Black tulle sets the mood on the table. The colors are the defining colors of All Hallow's Eve: orange and black, with silver and white added to enhance the candlelight.
Spiders and crows have joined the celebration!
More sparkle from the centerpiece. Who doesn't have a Revere-style bowl?
The cordial glasses were withdrawing into the shadows, so I added decorative ornaments to each one. The goblets are a classic design, their black stems continuing the Halloween color scheme.
And every table needs flowers!
The laboratory flasks and potion jars up the shudder quotient.......
While the skull and bat chargers hint at vague menace in the dark.
And the moon rises...........
