Halloween Revelry

As the air grows colder and the nights start sooner, we enjoy the chilling frights of the spooky season—Halloween. The forest glades we enjoyed all summer, now become haunts for ghouls and our well-tended vegetable patch a home for autumn pumpkins. With delightful shivers and spells we’ve embraced the season for a dark and elegantly inspired Halloween evening.

Set against inky black pots, your indoor plants suddenly take on a more stately character, rife with mysterious shadows and eerie shapes. Add in a bit of dried moss to heighten the effect, surrounded by natural textures, and you’ve created a natural spectacle for Halloween.

Black pillar candles create strong vertical lines in a rich, layered tablescape for a magical evening. The warm glow of candles contrasts beautifully with a spread of sombre tones, and creates flickering shapes to delight and fright. 

Our natural wood table is strewn with moss and natural curiosities that could just as well end up in a cauldron. Gathering berries and branches from cuts and the garden, we emphasise twisty shapes and dried textures, layered with linen and mixed metals. Creating strong silhouettes with stems in vases or draping lichen, captivate the eye and invite the unsuspecting guests to the table.

With tricks and treats, we celebrate the season, casting a spell for the evening as we enjoy a magical experience with family and friends. Cast your own autumn charms as you create an elegant and moody table for revelry and spooky fun.
