Halloween Tablescape and a Tour of Tables!

A Batty Halloween Tablescape

I am so happy to be hosting another tablescape blog hop this week featuring the talents of almost 20 bloggers.  This coming weekend is the perfect time to invite friends for a casual meal and set a Halloween themed table!  

I set a fairly simple table for Halloween this year, something anyone could re-create for themselves.  Simple orange and black striped fabric was fashioned into a runner for my table.

These adorable scrapbook paper sheets with the silly bats caught my eye and I decided would make perfect placemats for my “batty” tablescape.  The black bat appetizers came from Home Goods.

I kept my centerpiece simple with a pretty black basket trimmed with Halloween ribbons and filled with green and orange balls and foam bats.  I added a couple of black plastic cauldrons filled with Halloween candies.

Foam bats were cut with a slit and placed on the edges of my gray goblets.  Additional foam bats were used as napkin rings with just a pair of cuts in the middle of them.

I have eyed this fun flatware for some time now at World Market and decided to take the plunge and add it to my flatware collection, these are so perfect for so many occasions, but they particularly lend themselves to Halloween, don’t you think?

Take a few minutes and visit all of these blogs for a plethora of different interpretations of Halloween tablescapes!

  1. Your table drives me batty Chloe! 😉 Genius to use the scrapbook paper sheets as placemats and use the foam bats as napkin and glass embellishments! Love your colorful and festive centerpiece too. Thanks so much for all your organizing efforts for the blog hop this week. It’s always a pleasure to join you at the table no matter what the season. ♥

  2. Ditto what Mary said! Your happy, colorful kid-friendly tablescape brought a smile to my face. I’ll bet your granddaughters loved it! The clever use of disposable scrapbook paper as placemats and cutting slits in the foam bats were my favorite takeaway ideas. Adding the bats to glasses is a great way to transform any glass into a Halloween one. You could even use a white paint marker to add names to double-duty as place cards.

  3. Chloe, what a fun table that you have created with such cute details. The scrapbook sheets make wonderful placemats and also quite clever! I have enjoyed following along on this blog hop!

  4. Ooh, that’s wickedly attractive, Chloe! Love your centerpiece and the way the table looks to be laid out in diagonals.

  11. Chloe, this tablescape was so cute and so much fun. I love the idea to use scrapbook paper – never though of it! And I covet that flatware. I can imagine so many times that could be used and add some panache to any vignette. Thanks again for hosting this!

  12. Help! I’m seeing bats everywhere! Is there no cure? Perhaps a couple little girl’s happy faces will do the trick. Great job my friend. I love your inspiration with the scrapbook pages and glad you took the plunge with the black “clef” flatware. I think we all have them and like you said, they are perfect for so many tablescapes and are definitely not a one trick pony. (Every little bit helps)
    I love all the bats and the centerpiece is gorgeous.
    Thank you for putting this blog hop together as well as all the others we have had and are in the planning stages… as I know how much work it is and now that you have an extended family, you are even more amazing. (I am still wanting to “copy” that beautiful wreath) …I know I keep saying I am going to do it and show it to you but now that my foot is broken….it is just one more thing that is put off until another time. 🙁
    Always fun to be a part of your blog hops my friend.

  13. Chloe your little bats are so fun! I immediately smiled when I saw the placemats, and I love that you used scapbook paper! I have been looking at all the pretty papers as alternatives to expensive placemats for tablescape hops. Now I see that they look great and I couldn’t even tell! Your cute jack-o-lanterns and bats just seem so fun for Trick-or-Treat and made me excited to see all the kids on Trick-or-Treat night!

  21. Hi Chloe

    What a fun table!Everything lends itself to the spirit of the occasion. About your flatware, I agree 100%. Everything about them screams Halloween. The first time I saw them, I thought that I had to buy them too. One of the Hubby’s favorite movies is “A Nightmare Before Christmas”. That’s exactly what this set of flatware reminds me of when I looked ad them The curling handles are reminiscent of the designs in the movie. Well done.
