Ladies’ Halloween Party

Setting a Fun Table
Black and white work great as a color palette for a witch-themed tablescape, but don’t hold off on adding bright pops of yellow, orange, and lime green. The centerpiece is cleverly housed in the base of a slow-cooker insert, and the smaller arrangements sit in a pair of witch shoes found at a costume shop. Inexpensive witch hats were hung from the light fixtures using clear filament line. The table linens, dishware, and flatware are a fun mix of black and white patterns and textures, and the place cards were crafted from precut oval gift tags attached to scrapbook paper.
