Haunted Mansion Tablescape

Another Haunted Mansion motion picture is coming out soon! It is time to feature this spooky tablescape inspired by Disney’s Haunted Mansion ride. Perfect timing for some Halloween fun!

There are so many different ways to style Halloween tables. I wanted to style this one with a distinctive haunted mansion vibe.

Living here in the shadow of Walt Disney World, you must know that I am a Disney fan.  One of my favorite attractions is The Haunted Mansion.  I knew I would have so much fun styling this table when I discovered these haunted mansion floor plan salad plates.

Tall wooden candlesticks that are distressed and being painted black.

I have a collection of chunky wooden candlesticks. To help set a spooky scene, I gave these all a coat of black paint.

Black wooden candlesticks with faux candles on them that are glowing.

After being transformed with black spray paint I topped the candleholders with spooky glowing candles.

A table set with white dishes and a purple and black spooky table runner.

I had seen these table linens before, but never had the need for them.  This table runner is similar to the Haunted Mansion wallpaper.  This would set the scene for my tablescape.

No bright colors were incorporated on this decorated table, it is all about dark and moody. I set my dining table and pulled the drapes to help make the dining room feel more snug and intimate. The candles displayed down the center of the table make this such a spooky setting.

My place settings were anchored by decorative black chargers. I originally topped them with black dinner plates before adding the haunted mansion salad plates. I felt like the place settings needed some contrast and changed the black plates out for mulberry Fiesta dinner plates picking up the the color scheme from the table runner.

Master Gracey was a wealthy man who was a prominent member of the family which owned the Haunted Mansion.   At Walt Disney World the home is suggested as being located in New York, and in New Orleans in Disneyland.

To coordinate with the color scheme, I selected a purple water glass and a black wine glass.

Patterned halloween napkins were not necessary for this beautiful tablescape. Instead my napkins are a simple selection of layered plum and black napkins tied with a black ribbon.  You could always choose to use napkin rings or even a skeleton hand holding the napkins. I chose black flatware that coordinated so well with a spooky vibe to it.

There are a number of different stories about the bride and the different masters of the Haunted Mansions, but in my fantasy, the bride does some killing with an axe.  My axe has only chopped wood over the years…many, many years.  I added fresh flowers in a bridal bouquet to my halloween table decorations.

Perhaps the bride hid the axe among her wedding bouquet. 

Is that a single red rose in the bride’s bouquet or is it a touch of blood…?

  1. So spooky Chloe! I loved Clue growing up, definitely my favorite game! I loved Ann’s clever tablescape and post and your’s is just as intriguing and fun! I love the touches of mystery you suggested with the single red rose and axe, and the black, purple and orange are fantastic! Happy Halloween!
    {Oh and great plates!!}

  2. The tablescape is perfection. Love the charger plates and flatware. They really help to set it off. Gothic is going to be my theme this year. I might have to add an axe too. Cannot wait for fall.

    1. Thank you so much Karen! This was early for me this year, but with the movie coming out, I wanted to get ahead of it! I love that idea, Gothic! My mind is already swimming with all of the possibilities! I am beyond ready for Fall, too! I hope you are staying cool wherever you are!
