DIY This Spooky Boudoir Tablescape for a Fabulous Halloween

I love Halloween: But when I decorate I don’t do black and orange, too literal! Instead I like moody, dark tones that give a spooky chic feeling. This year, I chose a Spooky Boudoir theme for my table. I started with a palette of purple, burgundy and black, added silver glitter-covered skulls decorated with jewels (and lashes!), and black-painted candlesticks with crimson candles. Stack your Effortless Table plates on DIY Feathered Chargers and top them with Jeweled Spider Napkin Rings. The final touch? A feather boa artfully swagged along the wall. Sexy and scary!!
