Pretty scary Halloween tablescape

I like to do Halloween decorating more pretty then creepy.  So I think that I combined enough pretty and scary to make this tablescape work.


The black and white theme works well in my kitchen.  The plate setting is more pretty while the centerpiece is a little creepy.  I placed the skull inside my candy dish that looks like skeleton hands.  I just removed the dish and added some spanish moss.


The plates are more pretty.  I first started with a black charger, then a white charger, another black charger, a white plate and last my salad plates.  They have four different designs.

A skull


 A spider

 A pumpkin



 A bat


I just used my script napkins and placed a spider on each one.  I also added some black and white beads and a black and white straw inside the glasses.


I think that I accomplished the look I was going for.  A little bit of scary mixed with some pretty.

    1. Thank you Fabby. This is about as scary as I like to go. I got the skull at Goodwill. His jaw is hinged so you can put it in different positions.

  2. I also like Halloween a bit more "pretty" than "scary" and I think you've done a great job of combining them. I really like how you have the mice/rats standing up and looking at that skull - perfect! Love those salad plates and also how you did up the glasses with extra decor. The script napkins look terrific with the spider embellishment. Going back to pin!
