitting a wall on, tho, is silverware. There just isn't any halloween stainless steel patterns that I can see. I know I can get stuff with a plastic handle, but that stuff wears out pretty quickly. Has anyone ever seen something like this? Doesn't really matter what pattern - bats, moons, just an unusually gothy pattern, anything that would keep with the tone.

Hmm...the twisted-stem ones are kind of nice, I could see that. I'm not sure I want to spend $250 on them right now, it may have to wait :( Best not to blow that much money on something that isn't Absolutely The Perfect Thing...

Go to World Market. they have spiffy flatware, including the twin of that first set she linked to, for a lot less money. My swirly, twisted-handle flatware came from there.

Thanks, Star :) There's a World Market up the road from my office, right next to a Bed, Bath and Beyond. I'll hit those in sequence, and see what's available and spiffy.

Go to TJ Maxx...
look in the back of the store-- they have some nice twiggy-handled flatware-- not sure how comfortable it would be for hours of eating, but it's very cool!

Give it to NM for wonderfully pretty knock-offs though.
