If there’s ever a time that I indulge my imagination, it’s Halloween. Don’t be afraid to fill your table with nightmarish things that decorate in a palette that’s gone to the dark side. Just be sure your decor is more macabre than “meh”!

What you will need:

Foam Skull from AMAZON

Faux greenery,succulents, berries & flowers

I started with making the easy napkin rings!  Just use a glue dot to place your plastic spider on and you’re done!

Next , cut a medium size hole in the top of your foam skull…

Pick out your flowers and do a rial run to see which stems you want to paint black!

Finish off your Halloween look with black candles, spider web runner..

I spray painted some succulents black as well and put into skull mini planters from amazon!

The bird’s eyes light up but didn’t work in the pictures but look great on the table!

 

I also found these awesome Halloween wine labels and wine corks on Amazon! 

Planning a Halloween party can be fn and doesn’t have to be a lot of work! But, don’t just put all your energy into the scary cocktails and yummy treats! Go teh extra mile and wowo your guests with a killer table display—and that doesn’t necessarily mean spending more money. You can DIY yourself this table yourself, on the cheap (and on the fly!) 🙂
