Halloween Party - Table Decorating Ideas

Decorating for Halloween is fun but the table always makes a statement. Keep your guests out of the kitchen and at the table with these decorations.

Orange and Black is the theme for this Children's table.  The gift cornices on each chair adds a special touch for each guest.

A trip to the craft store will most likely score you some of these black birds.  Add some white dishes, black napkins, black candles, green table cloth, and black chairs to make this a table Alfred Hitchcock would be proud.

This table setting was actually used in a wedding but wouldn't it be simple to recreate?  The gourds hold luggage tags for each guest's name for place setting, white plates, pumpkins placed on a runner down the center of the table along with simple flower arrangements.

This table setting is so easy it's scary.  Black fabric or table cloth, white and black dishes, red wine, over-sized hard bound books, two candelabras, and some "spider webs".  Make this a little more vampirish by adding drapery if you're eating alfresco or in the corners of your dining room.

This looks much more complicated but the DIYer in you can do it!  Silver or shiny grey fabric for the table cover, black tulle tied around the backs of the chairs into a bow, white dishes, blue napkins, twigs from the yard spray painted white, a bat or black bird from the craft store, and some "spider webs".  See, I knew you could do it!

What Halloween table would be complete without a skull?  This is simple and complex.  The theme is black and orange, similar to the children's table above.  Here's where it gets a little tricky.  There are skulls flanking the candelabra, feather boas on each glass charger and below the plate.  It looks like the menu is ensconced in a silver frame and at each place setting is a votive candle along with a bust statue holding each guest's name.
