  • Seven deadly steals to get your halloween table looking spine-chillingly good!

    All Hallow’s Eve, Day of the Dead, Fright Night – whatever you call it, it’s creeping up quickly so you best get your Halloween table decorations ready to throw a party people will remember. We’ve rounded up the seven deadly steals you’ll need to get off to a terrifying start. Who needs to go out when you can bring Halloween home!

    Terrifying tableware

    Serve up your finest eye-ball stew on these fab Skeleton Crew paper plates (£3.50, Talking Tables). As hilarious as they are spooky, they’re a fun addition to a Halloween feast and you can buy napkins and cups to match.

    Blood-curdling candlelight

    Low lighting and candles are key for a spooky feel, so get your hands on these Halloween Pumkin Tealights (£3.50, John Lewis) to add an Autumnal glow to your party. Maybe more cheery than spooky but they add some fun to the table all the same.

    Deadly dinnerware

    Not just for your Halloween party, but an excellent addition to the fearsome feast. Zara Home’s Black Damask Cutlery (from £4.99 per piece) is super stylish and gives the ultimate gothic touch.

    Spine-chilling shakers

    Give your guests a fright when they season their supper with these glass Skull salt and pepper shakers (£12, Paperchase).

    Poisonous potions

    Forget the carafe; have some fun serving up poisonous potions in these brilliant bottles from Not on the highstreet (£7). Add some green food colouring to your concoctions to really freak your guests out.

    Fancy fire starters

    The Devil is in the detail. Use as Halloween party favours, so your guests get to take something away to remember the horror, or simply flaunt as another clever accessory. The Joy of Light’s Skull matchbox can be found at Amara (£5).

    Freaky fun

    The photobooth has become a bit of a party must-have, but with the Spooky Photo Booth kit from M&S (£5) you don’t even need to leave the table! The kit contains a frame and multiple accessories to make sure you have some fun snaps at the end of an eerie evening.
