I love creating festive tablescapes, so when Birch Lane reached out I knew I was going to have such a fun time designing a table that felt like Halloween to me. Some like to go with spooky Halloween, but that has never been my direction. I like to use pumpkins, bones and skulls, but not in a scary way. Layering lots of textures and using warm tones has always been my direction.
I knew I wanted to create a solid base and then add from there and that is exactly what the Denby Studio Craft Pasta Bowl did. This ombre stoneware has the perfect natural, informal style for our family. On top of the bowl I layered a smaller Denby Studio Rice Bowl which I feel is the perfect size for a side dish. The ombre colors of these dishes helped create a variation on the table that I just loved.
To finish off the table setting I knew I wanted to incorporate a linen napkin and some great flatware. The Jartavius napkin comes in a variety of colors; I choose the terracota. And then for the perfect touch of contrast I selected the Cubit Stainless Steel flatware set in black.
For added texture on the table, I thought the textured resin pumpkin set gave the perfect amount. The varying sizes made for a balanced amount of visual movement.
And the star of this show, or the work horse I could also say is the LeCreuset Cast Iron Braiser that will help me create all the delicious Fall and Winter comfort food for my family. I selected the Meringue color because this warm white is just the perfect complement to our existing cookware.
And lastly, a few added touches of different materials were the Flaire tapered candles and the Tuscany short glasses. When I design a space within my home I always want to focus on what can transition to the next season or holiday; I see you Thanksgiving. I’m very confident that I can create another unique tablescape with these same items; minus the skull.
Do you go spooky with your Halloween decor or keep it similar to mine?
