Choosing Halloween Table Decorations and Place Settings

Whether you are hosting a dinner, a child's party, or a spooky haunted house, having the right Halloween table decorations can really finish your room. Halloween is a great occasion to throw a party and provides many fun options for decorating.

There are many Halloween-themed table decorations. Once you decide what type of Halloween gathering you are having, you can choose from many options to match your style. Start with a great tablecloth, and then build with candles, dishes, and glasses to match. Or, keep most of your decor simple and find one or two Halloween items.

A spooky set of candles can make a great Halloween centerpiece. There are many fun candles available. Look for a cute Halloween pattern, or set the mood with old lantern-style candles. For a creepy, haunted house style decor, these lanterns are the perfect choice.

Halloween Plates and Place Settings

If you are using bold tablecloths, centerpieces, and candles, you may want to keep your plates simple. A solid black or white place setting would be a great option. However, if you keep your other decorations simple you might want to go all out with your tableware. Appetizer plates are a great way to show off your Halloween spirit.
