I do love to entertain for the Halloween! How about you? I always have so many Halloween tablescape ideas that it is often difficult to decide what my Halloween party tablescape is going to be! This year I decided to go with all gold and black!
I am so happy to be joining twenty other bloggers in a Halloween Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by Rita from Panoply! At the end of this post, make sure you spend some time touring all of the tables created by these talented table stylists!
Halloween Tablescape Place Setting:
The place setting for my Halloween table is rather simple this year. Gold beaded placemats I have had for years set off the ornate black chargers from the black tablecloth. You could get a similar look by alternating black plates with a gold charger. Pops of gold make this tablescape elegant!
This modern gold flatware set was just perfect! I bought this back in January 2021. I wanted to make sure I share the link with you today, because it is currently on sale at 41% OFF! You can find it and purchase it here.
Glass gold leaf dinner plates make for an elegant Halloween tablescape.
I selected clear glass crystal stemware for serving water and wine at my Halloween dinner. I considered black wine glasses, but I thought the table was getting a little dark. Clear glass always reflects nicely and adds a little sparkle in the candlelight.
How to fold a napkin like a bat:
I almost used skeleton hand napkin rings for this tablescape. I don’t usually bother with creative napkin folding, but with a very simple plate stack for this tablescape. Black napkins were folded into these elegant bat shapes. I am giving myself a bonus point for the creative napkin folding!
Begin with a good quality cloth napkin freshly laundered and ironed.
Use square napkins. Mine are 18 inches square.
Fold up the second wing and you have a bat!

14 inch gold taper candles add to the opulent feel of this Halloween table setting.
I found these fantastic black bird foot candle holders at Target. These are no longer available for shipping, but I found plenty of stores that still have some availability! Hurry and get these to add their creepy vibe to your table setting!
The center of the table is piled high with golden skulls and gold faux pumpkins.
This guy has a definite ghoulish glam look about him as he peers out from around the black painted wine bottles.
If you already own gold candleholders, you can always use black candles with them for a similar look.
Extra tall taper candles add to the elegant, yet somewhat spooky feel of my table. A combination of creepy bird foot candle holders and recycled wine bottles painted with flat black spray paint hold the tall tapers.
A Special Guest:
Lily is all ready for Halloween! She actually got a witch costume for trick or treating but to sit at the table, she has donned her black lacy eye mask.

Additional Dining Room Decor:
I don’t have a sideboard in my dining room, but I have this small console table. This is the perfect place to add a little more Halloween decor to the room. I created this black and gold raised serving tray with Dollar Tree skulls. You can see a short video of how I made it here. Adding a few skeleton hands from Dollar Tree that I also painted gold add to the creep affect.
More Halloween Tablescapes:
If you prefer a black and white Halloween tablescape, you might like this black and white theme I styled for this Halloween table.
Paint cheap Dollar Tree creepy crawlies white to set on black napkins for a creative table setting!
Host an elegant Halloween dinner party and serve up your shrimp cocktail on a skeleton hand! Extra creepy if you drip the cocktail sauce out like blood!!
