When it comes to Halloween dé;cor, we’ll be the first to admit that there’s a fine line between tastefully terrifying…and terrifyingly tacky. Whether you’re hosting an elaborate Halloween party or just want to decorate for the season, the pressure’s on to make your house haunted without all the cheap thrills and gore. So, where’s the best starting point? Crafting a few DIY Halloween centerpieces. Even your dining room or kitchen table can use some festive flair come October, all made possible by things like flower-infused skulls and eerie candle arrangements. Keep things cool for all your party guys and ghouls with black-and-white color schemes, witch-tastic cauldrons, and labeled Halloween appetizers—because there’s no topping a food centerpiece. Speaking of, you can even put your holiday candy buckets to good use as vasespersonalized toys, or make the sweet treats themselves the focal point while stashed in a glass jar. Not feeling the jeepers-creepers Halloween vibe this year? Never fear—you can still dress up your space in style with fall flowers, ethereal branches, and simple table runners. There’s also a million and one ways to convert pumpkins, real or faux, into table-worthy decorations, be it pumpkin succulents or painted statement pieces. Whichever route you choose, these Halloween table decorations will look wickedly wonderful.
