This Way to Trick or Treating Halloween Tablescape
With Halloween a few weeks away,
I’m at the table with some tricks & treats!
Black and white plates are paired with checks
for a festive foundation and Happy Haunting!
A pumpkin and a wreath of orange berries
was scared up from the aisles of HomeGoods,
one of my favorite haunts, to place in an urn
for an easy centerpiece.
Black mugs at each place setting
are filled with treats of candy eyes,
owls, ghosts and Jack-o’-lanterns~
Attracting the attention of crows
with their shiny foil wrappers~
A four pack of dish towels in a combination
of black, orange, checks and stripes,
are masquerading as napkins at the table.
Octagonal chargers frame square plates
from Mikasa’s Swirl Dinnerware collection.
The stoneware, with its simple, clean lines,
has a combination of
matte and gloss glazes on each piece.
And Swirl flatware by Mikasa combines
and contrasts a mirror and frosted finish.
Skeletal hands seem a little less sinister
holding a felted wool pumpkin ornaments
found at Target.
marry tricks with treats with
chocolate and vanilla flavored bark coating
and a Creepy Sprinkles Lab~
Easy to make for ghosts and goblins!
And a little anatomy and Halloween fun with
Wilton Candy Eyes or Eye(s) of Newt. . .
. . .And Wilton candy bones,
minimal bone setting skills required :)

Very cute Mary! I love the little eyes looking up at you from each cup! The last time I was at Target they didn’t have the Halloween stuff out… Guess where I’m headed tomorrow:@)
I played with the Wilton Candy Eyes this week too! Love the eyes peeking up at you. xo
Such a beautiful and fun Halloween table. Love the creepy hands holding your fun Carmel apples and felt pumpkins. Great black pumpkin too!
Your collection of stuff amazes me. Always you have just the right thing for whatever table you’re doing. Dish towels are often in better patterns/colors than napkins and are very handy substitutes.
I love black and white … with the splashes of orange and that great Trick or Treat Centerpiece —- ready for Halloween!
Love the black pumpkin and the dish clothes!
Good morning, Mary! Love your black, white and orange table settings. 🍂🎃👻👀
What a fun table, Mary! You are certainly in the Halloween spirit with such festive decor and you’ve provided some yummy treats for your guests to adore!! xo
Always love your tablescapes…especially lakeside…and this one does not fail. So adorable!
You are just SO darn creative! Don’t you ever have an off day? LOL Lisa
Way CUTE!! franki
So darn, cute. I mean spooky!
Good morning, Mary, Loved the tablescape, very creative. Love the idea of using dishtowels for napkins.
Hi Mary, This is a great halloween table and without a single halloween themed plate in sight! This pattern is wonderful and so versatile. I must get some of those eyes and stick them on all the goodies in my house, in hopes that I won’t be able to eat something that is “looking” at me. Linda
Great table! Those cups of goodies look very tempting, and I love the skeletal hands. I’ll have to look for those eyeballs, I’m heading to the cake decorating shop this morning.
Loving this tablescape,thank you for sharing!!!! One day would you do a tour of your beautiful home?You are so creative I know it must be amazing,Thanks again!!!!!! Happy Halloween from Georgia!!!!
Hi Mary, I love the skeletal hands holding the cute apples! Thank you for sharing your wonderful Halloween table at the Open House party.
I love it. I like that you don’t make it all “kiddie” or gruesome. This is a classy table for all ages!
No need for trick or treating at this table, you have provided all the treats! That big fat black pumpkin looks adorable on the orange wreath atop your urn~and I love the way you have set the plates at different angles on the octagon chargers. 4 pack dish cloths make great napkins with your black and white checked cloth, and those hands do look less creepy with your felted pumpkins and apple sprinkled treats. I don’t like Halloween gruesome, but I just love Halloween sweet, like this table! Thanks for the eye candy, I’m off to find some chocolate!
Did you find the skeletal hands at Target this year? I have looked everywhere for some but none to be found at Target or anywhere else so far. If you have seen them anywhere please let me know. The table is wonderful and I love the black and white tablecloth from Kohl’s too. Thanks for your help.
Thanks Sandi! No the hands came from Target several years ago, they were sold as votive holders. I’ve seen the servers several places this year but not the holders. If I run across them I’ll let you know :)
Oh Mary, what a very special Halloween Tablescape. Everything is perfect.
Thanks so much for sharing with us.
I have a question regarding your tea towels as napkins. What are the dimensions? I have a set that would be fabulous for Halloween, but I’m wondering how big is too big. Mine are 18″ x 28.” Thanks!
Hi Pattie, My dish towels are 16 x 28, folded to 6 x 14, they hang off the table :)
loving your big black punkin! it looks like you made it, great find! another spooky gooky table galore, i bet the kids in the neighborhood are treated very well by you~
This is so cute, Mary! Love that you used the dish towels.
How clever! Mary, you never cease to amaze ~ all the details!! You know I’m going back up to the top to linger and enjoy. Thank you for sharing all of your fabulous ideas. (Have a wonderful weekend!) xo
You’ve put together a really fun table! I’m loving all the Mikasa Swirl pieces, especially the black! Thanks for the insipiration.
Love the cute little eyes in the mug, Heres LooKing at YoU another winner !!
Have a super weekend!
p.s the pumpkin center piece is so darn scary, I mean Neat !! :)
Thanks for the towel dimensions. I think mine will work. I found eyes at Michael’s today. I think I might use them to scare my husband at breakfast tomorrow…on pancakes. ;-)
Mary, no one does a festive table better than you, my friend. This is so cute — I love it!! I really like your black and white checked tablecloth (it reminds me of my kitchen curtains). :) Your centerpiece is great, and HomeGoods is my favorite haunt, too. :-D I love the way you’ve stacked your plates, and the flatware is lovely. The spooky candy is so cute, and so are the skeleton hands with the burlap pumpkins. Thanks for sharing the Halloween treat recipes; they look like real winners!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, Mary!
Those apples would thrill any child or adult for that matter! They are so attractive. I have fond memories of treat or treating and going to my teachers home where she always had a huge tray of candied apples.
Your table is so festive and fun and super creative as usual.
Mary, your tablescape is so darn fun! Love the decorated apples along with those little felt pumpkins in the skeletal hands! How fun it would be to dine at your table beside the lake!
Mary- you never disappoint! I love everything you do.
Mary, I always look forward to seeing what you have created to share with us and your trick or treat table is darling. Love the pumpkin, the wreath and tablecloth. So perfect for the event.
I love your table setting! So many adorable touches! I have the same black and white table cloth and it’s fun to see it in a different setting!
Sio behind on posts as we had a VERY busy weekend. So glad I didn’t miss this FUN table! You ahve inspired me to do a table. I just haven’t been able to motivate myself lately with so much going on here. You are the QUEEN of staging/merchandising. Love the teatowels.
Love the tablescape, love the black and white checks, so cute with the bright orange and I adore how everyone has their very own cup of treats..so clever..Phyllis
Your treat cups are so fun, I love this idea. Thanks for linking to Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty
Terrific! Just the right amount of “spook” with “spectacular”! All the details are fantastic when put together. Those apples look delish!
Love this tablescape!! The sinister looking hands holding the felt pumpkins are too fabulous! I love all the linens too. I am craving one of those apples too!! Come link up to Centerpiece Wednesday and share this idea with us. http://thestylesisters.blogspot.com/2013/10/centerpiece-wednesday-97.html
Gorgeous, as always! Love all the spooky details. Those cupcake holders are to die for….hmmm…maybe I should choose better words.
You can make spooky and creepy elegant!!! Love the pumpkin message!!!
As always, Mary, your table is fantastic…so festive and pretty. I have the pumpkin from home goods as well but mine is the ivory with black lettering…really enjoying moving it from vignette to vignette.
I love this, it looks great for Halloween without being too spooky. I like that you can use items you might already have like black and white dinner ware. Happy Halloween!
What a beautiful setting on the water. Every detail is just wonderful. I loved seeing it! Love the black dinnerware!
So cute! I love the orange, black and white theme. All the details you added are perfect!
Your table is so cute! Love the place settings and the trick or treat pumpkin!! So creative!

