5 Spooky Halloween Table Layouts To try

It’s October, and although the stores may be starting to show signs of Christmas and Thanksgiving, we have our sights solely set on Halloween. Fun, theatrical and a total excuse to be a kid whether you’re 8 or 80, Halloween provides the perfect excuse for us to let our hair down! In between planning our outfits, and searching for fake blood, we have come across some incredible Halloween table layouts that are sure to give your home that spooky edge!

Whether you’re having an at-home Halloween party, or just want to embrace the fun spirit of the season, these spooky Halloween table layouts have got you covered!

For The Kids

Halloween is made for kids, but to ensure the poor little ones don’t get nightmares, child-appropriate Halloween table layouts are a must! Keep the blood and gore aside and instead opt for cute ghosts, cartoon monsters and the odd eye ball here and there.

This Halloween table layout is a great example! It’s fun, colorful and still incorporates the ghoulish element of Halloween, but keeps it G-rated. Recreate by giving your table a black base with a table cloth. We recommend our hand embroidered rectangular tablecloth.  Add a sheer, spider-web like table runner and add a vibrant, orange-hued backdrop. The little ghosts can be recreated with cotton wool or by covering a stool with a white sheet.

Add cartoon monster stickers to elements of the decor to keep it fun and vibrant. Monster-themed foods and sweet treats will be a hit with the little ones!

For The Faint Hearted

If you want to keep your party spooky, but not too gorey, this orange and black Halloween table layout is for you! The food is still Halloween themed, yet isn’t as body-part orientated as many other table layouts.

Give your table a pumpkin-hued base with an orange table cloth. Add a striped black and white backdrop for something reminiscent of beetle juice. If your table doesn’t allow for a backdrop, opt for our monochrome two tone embroidered placements for the same vibe.

This table-scape is all about the serving presentation! Give black bowls eyes and legs and turn them into spiders, serve chilli or soup in mini cauldrons and scatter creepy crawlies around the table.

For The Family

Fun and easy Halloween table layouts can be a hit with the whole family! This simple orange and black layout is cheap to re-create, yet is still striking and fun.

Begin by adding a black table cloth to your table. Next, add two orange table runners for a pop of pumpkin.   Recreate this Halloween ‘tree’ by placing several large twigs in a transparent vase. Hand skeletons and spiderwebs on the twigs and add some fake arachnids to make it look super creepy.

One of the best things about the above layout is the way that the food has been organized by colors. Make it as striking as possible by placing white and orange foods on the black part of the table and vice versa.

For The Adults

You’re never too old for Halloween, but perhaps some of the childlike Halloween table layouts don’t really float your boat? This vintage and gothic table layout is perfect for a classy murder mystery themed Halloween do, or just an adult get together.

To make it unexpectedly creepy, begin to decorate your table with an air of vintage romance. A clean, white tablecloth and tall candles give the air of an ancient mansion.

Cover your candlesticks in faux cobwebs, add wispery cotton candy to wine glasses and watch your adult-appropriate Hallloween night unfold.

 

For The Dare Devils

Splatter an old pair of jeans and a shirt with blood, then add takeaway containers filled with meat to create faux organs.

This one is a NO if you have children though, it’s just a little bit too scary!
