Spooky Chic Tabletop for Halloween

I told you Friday that Halloween 2009 was about style. Home Sense did a table with skull and crossbone motifs that feel glitzy versus ghoulish. In fact, some of the items of the table, like the mirrored tray, could be used for New Year’s day. And to get this look will not make a huge hole on your budget.

Silver accessories are what bring style to this buffet table. It is time to bring back the inexpensive black wine glasses that were popular last decade. The damask and spider web print serverware is awesome and affordable.

    I’m really loving all these Halloween ideas you’re posting up, thanks Kim! I’m hosting my first Halloween party this year for my 25th birthday and I’m getting a lot of great inspiration from your site =)

      Harvard Housewife: The boards from Hostess with the Mostess are awesome. I recognized her style.
