Halloween Tablescape with Lights

Welcome to the first day of Autumn Jubilee!  Halloween is coming, and I had a fun time creating this tablescape for it.  There is more than just mine here as well, be sure to check out the Halloween Tablescape blog hop at the end of the post.

For my holiday table, I started with my black caldron set atop a quilted Halloween table topper. I had this garland, and I arranged it like the skulls were bubbling out of the caldron.

I added the white string lights winding the lights around the garland. This is the control unit, and I put it inside the caldron with the sensor peeking out the top so the remote control could work. Yes, I said remote control, more on that in a minute.  I ran the power cord under the garland and under a charger to plug it in.

In the daylight, the light string looks a bit like spider webs in the garland.  I fixed the cord that is showing before moving on with the centerpiece.

I added two glittery word plaques, one says “Spooky”…

and the other side says “Boo!”

At one end of the tablescape centerpiece, I placed a black cat crouching over a jack-o-lantern.

On the other end is a fun small jack-o-lantern with a happy face, a thrift store score.

I put black napkins in pumpkin napkin rings, also from the thrif store last year.

Then I got to the place settings. Here’s where I really had some fun, putting out my new Halloween plates I just got last week. I couldn’t resist them!! So cute, and each one is different.

There was a set of four, and I placed them on top of my white stoneware, all on the black chargers.

The plates are so shiny, I had to turn off the light over the table to get pictures, that is why they are a bit dark.

Aren’t they just too cute?

Now for the fun part, turn out the overhead lights, and grab the remote controller….

then, turn on the light set, and select the program you like.

There are eight different program light effects, along with ten settings for solid-on lights from very dim to fairly bright. The orange buttons will make the lights flash either slowly, or quicker, or in a flicker-flash. The blue buttons on the right side of the controller will do a gradual up and down of the lights from dim to bright, selecting how fast that happens. There is no way to really describe this, so I made a video for you to see some of the settings. The video runs about a minute and a half and will show most of the settings so you can see the fun you can have.  Be patient at the beginning, the lights are actually getting a bit brighter and dimmer but the first setting is pretty subtle.

Now, wouldn’t that be fun for a Halloween party or a buffet table!!  LTE Lighting Even Lights

Final touches on the tablescape, I added water glasses to the place settings and black candles.

And then took a few more pictures at night with the lights on, such fun!

The black cat with a happy jack-o-lantern looks a bit more menacing now.

  1. Hi Carole,
    Since the lights are not holiday specific (e.g., orange) there are just so many ways these may be used. WOW! It looks so pretty. I put out a few decorations for Halloween but nothing that elaborate. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I don’t usually decorate for Halloween but your table setting is great. I would like to use the lights at Christmas

  4. Oh Carole I am crazy about your Halloween plates! They are so cute and different from anything I’ve ever seen! Your spewing spooky cauldron with lights is wonderful fun! I am crazy about those little LED lights, they are great for everything. You are all set for spooky fun!

  5. So much spooky fun! How clever to use the skull garland spilling out of your cauldron and the illumination takes it over the top! I adore your plates! The images look familiar, I was trying to place the artist?

    Carole, you have such a knack for seeking out and finding just the perfect additions to make your tablescapes so darn cute, lovely or beautiful, depending on the occasion. Thanks for sharing it all with us.

  7. Would love to win the lighting set. I could use it on my staircase or the overhead beam. I could add a sewn banner to the beam. Thank you!

  8. These days there are so many fun things to work with for Halloween. Your table certainly shows that and I’m betting you had tremendous fun creating it.

    Love the plates! We do not have Halloween where we live. Very rural and seasonal resort area. Houses are too far between to make a good haul for trick or treaters!

  10. Rosemaryflower

    Oooh I love those adorable plates. skulls are so cool now. I love the ones that are inspired by day of the dead, sugar skulls.
    I would love to win the fat quarter shop gift certificate, or these cool lights

  11. Belle Bleu Interiors

    Thank you for sharing your halloween table. I love the way you incorporated lights into the centerpiece. So fun!

  13. Decorating on Thursday for our Halloween luncheon for shut-ins at my church. I love the idea of lights on the table and am digging out some Christmas ones to use and maybe next year will have battery operated ones!

  14. Susan Stanton

    Winning the LTE lights would be fun, especially after seeing how creative you were with them. Love the cauldron idea!

    Hello Carole; Your Halloween table setting is so delightful! Every item you chose fits perfectly with the next! I truly enjoyed your video demonstrating the lights along with every picture! Your new plates are so beautiful! I am so glad that you found them Carole! They truly do fit a Halloween themed table setting perfectly and I know you will be able to use them in so many ways through the years to come! Thank you for sharing your great and fun table with us and have a great day!

  17. Such a cute Halloween table. I do adore your plates. Using lights on your table is a lovely idea. I love using lights in our decor. A pleasure to join you on this blog hop.

  18. The lighting sequence is such fun, and again a superb table setting arranged for it. Perfect for our daughter’s wedding next year, an outdoor ceremony, and I can see these among the trees.

  19. You’ve created the perfect ambiance for your Halloween tablescape with those fantastic lights! I like how you created visual interest on each side of the cauldron centerpiece with the terrific sparkly signs and the scary cat and the jack-o-lantern. The Halloween plates are wonderful and having each plate with a different scene adds to the fun factor. I am really enjoying the start to the Blog Hop!

  20. We don’t decorate outside much for Halloween. You have some marvelous sponsors. Since I am a quilter, I would love to win anything fabric or tools for my sewing room. Too many lovely prizes to choose from!

  21. Teri Krugman

    As a infrequent quilter, I’d be thrilled to win any of the quilting related prizes. The Halloween table setting is so cool and the plates are so cute! So bring on the holiday!

  22. Rattlebridge Farm

    From the lights in the cauldron to those charming plates, your table is a celebration! The “Spooky” + Boo” sign is fun, fun, fun! Beautiful table, Carole!
