Eat Drink and Be Scary: Simple Black Halloween Table Setting Ideas
Create A Black Halloween Table Setting This Year
You don't need a lot to put together an eerie black Halloween table setting for a dinner party. You just need a bit of imagination and a few great black pieces.
On this page you will find a lot of Halloween table setting ideas. Everything you need to create a black, goth-themed tablescape including black tablecloths, dishes and glasses plus gothic centerpieces, candleholders and more.
Just pick and choose a few great Halloween items and incorporate them with some of the things that you already own and love and you'll have a masterful Halloween table.
Some of the items featured on this page are not black, in case you think all black is too much for you and some are versatile and will work all year long. Many items are also available in other colours but remember that a basic black tablecloth is perfect on Halloween but can also be dressed for New Year's Eve. Handsome French pressed glassware is ideal for drinking those blood red punches at Halloween but also useful all year long.

Like This Waechtersbach Fun Factory 16-Piece Dinnerware Set
Use this set for everyday or for Halloween, you can even mix and match it with other Waechtersbach pieces to create a totally unique table setting.
A service for four will allow you to set a complete Halloween table with black dishes.
Or Even Just Four Black Dinner Plates
A set of dinner plates will allow you to set a dinner table -- without all the accessory pieces -- but with other Halloween themed accents or even your ordinary, day-to-day dishes.
And Halloween Glasses
If you find a lot of black a bit too much, try adding a shot of purple or green to your table setting. I love this handsome Lolita Wicked Witch Martini Glass, which would really pop on a black tablescape.
La Rochere French Glasses
I love these La Rochere French glasses. They are simple, yet appropriate and you can use them all year long! At Halloween, they'd look great with a serving of your best bloody wine...
And A Gothic Centerpiece
And At Least A Few Halloween Themed Candles
Skull & Skeleton Tea Light Candle Holder Votive
An interesting skull and skeleton themed votive candle holder adds a macabre element to the best set Halloween table!
Or Maybe You Would Prefer A Gargoyle Candle Holder
This, ah, cute little buy will add a vintage maybe even Dracula-themed feel to your tablescape.
