Halloween Centerpieces – Pops of Orange and Black
If there are two colors that never fail, at this time of year then they are black and orange. A combination of the two is absolutely perfect for your Halloween tabletop scenery, even if you don’t want to add more spooky motifs including spiders, cobwebs, and skulls. Orange and black tableware, decor, and centerpieces add the Halloween vibe even when the dining room is still elegant and classy. Of course, you can always give this dining table a much scarier look with custom pieces like a centerpiece that features skulls, a few bloodstained candles, and a few spiders in the mix.
Halloween Centerpieces – Keeping It Stylish
Not everyone who celebrates this party wants Halloween centerpieces that are over the top and filled with bones, skeletons, skulls, and all things too creepy. As we mentioned earlier, it’s easy to find that “Halloween-inspired look” simply by using colors like white, black, and orange for the table. At some point, only white and gold also work well and this look will serve you well beyond Halloween with a few minor tweaks. Soft lighting and a hint of red in the mix also elevates this dining room’s visual appeal and ensures your guests feel like they are entering a Halloween-themed space.
Halloween centerpieces in more styles
If there’s one trend we’ve noticed this season, it’s that skulls and skeletons seem to be more popular than usual as Halloween accent pieces. The exact reason for this seems unclear, but adding them to the Halloween tabletop landscape is a fun option that’s all the rage too. Then there’s the usual lining up of those black skulls on the cake stand to create an easy centerpiece, carved pumpkins with candles, spiders on the credenza behind, and some dark branches and crows in between. There’s a reason this decorating style is so popular this time of year and you’d do well to embrace it once again.
