STEP 1 // Pick a Color Scheme Orange, black, purple, and green are the colors that I most associate with Halloween. Above I chose to keep things black and white with pops of purple, by going with these colors my tablescape is clearly Halloween and not for Thanksgiving. Having mostly neutral items with pops of an accent color are perfect for me. The neutral items will be easy to keep and reuse at other times.
STEP 2 // Vary Heights For a tablescape you want to create a variety of heights. On a Halloween table you can create various heights by choosing different sized pumpkins or candles or by finding candlesticks at staggering heights.
STEP 3 // Simple Dishes You do not need to buy specific plates and dishes for Halloween, stick with the classic white or black. Again this will allow you to use the item year-round.
STEP 4 // Halloween Decor What Halloween items do you want to decorate with? Pumpkins are a classic item. Skeletons, crows, spiders, cauldron, potion bottles, etc. are also good items to decorate a Halloween table.
STEP 5 // Use Nature Keep your budget in mind when creating a tablescape, so using natural elements can really help with that. Growing your own pumpkins and gourds can be great decorations. Fill a vase with twigs you have gathered and add lights to them for a centerpiece.
STEP 6 // Be Creative Cut costs and make the table more personal with creative touches. Use mini pumpkins and gourds as place cards. Hollow out a pumpkin and use it as a vase. Create your own drink for the occasion and fill a cauldron with it.
