Halloween Tablescape

“Now it’s been 300 years, right down to the day. Now the witch is back! And there’s hell to pay….”

Just like the Sanderson Sisters (I mean, really, I’m like the 4th sister), I am BACK!

Okay, okay, I wasn’t gone for that long! Life has been crazy around here! But, I am so happy to show you guys this Halloween tablescape I threw together for a small Halloween get together I’m having later this month!

I don’t get really crazy in my Halloween decor, but I absolutely have loved Halloween (and Hocus Pocus) since I was a kid! Who hasn’t?!

Since moving to Florida, I started a new tradition with my work bestie and we are expanding it this year to include husbands! I mean, it’s really nothing crazy! Just matching shirts + Hocus Pocus + Murder Mystery Trivia + wine + trick-or-treat-ers! Can’t beat a fun night like that!

We just built a farmhouse table and are completely overhauling the dining room (on a budget), so yall know that takes time! Bear with me as we only have the table finished! However, since my table is complete, I have been jones-ing to get my creative juices flowing on centerpieces and tablescapes. So I hit up Target dollar spot, as per usual, and got completely inspired by a blanket scarf (hang with me) and the black and white cloth pumpkins!

I decided to go with a black and white tablescape theme to keep it classy and different yet still in theme.

So back to the blanket scarf:
I found this blanket scarf for $7 in the dollar spot bin at Target, and I was inspired! There aren’t many 8 foot table runners that cute that you can get for under $10! I stocked up with as many white and black cloth pumpkins I could find (not many were even left!) and snagged this glitter tree for a centerpiece.

I went home and cut the blanket scarf in half to make it long enough to be my table runner and got busy!

I started by cutting my table in half with the big centerpiece, and then I took the two parts on either side and kind of cut those in half too. Almost as if I was decorating two small tables to get a nice balance.

I have a broken piece of cedar wood that I love dearly. I used the jagged edges to my advantage and stacked them in a mismatched staircase way to add more height to my glitter tree and width to the centerpiece with the tealight candle and pumpkin.

I had bought these hobnail candle holders, cupcake stands, and white and black pumpkins previously from (you guessed it) Target. The black nesting houses are from Hearth and Hand with Target.

Check out my highlights on my Instagram to see a walkthrough of how I put this tablescape together!
