Simple Halloween Table

When I lived in Ohio for a few years, Halloween wasn’t celebrated on October 31!

Each town chose a night (usually a weekend) for the festivities.

Well that’s not how we roll in Jersey so I’ll be handing out candy (and probably shoveling more than a few pieces into my mouth) on the 31st.

Although my girls are past their trick or treating years, I wanted to set a fun table and this one couldn’t be easier.

(See my past Halloween ideas here)

My secret table runner weapon is wrapping paper! This one is actually a piece of wallpaper and when dinner is over, into the trash it goes.

Secret weapon number two … dish towels for napkins (these cute black cats are from HomeGoods).

Black and orange Halloween centerpiece - mini pumpkins and rats!

The guest of honor needs eight forks.

When my girls were little, I used to tell them that I hated bringing Helga (she talks and sounds exactly like the Wicked Witch of the West!) out every year because Daddy was in love with her!

I don’t blame the guy – who could resist her.

Here’s hoping that your plastic pumpkin is filled to the brim with full size candy!

  1. Cute and easy to clean up! I love decorating for Halloween. Fun, fun, fun, and used to have an annual “Witch Conference” with 50 ladies here all dressed for the party. We are on a Christmas Tour of Homes this year so I didn’t bring all the spooky things out since I’m trying to clean and decorate for the Dec. 3rd tour. Love looking at what you have done though so it keeps me in the spirit of the season. Hee-Hee-Hee the ole witch in S.C.

  2. I I don’t like your big spider but the little lady in your chair sure is cute,haha. Happy Halloween, i’ll tell you what i use to tell my boys, if you eat too much candy you’ll have a bellyache.

  3. Love this so cute. And Helga is awesome. I live in Ohio and my town does celebrate Halloween on october 31st . which I love, but growing up I lived in another town and we always did Halloween on the last Thursday of the month. which I always thought was weird. Thanks for sharing.
