Halloween Entertaining Tricks & Treats
Can’t believe Halloween is just around the corner. And as much as you love the holiday, it snuck up so quickly, and now you’re left with deciding how you can prepare for those Halloween get-togethers without looking like you raided the Halloween section of your local craft store. There’s nothing wrong with a kitschy Halloween, but if your style is a little more formal, then we have a few simple ways to elevate your Halloween entertaining without the tackiness. These tips will still set the occasion for a spooky, yet still tasteful All Hallows Eve celebration.
Keep your table settings simple. The addition of a perfectly placed pumpkin at each setting was all we needed to complete the look.
Put your effort into creating a ghoulish centerpiece. This one was so easy to create, and it was a great conversation starter for the evening. To make, remove the labels from clear (not colored) wine bottles and place an off-white taper candle in each bottle. Hold a lighter at the base of the candle to melt the wax around the top of the bottle to secure it. Voila!
Speaking of candles, dim the lights and place candles and tea lights in various places to create a spooky setting all throughout your home.
Bring out your interesting glasses, decanters and serving pieces for the occasion. A collection of different colored glasses and various shapes of vases and decanters add interest and a little bit of mystery to your décor.
