Coming up with Halloween table decorations is always great fun. Thankfully it’s easy to create a spooky atmosphere at this time of year. These suggestions should help get you going, and they’re all perfect for the whole family to put together.
Halloween Table Decoration Ideas
You knew that pumpkin would be on this list somewhere, didn’t you? But there are many ways to display your pumpkin proudly, besides a basic carving. You could decorate the base of the pumpkin with fall leaves, use the pumpkin as a vase for a big display of flowers/ leaves, or even spray the pumpkin black to create a Halloween-themed pumpkin and spider web display.
2. Body Parts
These are the kind of Halloween table decorations that kids just love to help you make! Get yourself some Halloween eyeballs and dot them around the table, or go one step further and create your own Halloween specimen jars. You and your kids can work together to find a range of vegetables to represent different body parts.
3. A Witches Hat
This is another hugely popular idea for a Halloween centerpiece, and it isn’t difficult to see why! This can be as simple as buying a cheap witches hat from a Halloween costume store and decorating it with spiders, bats and any other Halloween-themed items. If you were feeling adventurous, you could make a huge Halloween witch hat cake to place in the middle of the table.
Get creative with some candles to create the perfect atmosphere with your Halloween table decorations. The gothic theme works best for this, so stick to black candlestick holders and long, thin candlesticks. You can use this as a centerpiece, and place smaller candles all around the table. Turn the lights off to create the spooky atmosphere you want at a Halloween party. Remember to be careful about where you place any real candles, especially if they’re near flammable material or could easily be knocked over.
No matter which Halloween table decorations you ultimately choose, you should buy a themed tablecloth as the backdrop of your display. The simplest option is to buy a plain black cloth and decorate it with what goes on the table. Some tablecloths are already decorated with bats, skulls and other Halloween imagery.
Around Halloween it’s easy to find skulls available to buy in stores. Some of them are suitable for holding a tea light candle, adding to the atmosphere. Or you could use them as candy jars to gross people out every time they want to reach for a treat!
With these Halloween Table Decorations, you can be sure to bring the Halloween spirit into your home.
