Halloween is creeping on us, and for all your ghoulish gatherings, it’s imperative that your Halloween table sets a sinister scene for a fright night to remember. But there is a fine line between being creatively creepy and overly tacky. To help you achieve varying levels of spooky throughout your dinner parties, cocktail soirees, and candy-filled evenings, JCPenney brings you Halloween décor and classic pieces. Choose from jack-o’-lanterns, nutcrackers, and gothic tablecloths with a fun twist that will scare all who dare to ring your doorbell on October 31. So, what are you waiting for? Keep scrolling and tap into your creativity for a scary ride ahead!
A Creepy (But Cozy) Atmosphere
To begin with, it’s always a good idea to decide how much of a fright you want to give your guests. Dotting your table with faux cobwebs, spiders, skeletons, and skulls is one way to go about it (and overdone as well). But for those planning to take a simple route, the ominous glow of the candlelight can create an eerie yet cozy atmosphere along with jack-o’-lanterns. For instance, go for this black candle holder that will add a dose of creepiness to your tablescape. Choose candles of varying lengths and place fairy lights across the table for moody after-dinner drinks.
Lean On to Your Favorite Horror Movie Theme
Whether you’re a fan of family classics like Hocus Pocus or lean into the horror hall-of-famers like Friday the 13th, there are plenty of downright scary inspirations you can draw from. Bewitch everyone with the 90s horror movies with dark-colored placemats and a haunted backdrop with some fake cobwebs. Place a cauldron candy bowl set for that extra dose of spookiness. Finally, light up an LED jack-o’-lantern or skulls when the witchy hour starts.
The Eerie-sistable Monochromes
Keeping your table black and white is the easiest way to keep your décor seasonal and perennially chic. Start with a checkered tablecloth and tie the look together with gothic plate sets. Also, give your décor a rustic vibe with a spooky edge by placing black napkins. Juxtapose your table décor with this elegant tier bowl set and a ghost candy bowl set. Elevate the theme with fabric gnomes which also serve as a cute centerpiece to fit the theme. For the dining chairs, you could drape them with sheets to give your room a ruined look.
No matter what theme you choose, leave some tricky and picky bits on your table like a bowl of crisps, nuts, and Halloween-themed cookies. This will make your guests feel welcomed and give your décor a lived-in feel. You could also have a few wrapped cupcakes piled up, chocolates in paper cones, or patterned paper tied to a string! Because who doesn’t like picking yummy treats when they come home from the cold?
