When you enter the castle, one of the first things that you see is the dining room. It’s also one of the first places that I start decorating for holidays. Since it’s October, it’s time to set my Halloween table. This year’s theme is a witchy Halloween dining table.
There are some constants on my Halloween dining table. The first being a witches hat. Each year I pull out my witch’s hat and give it new ribbons and decor.
Along with my witch’s hat, my table scape features an orange, white and black runner.
The table scape is finished out with berry vines, glitter pumpkins and glittery hot pink sticks.
I don’t buy a lot of new things when decorating for holidays, but try and mix up a few new things with the old.
My Halloween place setting is a purple placemat, followed by an orange metallic charger.
The dishes are almost always white, topped with fun themed salad plates.
I found four of these “Wiccan Lace” plates last year at Home Goods.
Which worked perfectly on my kitchen table, however I needed four more for the formal dining room.
I was super lucky to find another four at Home Goods again this year.
Each plate has a different theme.
A witch, a skull, a haunted house and a black cat.
I used my favorite black and white polkadot bandanas for napkins.
All tied up in a pretty black bow and topped with a shiny spider.
A few weeks ago I was grocery shopping and saw these cute light up eyeballs.
I figured that they would be perfect for a placecard holders, until I saw the price.
At 5.99 each, times 8, that was a bit much for a one time decorating accessory.
However, a few days after that, I was a Michael’s and found eyeball ornaments and knew that I could make my own.
Especially, since I had everything to make them except the eye balls.
Turns out, I was able to make 8 of those light up eyeballs for under 10.00.
I plan on sharing how to make those with you soon!
After I had made the light up eyeballs, for a little fun I also made place cards that featured famous Witches in history.
Another thing that I always use is my hanging spiders.
They are super cute and shiny hanging from the chandelier.
I added hanging bulbs to the mix, since I wasn’t going to use them on the stair rail this year.
All in all, I truly do love my witchy Halloween dining table.
I think it would be perfect for a fun ladies “witches” luncheon, don’t you?
Until next time…
