I’m a big fan of “moody” for Halloween decor rather than scary. I don’t like gory and gruesome or anything that will keep me awake at night. But then “moody” can have its own unsettling feeling.

This Halloween table sets the mood with black candles and goblets.

Silver spiderweb placemats brighten this dark table. Click here to see how to make your own spiderweb placemats. There is a trick that makes them come together quickly.

Mismatched white plates with silver trim lend a light backdrop for the black bat napkins…

…while small vases of flowers keep the centerpiece very low for easy conversation.

Click here for instructions on this easy-to-fold bat napkin. You can stick on clear adhesive crystals for eyes to give your bats some glam!

A small piece of fern in each vase gives these flower arrangements a modern touch.

A few glass balls scattered throughout the centerpiece arrangement give a nod to crystal balls.

A black-sequined runner and a dozen small flower vases help balance out the Halloween placemats and bat napkins.

Use glitter, glue, self-adhesive crystals, and a little imagination to dress up plain black eye masks to hand to your guests for some masquerade fun.

A scary skull becomes glam with its own Halloween mask and a flower tucked at its side.

Is that a crystal wand in that goblet or colored-coordinated rock candy?

These black cat napkins work well for cocktails unless you are superstitious about black cats!

I dressed up an old silver wreath with a few bats cutouts. If you don’t have an old wreath lying around, then cut out simple bats from construction paper and stick them to mirrors, walls, doorways, or the ceiling. It is an inexpensive simple decoration, but it will add extra detail to make your party fun.
