    • Tasty Treats

      Set out black-and-orange bottled beverages, such as these Halloween drinks by Jones Soda, which come in fun flavors like Black Cat Licorice.

      Editor's Tip: Create an impressive drink display by using tiered shelf organizers to display your drinks in a stair-step fashion.

    • Daring Desserts

      Give desserts and appetizers a little Halloween flair with fun food toppers such as these skull-and-crossbones flags.

    • Spider Sprinkles

      Set a centerpiece on an orange table runner or plate and sprinkle spiders around. A little tacky wax will help keep bugs perched in precarious places.

    • Tantalizing Orange Tea Lights

      Line your table with orange tea lights in contemporary white holders. We love the punched-hole version shown here; it reminds us of a jack-o'-lantern.

    • Ghoulishly Goofy Straws

      Look for fun Halloween straws to serve alongside bottled beverages.

    • Orange Floral Centerpiece

      Choose bright orange florals for the centerpiece. For a frightening effect, opt for unusual or abstract designs over traditional flowers.

    • Modern Midnight Madness Tabletop

      Quickly dress up your table with a basic black tablecloth, dinner and salad plates in orange and black, and party napkins with a contemporary Halloween pattern.

    • Midnight Madness Place Setting

      Fold your dinner napkins in half and place them on top of the salad plates with a single orange gem or candy set on top. Turn the beverage napkins at a 45-degree angle and place them under your cocktail or water glasses.

    • Party Decor

      Vases with fluffy orange and black ostrich feathers and funky floral stems crawling with spiders work for perfectly petrifying party decor.

      Spider Candles

      Wrap orange and black pillar candles with Halloween-patterned paper, such as the spiderweb and orange dot designs shown here.

      Editor's Tip: To add height, flip black bowls upside down and use them as pedestals for your candles. Never leave lit candles unattended.
