So you’ve sent the Facebook invites, prepared the menu, and even curated a suitably scary soundtrack – congratulations on getting this far with your grown up Halloween dinner party. Now it’s time for the fun part – decorations! Read on for a selection of hauntingly beautiful Halloween tablescapes to inspire your frightful feast.

Haunted Manor House

Decadently dark and gorgeously gothic, Cassandra’s ‘Midnight in the Garden’ themed tablescape takes inspiration from Miss Havisham’s overgrown, decaying mansion.

I love that this tablescape manages to exude a quietly eerie feel without screaming Halloween. The creepiness lies in the details: cobwebbed skulls and vintage candelabras, moss and bone accents, and weathered garden statues. Even the servingware has little animal legs, making it look like the food is being served on the actual skeletal remains of birds and beasts.

A Wicked Feast

Black on black lends an appropriately macabre feel to Justina’s thrifted Halloween tablescape.

I love the addition of the gilded cutlery and decorative candlesticks which work to elevate the elegance of this table. Up the spook factor by scattering centipedes and spiders across your tablescape – fake, of course.


Vintage Classic

When it comes to Halloween decor, there’s a fine line between ghoulish and tacky. Luckily, this simple take on the classic orange and black theme has me scared for all the right reasons.

A taxidermy crow perched upon a bare branch tree plays to the rustic nature of this woodland feast. Top marks for the creepy pumpkin decorations too, which are giving me serious Pennywise vibes.

Gothic Garden Party

For a romantic take on Halloween look no further.

A flock of crows, some black goblets and antique candlesticks is all it takes to make a classically pretty tablescape Halloween ready. Let’s just hope the weather will be alright for an outdoor rendezvous!

Skull and Bones

Simple yet effective, this skull and bones centerpiece is one way to make your guests feel uneasy all night long. After all, what’s more disconcerting than having an emaciated skull watching you eat?
