Designer Diann Valentine sent us a couple of ideas, which really got us thinking and looking for even more ideas! 🙂

“Whether you are hosting a dinner party or a casual gathering for Halloween, creating a fun and creative tablescape should be on the top of your list. Pick up some ceramic pumpkins from any local home décor store or try these available at Pottery Barn. Spray paint them all black and use large clear crystals to add eyes to them after the paint dries. Add mercury glasss candle holders and vases in varying sizes and shapes down the center of the table. Layer in some long strands of pearls draped over and round the pumpkins and mercury glass containers. Add lots of candles for sparks of light and your done. This fabulous tablescape will be a departure from the traditional Halloween but adds some festive sophisticated glamour to your table.”

“To add to your glamorous tablescape, take mini white pumpkins and dip them in a small quart of silver metallic paint. Suspend them over newspaper until they dry then attach your guests name and riddle to each stem. I am a big fan of place cards at any dinner party because I believe that great parties don’t happen by accident and it’s critical that guests are coached into having a great time. I like to give place cards a dual purpose by directing where your guests will sit as well as igniting interesting conversations at your table. Consider adding a clever humorous riddle to each place card and then ask your guests to share before your first course is served. Here is one to get you started: “Why did the skeleton go to the party alone? He didn’t have any body to go with him”!
