How to dress a dining table for Halloween

Whether you’ve got children or not, adding a bit of Halloween decor is fun way to give your home a seasonal spin. From embracing a full-on black and orange theme to going for a more sophisticated look, there are plenty of ways to add a bit of a ghoulish twist to your dining room so that it’s ready for Halloween get-togethers or fancy dress dinner parties.

Enchanted decor

Halloween doesn’t have to mean tacky plastic accessories and if you want a more grown-up look, you can create it with a few token accessories that add a more subtle nod to the seasonal celebration. Munchkins, mini pumpkins, look super cute displayed on a table and you don’t have to worry about carving them. Add some gold candles, burnished leaves gathered on walks and you’re all set for a spooky yet stylish soiree.

If you want to keep your table free for the feast you’re serving up, consider giving your sideboard a haunted twist for the spooky season. A simple and affordable way to transform the space is to decorate with paper lanterns and some faux seasonal leaves, plus after Halloween you can simply remove the pumpkins and enjoy an autumnal display.
