Happy Halloween friends! No tricks over here, just all sweet treats with this Black and White Halloween Romance table! I really don’t enjoy the scary side of Halloween and since I am a hopeless romantic at heart, I couldn’t resist giving this spooky holiday a true love twist. Black and white is such a classic combination made even more enchanting for this bewitching day with a few whimsical spiderwebs, some gorgeous lace, and a few golden hearts – a wonderful combination for a romantic dinner party, or of course a Halloween wedding!
This table began with this spiderweb tablecloth that I found at HomeGoods recently. The spiders are definitely more on the cute end of the Halloween scale. You could easily use it for a casual children’s party but I had a more challenging idea in mind – to use it here – for a grown up Halloween table (with a soft edge). Nothing says drama like lace and this gorgeous black sequined lace (which my mom found at JoAnn Fabrics store – yay mom!!) remarkably elevates this cloth to glamorous!
Repeating the black and white theme, I used a white dinner plate (from Target), a Royal Staffordshire black and white salad plate (from HomeGoods) and a vintage white tea saucer at each placesetting. But what really makes it special are the mini golden mercury glass hearts (affiliate link) that I placed atop the napkin rings.
The hearts are actually mini ornaments, I tucked tiny sprigs of spray painted boxwood through the ring at the top to soften the look. You know this would be adorable at Christmas too, right?!
I love this peek-a-boo shoot through the chair, don’t you? Oh that everyday we could just sit at lovely tables and daydream, ahhh…. it’s what makes me so happy about these settings that I create for us here – even if we don’t physically sit together, we at least get to dream together!
For the centerpiece I used three varied height black pillar candle holders (from Target). These have holes in the sides and at night it would be so pretty to put a tap light or something in there so they would glow – but that will be a project for another day…
I wanted a pop of color to break up the monochromatic look but I didn’t have enough live flowers left in my yard to pull it off – so, you guessed it, I used faux flowers. BUT, I did something a little unusual… I mixed in some pieces of REAL greenery (snipped from my yard) and in my opinion, it totally works here! Don’t you love knowing that you can mix real and fake and get such a great look? I sure do!
And there we have it! A Romantic Halloween table to bewitch you and your sweetheart. Or, it would also make a wonderful setting if you were having a book club dinner around Halloween too! I hope you found an idea or two to inspire.
