Planning a Halloween party or looking for a fun way to decorate your home for Halloween? Check out this Orange and Black Skeleton Halloween Tablescape idea for inspiration and tips.
Seriously? How did we get to October already! I love this time of year; it's all about boots, sweaters, and football! I'm not a huge Halloween fan, but I do love to throw a good party. Usually, around this time of the year, we have a fall party. A fall party involves pumpkin related food and carving pumpkins. With my travel schedule, I didn't have a lot of time to shop for supplies. I'm sure I've mentioned this before, but here's a tip: when you are short on time and money, shop at home. So here's what I did to put together this Orange and Black Skeleton Halloween Tablescape.
Orange and Black Skeleton Halloween Tablescape Ideas
This tablescape was very easy to put together, and can easily be copied with just a few supplies and your imagination. I've listed below what you will need to pull off your own Halloween tablescape.
- white chargers
- orange and black cloth napkins
- orange tablecloth (psst, this is actually a curtain)
- Halloween Skeleton Orange & Black Dinner Plates
- 1 white feather boa
- 1 black feather boa
- assorted pumpkin decorations (Including a few real ones!)
- orange lights
- skeleton tomb decoration
- 2 black bare trees
- 1 black decorative mesh
- 1 black cheesecloth
By shopping at my house, I found some orange curtains purchased from IKEA a few years ago. I decided to use one of the panels for a table cloth. Yes, this is such an easy way to repurpose items around your house.
After laying down your “orange tablecloth,” roll out decorative black mesh, lining it up to the length of the table.
Now, let's work on the center of the table. I had one black feather boa and one white feather boa. I decided to use both of them in the center of the table to give some contrast. I weaved a set of orange Halloween lights throughout the feather boas and added two bare black trees in the middle.
Let's set the table! Using six white chargers, set them at each place setting, followed by the orange with black trim napkins. On top of each napkin, I added a Skeleton Serving Platter.
Adding my silverware and glasses, I was able to step back and admire my work.
I felt something was still missing. So, I looked around the house and garage to see what else I could use to complete my Halloween tablescape.
I was able to find a few pumpkins, including two real mini pumpkins. Earlier this month I did some shopping for Halloween decorations at Home Goods. While there I found this awesome Skeleton Tomb Decor. While this piece may look heavy, it's light and easy to manage.
Towards the end of the table, I added another white feather boa, plus a black cheesecloth draped along the back with a black feather wreath.
