Creating a Halloween Tablescape

Thursday, October 13th, 2016

Halloween Deco

Your jack-o-lanterns are lit, cobwebs are placed strategically, and you have stockpiled enough candy to last you through next Halloween. Before guests arrive, look to your accent tables or dining room table and add some flair with a Halloween tablescape. Here are some loose guidelines to follow no matter your style.

Color Scheme

Orange and black are classic Halloween colors, but white and neutral beige tones are equally decorative on pumpkins, candles, ribbon and baskets. Breaking up bright orange and dark black with these natural alternatives will make your decorative items, pumpkins and bats, for example, make an even more impressive statement.

Fall Fill-Ins

If your centerpiece is almost perfect, but isn’t achieving the full look you were hoping for, use fall home accents to fill in the empty spaces. An autumn leaf garland is the perfect solution, as it will complement your color scheme and add a lively touch to the table. Also, you can never have too many pumpkins, so use them to fill in extra space or scatter on tabletop pedestals among your skulls, bones and witches.

Simplicity Saves Time

Maybe you are opting to go simple this year with a tablescape, or need one for dinner tomorrow. No worries – think simple! A large vase in the center of the table is an attention-grabber, especially when filled with seasonal flowers and plants. Add a few candles – bonus points if they are orange, black, and seasonally scented! – and scatter some leaves (found outside) along the length of the table. Decorative placemats will pull the look together and give you a beautiful table in no time!

When in Doubt, DIY

For a more personal touch, turn to DIY projects for your Halloween centerpieces. From bats to glittery Halloween pumpkins, the tables in your home will be decked out in ghoulish style in time for the 31st. To get started, check out some of our favorite Halloween DIY projects.

Fall Mantel Decorating: Colorful Chalkboards, Prints and Wreaths

Thursday, September 22nd, 2016

Fall is officially here, which means it’s time to pull out all the stops when it comes to autumn decorating. Your front door and dining table may be ready for ringing in the new season, but we can’t forget about the fireplace mantel, a focal point (or points) for many homes. Here are some ways to adorn your mantel in the rich colors and decor of fall.

Chalkboards, Prints and Wreaths

The chalkboard is an underrated home accent. Place one in a rustic frame and you can decorate for any season or occasion with white chalk or colorful chalk. On this mantel, the chalkboard is an alluring focal point, bringing our eyes in to focus on the detailed candlesticks, pumpkins and fall flowers.

A fall print also draws the eye to a mantel, and creates a seasonal look without a lot of fuss. This space is accented by pumpkins and a leafy garland, which accentuates the autumn look without being overdone.

Wreaths are always our go-to home accent for any season, and is best if complemented by candles and a matching garland. The grapevine pumpkins and accessories shown on this mantel maintain an autumn look while blending in with the stonework as to not take away from the beautiful wreath.

Color (or No Color)

These warm tones are not too bright yet not too dull, and offer a warm, cozy feeling that is perfect for surrounding a fireplace. With the exception of the seasonal banner and pumpkins, this is a look that could be carried all year and easily swapped out for the changing seasons.

This aqua blue is a great complement to the muted oranges and yellows in this display, and the varying textures and surfaces – of the chalkboard frame, pottery bowl, ceramic planter – adds an extra touch of natural appeal that is quite becoming of the season.

Sometimes the brightest colors do the best job at creating a whimsical fall look, even if the objects are simple. Bright orange and red leaves stand out with the bright orange pumpkin against a pale eggshell blue wall and white home accents on this mantel, leaving no room for doubt that autumn is upon us.
