Creating a spooky and stylish Halloween tablescape

Spooky season is here and with Halloween fast approaching, why not try injecting a little fun into your home décor? Whether you’re hosting the ultimate Halloween soiree, an epic movie night or just want to fire a little Halloween fun into your home, a wicked table scape might just be the way to go. We’ve pulled together a few suggestions to help get your creative juices flowing.

Gothic Glam 

 A stylish black tablecloth is a simple way to create a spookily sophisticated aesthetic.  Couple with black velvet napkins and metallic napkin rings to add texture. Grey or charcoal crockery paired with gold cutlery will instantly add dimension to your hauntingly glamourous table setting.

Morticia Addams’ Florist

A great table scape is never short of beautiful flowers and Halloween should be no exception. Opt for single dark red roses on each dining space to create a mysteriously chic vibe and incorporate a plum-coloured bouquet for the centre piece to add drama to your table. Display the masterpiece in a glass vase to add contrast to the dark table.

Candlelit Dining

The use of candles is a perfect way to create an eerie atmosphere. Try using black candle holders of varying sizes to add depth. Traditional candles exude gothic glam and are the perfect addition to any Halloween themed table.

Pumpkin Picking

Halloween is all about traditions and pumpkin picking is one of the biggest traditions there is. Why not add a nod to this spooky classic by dotting some velvet pumpkin ornaments around the table? Staying on theme while keeping it elegant! Plus, the velvet will tie in perfectly with dark napkins and is ideal for a pop of colour.

Witch Please

Cast a spell on your guests by placing an array of charming cauldrons around the dinner table to really show off all your Halloween efforts. Use the cauldrons to store festive treats (or a punch bowl!) or simply as decoration to enchant and wow for all your Halloween plans.
