You wouldn’t normally think of flowers when planning a Halloween table, but I was inspired by these salad plates.
A rust-colored linen runner was casually arranged down the middle of the table and then topped with faux flowers and leaves.
When I spotted these salad plates with these skulls bedecked with flowers, I was inspired. I knew I would use bold florals in the same colors as those on the plates.
Skulls were added to the faux flowers to recreate the look of the plates.
I used Dollar Tree skulls to decorate this table. Giving my skulls a light spray of white paint made them more closely match the skulls on the plates.
A rust-orange napkin was selected for linens and knotted with a skeleton hand and arm tucked through each knot. The skeleton pieces were sets of salad tongs from Dollar Tree. At 50 cents each, those were bargains for adorning the napkins and place settings.
Additional skeleton arms with hands were tucked into the floral runner centerpiece.
The skull adorned plates came in four different colors, gray, purple, orange and black. Dark gray diner plates are a bargain from Walmart. Setting the salad plates off center allowed space for the napkin to rest on the edge of the dinner plates.
Bone colored handled flatware seemed like an obvious choice for this setting. Black embellished chargers set atop gold web-like placemats.
This will be the a festive dinner for ten of us to celebrate the Halloween season!
The sideboard holds some tall candle holders adorned with more skulls and faux flowers to continue the theme.
Of course when the sun goes down and the chandelier is dimmed, the table takes on a warm, perhaps sinister glow.
