Halloween Table Decor Ideas

1. Halloween Tablecloths

A tablecloth should always be the base of your display. If you like to be a little more creative, you can buy a plain black or orange cloth and decorate it with whatever you want to put on the table.

You can also buy Halloween-themed tablecloths which are already decorated with witches, pumpkins, skulls, and other Halloween icons. It’s a great and easy way to transform your table instantly.

2. Halloween Tiered Tray Decor

If you have a tiered tray, you can decorate it with Halloween props such as gnomes, miniature pumpkins, and black, white, and orange beaded garlands.

If you don’t have a tiered tray, buy one anyway. You can re-use it for every Holiday or celebration such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, or as a seasonal centerpiece for fall, winter, summer, and spring!

3. A Witches Hat

A Witches hat is very popular as a Halloween centerpiece, and it’s not hard to imagine why! You can buy a cheap witches hat from a dollar store and decorate it with fall leaves, hairy spiders, cute little bats, or any other Halloween-themed items.

If you love to bake,  you can make a big Halloween witch hat cake and use that as a centerpiece on your table.

4. Pumpkin

Of course, there’s no Halloween decor without a beautifully carved pumpkin.

But there are other things you can do with a pumpkin aside from carving it. You could:

  • Decorate fall leaves around the base of the pumpkin
  • Use the pumpkin as a vase for a big display of flowers
  • Spray paint the pumpkin purple or black and create a Halloween-themed pumpkin. Decorate with spider webs and little spiders.

Get creative with some candles to create the perfect atmosphere with your Halloween table decorations. The Gothic theme works best for Halloween, so stick to black candlestick holders and long, thin candlesticks.

You can use this as a centerpiece, and place smaller candles all around the table. Turn the lights off to create the spooky atmosphere you want at a Halloween party.

Remember to be careful about where you place any real candles, especially if they’re near flammable material or could easily be knocked over.

Or consider buying flame-less Halloween Candles!
