Halloween Decor can prove to be a little TRICKY! But the satisfaction of a well decorated table can be such a TREAT!

What makes it even better is that it doesn’t have to burn a hole in MUMMY’S pockets. With my everyday dishes, combined with Target’s crazy-affordable Halloween decor, I was able to create a Spook-tacular Setting.

If you’ve seen my last tablescape, you probably recognize the charger, plates , and napkins.  If I had all the money and storage in the world, I would be that person with new plates, napkins, and flatware for every occasion. But I am not! Just a stay at home momma who needs to do a better job of budgeting. Whomp! Whomp! Because of that, I am all about repurposing and keeping the cost low, especially, when it comes to decorating for the holidays.

Target has some incredible Halloween goodies! These purple skulls were my inspiration for the entire table!   

To decorate the runner, I used black cheese cloth ($4.00) , black and gold pumpkins (which range from $3.00-$9.00), glitter birch trees ( $5.00), purple floral stems from Hobby Lobby ($2.99 each- but you can get them 40% off ), black candlesticks,  and then sprinkled in a few critters.

 

What I love is that you can be as creative or as wild as you want when it comes to the placement of the creepy crawlers!

 

I have  always wanted gold cutlery, but cannot justify buying 12 settings worth… at least not now! So in the mean time, I used PLASTIC!  Party City has some of the best  plastic cutlery. They look just like the real thing! THESE are the ones I purchased.

And there you have it! An un-BOO-lievably gorgeous tablescape just in time to HAUNT your party guests!

Enjoy & Drink up Witches!
