When it comes to Halloween decor, there’s a fine line between creatively creepy and terrifyingly tacky.
Here we reveal how you can dress your spooktacular table with five Halloween trends which are frightfully sophisticated.
Whether you’re having a sophisticated themed get together with friends, or hosting a Halloween party for the little ones… these tablescapes will create a fangtastic look!
1. Sophisticated white
Not into orange and black? Forget them! If you want to go for more of an elegant look, go for white instead of orange pumpkins. Just simply spray paint them! If you dare, add a pop of colour like light greens or even purples. Also don’t forget to add textural warmths by layering it up with knits and pampas grass. Got an old scrabble game laying about? Now is the time to make use of it!
2. Spooky darks
Create a stunning dark tablescape by simply whipping on a black piece of cloth. Add metallic accents and tealights or a candelabra for ambient lighting. Create a focal piece with old books, a skull and some autumnal foliage. Don’t forget to create an even more spooktacular look by adding some faux cobwebs!
3. Go country-pumpkin
Looking to create a cosier look this Halloween in your country kitchen? Then this is the style for you! Add a white cloth, orange toned candles and a central floral bouquet with plenty of fauna and foliage. Spice it up with fur cones and leaves around the table and pair your plates with gingham napkins.
4. Bring nature inside
Halloween is the perfect colour palette for fruits and vegetables- think figs, squashes, blackberries and dried fruits such as oranges and lemons. Scatter them around the table for an effortless look, along with a rustic table cloth such as hessian and muted gold or brass features such as spoons, napkins and glasses.
5. Central table wreath
Have fun and create a rustic wreath in the middle of your table. Use dark fruits and berries, foliage and baby pumpkins or squashes. You don’t have to attach it to anything just simply arrange them. Add a large glass lantern in the centre of the circle with a pillar candle to create a simplistic, sophisticated look.
