I hosted a "Fright Night" dinner for my girlfriends last weekend and thought I would share my table setting with all of you. I am not much for "themes" or too much when it comes to holiday decorating, but I had fun putting this setting together for a casual girls night.
I kept the place mats casual and the napkins were paper in a preppy print, but orange for the occasion. The wax lips were a fun way to start the meal off with lots of laughs and pictures.
I found the skull votive candles at Z Gallerie on sale. The tiger striped pumpkins were a steal at Trader Joe's.
The glasses were a last minute addition that I found hidden away from when I received them as a wedding gift. The tulips were easy to put together.
1. Fill three containers with water
2. Trim off excess leaves off tulips and bring together in a bouquet bunch. Trim length down to an inch or two higher than the container.
3. Secure with a rubber band. Take one of the small leaves you trimmed off and wrap around the rubber band to hide it. Use a pin to secure (I used some old earrings).
That was dinner at my house on Saturday and my attempt at Halloween decorations for grown ups. The flowers are holding up great and I have to say it makes me want to get even more festive as the holidays come closer. At least a little bit.
