How to Design an Elaborate Halloween Tablescape

Flash back to 2013 when I first wrote about this elaborate Halloween tablescape article on my blog with Fort Worth Magazine! I’m bringing it back from the grave for your reading and viewing pleasures! Enjoy, and happy Halloween!

Here, in my parents home, an elaborately decorated dining table with seating for 14 guest was whipped up in true Carol Dunaway fashion.  Enjoy these inspirations for your own Halloween table design.

Six skulls from Katherine’s Collection were the main focal point of this table.

Mom got crafty when she made these homemade stone-crusted Elizabethan Collars to compliment the decorative skulls.

These large Katherine’s Collection skulls didn’t come with those darling tophat headbands with their own jewel-toned glittered mini-me’s.  But they were the perfect addition to this ensemble or to any outfit for the upcoming Halloween festivities.

Glittered candles from Pier 1 (similar) and decorative butterflies along with black and white ribbon from Amazon add to the decor.

Arranged white Hydrangeas in mirrored containers add that garden touch I alwasy enjoy incorporating in my own tablescapes.

The perfect addition, bone encrusted ornaments hanging from the chandelier.

Complimenting the theme of the table are two different sizes of black goblets.

Several layers of alabaster & silver rimmed plates are stacked upon these fabulous chargers that burst with silver, along with one of my very favorite flatware.

And don’t forget to do name cards! Individually wrapped custom made bone cookies were the finishing touch.

Having a wreath on the front door gets the party started before your guest walk in.
