This Halloween look is low on spook factor, but high on seasonal offerings. No Halloween is complete without pumpkins, so we were delighted that our Coral Wild Child tablecloth and Coral Modernist napkins were a perfect match for the jack o’lanterns and gourds that are synonymous with this holiday.
At Setting Pretty, we often try to dress our tables without freshly cut flowers. The thought of a hearty pumpkin soup or pumpkin ravioli made with the decorations from the dinner table the night before leaves us and our bank accounts feeling happy.
We punctuated the orange hues dominating the table with pumpkins we spray painted gold. The addition of twigs for texture and colour brings to mind the bonfires of the season, while the chunky candleholders wrapped in twigs could not have been a better match.
Since no Halloween is complete without candy, we topped things off with dishes of moorish Reese’s Pieces in the colours of our table – brown and orange.
Extra decorating tips:
- Light up your table with carved pumpkins or tall candelabras and black candles
- Pin a personalised placecard to your pumpkin
The star course of Halloween dinner must be dessert. This year, homemade ghost cake, inspired by the amazing Martha Stewart, and ghost shaped meringues were the highlights.
Our dining tables are not the only thing we like decorating for holidays. Picking up on the theme of spray painted pumpkins to decorate the outside of her London home, Setting Pretty Co-Founder Julie made spooky black bats to add drama and variety to carved pumpkins.
