{Non-traditional} Halloween Tablescape

on September 30, 2016
Hello, and welcome to my non-traditional Halloween tablescape! I’m so excited to share my less than traditional Halloween table setting with you and hope you’ll find oodles of Halloween decorating ideas during your visit. 

Many thanks to Chloe of Celebrate & Decorate for hostessing this lovely tablescape hop. She’s gathered together 27 tablescapes that are sure to give you Autumn ideas and inspiration. Be sure to check out the remainder of the tablescapes at the bottom! 
If you’re coming over from one of the other fantastic blogs in this hop, it’s so great to meet you! My small family of seven (ha!) moved into this house about nine years ago. The first few years we spent most of our time keeping everyone alive – five is a fair number of kids. After being relatively successful with that, we decided to tackle a few DIY projects. Since then, little by little, we’ve been making this home truly our own! I hope you’ll stay and look around. You might enjoy a few details about our home, or if you fancy, please check out the myriad of projects in the project library.    
For now, though, let’s get ready to dine with spooky, yet untraditional style! Be careful, though, to watch out for the spooky creatures that may be creeping around on the table. Shh.. Let’s tread carefully lest we wake them from their naps! 
A near-black Dahlia sets the mood. There is such a wildness to Halloween that it is often necessary to have a centerpiece the same. I’ll be sharing the details on this fun DIY centerpiece next week! 

This is entirely a casual setting which leaves plenty of room for non-ceramic plates. I picked these up in the Halloween section of Target. 
It’s easy enough to add whatever color you’d like to your Halloween decor. There is no rule that says Halloween can only be dressed in orange and black. 
Thirsty? I’ve prepared a brew cocktail for you! 
Boo! It’s pretty difficult to hide when mercury glass is around! 
Thanks so much for stopping by and I do hope you’ll do so again! Be sure to visit the other tablescapes on the hop!

    Kim, I bet you have a wicked sense of humor! What a way to end the Autumn Tablescape blog hop. Very creative Halloween table. I never would have thought of using your spooky things on a table, but it really works. Happy to be sharing the Autumn Tablescape Blog Hop with you.

    Kim I am loving your halloween table! That is a rockin good time for a spooky event. I am guessing your kids are loving the critters on the table and having fun with those. At least if my kids were young and saw this? They'd be having a ball.

    Beautiful table!

    Oh Kim, before I begin my raves about your table, I have to say THANK YOU for doing a Halloween table! I was feeling very embarrassed and conspicuous for being the only one all week that did Halloween! All week there have been so many amazing, sophisticated, magazine worthy tables and right in the middle I throw in a crazy, kookie, silly witch post…and here I am at the very end of the hop and you save me from my loneliness! Your beautiful wood table looks fabulous covered with eerie spiders and snakes, potions and scary plates! I love the way you've woven the creepy netting down the center and under the plates, the candelabras, and the eyeballs in the goblets! Pure Halloween fun, I know your kids would gobble up anything if they got to sit there! Your centerpiece is frighteningly fabulous! Thanks for a great way to end the hop!

    Kim, what an awesome Halloween table. I love all of the drama and the detail. Your table is over the top with fun and creativity. Your photo of your entire table really shows all of the eeriness (and hard work) to put together such an impressive and spooky table that both adults and children alike will absolutely adore!

    What scary fun! I'm lovin' all your haunted details from the ghostly netting, ravens, spider plates and snakes! Your Halloween centerpiece is spooktacular down to the last detail and dahlia šŸ™‚

    So fun to see a Halloween tablescape and this one is terrific with lots of inspiring ideas! Really like the "netting" along your table runner and the candelabras speak of spooky nights. The shape of the plates and dramatic potion bottles are also wonderful accents. I think the length of your table adds to the Halloween look of your tablescape design. PS – It was great to learn that you are a former BC girl and still love the Vancouver Canucks – our team too though after last year, I'm trying not to jump off the bandwagon šŸ™‚

    Dahlias are my favourite, so I actually "Ooooh"ed out loud when I saw that black one! Your table is the perfect blend of spooky and elegant.
