Dark and Spooky Night Halloween Tablescape

Dark and Spooky Night Halloween Tablescape

I am happy to once again be hosting a tablescape blog hop!  This time it is all about Halloween!  There are so many different themes for Halloween that I am sure all of the participants will bring something different to their tables.  I managed to style a Halloween table without one witch, or bat or skeleton this year! 

I brought out my thick moss table runner and added a few small gray pumpkins.  Little black lanterns with battery operated candles flickering inside add to the ambiance of this table.

The textures of the table settings are so interesting, a twig and vine placemat topped with a more formal charger with ornate ornamentation.  Dark silver/black salad plates sat upon gray dinner plates.  The chargers can be found on Wayfair here:  Black chargers.

Each salad plate is topped with another little miniature lantern with a glowing candle adding atmosphere to this candlelit table.  The moss runner was topped with lanterns, black painted bottles with tapers in them and small gray votive candles. Slate gray and charcoal napkins were knotted together for a casual look.  

My stemware choice was easy, a smoky gray water goblet and silverplate wine goblets. 

A few little gray pumpkins were nestled near bottles painted with chalky black paint.  Silver goblets were washed clean, but not polished to add to the spooky feel.

Style this table with these items:

Gray dinner plates
Black Chargers
Small Lanterns
Medium Lanterns 
Moss Table Runner
Silverplate Goblets
Gray Wine Goblets

Now…Let’s see how all of these bloggers styled their Halloween tablescapes!

  1. Chloe, this is a very chic way to style for the season without tipping the gory or cheeky side of things, and I love it! It’s like walking through a fogging night, perhaps on the edge of a cemetery. The lighting, the subdued color schemes in the black chargers, gray plates and silver goblets all come together nicely for that eerie look. Well done!

  12. Chloe, this is amazing. Your tablescape gives me a feeling of walking through a London graveyard on a cold, foggy, eerie night. The old streetlights are on, but cast a faint, flow in the thick, moist night. The moss really adds to the idea of moisture in the air. The textures really express the outdoor feel to your table. Really an awesome Halloween tablescape!