Hi Mary…Just wanted you to know that you have been featured on my blog…again! :-) You have so many fabulous ideas! Thanks so much for sharing at The Scoop!…hugs…Debbie
Perfect Halloween colored table, just the right amount of trick!
That flatware is very pretty. My Dansk is starting to get pitted.
Have a great Sunday! You have been a very busy poster, how do you do it!
This is so cute! I think several of us used black and white checked tablecloths this time – love what you did with yours. Your decorated apples are the most adorable things. What a creative idea!!
Mary, I love all of this table. The pumpkin in the urn as a centerpieces is just great! Love the hands with the aplles in them. the eyes are so fun that I think I have to borrow that idea. love the black and white tablecloth too. You always put together the yummiest little buckets of candy. Joni
Great Halloween table, Mary…I love those bony hands and ravens roosting on the pumpkins!
Have a spooktacular week…
So sweet! Love the apples!

Another adorable table, Mary. The centerpiece is a clever way to set the stage of this table with all the treats. Of course, the black and white theme with a touch of Halloween orange makes me smile. The selection of dish towels are the perfect addition. I find myself buying dish towels more and more for use as napkins.
So cute- your talent is always amazing. Love the apples and little pumpkins. Those cups full of candy look too good! I bought some dishtowels that I thought about using for napkins- this gives me ideas!
So lovely…your cupcake holders are wonderful! Great attention to detail..as always!
Oh how adorable and clever. I loved everything about this table. What a clever way to use a pumpkin to give “directions” I just loved it!
Cute as ever, Mary! I picked up packages of Halloween kitchen towels at HG recently to use as napkins. It’s a fun touch, and they make great napkins. I missed those cute felted pumpkins at Target. Did you find them this year? If so, what section? I’ll make a Target run tomorrow. ;-)
