Girls' Night Halloween Table Ideas

Entertaining guru Jennifer Sbranti shares table decoration ideas for a girls' night glam Halloween party, complete with glittery pumpkins and rhinestone-adorned skulls.


    Everything in this slideshow

    • Ghoulish Tablescape

      For a funky and frightening tabletop, start with a black tablecloth and create a table runner from pink and black papers with geometric prints, such as the 12x12-inch scrapbook papers pictured here.

      SOURCE Scrapbook paper:

    • Daring Dress-Up

      Set out an array of costume makeup and props, such as black lipstick, feather boas, and black or glow-in-the-dark nail polish. Invite guests to adorn themselves -- at their own risk -- and make sure to capture the results on camera!

      SOURCE Tombstone:

    • Pink-Skull Centerpiece

      Make a shocking pink skull the superstar of your centerpiece. Paint a large foam skull with hot-pink acrylic paint. Use a black flowerpot or planter as a pedestal for your pink skull, and adorn it with ribbon and oversize rhinestones. Run an inexpensive strand of silver chain at the base of the centerpiece.

      Editor's Tip: Two or three coats of paint are usually necessary to get the solid, even finish, but the extra work will be worth it. Make sure to let paint dry completely between coats.

      SOURCE Black candlesticks: IKEA.

    • Cute & Creepy Candle

      Wrap a black pillar candle with decorative Halloween paper, such as the skull-pattern paper pictured here. Adorn the paper with a ribbon and pink rhinestone crystal for a cute (kind of creepy) candle.

      Editor's Tip: Be sure to cut the skull paper a little shorter than the height of the candles. And for safety, never leave lit candles unattended.

    • Perfect Place Setting

      Add a splash of color to your place settings by layering hot-pink plates or chargers under solid black plates. To keep things affordable, place hot-pink-rimmed paper plates underneath shimmery black melamine dishes.

      SOURCE Melamine dishes: Target.

    • Ghoulish Napkin Ring

      Creating napkin rings from strips of decorative paper gives affordability a chic look. Enhance them with an oversize craft rhinestone on the top of each ring.

    • Dying for a Drink

      Add a girlish touch to your drink display with a hot-pink wine opener.

      SOURCE Pink wine opener:

    • Spiderweb Wine Labels

      Wrap wine bottles with decorative black Halloween paper, such as the spiderweb pattern pictured here. Adorn your new labels with rhinestone skull motifs.

      SOURCE Rhinestone skulls:

    • Pretty-in-Pink Drink Charms

      Glue a tiny hot-pink rhinestone over one eye of each of several plastic skull novelty rings. Then slip a ring onto the stem of a wine or cocktail glass for a perfectly themed drink charm. (If necessary, slit the ring band to fit around the stem.)

      Black & Pink Pumpkins

      Paint regular or faux crafts pumpkins with black and pink crafts paint. (It may require more than one coat of paint, especially for pink.) Add some sparkle by sprinkling on matching glitter while the last coat of paint is still wet.
