Happy Halloween! It is never too early to start planning for fall festivities, and with the start of October it’s the perfect time to think about your Halloween plans. I’m sharing 5 tips to help you set a glam Halloween table perfect for a spooky dinner party.

The fabulous thing about Halloween is you can go funky or eclectic, full on goth or simply playful. There are so many options with this autumn holiday. This year I’ve opted for a glam look with a traditional orange, black and white color scheme filled with funky pattern play and dramatic florals.

For that spooky element, I placed some creepy crows around the table and perched on top of the glass pumpkin as well as black candles for a touch of goth. Silly cocktail napkins that say “Here for the Boos” and black and white painted pumpkins keep this glam Halloween table cheeky.

5 Tips to Set a Glam Halloween Table
No. 1 Choose a Classic Color Scheme
By classic I mean something recognizably Halloween. You could opt for black, white, and orange like I did here or go for something more goth like black and red. Purple is also a spooky stylish choice!

No. 2 Mix Your Metallics
Glam is all about the bling bling, so you simply must amp up the drama with bright metallics. Use all three ( silver, gold, and copper)  in small touches like on the rims of stemware and china to keep your Halloween table chic.

No. 3 Play with Bold Patterns
Like I mentioned earlier, Halloween is permission to go a bit funky, so get playful with your patterns, mixing stripes and polkadots with leopard print and even florals. Keep your colors neutral or within the same palette so that the whole table harmonizes.

No. 4 Candlelight is Required
This one is obvious, but still worth mentioning because flickering candlelight is so important to set the spooky mood!  Opt for candles in unique colors like black, orange or purple to play up your spooky style.

No. 5 Add Dramatic Florals
Bring on the glam with dramatic florals in rich colors like orange, yellow, red, purple or even black. These orange peonies simply glow when layered next to the glass pumpkin and on top of this neutral leopard print. Use faux flowers to keep the tablescape longer or fresh ones if you are only decorating for an event.
