Specify Your Home With Halloween Table Decorations
October is the perfect time of year to get creative with home decor using Halloween table decorations. Whether you’re after a creepy look or want to make your room cute and kid friendly, there are plenty of decorating options.
Creepy Halloween Table Decorations
Decorating your home with blood and guts may not be appropriate every day of the year, but Halloween is the time for exceptions.
These Halloween table decorations are for the true Halloween enthusiast who is planning a party to scare their nearest and dearest friends. Begin your table decorating with a simple black table cloth and black dishes. Turn the lights down and add some votive candles in mercury glass holders to give a little light. Next, place creepy old photos (which can be found with a little online searching) into black frames. Plastic spiders and rats should be placed all over the table, over a generous layer of fake cobweb. Be sure to have a playlist of creepy songs playing in the background. A table like this will be sure to frighten all the guests in the room.
Gothic Halloween Table Decorations
If ever there was a time to turn your home into a dark and creepy haunted house, Halloween is it.
Going out all out with Halloween table decorations doesn’t necessarily have to mean covering a table with ghouls and gore. You can choose to create a look that’s both creepy and classic by choosing decor with an antique look and a simple dark color scheme. Start with a black lace tablecloth and set the table with black dishes. Add goblets, either in clear glass or a rich jewel tone. To add height and drama to the table, use candelabras, spray painted black and adorned with a bit of fake spiderweb which can be found at craft stores. Old Victorian photos will help to carry on your theme. Place them in ornate picture frames that you can give an antique look to with a quick coat of spray paint and a bit of distressing. A bouquet of black roses in the center of the table will complete the look.
Cute Halloween Table Decor
The dark and gloomy look isn’t for everyone. For those who want to keep their Halloween decorating fun and whimsical, there are lots of great options. Start by placing a burlap or Halloween fabric runner on your table. Next, start collecting cute Halloween items to group on the table. Try to stick with a theme or a color scheme. For example, gather only black, white, and green items or only items featuring pumpkins. Begin your table decorating with a few small carved pumpkins. If pumpkin carving isn’t your favorite Halloween pastime, consider finding a few small pumpkins and spray paint them. This way, you can make them match any color scheme and even cover them with a coat of glitter if you want to add some glitz to the table!
Add more items such as black cat figurines and ghosts. Add some height by placing a few of the smaller items on candle holders. Set the table with plain white dishes then add a pop of color and fun with Halloween printed napkins, tied with a piece of orange ribbon. Make things a little more fun with labels for each dish in your bewitching buffet. For example, spaghetti can easily become worms and meatballs while a bowl of punch could be labeled witch’s brew.
Halloween Centerpieces For The Kids Table
Halloween is definitely a holiday that kids can get into.
With all the fun costumes and bags full of candy, who could blame them? There are tons of options for games and activities for a children’s Halloween party, but even as a grown up get together kids can enjoy their own table. When decorating a table for kids, it’s important to make it fun and give them things to keep them entertained. Lay down a fun, printed tablecloth and set the table with some Halloween themed melamine dishes that can often be found at dollar stores. Add a basket full of coloring and activity pages as well as a cup of crayons. Silly straws are always a hit and plastic spider rings would make a fantastic party favor. Don’t forget a bowl of candy corn, the centerpiece to every great kids table.
