My Creepy Halloween Tablescape

Welcome to my Halloween Tablescape! 

I created a fun, colorful, and at the same time creepy tablescape for this fun time of the year. 

 I hope my table gives you come ideas!

It's that time of the year when we can pull out all of our tricks and treats and decorate our homes for a fun time with family, friends, and neighborhood kids. 

Today I am sharing a Halloween tablescape...and I invite you to lunch with me, if you dare! :-)

Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate blog, our fearless tablescape leader, has organized our group for Halloween tables to give you ideas to try at your home. 

I have all of the links below for you to visit the blogs each day of this week. Just check back each day. It will be such fun with this very creative group of ladies! 

For Halloween, I love to go a little overboard with my table decorating. No rules. I love creepy fun...for decorating. I don't purchase much for the outside of the house, but I have accumulated quite a few decorative bits and pieces over the years. 

Some of my bits and pieces...

These stretchy skeletons are such fun...

When I saw these skull heads, I decided I needed them for my "creepy" Halloween table.

I also chose this fun Halloween banner and napkins.. 

My table colors are traditional black-white-orange. 

The banner is well made canvas, which lets me add it to my collection for future years of use.

I whipped up a cauldron of Skeleton Head soup for us to enjoy. To accompany the soup will be baked skeleton bread sticks, and spider crackers. A bit of crunch is nice along side soup don't you think. πŸ’€ πŸŽƒπŸŒ›

 My friendly crows wanted to join the party. 

I kept adding pieces of my Halloween items...to take my table over the top. Again...no rules for this tablescape. ha ha. The more the better!

For my tablescape I began with this table runner that I found at TJ Maxx several weeks ago. 

I layered each place setting with a round black placemat, a white plate, a creepy napkin, and then an oversized coffee cup for the soup.  

White china/dishes works so well no matter the theme or season. They are available in all price ranges and make a great addition to your dish collection if you do not have any. 

To dress up the table even more I layered a Halloween banner and orange metallic cording over the runner. More is better when it comes to Halloween! And normally I think less is better...ha ha. 

 An overhead view to show you the mix of elements.

And there we have it. My table is ready to "lunch with the ladies."  Call a few of your best friends and have a fun Halloween themed lunch. 

Disclosure: Oriental Trading provided the soiree paper napkins, black polyester napkins,  cauldron, Halloween banner, stretchy skeletons, and skull heads. All ideas are my own! If you are interested in any of the products...just visit these links.

All other items came from my personal Halloween collection.
