With the nights getting colder and shadows getting longer, there’s a touch of magic in the air signaling that Halloween is upon us. And what better way to revel in this eerie night than by throwing a dinner so enchanting, that it will be talked about long after Halloween is over and seasons change. Let’s transform your dining setup into a haunted table fit for the season. With PIPE DECOR® at your side, let’s dive deep into the realm of the supernatural and set a table that’s as hauntingly beautiful as the tales told around it.
So ready your tools because we’re about to get spooky. Here are 5 ways to spookify your dinner table.
Light up your dinner with a ghostly and eerie candle holder. Craft a strikingly industrial yet refined candle holder with a few pipes and fittings and you’ve got yourself a great centerpiece that can be used throughout all seasons, not just Halloween. With the black steel pipes holding white tapered candles and the flames casting dancing shadows, your dining table just got a bit spookier.
At the heart of every dining table setting is a centerpiece that completes the ambiance. Create a simple display arch with a few pipes and fittings that can serve as a great centerpiece for Halloween and all the seasons that come after with a few simple tweaks. You can wrap faux spider webs and hang mini jack-o-lanterns for Halloween, and change it up with some Christmas wreaths and trinkets for the Yuletide season. We’ve written a guide on how to build one if you’d like to read about it here.
Set up a tablescape that gives your dining table creepy vibes and tells tales of old haunted mansions. Faux cobwebs can do the job easily - drape it over pipe structures, add a raven perching on top of one, and perhaps add a few old books or scrolls to accompany them. Use pipes as elements of elevation to give you different heights for your dishes and decorations, adding depth to your layout.
It might be the scariest night of the year, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t warmly greet your guests at the table. A simple addition that blends well with the spirit of the season is DIY placeholders for your guests made with pipes adorned with Halloween trinkets. Craft individual pipe name holders, perhaps twisted to look like aged gates, with name tags written in calligraphy. For an added touch, you can also place a mini cauldron atop each plate for your guests, serving as both a decorative element and a dish for appetizers and Halloween treats.
Add little touches and accents to help round everything out. Let your imagination go wild and think up things that you can add to your haunted table setting. Add ghosts made from sheer cloth using pipes as a base, or perhaps pipe ladders where spiders and other creepy creatures can climb on. These accents can be scattered throughout the table, adding layers of intrigue.
There’s no setting quite like one that tells a story, and with these bewitching table setting ideas, your Halloween dinner will be talked about long after the candles have burned out. As your guests step into your dining area, let the magic of the season and the charm of PIPE DECOR® capture their imagination. Here’s to an evening of ghostly tales, delicious treats, and an unforgettable dining experience. Happy Halloween!
