Feast Your Eyes: Elevated Halloween In Black & White

Halloween…it’s not just for your little monsters! At Lenox, we love a haunting good time—especially when it’s updated for grownups to enjoy too. Here we’ve scared up a few clever ways you can enjoy a stylish (but devilish!) dinner party…one your guests will rave about forevermore. And for captivating contrast, we’ve set tables in black and white. Which of these grayscale extremes screams “Pick me!” for your table? 
 

Enter The Black Abyss 

Do you dare? Revive the spirit of Halloweens past using shadowy details—starting with Chelse Muse dinnerware in eerie ebony. You’ll want to stay dark with décor and accents too; misplaced color could suffocate the effect. Smoke-hued Tuscany Stackables and black Portola flatware make the perfect colorless combos for this spooky situation. Add vintage apothecary vibes using Halloween dessert plates featuring creepy icons, omens, and elixirs. 

Here’s an idea to die for: on-theme bites for your charcuterie board. Simply cut brie cheese into the shape of a coffin—a trapezoid base with a tapered top. Add “R.I.P.” to the headstone to complete your creation. 

 And for a fun DIY project that adds drama without breaking the bank, simply spray-paint tin cans matte black. Then introduce a deeply saturated floral arrangement with dark green, red, and violet to keep the color palette wicked. 

 Go As White As A Ghost 

For a supernaturally elegant tablescape, head to the opposite end of the spectrum and desaturate the table with ghostly pale elements, starting with stark dinnerware like Blue Bay White. This collection catches the eye with gold lines you can match with gilded elements like gold Portola flatware and Tuscany Stackables in a rich amber shade. 

Dreaming up party menu fare your friends will want to sink your teeth into? Serve “bloody” tartes! Whether homemade or handpicked from the bakery, opt for pastries made with a strawberry, raspberry, or cherry filling. (Just don’t get any very berry “bloodstains” on your otherworldly white table linens!)  
  

To further set the scene, go above and beyond (the veil) with simple DIY additions. Spray-paint branches bony white for a look that’s fancifully frightful…each twig will appear crawl out of its vase all on its own! Break up the color scheme by adding autumnal ferns and feathers to your centerpieces. And here’s a clever way to transform outdated Halloween décor into gilded table accessories: spray-paint them gold to match your party theme perfectly.
