    • 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.

      SOURCE Tiered shelf organizers: containerstore.com.

    • Daring Desserts

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

      SOURCE Food flags: Michaels.

    • 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.

      SOURCE Tea-light holder: IKEA.

    • 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.

      SOURCE Artificial orange stems: Jo-Ann Stores.

    • 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.

      SOURCE Melamine plates and skull napkins: Target.

    • 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.

      Spider Candles
