An haute Hallows Eve

A spooky table

Less is more when setting a frightilicious scene for guests. Just pick a theme (here, it’s ravens) and avoid the usual (namely orange!). Chartreuse velvet fabric inspired the colour palette, while the outdoors was tied in with decorative elements like ornamental grasses and black feathers.

Table setting

Don’t hesitate to embellish the place settings – it’s Halloween, after all – but just stick with the colour palette and keep it simple. Here, a ribbon of textured black raffia makes an effortless napkin ring.

Jarred candy

Silver accents provide just the right amount of glam. The chargers, which are used with the dinner plates, double as trays to hold the jars of candy.

Seasonal arrangement

Create a beautiful dried seasonal arrangement that you can use anywhere. A wooden bowl and trug hold a selection of gourds, moss balls and dried white button mums. Vintage leather-bound books set atop a black cobweb (which pops against a mauve swath of fabric) promise to hold a magic spell or two within!

Eerie cupcakes

Cupcakes (dark chocolate, of course) are iced in a witchy green and topped with towering purple candles.

Pumpkin decorations

Real gourds (artificial will work too) coated with black paint pop against the chartreuse tablecloth. Spanish moss (available at craft stores) scattered about is a refreshing organic touch compared to the season’s traditional hay.

Skeleton wreath

Commercial Halloween decorations are more stylish when used sparingly. A skeleton makes an upscale spooky impression against a natural raffia wreath. A few simple flourishes – black and amethyst ribbons, and ravens – offer guests a hint of what they’ll experience.

Party favours

Make your own favours – homemade is always original! In a nod to the fall season, we filled fibre pots with mini pine cones, but you could use something more festive like black jelly beans. Insert an enchanting black feather and hold it upright with a clothespin painted green.

Halloween treats

A Halloween spread is not complete without a candy buffet. A collection of grown-up candy in shades from the colour palette is displayed in clear Mason jars: black licorice and jelly beans, purple lollipops, and green chocolate mint balls, which mimic eyeballs.
