If you can believe it, I just got home from Dallas to a bunch of snow on the ground! I feel like we just skipped right over fall. If you saw my last post on our Rustic Harvest Gold Fall Tablescape, I promised that I would show you how I was going to transition it for Halloween. So, today, I am sharing my new Elegant Halloween Tablescape with Fresh Hydrangeas and how easy it was to do.

Elegant Halloween Tablescape with Fresh Hydrangeas
Using black and white elements for both tablescapes is part of what made this so easy. I only had to make a few minor changes with the place settings and the centerpiece.
Here are a few “before” and “afters”…
Simple changes to the place settings
All I had to do was change out the harvest gold features for any shade of orange. For the place settings, I kept the black linen table runners, woodgrain chargers, dinner plates, black and white check napkins, and black wine glasses.
Then, for this new tablescape, I added in the taupe salad plate, the pumpkin soups bowls, the black spider napkin rings, the smoke water goblets, and the black twig flatware. Each of these items added a little touch of Halloween flair without going crazy.
Changes to the centerpiece for this Elegant Halloween Tablescape with Fresh Hydrangeas
For the centerpiece, I wanted to add a touch of elegance, so I decided to feature fresh white hydrangeas (from Trader Joe’s). And, what perfect vessels would there be than real pumpkins (also from Trader Joe’s)??
They were a snap to put together! Simply, cut the tops off, remove all of the seeds, and place a small container inside to hold the water and flowers. No arranging skills necessary!! You could easily use faux hydrangeas and/or pumpkins to create longer-lasting arrangements.
To wrap things up, I just added in a few orange and white pumpkins, both faux and real. Sometimes, you can’t even tell the difference.
If you keep your tables set through the seasons, it can really make things easier on you if you think of ways to only have to make minor adjustments to your table as you move to the next holiday. For example, there are so many great ways this table setting could be transitioned to Christmas using the black and white (I think I see a post on that coming!!).
I hope you enjoyed seeing how I transitioned this table to an Elegant Halloween Tablescape with Fresh Hydrangeas. Praying for some snowmelt today so that we can get to a normal fall!
