I had so much fun styling my table for Halloween this year. I haven’t decorated for Halloween in several years, but I got inspired this year. So, I want to share how I created a Halloween tablescape 2 ways.
I started with a “spooky” version, just for fun, then decided to try a more classic and fun style.
I had a roll of this Hester and Cook black and white stripe table runner, so I used a piece of that down the center of my table and added a piece of black shredded cheesecloth type fabric on top. That was purchased at Michaels.
I purchased felt web placemats from Michaels. They were on sale for $1.79.
I layered dishes I already had. The bottom layer is a white plate, the next layer is a salad plate from my Emma Bridgewater Pottery collection and the top layer is an orange transferware plate. I only had 4 of the orange transfeware plates and needed 6 for this table. I improvised on the other 2 place settings and used 2 square orange pattern melamine plates I had on hand and topped them with a smaller black and white pattern saucer from my Emma Bridgewater collection. Since the colors all coordinate, it worked just fine.
I don’t typically like to use paper napkins, but I loved these orange Houndstooth ones I bought several years ago at Hobby Lobby, so I used those for this tablescape.
The centerpiece is a soup tureen from Mackenzie Childs that I already had and I added dry ice for a spooky effect. I purchased dry ice at my local grocery store.
On one side of the soup pot, I used a black checked pumpkin and the other side is a witches hat I found at a thrift store recently. It was perfectly aged, but had a tacky ribbon and dried flowers on it, so I pulled those off and it turned out to be pretty cute.
I found 2 large crows and black glittered spiders at Michaels. I used 1 crow on each end of the centerpiece and topped each plate with a spider.
The final thing were 3 brass candlesticks that were left over from my daughter’s wedding decor.
Classic Halloween Tablescape
Next up, is the more fun, classic and less spooky version.
I kept most things the same, but removed the spiders, crows, witches hat and black gauzy fabric down the center.
I ended up leaving the spider web placemats but also tried some jute ones that I purchased a few months ago and I like that look too.
The Mackenzie Child’s soup tureen became a vase for fresh flowers I picked up at the grocery store.
And just like that, I styled a Halloween Tablescape 2 ways!!
I hope this gave you some ideas and inspiration to create your own Halloween table.
