Halloween Dinner PartyTablescape

My vision for a Halloween Dinner Party ~  Haunted Mansion 

A Refined Vintage display of creepy elegance... 
My plan was to do this as inexpensively as possible using what I already owned and a few purchased items from the Dollar store and Jo Ann's. 

Using  plain and glittered skulls from the Dollar store as my inspiration I set about creating a Halloween tablescape.

Using differing size size skulls, I placed them in and around glass snifters and hurricanes I already had. The tablecloth is a piece of cut fabric from JoAnn's, a lacy black spider web design that lets the tables' deep wood grain peek through, and no hemming! Just measure your table and add about six inches on all sides for overhang,

The cobwebby table runner is an ivory "spider web" score from the dollars store.
 (I ended up using these and black ones all over the house,
my favorite $ store find!) 
Antique Salt & Pepper shakers fit with my creepy elegance theme. 

   A deep red glass vase holds fresh white roses (bought for the party) accented with sparkly branches from my Christmas decorations, a few sprigs of glittery gold baby's breath and red crystals ( Christmas Decorations) accent the white candle in the pedestal hurricane, 


I printed creepy vintage Halloween photos and placed them in small vintage brass frames. A velvety black spider (another dollar store find) sits upon rocks I already had. Crystal bead napkin rings were draped on the satin brass candlesticks to bring a touch of red and sparkle.

A glittery silver skull rests upon a vintage brass candle base.  The opalescent candle holder adds a bit of sparkle. I added a silk red rose spray for a bit of the red accent color.

At the right end of the table, 
three skulls are placed around a glass candle holder in a vintage brandy snifter

Elegant and Creepy at the Same time. Perfect for a  Refined Vintage Halloween Dinner Party.

I Hope you are inspired to create a Halloween Tablescape. 
I would love to hear what you are decorating with for Halloween.
