Skulls & Bones Tablescape

I am embracing neutrals with a pop of color this Halloween. As you may recall from previous posts, I am often inspired by fabric and this year was no different. This MODA Haunted Gala Halloween fabric was the inspiration for this year’s spooky table for two.
I purchased the skull plates during a summer outing with a posse of neighborhood women that you can read about here.
They pretty much set the tone for the table, so for a centerpiece, I used skull vase filler from Pottery Barn.
Placemats and “Spice Route” dinner plates from Pier One form a nice basis for tasty goodies.
For a pop of color I used deep red wine glasses from Crate and Barrel, hanging a little skeleton off of each one.
The ravens are from Decor Steals (one of my favorite purchases) and are put to use throughout the house all year long. They look perfect here, I think.
I bought the little skeleton hand cupcake toppers to grace cupcakes for the season, but then never got around to making them (sheesh!) so used them on top of the napkins.
The flatware is from Pottery Barn and I let it go for a number of months without polishing to provide a decrepit look for the table (that’s’ my story and I’m sticking to it!).

Wow I love this combination! The chocolate brown charger with the polka dot plates look so good together and I love the skull plate on top!
The fabric is the perfect backdrop! I like the skull stack in the vase and the hand bone on the napkins!

Incredible creativity in that one! Great idea to use red and black and white for such a great effect. Now for food!

Fabric is such a wonderful source of inspiration, and yours is terrific for a spooky table. I can't believe you found such cool things to go right with it. Good work!

Outstanding Halloween table setting! Terrific centerpiece with the skulls in the vase. The ravens fit in so well and love the "decrepit" flatware. My favourite part of the table though are the place settings and the colours of charger/plates you chose to use along with the skull plates. In addition, I saw the "slug slime" square on the fabric you used for a tablecloth and thought it REALLY IS perfect for your tablescape! Going back to pin!

What a great tablescape! I love all of the pretty little details, or should I say "creepy little details" ! I have been lusting after that flatware myself, I may have to indulge or ask for it as a Christmas gift! I am pinning this to keep in mind for Halloween next year!
