Hey there! As you’ve heard me mention, a time or two recently, I have had a good bit of fun decorating for Halloween! This is the first year ever that I have done this much for Halloween, and it’s been entertaining! I decided to give our prim-and-proper formal dining room a little spooky makeover!
Sticking with the neutral theme we have gone with this year, I wrapped my farmhouse canvas print with a black and white polka dot wrapping paper. This made a difference right away, and it was so simple! From there, I draped faux spider webs across it and dangled a glittery spider near the center. I rearranged my buffet with the decor and allowed it to accommodate very little clutter and added more faux webbing and spiders.
Next is where I had a little bit of fun 🙂 Adding some pops of orange into the bunch, I created my Halloween centerpiece! I bought these beautiful paper fans from Target for only $5! They were the focus of my design. I added a couple of orange pumpkins, mini white pumpkins, faux webbing, acorn squash, vintage books and mercury glass into the design.
For me, I start with the center of my table. This is where I added the most height, since this is what the eye automatically draws to. I stacked a couple of vintage books and placed a mercury glass taper candle in the center. I worked around that and created my centerpiece from there. I usually mirror one side to the other. Not using the exact same things, but keeping it similar so the design doesn’t look awkward. I added a short little piece of black and white buffalo check ribbon to my acorn squash. Just that little thing made them fit right in!
What do you think? Spooky chic! I love the fact that I was able to created this centerpiece using items I already had (besides the paper fans!). Incorporate items you already have, so you don’t have to feel guilty for buying new items or additional cost!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope your day is wonderful.
