Spooky, Scary, Skeletons... No-Not Really!

There are many different ways to create a Halloween tablescape. Anything goes... from kid-friendly options, to spooky and scary, elegant and neutral or even just using casual paper good products! The only trick I suggest is to have fun while your creating your table and to make it BOOOOTIFUL!!!!

For my table I went with a skeleton theme.


Everything you'll need to recreate this look:

  • Black lace runner

  • Black lace placemats

  • Black plates (ceramic)

  • Skeleton plates (paper)

  • White napkins

  • Glassware

  • Gold silverware

  • Creepy hands (these glow in the dark)

  • 6 Skeleton heads

  • Black candle holders

  • 9 White Candles (9 dinner candles, plus 2 in the glass votives)

  • 2 glass votives

  • Snake Candle holder

  • 2 Witch hats

Setting your table:

1- I bought 3 lace runners and used one as a runner down the middle of the table. Then I took the other lace runners and I cut them and used it as place mats.

2- Next, I layered the placemats with the black plates, white napkins and skeleton plates.

3- Then, I placed the Snake candle holder on the black runner in the center of the table, followed by the 3 sets of tapered candle holders on each side of the snake. I also added 2 additional white candles (I just wanted a little extra for contrast) in between the black candle holders.

4- I placed the 6 skeleton heads on the lace table runner in between the candle holders.

5- Then I finished the table settings with the gold and white silverware and added the creepy hands to finish it off.

6- I followed this by placing the candles in the candle holders.

7- Last I hung 2 witches hats above the tablescape from my chandelier - now the look is complete!

Some of these items I had already and others were bought. My shopping suggestions are linked at the bottom of this post. ⬇️⬇️

I'm not always able to link the dollar store items - however, I will give an alternative to use. ⬇️⬇️

After playing around with the skeleton heads... lol!! This is the final version I went with ⬆️⬆️

This tablescape was fairly easy to create. I was trying to achieve a minimal look - I didn't want there to be too much going on! This tablescape can easily be changed by replacing skeletons to bats, ghosts, witches hats, broomsticks or something way less scarier for younger ones!
