Halloween is on a Friday this year, and while the beginning of the night may be about trick-or-treating and time with the kids, there is certainly time for adult celebration afterward. Hometalk – the largest home and garden social network on the web – is here to help you throw an eerie yet elegant Halloween dinner party.
From dreadfully delightful décor to frighteningly festive furnishings, here’s a roundup of their selections for the top 5 Halloween table settings.
Ripped cheesecloth or shredded black webbing make great table runners, and can be arranged messily around platters and bottles for a creepy clingy texture.

If you’re really looking to spook your guests, place an intimidating gargoyle yard statue in the center of your table – the ultimate stare down! Spooky Utensils Switch out regular drink bottles for glass bottles labeled with poison warnings and skull and crossbones.
Decorate the entryway of your dining room with warning and “keep out” signs, to keep with the Halloween spirit and theme.
