How to style a Halloween dinner party
Don’t fancy the face paint this year? Invite the gang over for a Halloween themed dinner party instead. As much as we love a food theme – hello, ghost-shaped everything - this one’s definitely all about the decoration. Here are three ways to style your table settings, from the subtle to the seriously spooky.
This versatile idea will take your table from harvest to Halloween. Equal parts Scandi and scary, it pairs textured grey ceramics with natural wood and rich metallic accents – see our statement copper candlestick for some serious drama. The best bit? Every piece has longevity far beyond October. Psst - pumpkins get a free pass here, but opt for white or green over orange and definitely make them mini.
Gothic gets a graphic update. Take your cue from the high drama of art deco with an unashamedly luxe black and gold scheme – just keep lines clean and shapes structural to keep it all feeling contemporary. These chalky black dinner plates are a real showstopper – dress them up with marble accents and lustre finishes by night, and offset with a crisp white tablecloth for everyday living.
Feeling the full-on Dracula look? Embrace it. Look out for coloured marble, baroque details and maybe even our quirky (but seriously cool) claw candlestick. Pretty it all up with textured, smokey glass – it’s very Victoriana and will prevent the whole thing feeling too heavy. Dining by candlelight is an absolute must, as is a round of ghost stories and a horror classic to watch after dinner.
