Spooky Elegant Halloween Table Setting

Since it is almost Halloween... 
and all things trick or treating
I thought an enchanted table setting might be a fun twist on traditional.

Something to charm and bewitch you
with frosted black garlands on the table

and flickering candles setting the mood.

Plus a bit of gold glamour to add that touch of elegance.

The other day, I shared a mantel styling as well as a sideboard
styling using this beautiful spooky garland
and as I played with the candles and details I was inspired by the mix of gold and black and
I thought why not show another use for those same elements.

I started with the garlands- which are battery operated if you would like to light them up- 
and I simply placed them down the center of the table.

to create a spooky garland centerpiece.

My farmhouse table is a bit wonky these days 
which only added to the charm of the setting in my opinion-

I brought those LED lanterns outside for a bit of ambiance at your feet.

And those candelabras with flickering candles to add a bit of charm.

I used all the same elements from Balsam Hill that I used the other day in this post
but this is a whole new look and styling for a spooky Halloween party.

  1. Now I'm wondering who's showing up for dinner? That table setting is a little chilling. Love it!

  2. You set a very elegant and moody table for Halloween. I hope where you live, the fires are not near you. The destruction of lives, towns and winerys is terrible. Take care, Kathleen in Az

  3. Wow, Courtney, it's creeptastic. I love the foliage runner down the middle of your table!

  4. When thrift shopping I'm always looking for pretty vintage plates to mix & match! I love eclectic collections. They make things more interesting! Your place settings are beautiful and I love your decorating style!

  5. Very cool and elegant Halloween decorations. This is the first year I decorated for fall and not Halloween. This makes me miss it! Maybe next year I'll do both. I love the gold on the dinnerware! Very pretty. I could see it out at Christmastime too. Greenery, gold, and candelabras....and I LOVE wonky farmhouse tables.


  6. This looks like loads of frightful fun! I can see this set up close to a fire pit, with lights strung from trees, and jack-o-lanterns strewn about the area. Perfect fall party!

  7. It looks wonderful. My Granddaughter would love it too. She loves everything about Halloween.

  8. Beautiful and elegant, and yet bewitching as well! Love this table setting! Anyone invited to share in a meal would be honored!

  9. Checking my mail every day for my invitation to this party.

  10. Love love love the garland and the candles - so elegant!!
