Halloween tablescape with a witchy twist

This was one of my favorite tablescapes – built for Halloween, it wasn’t “too Halloween,
not over the top scary, not too much orange, purple and black or too many scary features.

I thought this was more of an elegant Halloween, with crystal wine glasses, silver and crystal candlesticks and even crystal decanters.

The plates are simply white, by Dansk,  and the tablecloth is a white damask – not usually expected for Halloween.

I’ve hollowed out a pumpkin here, spray painted some vines in my yard with black spray paint, and added orange mums.

But what makes this different is that I used 6 black witch hats, that when collapsed, become perfect placemats! The best thing about that is that guests can wear the hats a the dinner, AND take them home.

Crystal decanters are filled with candy corn, “eyeballs” and green monster fingers.Dansk plates
