HOW TO SET UP A SPOOKY HALLOWEEN TABLE

Follow these easy steps for setting up a stunning Halloween party table!

SET THE FOUNDATION: Start by covering the table with a white tablecloth or an old white flat sheet. If a slightly-tattered look is desired, slightly rip the edges or fringe them with scissors. For a spooky shimmery look, overlay the tablecloth with a sheer curtain panel. Add a black creepy cloth to each end.

LEVELS AND HEIGHT: Use crates, a stack of books, small boxes, tiered trays, or cake stands to create elevated areas. Levels and height provide visual interest to your overall layout. These hearty pieces also provide structure and stabilization as you begin to layer props and build out the scene.

CREATE DIMENSION: Use layering to create a multi-dimensional look on your Halloween party table. For instance, the white trees in the background provide dimension. Some are set up on short cardboard platforms for slight elevation and lift.

As items are placed in front, the scene has a feeling of depth and intrigue. Additional dimension was created using a white spider web as a rising, spreading layer of spooky mist beneath the tiered tray.

EXPERT TIPS > SPOOKY HALLOWEEN PARTY TABLE

With a little creativity and a few helpful tips, your decorated space will come together quickly. The most important part is to just have fun!

  • MAINTAIN A COHESIVE LOOK: Select decor pieces that compliment one another. Each featured item should be part of an overall cohesive look. It’s like building a scene for a theater production. Oddball items will stick out as not belonging and shatter the look.
  • SELECT A CENTERPIECE: Decide which item will be the main focal point and which items will be the supporting pieces. When setting up a dessert table, the focal point can be a tiered tray or dessert stand.
  • USE CLEAR CANDY JARS: For maximum visual effect, display spooky Halloween candies in clear glass jars or open-mouthed vessels like a ceramic ghost or pumpkin. Keep extra bags of candies on hand to refill the containers as needed.
