Types of Table Decorations and Dining

Remember the lonely old jack-o'-lantern? For years, the carved pumpkin was virtually the sole accent for Halloween. Fortunately, that's no longer the case: Halloween is as festive as any other holiday, with table decorations and dining gear to match. There are Halloween table decorations and dining items for styles subdued and serious as well as exuberant and tongue-in-cheek. Those accents include tablecloths and linens, candles, flowers, pumpkins, Halloween figures, and dinnerware and serveware. Here's how to sort through the options and start building a set of spooky-inspired decorations you'll love.

Tablecloths and Linens

Halloween tablecloths and linens include runners, place mats, and napkins in a range of sizes. More subdued autumn-inspired patterns—just pumpkins or the season's signature colors—may be useable beyond Halloween.

Candles and Candleholders

Plain-color candles in Halloween colors may be a nice contrast to an elaborately carved candleholder. Or seasonal candles might include images such as spiders. Either way, these can be used in centerpieces or as table-setting accents.

Flowers

Flowers in seasonal colors—a natural choice for a centerpiece—are also a nice way to accent Halloween decor. Try unusual blooms or foliage to provide texture on your tabletop.

Pumpkins

Pumpkins, of course, are almost a requirement for Halloween. Fresh pumpkins are still a staple of table decorating and dining, but faux pumpkins in a range of sizes and colors are also nice options that last from year to year.

Product Features

Product Features

Differences in product features in Halloween table decorations and dining items affect both length of their use and your enjoyment of them, as well as their life span. It's important to take your time and review each item and how it fits in with what you have—or what you plan to purchase. That includes colors and patterns as well as material of the Halloween table decorations and dining pieces. Here's a short reminder of what to consider.

Colors and Patterns

Halloween table decorations and dining items can be designed with a variety of colors—some very specific to the holiday, others more generic—as well as patterns that give them a distinctive look.

Material

Some Halloween table decorations and dining items are made from relatively durable materials, including fabric, ceramic, and heavy plastic (such as serving bowls).

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Halloween table decorations and dining items differ based on how long you wish to use them. Some are designed specifically for easy disposal and use—which also means buying new every year. Other pieces will last as long as they're properly cared for—but probably cost more, too. As you think about your lifestyle and budget as well as decorating needs, keep in mind these purchase considerations to find the Halloween table decorations and dining items that work best for you. They include care and storage, durability, versatility, and replacement opportunities. Here's a guide to review.

Care and Storage

Items that are intended to be used from year to year will last longer if they are properly cared for, but those care instructions vary based on what the item is made of. For example, some plastic bowls may not be dishwasher-safe. You will also likely need the appropriate containers to store your pieces.

Durability

The types of materials used to make Halloween table decorations and dining items will affect how long you're able to use them. For example, paper napkins and plates are created for one-time use, as are plastic tablecloths.

Versatility

The things you love should also be the things you use. Halloween table decorations and dining items that are very distinctive may have less versatility when it comes to other autumn-related events and days.

Replacement Opportunities

A one-of-a-kind set of Halloween plates may add panache on the tabletop, but if one piece breaks, it might be difficult to find a replacement. Investigate whether you can replace items.
