Check out our Boho Luxe moody Halloween tablescape. This is a little less colorful than our usual look (and a lot more sinister). This dark and moody table is the stuff of dreams — er, nightmares — and even if you don’t love Halloween, there’s no denying the gorgeousness of this slightly Gothic dinner party scene.
From the fabric to the tiny dark details, the texture and the fading natural light, the overall concept is dreamy and beautiful. Want to celebrate Halloween in the most chic, adult way possible? Look no further than this to-die-for (pun intended) moody Halloween table scape – Boho Luxe Home style…
Our Bryony Storm Dorian fabric by the yard inspired our color palette and set the tone for the entire event. This textile is a moody floral pattern inspired by Britain’s infamous rain and fog. It was absolutely perfect for our Halloween tablescape. Moody – Yes! Dark – Yes! Slightly formal and definitely not your usual Halloween fare.
Bryony Storm comes in two colorways – Noir, which is deeper and more purple, and Dorian, which is softer and more gray.
Each place setting was made up of a gold charger, formal mid-century red-orange china, and a fun skull plate. Some were adorned with these little cast iron mice. Talk about creepy! And no dark and moody Halloween tablescape is complete without a bowl full of eyeballs. Amiright?
Our centerpiece truly made the table. We arranged dark flowers, fake black crows (yes, crows, available at most hobby stores this time of year) and greenery in tall vintage vases. We then added thrifted skulls, hobnail candy dishes and candles to the mix.
The black feathers and crows mixed with orange and violet flowers were the perfect pop for this Halloween dinner party. See, here are our feathered friends…
Of course, the design wouldn’t have been complete without some moody candlelight. These candles were the perfect solution for our old-world dark and moody Halloween vision. Plus, they’re actually battery-operated, so they won’t burn down the barn!
Oh – and is anyone up for a spider cupcake?!
To really turn up the creepiness, we brought in a large Renaissance-style bust that usually sits in the design studio. We completed her Halloween look by adding a black feathered mask. Nothing’s more unsettling than feeling like you’re being watched!
Candlelight, eyeballs, mice, and skulls with mustaches – that’s a perfect Halloween tablescape if we’ve ever seen one.
For at least some of our seating, we used frayed, worn and torn upholstered pieces. We had them on hand as we’re redoing some with our upholstery fabric, but you could probably thrift some inexpensively if you like the look. We loved that look of ‘decaying grandeur’ for our moody halloween party.
So pull up a worn out chair and enjoy a glass of wine, or two, with us!!
Happy Halloween month, friends. Stay creepy!
