Recently, my friend, Ariel from PMQ for two asked if I wanted to join a Halloween tablescape and I jumped at the idea! I love decorating for fall, but since we moved to the middle of nowhere and don’t have trick or treaters, we don’t decorate for Halloween anymore. My kids are always thrilled when I set the table fancy, but a Halloween tablescape would really delight them. It’s not a secret that I love color. But orange is generally not one of those colors. So, I tried really hard to stick with blacks, whites and grays. It looked unfinished though, so color was added!

I found spiderweb placemats at my local grocery store (Wegman’s if you’re curious) and went from there. My table has a walnut top, so I layered it with a white tablecloth to make the placemats show up. I used my normal white dishes and bamboo silverware that kind of looks like bones with a little imagination.
Then I added in a runner to add more pattern. I had a vision of skeleton cameo silhouettes. I made the runner with heat transfer vinyl that was very kindly provided by Craftables and deserves it’s own post entirely. Spoiler alert, I LOVE this htv!! Tutorial here.
The cut files are from the Silhouette store and I love them so much. My family is represented here (besides the dog.) Wait, is that weird? I don’t think my family will find it weird…
I used the heat transfer vinyl on some glasses as well. Probably not a project for the faint of heart, but I’ll do a full post on that too. The glasses aren’t perfect, but they did turn out super cool.
Let’s move on to pretty pictures!
