Halloween seems to bring out the kid in me as you’ll see in with this tablescapes creation! Skulls are everywhere this Halloween, and a must to get your scary on! I hope you enjoy the fun I had in creating this just for you! I think it is sophisticated enough for an adult dinner party. Who would you invite for a bit of bone chilling soup?
In creating any tablescapes remember it’s all in the layering and you’ll start with the basic as I did here with the pure white tablecloth, followed by the black spider web square table topper as you can see the white below allows the black cut out topper to really stand out. Creepy isn’t it!
As you’ll soon see it’s all about layer after layer that creates a fun tablescapes that is sure to feed the eye and delight the senses. When I saw the Willow House Monarch Grand Lantern, I knew it was a piece I would enjoy! It certainly is a show stopper and looks perfect in the center of the table, add a glitter skull with some Spanish moss underneath and you start to create that eerie Halloween feel. I searched for the a black crow which I knew if wired to the top of the Monarch Grand Lantern would look perfect.
I happened to find not only the Skull, Black Crow with eyes that light up and blink but also a black feathered Owl, with the same eyes that light up red and blink at Randee and Company! Frightful fun isn’t it!
Although the Monarch Grand Lantern is a statement piece I still need to make it more of a focal point, with the black feathered wreath from last year’s find, it created the addition and worked beautifully with the black feathers of both the crow and owl!
Using the Willow House Villa Stoneware dinner plate, I folded the black napkin and wrapped it to create a band which in turn would make the Cinnabar Accent Plate in the blood curling red to pop! The only big splash of color and what a bit of fun the red creates! Do you agree?
Topping the Willow House Cinnabar Accent Plates is the Willow House Amelia Thimble Dome, the perfect place to add another layer of fun as well as a party favor! The Eyeball is actually a hand soap purchased at the Basket Loft. To help complete the look I added a bit more Spanish moss which keep the eyeball from rolling around the saucer. Just to tie the look I added a black feather under each of the Willow House Amelia Thimble Domes, again the black and the red pop against each other! Adding a little wire spider that I purchased at Right at Home in Park City makes on shiver looking at the orange beady eyes!
Can you see how the glass of the Willow House Amelia Thimble Domes and the Emerson Stemware helps to clean up the table? That is what glass can do any time you feel that your décor or table is becoming a bit too much! Glass cleans up the look!
The Skulls you see sitting in front of the Willow House Adelaide Flatware and the Gallery Flatware were purchased last year from Pottery Barn along with the Spanish moss and straw mice that you can see in the Willow House Demibottles Trio.
Adding a bottle of Spider Wine in the Willow House Belle Meade Three-in-one Container finishes the look and is ready for dinner guests! The Wine label is in Martha Stewarts Halloween line this year.
