For the October Pinterest Challenge, I’m sharing a spooky Halloween tablescape and decorated chandelier with my favorite bewitching, seasonal plates.
The monthly blog hop is hosted by Erlene of My Pinterventures. Its purpose is to motivate all to not just pin, but act on it! At the end of the post you’ll find links to lots of great projects, recipes and ideas by other bloggers. Bee sure to check them out!
My Eye of Newt table, centerpiece and chandelier is decorated with Halloween motifs, including eyeballs, spiders, witches and cats.
See the pin that inspired my pursuit of the Wiccan Lace pattern plates. But beware you don’t come under their spell too!
Then, park your broomstick and tour a spooky Halloween tablescape that’s more treat than tricks!

Under a Dish Spell
My spooky Halloween tablescape was inspired by several bewitching shots of dishes I spotted on Between Naps on the Porch. The source was Susan’s October 2013 blog post, Halloween Table Setting with Mercury Glass Pumpkins.
It also led me on a hunt to find the the two dish patterns pictured in her post. Although I came up empty on the Trick or Treat luncheon plate, I did have success finding the underlying dinner plate pattern.
Not So Wicked, Wiccan Lace Plates
Wiccan Lace is a Halloween dish pattern by 222 Fifth.
According to Replacements, the pattern was released in 2012 and is still active.
But, I challenge you to find Wiccan Lace pattern in stores today. I purchased mine in 2014 and 2015, being fortunate to find the the salad and appetizer plates at Marshalls.
The appetizer plates came in packs of four for only $8. One of my sets has scalloped edges, the other four small plates do not.
Each set came with four different Halloween motifs; a black cat (above), haunted house, skull and witch.
Which one do you like best? I’m partial to the witch riding her broom with her cat.
I continued to keep an eye out for Wiccan Lace dishes to add to my spooky Halloween tablescape. So far, at Michaels, TJ Maxx and Home Goods, I’ve come up empty. Occasionally, I do see the small plates in alternative orange, purple, green or blue.
The dinner plate, with the scalloped edge, was impossible to find.
Since I was spellbound, I splurged for them online. Be forewarned, they are typically priced at $18-$20 each — eek! That’s why I only have four.
If you are bewitched by Wiccan Lace, you might also enjoy seeing it in a Spooktacular Skeleton at the Feast Halloween Table.
Set a Spooky Halloween Tablescape
To set off the black and white lace print dishes, I started with a black spider web tablecloth set on my round glass kitchen table.
I found the tablecloth at a favorite haunt — Old Allegheny Shoppe. We recently visited there in Favorite Halloween and Fall Decor Shopping.
Reversible spider web napkins with silver napkin rings are set on each appetizer plate.
Vintage Cambridge Glass, Rose Point goblets and champagne glasses have a lacy look.
They belonged to my French great grandmother. I don’t think she ever imagined them in a spooky Halloween tablescape! See them also in Turkey Tureen is Star of Thanksgiving Table.
A trick, is using white spider web in the goblets to create the appearance of ghostly smoke. A candy eyeball treat, or an Eye of Newt, is placed in each champagne glass.
Dark orange chargers help to set the black and white dishes off from the spider web tablecloth. Copper twig flatware compliment the orange in the spooky Halloween tablescape.
Witch’s Cauldron Brews as Centerpiece
The Eye of Newt centerpiece sits in a black cauldron. Enchanted black roses with spooky eyeballs (Dollar Tree), spiders and bats rise from the brew.
Tiny, white candles surround the cauldron to add to the magical atmosphere. I purchase the candles whenever I find them at Home Goods, Marshalls and TJ Maxx. They come in a sleeve of 16 for about $8.
Orange silk florals and large eyeball picks from Michaels add eye-popping color. More spiderweb creates the illusion of a boiling brew.
See how I later reused many of the centerpiece elements to craft Eerie, Elegant Black Pumpkin Decor.
Look closely, and you can spot the spirit of the witch’s familiar — a black cat, rising from the smoking cauldron.
The witch herself, well she had a collision with the chandelier hanging overhead. I think maybe the fumes from the toxic potion went to her head?
Eye of Newt Chandelier
Witness to the crash were more of the black roses with eyeballs entangling the chandelier.
To cast a spell on the chandelier, I started with two fall leaf garlands from Michaels. The stiff grapevine candy corn garland (Old Allegheny) provides support for the black roses.
See Decorate a Chandelier for Fall in 3 Easy Steps for more tips and ideas. Or, check out a swinging skeleton in Jaw Dropping Halloween Chandelier.
That klutzy or intoxicated witch must be related to Hilda. She crashed into my front door in Gonna Need a New Broom, Witch Wreath.
Spider Jars Warning Lights
You would have thought the lighted string of jars with spiders inside would have warned her of an obstruction ahead?
Must have been a potent potion she was brewing!
The battery-powered string of lights and dangling witch legs were from Dollar Tree. They look best at night, even if my photography skills fail to demonstrate that, LOL!
