Elegant Outdoor Halloween Table setting

Spooky Halloween? Or elegant Halloween?
I tend to lean towards the elegant side for sure.
And this year, I am playing a bit with some 'spooky' as well
but today... it is all about a moody elegant table setting.

I started out thinking about setting a simple halloween table.
With just a few bits and baubles that said 'ghosts and goblins' 
but in a subtle way.

I wanted some deep dark elements- like drippy black candles 

And some glam elements as well- like those gilded candlesticks, goblets and chargers.

I brought out a touch of copper
and those vintage brass goblets for a little more pizazz
and down the center of the table it was nothing but simple.
Dried flowers and greens in soft sage colors

And added a few ravens for a touch of spooky.

I kept the lighting moody with just candles and those string lights

And used rich dark fruits like plums, grapes and figs 
for a bit of deliciousness in the decor.

A simple not so spooky and a little bit elegant halloween table.

So excited to be joining these friends who are sharing a peek at their halloween decor today.

Happy Halloween decorating.
