I don’t always go for creepy or scary when styling a Halloween tablescape, but these creepy doll Halloween decorations that I found at Michaels this year got me thinking! If you can’t find these doll parts at Michaels you could pick us some baby dolls at your local dollar store and take them apart.
This tablescape was more about the centerpiece than the place settings. The place settings are my rustic grapevine placemats topped with simple black dinner plates. I love the contrast of the rustic with the refined, so for this woody and rustic tablescape I used my Mother’s hand-me-down silver and my vintage crystal.

If you want to host a Halloween Party, this is a fun theme. This Halloween table setting can be adapted easily to Halloween table decorations for a party table. I use these black plates most every Halloween. I didn’t show them, but I will offer up black napkins with a piece of creepy cloth tied around them as a napkin rings
The creepy doll heads from Michaels seemed like the perfect thing to use for place cards. I simply took a permanent marker and added guests’ names to them. I opted for the creepy place cards in place of Halloween patterned salad plates.

The candles add an eerie glow as the sun sets. The candle holders I used were simple votives to not detract from the eerie feel of the Halloween centerpiece. You could always opt to use a black tablecloth beneath a centerpiece like this.
I used some pieces of driftwood to stand in for rotting logs in the woods. By bending and tucking the stems of flowers and Succulents in dark colors contributed to the eerie look of the table. Spanish moss could be added to this table centerpiece in place of some of the other elements.
I used a faux moss table runner down the center of the table and arranged the wood the faux mushrooms and doll parts in three little clusters on the runner.
Spooky decor on the dining room table is great way to get into the Halloween spirit.
I think this table really brings the creepy factor! If you can’t find the swamp flowers, you might want to use some dead flowers in your centerpiece.
The wine glasses and the water glasses are Rose Point by Cambridge.
I already have plans for these doll parts for next year and it won’t be part of a tablescape! Happy Halloween!