Originally, embellished the chandelier with a purple witch hat and broom, also from Dollar Tree. But, when my husband thought it looked weird, I decided to pull them out and add them to the wreath instead. After all, Hilda is in need of a new broom!
Do you think the chandelier adds to the atmosphere in creating a spooky Halloween tablescape?
More Treats Than Tricks
Before her header into my chandelier, the witch was actually conjuring up treats for our guests.
The mini bat, pumpkin and cat baskets are made of paper mache.
I’ve had an assortment of them for several years and am now to the bottom of my stash. They made great favors filled with candy for the spooky Halloween tablescape.
All the candies — ghost and pumpkin lollipops, chocolate eyeballs, candy corn, and green witch fingers — came from Dollar Tree. There’s even an Eye of Newt in each table favor.
You know me and carrying a theme from start to finish! This time of year I guess I’m more a Scream Queen than Queen of Theme, LOL!
Aren’t they adorable? So cute and inexpensive too! I stocked up to make treat bags for little neighbor trick or treaters this year.

My word Debbee! You set a wickedly awesome tablescape for Halloween! This is fabulous! I want everything – from the spider web napkin holders, plates, candles and all the decorations, too!
Thanks Gail, I love creating tablescapes because I do something a little different each year. And, I’m always thrilled when I make a new find.
That is stunning, you must be a true Halloween fan. I thought a first they had be made using a cricut, well impressed that they are real printed plates.
Gee, thanks Anita! I’m not into gore and stuff, but I do like good ‘ol fashion fun with a little spooky. Plus, I love dressing up and costume parties!
Wow! That is such an impressive Halloween tablescape. I just love the attention to detail too. Those plates are fabulous!! Pinned.
Thanks Joanne, I had a lot of fun collecting the tableware and styling the tablescape. Those plates…just had to have ’em!
That Wiccan Lace is pretty spectacular. It truly has more of a lacy look than an all out web. I will gladly keep an eye out for that pattern for you. I know how frustrating it can be when you want to extend your stash but the pattern is nowhere to be found!!! Beautifully constructed table with so many special details!!! Even the least Halloween-oriented person would “fall under its spell”!!!
Glad you enjoyed the tablescape as I know you are a stylist extraordinaire in that regard!
I especially hate the one year and done dish patterns! Unfortunately, I have several seasonal patterns that I only have four settings. But, most you can mix and match I guess. I’d really appreciate if you ever see the WL dinner plates you’d grab ’em! I’d understand though, if you wanted to keep them. A follower recently inquired about our peacock dishes and I’m afraid I couldn’t even help her with a pattern name or manufacturer.
If I find them they are all yours! I have NO PLACE for them in our already overflowing storage!!!!!!! I’ll keep an eye out ?!!!
Oh my goodness what a great Halloween table, and those dishes are perfectly fantastic for a goolish tablescape. You pulled it all together so well and the hanging witch feet are awesome.
Thanks so much Toni. The dangling witch feet are actually on a headband and only a buck!
What a spooky and cute table. So perfect for Halloween. The black and white plates are amazing.
Thanks Jenny, I use those plates nearly everyday during the month of October. Good thing they are dishwasher safe!
Wow! This tablescape is magnificent. You thought of every detail. I would love to see it in person to take in each little thing. I love the plates, if I ever see any in my travels I will let you know.
Well Debra, if you’re ever in Pittsburgh please stop by for a spell!
Absolutely stunning, Debbee! Your talent for creating fabulous tablescape is so impressive. I love this. What a fun party this would be. I especially love the witch plate, too.
Thanks Beverly, you generous compliment made my day!
How spooktacular!! I know you had a ball putting it all together. Thanks for making my day. I don’t know where you store all this stuff!!….I have spring, autumn and Christmas dishes, but have to have at least 12 of each…so it is quite an ordeal finding storage. What fun you have!!
You so get me Carolyn — I did have a lot of fun putting it together! Storage is the bane of my existence, but does keep my shopping in check, LOL! I envy 12 of each of your dishes. When I started out, just 4 was a splurge. Luckily, I do have 12 complete place settings of my china and 8 each of two everyday patterns. Going forward, I’m pretty much sticking to just plates rather than place settings. At least you can stack dishes!
Debbee you do an amazing job with your details. The dishes are wonderful and I love the center arrangement. The chandelier is over the top cute- love those spider jar warning lights are the cutest!
Thanks Liz! I’ve been accumulating items for this table setting for years. Those $1 string of lights and witch legs really upped the ante on the chandelier.
Those plates are so pretty and perfect for Halloween!
Wow! What a presentation! Love the plates, but what really impressed me was the flowers with the eyeballs. So clever and creepy!
I figure between splurging on the dinner plates but finding a steal on those eyeball flowers at Dollar Tree, maybe it all balanced out 🙂?
Debbee, I hereby announce you to my Queen of all Party Decorations. I fell in love with your work when I stumbled over your tutorial on how to make the Tea Party hats and as of this date I was in mere awe whenever I read about your new creations. I know I repeat myself: But I sure would love to be invited to one or all of your wonderful parties. Loyal Follower I am, I will pin this to Pinterest and return whenever I need reference on how to decorate a Halloweeen table.
