Skull and Fall Tablescape

Oct 26, 2021 | Halloween, Maggie Lane Designs, Tablescapes

Happy Wednesday everyone!!  Can you believe Halloween is this weekend???  I had a totally different post written for today on Pet Psychics but will save that for next week because I just had to get my Skull and Fall Tablescape out!  With less than a week away from Halloween, this skull table is definitely something you will want to create.  And, if you can’t this year, save this post for next year.  The fun part is making a list of what you need and scouting out all the stores for your table.  Home Goods has a clearance isle and an online store now and you never know what you will find.
A friend of mine recently told me that her family enjoys my “tablescape posts” so this is for them!  I was thinking of them when I put this post together.  Enjoy!

I have to admit that I never liked the skull home decor, dishes, etc until this year.  The more I looked at them, the more I wanted to try the look.  I know, I know.  Some skull patterns are taken to the next level.  I’m more of a sparkle, glitter, fancy, flowery skull person :-). That is why I fell in love with these towels from Home Goods.  They were the jumping off point for this table.  I already had these DISHES and these DISHES from Thyme & Table at home that I purchased from Walmart but hesitated because they are an animal and geometric pattern.  Then I figured why not?  We don’t have to always stay traditional with holiday decor.  Have fun with mixing shapes, patterns, and colors plus they are neutral colors.  I also mixed up the patterns on the table as well by incorporating the bolder geometric black and cream design.

How about this fun tablecloth??  I’ll let you in on a little secret….it is actually a blanket that I found at Home Goods.  You don’t have to stay with a true tablecloth.  Change it up by using a blanket or a piece of material cut to fit your table.  JoAnn Fabrics and Hobby Lobby has some beautiful patterns out now and when they are running a sale, it’s even better.

This table has both silver and gold on it.  Don’t be afraid to mix metals on your table.  We mix metals in jewelry, clothing, and home decor so why not mix them in with your tablescape!  Or make silver your main focal point and accent with gold.  Just an idea!  Another idea that I had was to incorporate a fuchsia color in with this tablescape picking up on that color in the blanket.  I almost picked up fuchsia velvet skulls but decided I would save that for next year.  Like I said, you don’t always have to stay with the traditional holiday decor.

With towels in hand, I walked around Home Goods and found these adorable roped candle sticks the exact color of the flowers in the towels, picked up the tablecloth because I knew it would pull all the colors of the table together, and scooped up these adorable skull dessert/appetizer dishes.  How fun are they?  I already had the candle sticks, dishes, wine glasses, and silverware at home and all I needed was placemats.  I could have used gold chargers but wanted black and gold.  Low and behold, I found them.  They were perfect with gold threads to pick up on the gold in the table, black to pick up on all the black on the table plus they added texture.  Texture is important when putting a table together as it gives it depth and dimension.

I wasn’t done there!  I wanted two different centerpieces for two different looks.  One being a soft fun look with this adorable stuffed “BOO” gnome and cloth pumpkins (that I bought a few years ago) all from Home Goods and another with candle sticks.  I used a wooden cake stand to give one pumpkin height on the table and placed candles in between the pumpkins and the gnome.  What I want to do next year is find skulls that will compliment the table, combine real flowers and add candles to create a traditional sparkly centerpiece.  This is what I mean about finding items for your table.  Make a list or a mental note and when you see something that works, grab it.  You will be glad you did.  Who knows, I might just have to look for skull dishes :-).

This table would also look amazing with a big bouquet of flowers whether real or fake.  Check out my post here to see what I mean.  I created this arrangement with silk flowers after finding a pumpkin pin and vase at a garage sale and came up with using it in the arrangement.
