Halloween Tablescapes

I had a few of my best girlfriends over for a small Halloween-themed dinner a few nights ago.

I gave my kitchen table away to a friend a few months back, so I created a makeshift eating area by decorating my poker table with all of our necessities and decided that since we always end up chatting around my coffee table in my living room, we'd eat in there anyway. Turned out to be one of my favorite setups.

I went to Party City and bought mesh to lay across the table, giving it a "spooky" old feel. You can also use black or grey cheesecloth.

Festive Halloween Place Cards

I'm throwing a dinner party for my best girlfriends this week and in the true tradition of Halloween, I'm making it spooky and fun! These festive place cards are adorable, easy to make and can also be taken home by your guests at the end of the night.

You will need:

- One mini pumpkin for each guest
- Glitter spray paint
- Twine
- Construction paper (for tags)
- Sharpie
- Green paint and brush

Start by spray painting your pumpkins and letting each dry, making sure the entire pumpkin in coated. Let dry.

After about 15 minutes, paint the stems green.

Cut construction paper (I chose green) into name tags and string twine through the top, leaving enough twine to tie around the pumpkin's stem.

Write each guests name on a tag and affix to their pumpkin.

Happy Halloween!
