Spooky & Sophisticated Halloween Tablescape

 

October can only mean one thing - HALLOWEEN! I feel like Halloween is one of those holidays that are really focused on the kids, and we as adults kind of overlook celebrating. But let’s be honest, there really is no age limit on decor. This year, go all out with Halloween and turn your dining table into the ultimate spread (basically the adult version of trick-o-treating) and keep reading to see how I elevated the classic black and orange theme to a more dramatic and elegant look!

I started off with some cheese cloth (you can also use white gauze) and pulled it apart with my hands to create a not-so-perfect table runner, and then layered on a lace spider web runner. For a striking centerpiece, use this styrofoam skull encased in a glass cloche - I’m kind of obsessed with skulls and skeletons this year!

With any sort of styling, it’s important to add dimension with height and scale. So I used two tall vases filled with faux stems on either end of the table to create some balance and symmetry. To display all your treats, grab a couple of lazy susans and cake stands, and fill up some beautiful glassware with festive cocktails and wine.

Now comes the fun part! Add in stylish candles, pumpkin accents, festive decor pieces, creepy crawly spiders and now we’re really in business! These playful elements are what really ties the whole table together and gives off the Halloween vibe!

I’ve linked everything throughout this post and below so you can create the look all on your own. There are a few items that I couldn’t find online, but I provided links to similar items. Now hurry up and get to decorating, because the only thing scarier than Halloween is not being prepared for it! HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
