Outdoor Halloween Table Décor Ideas with Tutorials
Utilizing that extra space of your garden can be quite helpful if you don’t have enough space indoors for accommodating all your guests.
1. Classic Pumpkin-Themed Buffet Table Decoration
Some tissue pom poms in white, black, and orange can ideally adorn your table. You can also keep a chalkboard with a happy Halloween write up. Use all objects in those three shades to maintain uniformity. However, more the merrier, so add Halloween mason jar candles, pumpkins and anything that suits the theme.
2. Creepy Black and White Table Decoration
For a gothic décor, you can put crystal balls, napkins with horrifying prints, and tall candlesticks. It would be like dining at a planchet table with spirits and ghosts accompanying you. Look at the following image for a coherent idea and set the table to turn on the mood. You may also incorporate glowing hanging light pods and hang skull masks for setting up the ambience. Your guests will love the theme more if you dress up as Morticia Addams from “The Adams Family.”
3. Cute Jack-o’-lantern-Theme Based Decoration
Place a long table in your garden and use neat pumpkins, spider web coasters, and Halloween table trees with a predominating orange theme to suit the spirit of the party. Also, make sure to have the food and their garnishing to match the occasion. You can make these spider web fudge muffins for a tea party. Keep some homemade Jack-o’ lanterns here and there to make a perfect table for the party.
4. Halloween Candy Table
If you are to throw a Halloween themed baby shower party for your bestie, keep a candy buffet table with a writing “It’s a Boy” or “It’s a Girl”, or simply the best “it’s a surprise”. The table should be full of sweet treats for all those angels joining the party with their moms. If you are low on budget, then instead of keeping a separate table for desserts, make use of the candy table by decorating it with desserts. But before that, make some innovative table runners and bunting banners that will make it look apt for the party.
DIY Halloween Table Settings for an Indoor Party
When it’s inside your home, options are limitless as you can adjust the light, air-conditioning, and of course the decoration, just the way you wish. For a chilling night, a Halloween themed party should be beside your fireplace.
1. Cool Boo! Themed Table Decoration
Dark and bright colored pumpkins on the table, a handmade ghost string garland over the fireplace and some hovering bats would complement your boo! themed party to a great extent. Don’t forget to keep suitable coasters and napkins with quirky prints. However, instead of using your regular LED lights, you may go for nice ghostly string lights.
2. Classic Halloween Dining Table Decoration
If you are running out of time, just put a black tablecloth and place white coasters and table mats on it. Bring out those last year’s pumpkin decorative pieces and adorn the table with them. It is going to be simple but elegant. You may also tie a bow around the chairs with orange satin clothes.
You can use a similar theme for a Halloween wedding, just add some Mr-Mrs napkins, and a nice centerpiece.
3. Messy Round Coffee Table Decoration
Messier the creepier! Some torn pieces of black and white clothes as napkins, owl decorative pieces, and rusty-looking coasters are good for lending a scary look. If you have enough time for some more crafts, make a small graveyard centerpiece for a gross look.
4. Classy Halloween Dessert Table
Tinges of pink is a fresh relief from the monotonous black and orange combination for a dessert table. Decorate it with candy floss, muffins, sweets, taffy, some on plates and some inside mason jars for a subtle look. Show off your culinary skills and make some delicious desserts for your guests.
Now you know that throwing a party does not have to be a costly affair if you are aware of the ways to curtail the expenses. So, go easy on your pockets by unleashing your creativity and stun your guests with a spooky party. Happy Halloween!
