Tricks and treats for tables so chic it’s spooky
Though hard to believe, the holiday season is upon us again, christened by the advent of that fabled height of haunts, Halloween. As shadows lengthen and the air turns crisp, our entertaining fervor is reaching fever pitch!
A supernatural, chic affair is in order; one that’s ghoulish, graphic, and glamorous. Leave behind the usual suspects—skulls and bones be gone! —and make these tablescapes colorful, a little wild, and a lot lavish with centerpieces of colorful candy, dazzling confections, and nature’s bounty aplenty (hello pumpkins).
The best part? We let our favorite, year-round dining essentials do all the heavy lifting. With just a few festive tweaks, each piece is transformed into something spooky, chic, and impossible to forget!
Candy is king for a Halloween bash! One can never go wrong with mountains of sweets and savories, pumpkins, and confection-inspired hues scattered down the table for a happy, Halloween feast.
An off-white tablecloth creates a pleasing background for our brilliantly colored Sprinkles Placemats, with technicolor specks reminiscent of your favorite childhood candies. Atop this cheery foundation, we like to pack a punch with carbon-colored cutlery and white dishes topped with the most whimsical of pastries—sugar skull cookie, anyone?
Cluster Jack-o-Lanterns and pumpkins with a healthy helping of candy corn interspersed, and you’ve got yourself a happy holiday table!
Let Mother Nature’s bounty grace your next soiree.
We updated our favorite summer tablescape just in time for a harvest celebration. A light orange tablecloth zested up by our Woven Fringe Placemats and Coasters in shocking shades of orange and white, white porcelain plates, and our go-to glassware and bamboo cutlery look elegant and easy in the warm fall light.
For a centerscape that is sure to wow, select little pumpkins in shades of white and orange—variegated squashes are a cheery bonus—and weave them around simple vases of dahlias in the same hues.
The result is equal parts chic and cozy!
Want to host a party that is graphic without the gore? Opt for the most saturated hues of this season’s colors—orange, black, and white.
Lay down a richly colored tablecloth—we prefer this punchy orange number—and mark each place with our beaded Geo Placemats as your foundation. Matte black plates and cutlery add a touch of haunting drama. Tie dark-colored napkins with our Beaded Napkin Rings and set out smoked drinking glasses for spiked ciders or bourbon beverages. Pumpkins and gourds in happy shades of green and yellow top off this festive setting.
With your entertaining bones at the ready, let loose your spooky sensibilities and have fun creating spellbinding tables that are sure to keep your guests talking!
