I was really planning on styling a black and white Halloween table setting, but somewhere along the way I veered into a black and white Halloween tablescape that became a lot about red. I started out with black plates for my black and white theme, but when I stopped into my local grocery store found that roses were on sale two for one.
I am so happy to be joining a group of wonderful bloggers, each sharing their own Halloween themed tablescape. Much thanks to Rita from Panoply for hosting this tablescape blog hop!

The Halloween tablescape:
Upon first glance this doesn’t look very Halloweenish (is that even a word?). But Halloween doesn’t always have to be orange and black. Seriously! Did you see my pink Halloween mantel?
These white jack o’ lanterns are definitely an expression of Halloween! They are so much fun when the lights go down at night!
Halloween table place settings:
Each place setting is anchored with a black glitter charger plates. These are great for special occasions like New Year’s Eve, but fit my concept for this Halloween table, too!
The crystal water goblets and wine glasses are Navarre by Fostoria. I have never had good crystal and treated myself to these from Replacements.
The star of my place settings are the beautiful crimson and white dinner plates. These are Arcadia Crimson rimmed porcelain dinner plates that are both microwave and dishwasher safe.
Instead of topping each dinner plate with a salad plate, I selected the matching Caskata Arcadia Crimson canape plates.
Silverware handed down from my mother and her mother is Wild Rose by International. This is such a treasure as I know it is now being used and treasured by the third generation.
These bats are a great addition to any of your Halloween decorating ideas. Just $7.99 for 88 bats!
A white napkin was placed beside the forks. I placed a couple of mylar black bats on top of each of the napkins. I thought these would make great place cards, but there was no writing on the mylar!
I began my centerpiece with two garlands and three branches of these old maple leaves. These have been my favorite new fall decor item this season! You can find them on Etsy! These made a base for my white pumpkins.
The middle of the table holds a white faux pumpkin filled with a fresh flower arrangement of red roses and white babies breath.
My white jack o’ lanterns with their features painted black and filled with battery operated fairy lights are such fun!
Sticking some of the mylar bats to the white jack o’ lanterns added a bit to the spooky fun!
By removing the bats and jack o’ lanterns you could easily change up this for a fall tablescape.