Habiba, I wish you could see me — blushing and smiling ear to ear! Oh my goodness, another queenly title! What an incredibly generous compliment. Thank you. I’m posting a second seasonal table on Wednesday, part of a Halloween Tablescape Blog Hop I hope you’ll enjoy too.
WOW! This setting is amazing!
Thanks Alexandra! EyeLoveKnots LovesEyeofNewt LOL?
Such cool decor! I love the plate with the haunted house!
Thanks for stopping by Roseann. I love the technique the artist used in creating the plate designs.
Oh, I love those Wiccan Lace plates! And you used them beautifully. Your chandelier decorations are darling, as are the baskets of candy at each plate. Happy Halloween!
Hi Joy! While at Dollar Tree for candy treats, I ended up picking up the witch legs (on a headband), spider jar lights, and roses with eyeballs. For about $10 I enhanced the chandelier and centerpiece for the cute Eye of Newt theme. I’m using that to rationalize splurging on at least 2 more of the WL dinner plates. If I don’t do it now, I’m afraid I’ll regret it down the road.
Debbie, this is a wonderully creative table. I have the Wiccan dinner plates and also a set of plates very similar but without the scalloped border. Like you, I bought them some years ago, but to be honest, I’ve never even set a table with them. Not sure why, just never got around to it. Perhaps this will be the year I’m inspired to set a fun table using these plates. I wish I had known you were searching for these plates.
Sarah, we like so many of the same things! It would be fun to meet in person someday. Can’t believe you’ve never used the Wiccan plates! I only have 4 and one day will splurge for 4 more if I can find the space for them. When I first set this table, I got all kinds of requests to buy mine off of me! So, if you decide to part with any please do let me know. In the meantime, I’ll look forward to seeing your table.
Absolutely LOVE the Wiccan Lace plates (especially the smaller size), but your chandelier is absolutely the star of the show! Fun and spooky table!
Thanks for stopping by Janet! If you like the little plates, they still show up occasionally in packages of 4 at TJ Maxx and Marshalls in orange and purple. I often decorate the chandy to compliment the small round table below — in lieu of a centerpiece that can crowd the table.
Beautiful table setting! I have the complete set for 8 of the Wiccan Lace dishes with the exception of the mugs, which I wouldn’t use so no sense buying them! I also have 8 of the small plates in orange which look fabulous paired with black and white ones. I wish I could share some pics, I don’t have a website or a blog. I am always inspired by what others do to decorate their tables. Keep looking for those dinner plates, there are a few sets of 4 available on ebay right now but as you mentioned, they are getting pricey.
Thank you Anna! How I envy your service for 8! Would love to see your table. Do you have Pinterest? Why don’t you post pictures there? That’s what I did before I started blogging. I had a boards for Favorite Tableware, and the holidays. And, you could participate in a group tablescape board where you could share your table with thousands!
I do have Pinterest but I have never uploaded pictures to it. I will have to check it out and give it a try after I finish my decorating! Thanks for the info. I will come back and leave you a link when I start the board!
Debbee, OMG your spooky tablescape is beyond words. Those dishes are perfect. I love them. Everything is so Halloween. You never cease to amaze with your tablescapes. I am in awe. Congratulations, your are being featured at Thursday Favorite Things. Hugs, Bev
Well Bev, I think you are aware of me going crazy with party themes? Halloween is no exception! Thrilled my biggest tablescape fan liked it so much — and thank you for the feature! If you love the Wiccan Lace dishes, you’ll enjoy my latest, Spooktacular at the Feast Halloween Table.
Hi Debbee, I finally got around to figuring out how to post my own pictures on Pinterest. I started following you so maybe you can check them. It is a developing project as I gain new pieces each year and I will take more pics and share them as I go along. Can’t wait to do my Halloween table this year as I have found some great new items! Loving our favorite Wiccan Lace dishes! Kindest regards, Anna
That’s great Anna, I will have to check out Pinterest (hopefully I can find you). That’s basically how I started posting on my personal P account for several years before starting the blog. I use it to keep track of all my dishes and decorations too. I think I may have “peaked” on Halloween table settings this past year with, Spooktacular Skeleton at the Feast Halloween Table. Not sure how many different ways I can arrange our fav dishes?
I love this table setting. Spooky, creepy and all things Halloween! Thanks for sharing on Sunday’s Best. I always look forward to seeing your creations.
So glad you enjoyed seeing the party Rhonda! I really do enjoy decorating and entertaining for Halloween. Used the same Wiccan Lace dish pattern for this year’s, Spooktacular Skeleton at the Feast Halloween Table — come have a seat!
Fun to see this table again! I still love it!
Did you see it in a link-up party? Your Lenox plates would probably mix and match well with my Wiccan Lace pattern.
So spooky creative ☺ however my favourite is the champagne glasses and goblets as such absolute treasures! HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO YOU & YOURS Brenda
Happy Halloween — Boo! — to you too Brenda! Those glasses are one of my very favorite things. Did you see them in Birds of a Feather Gather Together Table?
