If you want to celebrate Halloween in style with a Spooktacular dinner for your friends and family, then it’s time to start planning the most extravagant party of the year. Halloween is now the third most popular festival in the UK, behind Christmas and Easter, but no other seasonal gathering allows you to push the boundaries to such extremes. With this is mind, Lettice have conjured up seven fantasies, that provide decorative scope while on a budget. Transform your space, transcend the realm of the living, and throw a party people will remember.
The tasteful use of skulls on the table, can give an edgy gothic feel. Alternatively hand-painted colourful sugar skulls can be used to decorate, with bright flowers for a Halloween festival. Add a dark velvet runner, gold skulls and an abundance of drip candles and you have a cheap but effective table scape, perfect to add some gothic romance to your evening.
Pumpkins now come in such bountiful colours, shapes and sizes which are perfect to mix and match down the centre of your table. Why not break tradition and surprise your guests with an all-white table, using the ever-popular petite white pumpkins to decorate. Get creative with carving spooky spine-chilling shapes, add tea lights and your dining room will be glowing with eerie orange light.
Disguise you dinning room by draping cobweb’s everywhere, not only is this a cheap way to create a creepy atmosphere, but its also easy and effective. Cobweb everything from chandeliers and lights, to doorways and walls. Add little black glitter spiders for extra glam.
Neon lights can not only look impressive, but are a penny saving way to impress your guests. Go for one colour like red to light the table and the room. Go one step further and use UV lights to create your very own glow party.
Use a black and white striped or checked tablecloth, with bright red or pink flowers to accomplish a modern and chic statement this Halloween.
Recycle your dying bouquet of flowers, or purchase a large bunch of red and white roses and keep them upside down in you airing cupboard. Wait for the flowers to dry out and scatter on the table. Place a few in small glass vases as a deadly dramatic centrepiece.
Dark Purple Hydrangeas
As hydrangeas are in season, a dark purple display would make for the ideal Halloween adornment. Pair the flowers with black candelabra’s and matte black plates and napkins for a sophisticated feel.
