Monster Mash Halloween Dinner Tablescape
The invitations went out and so many little creatures accepted. Be prepared for lots of pictures from this yearly event.
As I was packing up my Playful Witches Tablescape I came across these little critters and decided to do one more Halloween table. This time I chose to stick with the traditional orange/black color palette. Typically, the little creatures here take on a more sinister role this time of year, but I chose to be more playful and dress them up a little. These little creatures would love for you to have a seat at their Monster Mash Halloween Tablescape. Some of them even dressed in their finest for the occasion.
My Monster Mash Halloween Dinner Tablescape starts with a white polyester tablecloth overlaid with the same black dotted fabric I used for Miss Maggie’s Dark and Moody Table.
The stack starts with a black acrylic charger followed by a white square dinner plate plus an orange one. I also added a white salad plate and these black and white raven appetizer plates that I almost forgot I had.I placed a white napkin between the white and orange plates.
No need for fancy flatware, this modest black handled cutlery was perfect.
With so much going on in the center of the table I also kept the drinkware simple. One black goblet and one clear.
Mr. Gargoyle doesn’t look too pleased to be here and was probably coerced to attend.
Spiderman refused to dress up for the occasion.
For the skull triplets, I added googly eyes to give them more personality. They’re also wearing matching bows that I got from the dollar store. This one down front wanted to make sure she was in the picture. Pat, the rat is wearing an orange and white bowtie. For these, I used mini scrunchies and barrettes. I snapped the back off and hot glued the bow to the scrunchy.
Then there’s this character in the middle of the picture who’s had way too much swamp juice and plopped into the first spot he could find. The spider web bowl he’s lounging in is also a dollar store find.
I also found these little monsters at the dollar store. They decided to sit at each place setting to make sure none of their shady friends ran off with the silverware.
Then there’s this cast of characters hanging out in a tree.
This little guy is keeping it classy with a white bow-tie.
Whatever Mr. Rat is telling Jack O Lantern, he’s not buying it.
Ravens were first in line when the bowties were handed out.
A few snakes also slithered in.
Someone put on way too much highlighter, but his jaunty little party hat is cute.
Every once in a while, you need a helping hand.
I hope you enjoyed this table as much as I did putting it together and I’m taking this cast of characters to the following parties this week.
